Thanks to the convenience of digital cameras, I've finally got some pictures of my Takky to post.
Also, I felt guilty letting jt carry so much of the hacking content here.
My Colour Classic Takky, in all its glory.
Inside is a 6360 logic board. I used the VGA mod on the video. The internal speaker was replaced with one from a Powerbook 520. The speaker sits in front of the 630 harness.
Also noteworthy, if you look to the lower right, you can see a concrete stepping stone I made out of Pentium I and 486 CPUs
The Colour Classic from the back. Two PCI slots available, one with a 10/100 ethernet card.
Here’s where the motherboard goes. The frame of the CC was cut in such a way that the 630 harness it tabbed, so it can be removed easily by pushing some of the frame plastic out of the way.
Thanks to the two-slot PCI riser, there’s pretty much zero space for anything on the right side.
The floppy housing was cut to allow the video input card to fit, and now has a small screw holding it in place, as the mounting tabs were cut off.
The real guts of the analogue board.
To the left is the slim 3.5″ 1 gig Seagate SCSI drive, and to the right of the yoke is the extra power supply from All Electronics powering the hard drive and supplying the 3.3V necessary for the 6360 logic board.
Here’s the messy wiring that make all these extra bits get along.
Just to the left of the yoke is the 12V relay that turns on the second power supply.
I'm quite pleased with the system. The only hiccup I still have to address is the sound is distorted - the PB speaker obviously isn't up to the task, and there's interference on the screen when the drive heads move, which I'm hoping I can solve by modifying the shielding.
