The new Dual arcade coffee table – Coming soon!
We’ve all been working hard on the new Dual arcade table and it’s looking pretty sweet! But why should we keep it all to ourselves?
Dual Arcade Table Re-Design
Where to start!
Why the re-design? Well, we felt the original design a little outdated. It also didn’t lend itself to any flexibility to personalising which we often get asked about and offer on both our other home arcade systems. Another reason was to reduce the assembly time in order to enable us to ship quicker.
A quick run down of the first unit in the photo shows the new Dual sporting a pair of solid walnut legs with our familiar paintwork in black gloss. The top is tinted and toughened and the speakers are discreetly located at each end.
Opposite Arcade Controls
You want to go straight to the main event? OK, so pull out the control panel drawers on both sides to give you 2 players with alternate play on the flipped screen. Not shown here (as we weren’t yet up and running), the 19″ display is located under the toughened glass. It’s tinted at the right level so as you can’t see anything other than the games themselves, but plenty bright enough in daylight.
Arcade control panel
The new Dual features the original drawer mechanism to hide the arcade controls away when not in use. We fit with Sanwa JLW arcade joysticks. These are switchable between 4 and 8 way by a lift of the control panel and rotation of a plate. Also fitted are Happ arcade buttons, designed to take a bashing over and over again. All mounted on our bolt-less metal panel which folds away when pressing the release mechanism which is easy to reach but located out of sight.
Arcade Table Legs
We’re really proud of this feature. You can choose from a selection of timbers which will include walnut (pictured), oak and ply just like our Retrograde and Nucleus systems. But what if you decide to change your decor, or even move? Well we can ship out another pair of legs to match that can be fitted in under 5 minutes.
Arcade table speaker covers
We fit our system speakers with a sturdy, medium weave acoustically transparent black cloth. For the first time, we’re going to be offering colour options here. We’re looking forward to seeing some of the customer choices when combined with the choice of timbers!
The one cable you can’t do without and most people aren’t willing to have a socket installed into the floor. Well, we’re doing our best to keep the table looking as clean as possible by creating a tidier cable trail by incorporating a slot into the legs. The cable can be run out in either direction and at either end.
Arcade table power button and volume control
You’ll have to excuse this photo. You really are getting a sneak preview here! This will be updated as soon as we have the panel up together.
What’s this flap about? Previously, the power switch and volume control were located underneath. We’ve taken a good think about this and found a new place for them. Just click open the pop-out panel to access the power and volume. Not only that, we’ve managed to fit a USB charger option in here too. After all, we all need our devices in sight, right?
Customisable Arcade Table
We will be able to fit the Dual out with LED lighting underneath which is remote controlled and looks pretty cool during those late night game sessions.
To really complete the customisation options, we will in the future be offering the ability to change the gloss faces for anything of your choice using vinyl wrapping. The panels are easily swapped too, so if you fancy a change a couple of years down the line, we can ship something different out.
Feel free to get in touch on any of the above or if you want to ask about any other custom options. We will be updating the Dual page soon. In the mean time, you can keep an eye on what we’re doing behind the scenes on Instagram and Facebook.
