I saw that the new XEP80-II was in stock at the BrewingAcademy and so I ordered one. Amazing device. I’ve made some videos showing it in use with my NUC. The best feature of the XEP is that it’s a HDMI upscaler for your 8bit now, in addition to being a nice 80 column text device!
Retrotink 2x – $80
XEP-80 Assembled – $150
If you are thinking of getting a RT consider if the XEP could be what you need.
The XEP80-II can now replace my RetroTink for HDMI output for the Atari.
