Coin-Op : Arcade : Dragon's Lair : DL/SA PCB rev A Details


Primary logic board. Serial numbers below 6,000. Used the PR-7820 laser player. Requires hardware modification to use the LD-V1000 player. For conversion cards (like the Hi-Tech card) the card must be set to use PR-7820, and the board should be set to PR-7820 (if using DLE style ROMs).
