The SEGA CDX, the cream of the crop when it comes to SEGA systems in my book. This thing is a beauty to behold. When you hold it in you hands, you can tell your holding a nice piece of hardware. It is heavy and feels well constructed, and if you ever open it up (which you should NEVER do) you will see that the same quality appears on the inside as far as construction is concerned. It is bristling with ports and buttons on all sides, plays SEGA Genesis, SEGA CD games and music CD & CDG’s. It’s basically a portable SEGA CD / Music player, but I would love to see someone jogging down the street with this thing strapped their hip! It uses standard SEGA Genesis controllers and the same AV cable as the Genesis 2. It has 1/8” audio out port with volume control, and all the buttons of a standard CD player.

Same story here, I never had one back in the day. I do remember however seeing the box in Toy R Us, which I believe was the only chain allowed to sell the unit! It was released at the end of the SEGA CD era, and was discontinued along with the SEGA 32X as the SEGA Saturn was on its way. I of course own one now and I love it. I have had many units and they are a bit finicky when it comes to the CD drive, if it’s broken, good luck fixing it. But get you a good working one (from our store!) and own a great piece of gaming history.SEGA_CD_Model_1_2_Information_Specs.htmlSEGA_Genesis_Accessories_1_3-Button_6-Button_Arcade_Controller_Wireless_Flight_Stick.htmlHow_SEGA_AV_Audio_Video_Cable_RF_Box_RCA_Composite_S-video_Component_HD_for_Genesis_CD_32x_Saturn_Dreamcast.htmlSEGA_Genesis_1_2_3_Information_Specs.htmlSEGA_CD_Model_1_2_Information_Specs.htmlSEGA_32X_Information_Specs.htmlSEGA_Saturn_Information_Specs.htmlhttp://shop.gametrog.comhttp://shop.gametrog.comshapeimage_2_link_0shapeimage_2_link_1shapeimage_2_link_2shapeimage_2_link_3shapeimage_2_link_4shapeimage_2_link_5shapeimage_2_link_6shapeimage_2_link_7

I have had may units and they are all the same. I don’t believe there were any major modifications ever made to the unit. As it was only around for about a year and is basically itself a revision of the SEGA CD. But instead of putting it on the CD page, I thought it deserved its own page.


Compared to the Genesis/CD combo, it has all the connections of a Genesis 1 & CD 1 combo. 2 Audio outs! with volume, one for your home stereo and another for headphones! Video out uses the same cable as the Genesis 2 & 3. In addition it has a battery compartment for AA batteries, but this will only power Music CDs, not games. For gaming you need the power supply, which is NOT the same as any other SEGA units, dang it!
