Atari Video Music - Story, Teardown, Restoration, and S-Video Mod - Part 1

Join me as I embark on a mission to restore my Atari Video Music, Atari’s trippy music visualiser from 1977. In this 2-part special I’m going to be replacing the woodwork, designing an s-video output mod, and converting the device to run on a UK 230V power supply.
