Asking this question is like asking "What brand of Betamax you own?" or "what brand of VCS 2600 you won?" You know Pioneer was going to be number 1. I'm surprised 17% of primary LDs are NON-Pioneer. But then again, It's higher than Betamax, where the only 2 other companies making Beta were Sanyo and Sears. Probably 90-95 percent of active Betas are Sony.

I don't know whether there is a bigger percentage of non-Pioneer LDs or a bigger percentage of non-Atari 2600s. The funny thing is Philips (before Pioneer bought the rights to be the adoptive mother of the system, and later Pioneer) licensed all LD players, whereas Colecovision Expansion 1, Coleco Gemini, Columbia House game player, and others were unauthorized knockoffs of the 2600. And they were legal because they used all off-the-shelf, (possibly) public domain parts.

Did anyone make a Selectavision machine other than RCA?

Also, besides the Sears Beta for movie players, and the Sears Telegames (2600) and Super Telegames (INTV), TandyVision (INTV), The GTE/Sylvania (INTV) game system, and the Montgomery Ward (Bally) game system, were there other "Store Brand" media players. I gave a lot of examples of interactive media. Are the any store brands of "linear media" players other than the Sears Beta, in any format? Any "Store Brand" Laser Disc, VHS, Selectavision.

I think Montgomery Ward was big on Laser Disc and might have had a store brand, as their promotional media were printed on Laser Disc.

Just retired my Pioneer 704 after six years of faithful service. Replaced it with a Denon LA-3500. Been trying to get my hands on one of these for the last two years.

Well obviously I have Pioneer CLD-1070 but despite being a entry level player the video quality are pretty good.
Here's a bit of footage I recorded from it.

How do you like it.
You may spend more on a player but it will only get you so much better for the technology that it is.

After I'm done with me scoring a few Synthesizers next month,I'll be back looking for more player but since my 1070 still works
I'm fine with what I have right now I just need more discs.
Other than it being an entry level I quite liked the looks of it not as big or heavy as its side switching brothers 2070 and 3070.

As well as a X9 and S9 I got 4 British Pioneer 925's over the past year and had them completely overhauled so fingers crossed I get plenty more years of viewing.

As I'm European, I have dual standard PAL/NTSC machines.

I own 5 Pioneer LD players : 2 CLD-2950 (one modded with AC3 RF out) and 3 LD-V4300D.

I used to use a CLD-2950 as main player, but I now use an LD-V4300D. The latter do give a much more satisfying feeling of robustness and the picture quality on my Quintrix CRT is better - the sharpness is way better than with the CLD-2950, there is no veil on the image, and color saturation is slightly better (even against the CLD-2950 Y/C output).

I'm currently figuring out a way to give the RGB output of the LD-V4300D a try. If it works, I think it will be pretty straightforward to permanently "hack" the RGB output of the LD-V4300D in order to use it with RGB SCART input TV monitors.
