Mike Chi has announced the RetroTINK 4K will go on sale in just over a week: Saturday December 9th at 2PM PST / 5PM NYC Time. These are NOT pre-orders – They’ll start to ship right away in the order they were purchased. My “intro” video above should give you all the info you’ll need on it, however there’s been a ton of new additions since that will be included with the launch day firmware. Lots more info to come, but here’s the link for when it’s ready:

One question I can answer now: Is this for you? I think if you have an OLED TV and love gaming of any generation, or older movies and TV shows (in any format), you should absolutely consider this. I mean, you’ve already spent a few grand on your OLED TV, so this is just upgrading it further.
That said (and I mean ZERO disrespect by saying this – I often fall into this category), if you’re the type to buy budget TV’s and would rather settle on a cheap soundbar than a full surround sound system, don’t spend the money. The RetroTINK 2x Pro is probably a great fit and if you’d like to take it even further, the RetroTINK 5x is still equally awesome; Don’t forget, it’s on it’s third (FREE) complete firmware overhaul and is basically a fully upgraded product from launch day.
…and how about the other scalers? Honestly, they’re awesome too. I think while some companies like to project an air of competition, there really doesn’t need to be any. We have DIY solutions like the GBS-C that start at $50. Then the TINK 2x Pro and OSSC are around $150 and are a perfect fit for many people; Just choose depending on what cables you’re looking to connect.
Then we have the mid-high range scalers like the OSSC Pro, RT5x and Morph that cover the $300 – $400 range. All have their own unique use case and I truly think all are a good choice for certain setups.
And of course, we have the RT4K – The most powerful and most expensive gaming scaler ever made at $750. Truly the “BVM of scalers™”. Not everyone’s going to need it. But after seeing all it’s features broken out in detail, I’m sure you’ll all want it. Expect a lot more content from me in the coming months breaking it all down…
Thank you everyone for your patience!
RT4K will go on sale December 9th at 2PM Pacific Time!
We will start shipping immediately from inventory, but expect that the whole batch will take until Jan. 15 to finish fulfillment.https://t.co/h5gZRQPpyb
