Looking for An Atari ST Monitor or Atari adapter cable to use a VGA Tube or LCD / LED Monitor?  Find out how you can get 2 ST monitors in 1, using Best Electronics Featured product.

Most Atari ST owners do not know that there is a group of Multi Sync tube and LCD Monitors that will work on the Atari 520ST/ 520STFM/ 1040ST/ 1040STE/ Mega 1- 4 / Stacy / MegaSTE Atari Computers!  Why a Multi Sync Monitor on an Atari computer you ask? Here is a short list of reasons why you should consider using The Best Custom made ST Multi Sync monitor adapter cable (Custom Atari ST 13 Pin Male molded round connector to HD15 Female molded video connector) with a Multi Sync Monitor on your Atari ST computer:

CB102582-6 2nd  $54.95

CB103129 HD15 to HD15 Male to Male Gender changer $2.95

1. On Most Multi Sync Monitors (on the 2 Lists below) you will get Three Atari ST Monitor Screen Resolutions, Low color, Medium color and High Resolution Monochrome on the same monitor!

2. In most cases (but not all), depending on the Multi Sync Monitor screen size you will get a larger Monitor Display (than Stock Atari color ST Monitors) but usually not full screen size in Monochrome mode, with normal outside black border around the monochrome display, like the original Atari SM124 display but just a much larger viewable Monochrome display.

3. Dot Pitch (quality of the Display) on most of the Multi Sync Monitors is usually Better than the Stock Atari ST monitors.

Jan J. of Sweden  "Now I have tried the Cable" Best ST Multi Sync adapter cable "together with my Atari Mega4 + Megafile 30.  Works great ! and what a big screen !  Now I can start to make music again with Notator."

4. Using a standard Monitor switch box, you could even connect up a second PC based computer and have it work on the same Multi Sync Monitor.

5. Most of the Multi Sync Monitor brands and Models listed below have been around for a little while (also many people have been upgrading to a LCD displays), and can usually be picked up at Bargain Prices at Local Electronic Shops / PC dealers / Swap Meets / Electronic Surplus houses / Electronic Recycling Centers.

Alex O. of France  Purchased a Reconditioned Atari Stacy 4 and the Best ST Multi Sync adapter cable.  "Everything is working nicely and I was even able to use a cheap 32" LCD TV  for B&W with the cable and the needed HD15 gender changer.  I follow your advice ( turn off the Stacy LCD display ) and use the Best ST Multi Sync adapter cable for an external Stacy mono chrome display.  The external display is better and even excellent with brightness off for the Stacy screen anyway"  

John D. of CA  "I hooked the Mega 2 to a 21 inch Superscan Pro 21 Hitachi monitor and Hi Rez works great.  I never thought I would see a Atari screen on a 21 Inch Monitor.  Neat cable"

6. Many of the Multi Sync Monitor Brands and Models listed below were shipped all around the world and Set up for each countries different Operating Voltages (110/220/240 Volt).  It is a lot cheaper cost wise, to ship the Best Multi Sync ST Monitor Adapter cable across the US or World Wide, than ship a complete ST Monitor.  Also there is less of a chance of a shipper damaging a cable assembly compared to a complete boxed heavy ST Monitor.

Atari Tech Tip:  Before you consider getting the Best ST Multi Sync adapter cable, double check your Multi Sync Monitor, LCD, TFT or Plasma display Cable end or input Video connector to make sure that it is a Male HD-15 connector,  so that will mate up with the Best ST Multi Sync adapter cable HD-15 Female output connector.  If you do have a Female HD-15 connector on your video display or video display cable, you will need a HD-15 to HD-15 Male to Male gender changer which are in stock.  

Bill D. of NJ  "I received your cable today."  One of Bests ST Multi Sync adapter cable to Multi Sync Tube and LCD Monitors, to replace the standard Atari made ST Monitors   "I'm very excited for a few reasons, but first I wanted to thank you very much for your speedy ordering and delivery process.  But I'm doubly excited, because when I connected this to my Coby LCD TV-TF1514 color TV with VGA inputs, it appears it can natively handle ALL the ST resolutions WITHOUT a converter box!  I just plugged the cable in, and figured I could at least test the monochrome part of it, since I know that is basically at the same scan rate as VGA, but to my surprise, I saw color in ST Medium mode, rather than monochrome ST High mode. I tested all three resolutions and they all work!"

7.  Atari ST Midi users, looking for Mono chrome replacement Monitor for your Atari SM124 or Atari SM147 dying Monitor?  Most of the current Modern Multi Sync tube and LCD / LED  Monitors on the Market today will work in ST Mono chrome mode only.  Just double check your New Multi Sync Monitor Owners Manual (can also be found on the Internet with a simple search) sync range (typical modern Multi Sync monitor range: Horizontal Frequency 20 - 36 kHz, Typical Vertical range: 50 - 90 Hz)  The ST Mono chrome Display requirements:  35.7 kHz Horizontal and 71.2 Hz Vertical Frequency's.

Atari Tech Tip:   When you 1st connect up your new Best Multi Sync ST adapter cable to your Tube / LCD / LED or Plasma larger display / TV to get an Atari larger Monochrome display, it maybe too dark, too light, or have vertical light and dark lines or strips on it depending on what was factory presets were for Hi Res settings on your Monitor / TV.  You can usually correct these ST Hi Res minor display problems by using your display auto correct / adjust / update function.  But in a few cases you will get very close to the normal ST Mono chrome display you are use to,  you may still have to go into your Monitor / Display set up menu settings and make fine adjustments to your Brightness, Contrast, Clock and Clock phase settings to get a perfect ST Mono chrome display and then save those new display / monitor settings.     

Gilbert H. of Belgium  "Just got hands on the adapter cable,"  Best ST Multi Sync / LCD monitor adapter cable  "it works great with a compatible monitor !"

8.  Because most Multi Sync Monitors on the market do not have Audio in and out features, the Best ST Multi Sync monitor adapter cable, includes one RCA male audio out cable, so you can connect this ST audio out cable to an amplified Speaker to hear the normal ST Key clicks and other normal ST program sounds.

9.  Compared to the stock Atari made ST SC1224 Color, SM124 Mono Chrome or SM144 Mono Chrome monitors with their very tiny 12 to 14 inch hard to see Diagonal screen size, the Best ST Multi sync adapter cable will allow you to go to much larger 19 to 40+ inch screen displays.

Mark W. of the UK    "Thanks very much for the cable, it works a charm."  Best ST Multi Sync Adapter cable.  Follow up question:   Do you have a similar cable, but with audio break out?

Answer:  Already built into the Best ST Multi Sync adapter cable.

Follow up Comment:  "It was great before I realized it had built in audio out. Now I'm over the moon."

10.  If you use the Ambery Scaler box below with the Best ST Multi Sync adapter cable, the Ambery Scaler box will Sync up the Atari ST Low and Medium Custom Color Video non standard Display signals, so you can use most current larger LCD, LED and Plasma screens.  The Ambery Scaler box will not pass thru the 71.2 Hz Vertical Frequency's required for ST Mono Chrome display.  In most cases to get the ST Mono Chrome display on the same LCD display you are using, you will have to connect the Best ST Multi Sync Adapter cable directly (by passing the Ambery Scaler box) to your VGA tube, LCD / LED display.  If you do want to switch back and forth between ST Color and Mono Chrome Displays on the same LCD display with the Ambery Scaler box, you can get a VGA Switch box with extra VGA cables, to switch in and out the Ambery Scaler box to your Tube, LCD / LED display.  Remember the push button switch on the Best Multi Sync adapter cable must be in the top position for a Mono Chrome display and bottom position for ST Color Display.

Here is the current list of Multi Sync Monitors that will work with the Best Electronics CB102582-6 Custom Made Multi Sync Monitor adapter cable.  If by chance you Do Not find a Multi Sync Monitor on the List below you can use or find locally, check the product information below on the Required Multi Sync Monitor Electrical Specifications.  If you find another brand or Model that will work on Atari ST computers please let us know and we will add it to the list.

Atari Tech Tip:  If you do get the Ambery Scaler box and want to use it with the Best Multi ST Adapter cable (HD15 Female connector out) with it, you will need at least one HD-15 Male to Male Gender changer to connect up to the Ambery VGA female input connector.  You may need a second HD-15 Male to Male gender changer if your output display has a female HD-15 input connector or cable end.  We do have HD-15 to HD-15 Male to Male gender changers in stock.
