    One of the greatest of all time. I still think the SNES was epitome of console gaming, tho.

    Not those kind of channels. Channels refers to the processing channels. They are listed right there under where it says 5 channel as 2 Square wave, 1 Triangle wave, 1 noise and 1 PCM.

    I agree, both the NES and SNES were amazing and I still have some goodies for both. Hell I still have a fully functioning and perfect condition Super Scope for the sNES. That thing was a blast back when.

    There is/was a better way , i use a Q-tips & water one end of it & pass on the contacts inside the cartridge then dry it out with the dry side of the Q-tips , works like a charm.
