Information

The Domy H.V. has an exotic and unique look.
Its upper half consists of a curved smoked acrylic panel mounted on a glass fiber structure reminding the appearance of a cockpit.
This gives it a look that even today looks futuristic.
The fact that the upper half of the cabinet is made of glass fiber could explain its rarity as it is very easily damaged.
It has a robust rotation mechanism which makes it an excellent choice for a compact and versatile cabinet.

Monitor

The Domy H.V. is equipped with a Nanao MS8-26 monitor as found in other cabinets such as Sega Aero City or Sega_Swing.
The chassis is a Nanao MS8-26AK, the tube is a 26" Mistubishi A63JHF81X
Following the Domy H.V.'s compact design, the tube is mounted upside down (anode at the bottom) to an angle of aproximately 45°.

Rotation Mechanism

The Domy H.V. has a rotation mechanism made of metal. However, it only rotates clockwise which is not considered standard.
One will then have to use the "Reverse" yoke connector on the monitor chassis or install a yoke switch to enjoy vertical games that don't provide a "flip screen" option.

Sound

The Domy H.V. has two speakers wired in parallel to the JAMMA connector (pins L&10).
The original speakers are believed to be rated 8ohms (confirmation needed).

Maintenance Panel

The Domy H.V. has 3 maintenance buttons (Test, Service, Degauss) as well as two volume control pots (left and right respectively).
The degauss switch is linked directly to the monitor chassis.
The buttons are Miyama DS-133
The L-Pads attenuators model is Cosmos Tokyo "CAT-40H" rated 8ohms50db.
(This model seems to have been discontinued, confirmation needed)

Connectors

The Domy H.V. use Tamiya L6.2 4pins connectors to connect the sound between the L-Pads and the [JAMMA] connector (pins L&10). It is believed that this connector is there to offer support for external stereo sound input. One can easily disconnect the connector going to the JAMMA and replace it by an additional cable going to the PCB Stereo output.
