We believe partnering with other likeminded companies is a great way to help each other out and ultimately make products that are better for the end consumer. We have many distributors and partners around the globe who sell RetroSix products, you can find them by simply searching for "RetroSix Country Name" such as "RetroSix Germany" in google in your country for top results. The menu system seems to be clear and easy to navigate around, but it would be wise to turn off the GUI sounds, as the are pretty loud and would probably get on most people’s nerves after a while. The audio sound of things are pretty good as most of the games sounded like how I remembered on the original consoles. There are options for audio enhancement, with audio interpolation and also a bass and treble boost. But I found that the latter options really muffled the audio up on a few of the games I played and I left them switched off.

The developers behind the RetroArch project claimed "the RetroN 5 violates several licenses". This was because the console used the Genesis Plus GX and SNES9x Next emulators to launch some games. Both of the emulators are filed under a non-commercial license, thus meaning they cannot be used in commercial products, such as the RetroN 5. [24] So many things these days are mass produced, not designed to last, and make as cheap as possible for as much money as possible. We started RetroSix not as a mass market business, instead with the aim of perfection. Recreating moulds of original shells, casting them from quality ABS, redesigning hardware such as power supplies, USB-C, audio and more, to upgrade your consoles to the highest quality available. No cheap junk sold for profit. Pitcher, Jenna (28 November 2013). "Hyperkin delays RetroN 5 until Q1 2014". Polygon . Retrieved 19 August 2015.

This article is about a series of video game consoles. It is not to be confused with Retron, a sequence of DNA. But if Hyperkin can resolve some of the main issues, It could be one of the better clone consoles out there. McFerran, Damien (4 August 2017). "Hyperkin Reveals HDMI SNES Clone, The Supa RetroN HD". Nintendo Life . Retrieved 5 August 2022. Because the RetroN 5 boasts an SD card slot, it’s possible to upload cheat codes and upgrade the system’s firmware, when such an update becomes available. This latter point means that Hyperkin can improve the performance of the console and iron out any kinks, such as the aforementioned save wiping issue.The potential of the Retron 5 is there, but it’s let down because of outstanding compatibility issues and other little missteps. A re-release, known as both the RetroN 1 HD and RetroN HD, came out in 2017. It has HDMI output and a controller that more closely resembles that of the NES. [8] [9] IGN believed that Hyperkin released the RetroN HD in response to Nintendo's discontinuation of the NES Classic Edition. [10] The console received a mostly positive review from GameSpot.
