pc-x801 covers the NEC PC-8801 and PC-9801 range of desktop computers and the most common sound generators for both computer series.

YM2203 (OPN): 3 FM channels, 3 PSG channels. Mono sound output.

YM2608 (OPNA): 6 FM channels, 3 PSG channels, 6 preset rhythm ADPCM samples, 1 ADPCM sample channel. Stereo sound output.

The -86 soundcard also used the YM-2608B, but as it lacked onboard RAM it did not offer the ADPCM channel, it did have a PCM chip which was 16bit and stereo but this was powered by the computer.
