Hello Xianglong,

Pleasure to make your acquaintance. I am MarkMan (Mark), senior moderator here on SRK and owner of SDTEKKEN.COM. I also work for Mad Catz.

I mentioned in the other Qanba thread that I may be in Hong Kong and Baoan/Shenzhen early next year for work. I’d love to see some more of your stuff! Keep up the good work, all the stuff seems to be positive thus far!

If you have any questions about SRK or would like to chat about arcade sticks/marketing, feel free to PM or email me.



If you ever end up in Beijing for work, by all means look me up.

Thanks Mark.


**If you posted some lag test results with a CRT or known lag free HDTV/Monitor, then we could see if your PCB is suitable for the demanding fighting game player.
The software to make those tests is even available here at SRK.

You should also post some reviews made by some of the better known forum members, if they have bought one.

It seems like your wood base is of acceptable quality.
Beside the PCB being lag free, I have the following questions.

1. Does the v2 Qanba have a wireless version?
2. Does the v2 Qanba 360 version have have the headphone port, like the other Qanba did?
3. Is the clear plastic top plexiglass, or some other plastic?
4. What exact Sanwa stick are you using in the v2 Qanba?
5. Can we get some high resolution pictures of the insides, to see how easy it is to replace parts/mod?

If you can answer these questions, people will have more confidence in your product.

Personally, without a product review, by a fairly well known forum member, I would not even consider purchasing any of your products. (Nothing personal)

Without these details, I believe few people, (outside China) will be willing to spend $130 US on your unknown brand product, especially when a TE from madcatz can be had for a few bucks more.

If you sold it at $75 you could likely get some more people to buy it just to try it out, as this is just about as cheap as the SE stick from madcatz.


I will be reviewing one for the good people of this community very soon.

Actually ShinJN and I will both take a stab at it. :wink:


Just FYI, $75 is an impossible price point for them really. You can’t even get them quite that cheap in China. After parts and shipping costs, they’d probably be losing money. It’s not fair to compare this to a SE; SEs don’t use arcade parts.


Q?1. Does the v2 Qanba have a wireless version??

A?the V3 QanBa will have PS3/PC 2in1 wireless version. V3 QanBa will listing next week

Q?2. Does the v2 Qanba 360 version have have the headphone port, like the other Qanba did?
A?the V2 QanBa 360 version have no the headphone port now .

Q?3. Is the clear plastic top plexiglass, or some other plastic?
**A?We have clear plastic top plexiglass ?but the model 360HSB and 360HSW is pure color acrylic panel . **

Q?4. What exact Sanwa stick are you using in the v2 Qanba?
**A?JLF-TP-8YT **

Q?5. Can we get some high resolution pictures of the insides, to see how easy it is to replace parts/mod?
**A?Yes?we will Publish some high resolution pictures of the insides **


hey i heard qanba was working on a PCB that can be used for BOTH the ps3/360…is this true? cuz if so…can i get in line? lol


Does anyone have a picture of the insides of this stick?


Will these ever be available in america? Or a estimated price for americans?


the new ones are pretty lovely … i really like them :slight_smile:


I really like the look of the new stick, especially since the buttons are now on the side of the stick. My only questions are a.)Will there be a 360 version? and b.)could it come in wired?


Unfortunately, the 360 version is still under development!

Here are some highlights about the PS3 Wireless stick.

  1. Rechargeable!! Just plug in the USB cable
  2. Wired with USB cable or Wireless with USB dongle.
  3. On/Off switch
  4. PS, Start, Select, Combo, Mode buttons on the sides.
  5. All Sanwa components
