KMTech Playstation controller to Amiga DB9 adaptors

Having just purchased a CD32 with nothing but a PSU, Im gathering the parts needed to get up and running.
I have got an 8 Pin minidin breakout cable , 4 pin S-Vid cable and DB15 to build a cable that has S-Vid and RGB.
Got a DB9 - USB mouse converter in the mail and now looking at controllers.
I stumbled upon KMTech shop on ebay, The PSX converter looks just the ticket as I have one of those somewhere.

Is this good to go with the CD32 or should I keep looking?

It supports only two buttons, so it's mainly for A500/600 users since even A1200 can support seven buttons just like CD32.

Better buy something like KTRL CD32 or Tom interface.

Edit: here is Tom at eBay.

Any Amiga can use the 7 buttons of the CD32 pads if the software supports it.

OP: KTRL pads are great i'd get some of those if you can.

Many thanks,
The TOM interface is now on my shortlist,
I have an XBox 360 controller that is USB, my PSX controller has no USB unfortunatley...

I have tried to Register on Amibay to get hold of the KTRL parts but have been rejected for whatever reason....

Do NOT, I repeat, do NOT get the TOM adapter. I have one and all the USB gamepads I have do not work properly with it. I only use my USB mouse with it as that seems to be the only thing that works 100 percent with it. Also I have tried a USB XBox 360 controller with it and it doesn't work at all.

Electronika4U, who make and sell these things, have a firmware updater for it but it doesn't work anymore because they are no longer maintaining their website and update server anymore. They have been down for over a year now.

I have repeatedly sent them message after message describing the controller problems and asking them either for a fix or to get their update server back online so I can update the firmware on my TOM adapter, but there have simply not answered. Their customer service support is so unbelievably rubbish it defies description.

Just do yourself a favor and do not get one.
