DMDLux is a replacement DMD controller board for any Bally Williams WPC pinball machines. It has been carefully designed to be the most reliable and coldest DMD controller board ever created.
Every PinSound product is designed to offer a high and long-lasting quality. DMDLux has been designed and manufactured to guarantee a long lasting product. DMDLux is covered by a 2-years warranty and will be replaced if anything happens due to materials or manufacturing defects.
DMDLux controller board allows you to switch the brightness of your DMD display on the fly.
No need to swap or solder a resistance, the brightness control button can be set at any time:
- BOOST → 120 % brightness – for a brighter (or worn-out) DMD display
- NORMAL → 100 % brightness – normal DMD brightness
- SAVING → 80 % brightness – for lower energy consumption and longer DMD life
The high voltage power supply section usually generates a lot of heat and stress on DMD controller boards. After a while, it can result in early failures or burnt components. DMDLux has been designed with a very high efficiency power supply to offer a longer life expectancy.
It has been a technical challenge to develop a super efficient power supply design for the DMDLux, thus a very low thermal dissipation. Electronic components reliability and temperature are greatly related: keeping components cool (less than 100°C / 212°F), extends the life expectancy of the whole product.
PinSound LAB: we ran a comparative tests on the different existing DMD controller boards, following a strict protocol.

Made by the PinSound Brothers
A few years back, Timothée and Nicolas aka « The PinSound Brothers » embarked on the challenge of designing a new sound board that could bring high quality sound to yesterday’s pinball machines. The PinSound project was born and after a full round of designing, engineering and problems solving, they were able to organize the manufacturing process of the PinSound boards.
To beat an ambitious challenge, you always have to train and develop high skills. After 6 years, the two brothers have reached the point where all these skills are merging to become a unique savoir-faire !
