you’re interested in a game cabinet, THIS is the
review you want to read.
I was like a lot of

I had a quarter in my pocket, I’d bike to the
local arcade and you’d here the “click” of my
quarter on the glass for “next game.”
30’s, I never really connected with the consoles
but I did like computer games but who has the time
for a 20-30 hour session these days.
I found classic arcade emulators. All the arcade
greats online. I downloaded them and tried to play
them on my PC but it wasn’t the same. Who likes playing classic
arcade games on a computer
I purchased a true USB gaming standalone control
panel with joysticks, spinner, trackball, and all
the buttons you’ll need. Still, it’s doesn’t

Now, I just built a
contemporary game room in the South Beach Theme
with a full bar, plasma TV, pool table (with wood
that matches the bar), tech lighting and a
complete stainless/granite theme. I tried to get my computer to play
classic arcade games through the plasma HD
television but the RESOLUTION NEVER WAS RIGHT and
wouldn’t be with a widescreen SO DON'T BOTHER TO
TRY AND WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME...THEY ARE NOT
ARCADE ACCURATE AT ALL.
challenge was this:
1. Purchase a gaming
cabinet that plays all the games I grew up
2. Don’t make it look like some cheaply
built arcade cabinet with a big hokey cartoon
graphic on the side or with some childish colors
I did an exhaustive search around
and found that any of these packaged units with
about 20 or 30 games you see at at the retail
stores look cool, but they only play a FEW games,
they are proprietary and the quality of
construction isn’t there. Plus they cost about
$3,000 and you need pay around $500/each for a new
game bundle for just a FEW more games.
may be fun for a few weekends but ultimately, it
will just collect dust. Controls aren’t accurate
and cheap, the screen isn’t at the right angle,
and they only have a few games, compared to the
open system you can buy from
Well, DreamAuthentics DID IT!
I called the 800 number and told
them what I was looking for and we agreed that
this was going to be as much of a showpiece, as a
gaming cabinet, and it needed to last for years.
Who puts some cheap cabinet next to plasma with a
granite bar… no one ! We decided to go with the
Excalibur cabinet with all optical stainless steel
joysticks and solid black buttons to keep with the
contemporary feel of the room.

Fort Myers, FL
Nowadays it's extremely hard to find an arcade hall in Switzerland.
15 or 20 years ago there were a lot of arcades but unfortunately since the arriving of Sony's Playstation 1 they slowly became extinct. I always liked to play the old arcade games like Pac Man or Asteroids because they were simple and straightforward. And with the development of Mame and PC based classic game collections it was suddenly possible to play them at home on an personal computer. But the feeling and glory of an real arcade machine was still missing.
So i decided to build my own arcade cabinet. After several months reading through different forums i came to the conclusion it's not that easy to build a cabinet from scratch... and you need some time to build it... i mean a lot of time... but as usually time is money... and i don't have much time left in my life because i have a company to look at... so i decided to buy a real good one.
But now the troubles starts... almost all cabinet builders only sell they're arcade machines with a standard 8-way 6 buttons configuration and with a cheap marquee and (if you're lucky) a small side art and somehow poor building quality (because the cheaper the price the more you can sell!!!). But i dreamt of an high quality machine with different types of joysticks, spinners and buttons and individual sideart and marquee... to name it with one sentence "an unbelievable dream machine to play them all... like years ago in the good old days" and if you would like to have a dream machine than there is only one company on the world where satisfaction is guaranteed.... and that's DreamAuthentics.
I wanted a killer machine and they built me one ( maybe they can add a photo of my cabinet). When i told them my wishes there were no words like... sorry we can't do this or that.... there was only one statement from Rick and this was "yes we can". Several times i changed my mind referring the configuration of the control panel but never... really never somebody at DA complained about my changes.... and we have to be honest... you have to walk through the desert to find a company like Dreamauthentics... because that's real first class customer service.
At the end when the cabinet was finished and ready to ship i was concerned how will DA managing it to get this marvellous and heavy built cabinet to Switzerland? But when a huge massive wooden box arrived at my home my concerns flew away. There were no scratches or broken joysticks... it was packaged by real pros.
So my advise for all those game freaks who want real high quality don't look around... there is only one company in the whole wide world for your own dream arcade cabinet and that's DreamAuthentics from Ilinois. Thanks to Rick, Renee, Dan and all the others at DA who made my dream came true.
share some of the background of my purchase. I
wanted to surprise my family for Christmas with
something a little different so I decided a life
size arcade would be as different as I could get.
I searched the web and had been to what
seemed like hundreds of sites before I came across
DreamAuthentics. To say I was impressed by your
product after all the research I did would be an
Now I had a BIG problem, I
had taken so long trying to find the right product
that it was now only TWO WEEKS BEFORE CHRISTMAS.
This apparently wasn't even an issue with
DreamAuthentics. Within a week, they had helped me
choose the best product, decide on which shipping
method to use and had the game delivered in plenty
of time to meet my Christmas deadline. Needless to
say, my family was shocked when they woke up to
see the arcade sitting in our living room. It has
been our favorite family activity since
The arcade itself is extremely well
constructed and really easy to use. My six year
old son learned to use it in a matter of minutes.
I can't describe just how cool this product really
is and how much it feels just like you are
back in a video arcade from the 80's.
thing that really impressed me the most about
DreamAuthentics was their level of customer
service and that is really hard to do. I have
worked for the past 15 years for a financial
institution that has built its business to one of
the largest in the world by providing superior
customer service as opposed to advertising and
DreamAuthentics has demonstrated that they can
even surpass my expectations.
so quickly to e-mails that I found myself actually
taking longer to answer their questions then they
took to answer mine.
You would think that
this was all just leading up to the sale but it
went well beyond that. It's been almost 2 months
since I received the arcade and I still receive
the same level of service from them as I did when
I was just getting ready to purchase the product.
Even when it's the most basic of questions because
I'm being lazy, they provide a quick and friendly
The bottom line is that this is
a great company with a great product and bunch of
great people that work for them. This is the best money I have ever
spent and anyone would be foolish to even consider
buying from another company.
Thank you very much
are looking for an arcade game for your home, stop
right here. You've found it. There is nothing
better than a home video arcade cabinet, and no
one makes them better than
My wife and I wanted an
arcade cab for our game room, but any single game
would get boring after time. So we started looking
for a multi-game system. But which one? I'll save
you a lot of research. I'm a computer programmer
and worked in my uncle's arcade as a teenager, so
my standards are pretty high. I wasted a lot of
time researching these machines, mostly due to
staff at game vendors who
understand the product
2-didn't want to take
the time to tell me about it
3-didn't want me
to figure out how lacking their machines
Arcade Legends - You've seen it on the
web and in the trendy sharper image style
catalogs. Check out the angle the screen is
mounted at. Horrible. You have to stuff your head
into the cabinet to play it. Also uses a 5 year
old CPU (1ghz Celeron). Games have to be bought
from them in upgrade packs (typically $500 for 30
games). If your favorite games are not available?
Too bad. The Ultracade - The upmarket version of
the Arcade Legends, has a better selection of
games, slightly faster CPU, but NO MORTAL KOMBAT!
You have to be kidding me. Their release schedule
for games is a complete mystery. If you want more
proof that these are poor machines,
out their owner's forum on their site. Tell me if
these look like happy people.
from the upset people on those forums is where I
found out about multi game home arcade cabinets. I sent a few inquiries
to some of the various cabinet makers. Most looked
shady, some looked like they were building them
out of their garage with aftermarket parts, and I
was not surprised when most of them didn't even
respond. DreamAuthentics responded
within an hour (One vendor actually responded to
my initial inquiry after I had already RECEIVED my
machine from DreamAuthentics.) I pounded him with
questions for three days and got rapid fire
answers. The few questions I had after the machine
arrived were answered just as
We ordered the
UltraQuad, for four player fun. The machine is
solidly built and looks fantastic. DreamAuthentics makes a big deal of
how simple the machines are to use, and this is
very true. But just as important, they are
powerful machines that can be as complex as you
I immediately went to work
with custom menus and set-ups, finding all kinds
of neat tricks I could make the machine
The parts are all standard arcade
parts, easily replaceable if something should
break, but I really don't see that happening.
These things are made to take a daily pounding,
and that's what it gets at my house (and no, we
don't have kids). EVERYONE who comes over, plays.
It is the ultimate entertainment addition to any
home. People who "don't like games" because
they're "not any good at them" love being able to
throw in free quarters and join in the fun. Wives
and girlfriends who hate games leave saying "we've
got to get one of those!".
And the games.
The ability to play whatever games you want. Some
nights we spend more time digging through the
lists of games then actually playing them. Games
That's actually the best
part. When people come over, see the cabinet and
say, "Wow! What game is that?" Answering "What
game do you want it to
BTW - The ultimate
accessory for the UltraQuad. I had to get 4 bar
stools in the same colors as each player's
controls. It looks great!
repeat my mistake in trying to build your own
cabinet. About three years ago I decided to buy an
arcade game for my recreation room.
researching different machines I decided it would
make more sense to have a machine that could play
hundreds of games rather than just one. The more I
researched the easier it "SOUNDED" (key words) to
build my own machine and hey I would be saving
myself a few hundred bucks.
I set out
buying all the necessary components for the
cabinet and the control panel. SIX MONTHS LATER
had a working control panel and a "SHELL" of a
cabinet that LOOKED HORRIBLE.
worked about half of the time, due to my less than
stellar job of connecting the controls and my wife
wouldn’t allow me to keep it in the open because
it looked so bad.
I kept saying that I
would finish the wood work on my cabinet and make
it look nice...well about 2 months ago I realized
that my skills at wood working were so limited
that it would be impossible to salvage the cabinet
and I set out to find a different
Fortunately, that is when I came
across DreamAuthentics. Every site I went to
people were raving about the quality of their
cabinets. I contacted the and explained my
situation. They understood (apparently they hear
stories like mine often) and set out to find the
best solution for me.
I wanted to use my
own computer as it already had the games I played
loaded on it. DreamAuthentics worked out a deal
where I could purchase the Eladius cabinet and
they would install my computer into it and then
ship it to me.
When the cabinet showed up
it looked AWESOME!
The craftsmanship was
top notch and the follow-up service was
When people first see our

MYSELF A LOT OF TIME, MONEY and

months ago I visited a buddy who had just
purchased the craziest thing I had ever seen. he
had this "special" stand up arcade game (Excalibur
cabinet), which I had always had planned on
purchasing on day (like a pac man or galaga). When
I saw how cool this cabinet was it started the
ball in motion... needless to say I told some guys
at work and the next thing you know we have 5
cabinets on order. The next 4 weeks of my life
were the longest ever while waiting for the
cabinets...then they were ready!
greatest thing ever was when we got the 3
Excalibur cabinets and 2 Uultra Quads. I will not
lie, my eyes teared up, but the best was yet to
come... the following 2 days and nights we logged
some serious play time...the unlimited free
credits, the seemingly endless games, and the
completely customizable button configurations does
not even scratch the surface of how great these

With two small boys at home I wanted to get a
game that had a huge number of options they could
play but also wanted to have space in my
entertainment room. The unit I purchased despite
having 4 player capabilities still fits in the
corner of the room neatly. With over 800 employees

has been a great relaxation tool. Usually workout

and ready to go. The game has been fun for the
family, myself, and friends when they are at the
house. Definitely would recommend this unit to
After much deliberation, I purchased an
Excalibur unit about six months ago, hoping that
it would add to our recreational time with family
and friends. I have been blown away by the amount
of fun and excitement the MAME unit has added to
our home. I have two daughters - aged five and six
- who seem to enjoy the retro games more than I
do. We spend a lot of time playing with and
against one another as well as the pleasure of
exploring many games on the menu trying to find a
"new" one to learn all over again.
Being Canadian, I was also leary of the
customs, duty, shipping, and support concerns that
went along with the purchase. There was not a
single problem with the shipping process and the
after sales support I have received from Dream
Authentics has been outstanding. The machine
pretty much runs itself, but like all computers
there is the occassional "hiccup" that needs to be
addressed - I have only had to use Dream
Authentics on-line documentation and telephone /
e-mail support once, and my experience was
It took a long time for me to make the decision
to go ahead with the purchase - let's face it, it
is not a small amount of money. But I can honestly

It all started on Thanksgiving Day
when I was home with the family surfing the net
because I had wanted an Arcade cabinet built
exactly to my specifications and NO COMPANYwas
able to produce EXACTLY what I wanted. I found a
link DreamAuthentics and started researching their
capabilities and backround.
exhaustive search I felt I had learned enough to
at least start discussions and by Thanksgiving
dinner, the sales team and I had already traded
several emails. Over the next week they diligently
responded to every single one of my messages,
working with their
incredible team of builders
and designers, to get the cabinet exactly the way
I needed it.
Their website provided so
much detail that I was able to mock up several
renderings to show what I needed. We even traded
Visio schematics illustrating where I need every
hole drilled for the control panel. Mind you I had
dozens of specific changes needed to the normal
Sting layout so this was no easy task. And all
this I wanted BEFORE
Needless to say,
the unit arrived AHEAD OF SCHEDULE and it was
truly a work of art.
Not only is
everything built with extremely high quality
parts, but everything is built extremely
professionally. I was very impressed with not only
the aesthetics outside, but also inside the
cabinet, where everything was in place as it
should be and very neatly. It was built so well I
was able to easily add my own customizations,
artwork, rewiring as I needed, adding and removing
additional devices, and using my own CPU.
I actually would recommend
DreamAuthentic’s high end CPU to those of you not
wanting to spend the time investing HUNDREDS OF
HOURS programming front ends and various software,
but I am a true enthusiast and wanted full
After some time tweaking my
software and controls, I am now at a point where I
can run my games the exact way I want. There are a
lot of games you can buy from Atari, Capcom, Data
East, Midway, Williams, and the list goes on and I
recommend all of them.
One of the reasons
I was drawn to Dream Authentics over most other
cabinet shops was their integrity and upstanding

RIGOROUS ANALYSIS of the competition and could not
find a higher quality manufacturer. The excellent

The DreamAuthentics experience.
It started from being a young teen in the 80's.
I spent every penny and moment playing the classic
games. So to say it mildly I would say I was a
video game junkie. Now moving ahead owning my own
home and having a family. I already had a few
arcade machines in my house but was never fully
satisfied. I then heard about Mame and the
possibilities of playing all the games I grew up
with, I was very intrigued.
I bought a book
to build your own Mame machine and thought I could
do it on my own. I started reading the book on how
to build the machine and the parts needed and was
I feeling overwhelmed.
So I started looking
around at the cabinets that were being built out
there and the cost of these machines. I realized I
could get a machine built for about the same
amount of money as building it myself and a lot
Then I came across
DreamAuthentics web site and I kept coming back to
there site. I was getting more and more serious
about this machine each and every week. I
contacted them on a couple of occasions asking
questions. I wasn't ready yet but everyone from
DreamAuthentics was very professional when
answering my questions.
Then the day came I
spoke to my wife and agreed we wanted to sell my
old games and buy the DreamAuthentics Excalibur
machine. Well to say I was excited about the
purchase was an understatement. I had a million
questions as their personnel can agree. Working
out the details of what to put in the cabinet and
configuration. DreamAuthentics was probably one of
the most professional and considerate companies
I've seen and worked with.
They take pride
in the product they sell and it shows in there

and would recommend them to anyone in a
So back to the machine as it was
confirmed being shipped I was excited to get the
unit in my basement and begin reliving my youth.
Then it arrived in very good shape I was a little
worried about it arriving ok.
All I can say
is WOW!!!! what a sharp looking machine and the
pictures you see on the site can't do it any
justice, the machine looks amazing. Beautiful

from original setup). I think I was speeding home
that night just to see the unit.
for the 12 licensed games to just get me started.
I was giggling with joy when I started the machine
and I'm smiling just writing about right now. I
started a couple of the games and it was amazing
and this was just the tip of the iceberg. Couple
of days later I loaded more games and there were
all the games that I played as a youth and young
What an amazing feeling to see all
the games that I loved playing, I spent hours just
scrolling through the games and quickly trying a
few. I think my machine is alive and it's calling
to me to play. To top this off I just wanting to
say what an absolutely beautiful machine from
DreamAuthentics. I will be using this machine for
years to come and everyone in the family will be
enjoying all the games we can play.
again for all your support and all my endless
emails. DreamAuthentics is one of
the best companies I have ever dealt with and what
a wonderful product they build, I would recommend
them is a heartbeat.
My wife and I were sitting in our
hearth room one night looking into the living
room. The living room is a beautiful room,
fireplace, wood and marble floors, 25 foot
ceilings, and one wall of nothing but glass. It is
probably one of the nicest rooms in the house and
we had never sat in it since we moved in.
Like allot of people we decorated it to be
the fancy room in the house but we are not fancy
people so it never got used. We then decided to
change the room to something that would be useful
to the family. After a few weeks of discussion we
decided to make it a game room for our children.
That was the beginning of the search that brought
me to Dream Authentics.
After dong a LOT
of research I decided to talk to the
DreamAuthentics people. The staff was always
helpful, never pushy, and very much straight
forward. It was a big decision making such a
purchase over the internet without ever seeing the
cabinet in person but we went forward.

whistles and then waited. After a few weeks it
arrived at our door and now it has become a focal
point for our household. Our children love the
games and I cannot tell you how many times I have

my wife playing her favorit classic
The service after the sale has been
excellent also. We lost power to the house during
an ice storm and when the power came back on the
game would not boot up. I called DreamAuthentics
and he asked me to sent him the CPU. I wasn't real
comfortable with this but he had not let me down
yet. I think I sent him the unit on a Wed. or
Thursday. I expected to see it back in 4 to 6
weeks. You can imagine how surprised I was when it
came back to me repaired on the following Wed.

Legends cabinet it would cost - well lets see $300
for an average pack at Arcade Legends and some
coming close to $600 and you only get about 20
games per pack - you are looking at about spending
THOUSANDS of dollars ON TOP OF the game cabinet
and they still did not have all the games I
So if you are looking for a cabinet
that has all the old and new games, plus a light
gun for the shooting games, trackball, spinner and
infinite customization, go with the

I went with DreamAuthentics because,
although I enjoy DIY projects, I wanted a system
that would work seamlessly and its proprietary
menu system makes starting the machines and games
easy for the whole family.
I purchased a
trade show model (Excalibur that had been used at
a trade show for a weekend) that DreamAuthentics
advertised on EBAY - was about $500 less than
their normal price. The Digital arcade monitor is

Being an engineer I am more than capable of
building a game cabinet and configuring it.
However, I would highly recommend
DreamAuthentics to anyone considering this
endeavor. My DreamAuthentics Excalibur cabinet was
built using the highest quality parts available
and constructed in a high quality manner.
In addition, the cabinets that they offer
are more than reasonably priced when compared to
the inferior products their competitors offer or

were numerous questions that I asked customer

was apparent that DreamAuthentics is a company
that takes gaming

I have owned a DreamAuthentics
machine for almost 4 months now and it is by far the best decision I
have made relative to
entertainment. The machine is well
built and is exactly how I imagined it to be. My
whole family plays everyday- my wife and my 3 year
old son (trackball games) ! All my friends want to
do is come over and play.
Their support team is the best. they helped me
through the entire process of design and selection
of which game machine to buy. A few days ago, my
machine crashed probably from playing too much and
even though it
happened on a Saturday, the support staff
responded within a few hours!
The tech who
called me back (I found out later) was on vacation
taking my support call! He immediately provided a
plan to get the machine fixed.
short, I was playing my favorite games within a
few hours. You simply cannot get better customer

About a week ago,
I received your Dream Authentics Excalibur
cabinet. Of all the cabinets I own, it is BY FAR
my favorite. The quality of the video, the sound,
etc. is unbelievable. Today, even my wife referred
to the Excalibur cabinet as "the granddaddy of all
video games." She's right, it is. Thank you for
such a great product!
Thank you also for
the great customer service. As you know, I
e-mailed you about 10 times asking you petty
questions that I could have figured out on my own
(if I were patient enough). You always responded
quickly and pleasantly, and this was AFTER the

have recommended your company to no less than 4
people. Thanks again!!!
