Black Friday Weekend Orders & Lead Times

Valued Rec Room Masters Customer,

We wanted to extend our thanks to all of you for making this Black Friday weekend a record weekend for Rec Room Masters! Due to the increased demand for our products, our prepared holiday inventory unexpectedly oversold in the first few hours and because of this we may be 2-4 days behind schedule in expediting some orders. Rest assured, we are producing cabinets around the clock and expect to have all holiday weekend orders processed and shipped this week. It is our strict policy not to rush inventory production as quality and customer satisfaction is our primary focus, however, we have recently increased our manufacturing staff in our Lawrenceville, Georgia facility to accommodate the current demand. We very much appreciate your patience and understanding and we are very confident you are going to enjoy your cabinet.

Thank you for your support!

Thank You,
The Rec Room Masters Team

Amazon Sales Update

Rec Room Masters Customers,

We wanted to inform our valued customers and supporters that we have decided to no longer sell our products via Amazon.com. We are committed to providing quality products and service to our customers and we have found that, for our company, selling via Amazon does not provide the best opportunity for doing this.

Rec Room Masters is committed to providing you with products at a reasonable price point and pride ourselves on making affordable gaming cabinets widely available to everyone. Amazon unfortunately takes extremely high commissions on each product we sell via their website, thus driving up our costs. By selling only on our website, www.recroommasters.com and on Ebay.com, we will be able to pass that savings onto our customers.

Secondly, Amazon does not offer us the opportunity to provide the quality of customer service that we pride ourselves upon. It is extremely difficult to get in contact with customers as we are forced to go through Amazon’s system, and many times customers don’t provide accurate contact information in their Amazon accounts. We try our very best to provide a quality experience to our customers, but occasionally shipping problems or transit damage can occur. Unfortunately when a customer has purchased the product via Amazon, contacting them to help with whatever issue may have occurred is extremely tedious and sometimes impossible.

Our products are still and will always be available through our website, www.recroommasters.com and Ebay.com and we will continue to provide the same great quality products and customer service as always. We thank you for your support.

The Rec Room Masters Team


Recent Minor Manufacturing Flaws Identified, and Now Corrected!

It has been brought to our attention that some minor manufacturing flaws occured in our most recent production run that have now been corrected. All issues with the “cabinet door not flush” and “adjustable shelf alignment” have now been rectified and all cabinets shipping as of 9/17 have passed our new quality inspection process. Since this cabinet is designed and manufactured here in the USA, we were quickly able to correct these minor issues, therefore, eliminating any further inconvenience. If you have received a cabinet in the last few weeks and have experienced any concerns, please immediately contact Customer Service for replacement parts. As always we welcome your comments and suggestions as we take extreme pride in the quality of our product. Thank you for your continued support!

Innovation Has to Start Somewhere

Over two years ago whenI purchased my cabinet from Rec Room Masters I had no idea I was very the first order (number 001) and now am happy to have have kept in touch with them through the years as I watched their popularity continuously grow. Anyone from the age of 15 to 55 has at one time in their life, basked in the awe of the almighty upright “Arcade Machine”. For the last three decades or so, a majority of the now 30+ crowd subcategorized from the demographic above has often fantasized in fulfilling a childhood dream by having access to one of those game-powering monsters in their own home. I can only speculate on the reasons for the unaffordable price tag commonly found attached to these game-god giants and until now, never thought twice as to why… However, with the Xtension Arcade Cabinet distributed by Rec Room Masters LLC, you just may have to see for yourself what all of the hype is about.

After experiencing their arcade offering, the bar has definitely been raised. Lets just start with two basic yet necessary points, price and quality. Rec Room Masters LLC sells their upright arcade cabinet for a stunningly low $399 not to mention an innovative modular design and a very high quality domestically manufactured product produced in Atlanta, Georgia. Most remotely comparable cabinets would run between $800 – $4,000 and the cost of shipping alone is the total cost of their cabinet. Not to mention these days any PC gaming set up is beyond elementary as my 5 year-old can download and install MAME and much more in the blink of an eye, running circles around his old man.

A definite level of attention needs to be focused on the fact that when I landed on the decision to purchase a cabinet in general, I expected to see an 18 wheel trucker obnoxiously taking out my neighbors mail box as he steams his way down my suburban cul-de-sac dragging my sanity along with what would have been my recently emptied bank account. To my surprise, the inexpensive knocked down unit shipped UPS ground and didn’t even come close to costing me the small fortune in shipping fees I expected. The unit arrived quickly and in 3 easy to handle boxes and went together “Ikea style” in just about an hour.

I just simply added a 22″ flat screen I already had, a 3 year old PC and the X-Arcade Tankstick I purchased from X-gaming. Then, downloaded MAME, a handful of vintage emulators, hunted down thousands of web scattered ROM’s and installed the arcade front end giant Maximus Arcade. That was it… The bottom line, if you are an arcade enthusiast and hobby around with the restoration or collection of 80’s or 90’s classic cabs, then this may not be for you. However, for everyone else wanting to satisfy an unfulfilled wish list Santa once failed to deliver or merely impress your drinking buddies during your Friday evenings, you no longer need a rock star crib to be a rock star! Or just act like one every now and then…
