Define what you mean by 'best' ?


For the 'best' experience you'll want a 4:3 CRT TV something like a Sony Trinitron or a Bang and Olufsen but that obviously isn't for everyone. An arcade stick and buttons with micro switches will give the 'best' experience and feel like an old arcade cabinet, again this is not for everyone.

The best thing I can suggest is a genuine Raspberry Pi power supply as a minimum, you don't necessarily need a case either, I just have mine bare sat behind the TV.

I have a few, one of them is in a bar top arcade cabinet with a 19” 4:3 display and a 2 player arcade stick setup upgraded with Cherry micro switches, genuine PSU, Samsung Evo 128GB card running a version of RetroPie with the Motion Blue version of attract mode.

Regarding wireless controllers, you can use many types and may already have one, PS4 Xbox etc. If not the 8BitDo controllers seem quite good
