Model #: P-450

Performance's P-450 multitap has a two position mode switch and two sets of cables going to the console (1 cable for MODE 1, 2 cables for MODE 2). In mode 1, it works like Sega's MK-1654 multi-tap. I don't have much information about mode 2, but I suspect it is for Electronic Arts games which needed a different type of multi-tap.
