Selectable ABC or ACB stereo

So how does it work?

The ZX-AY has similar audio hardware as present inside any ZX Spectrum 128K model.
Which includes the AY-3-8912 sound chip and BEEPer sound circuitry, but adds all of the above benefits.

There is no need to modify your ZX Spectrum internally!
Plug in the interface (with the system powered off ), and enjoy crisp stereo 3 channel sound with many, may games!

Comes with  printed manual – read the ZX-AY manual here!


The ZX-AY is fully compatible with all Sinclair ZX Spectrum models:
ZX Spectrum 16K, 48K, 48K+, 128K, +2, +2A, +2B, +3 and some clones.

The ZX-AY does not output the tape loading sound when loading games.
The ZX-AY stereo output socket does not support a mono plug.

Works great with any other add-on, such as the DivMMC EnJOY!, DivMMC EnJOY! *mini*, ZX-HD and many more!

Works with ZX Spectrum 16K/48K!

Upgrade your ZX Spectrum 16K/48K with the ZX-AY, and enjoy games and demos that have 3 channel AY-3-8912 sound support and run on a ZX Spectrum 16K/48K (there are many!).

  1. Works great with my ZX-HD HDMI interface, and DIVMC Enjoy Pro One and also Pro Mini. Great to have clear, crisp sound coming from my Zx Spectrum 48K. Finishes off my Spectrum for the modern age! Thanks! 😀

  2. Would rather have posted a nice review about the ZX-AY as before with the 9V 2A adapter. Haven’t received anything from you for 2 weeks and you don’t even respond to all my messages.

    • Arrived neatly and packaged very well. Unfortunately I haven’t tried the ZX-AY yet. Don’t know if it is possible to use with the ZX-HD and DivMMC Pro One.
