AVR-5700, DVD-9000 and MKs bring back a lot of memories. 5700 was my first surround sound amp. DVD-5000 (later 9000 was based on it) was my dream DVD player but I could only afford DVD-3000. MK 750 with THX Select, I wanted these for so long then Mr. Kreisel sold the company to the Danish:)

I now have a Lumagen Radiance Pro 4449 in my setup. The new pro models dropped analog inputs so I am keeping my Radiance 2144 for analog inputs. The Pro has 8 input that are 4k60 capable, 7 output zones that are 4k60 capable and has 8x7 matrix. Only zone 1 is processed the others are pass through. Zone 1 can process up to 4k60 video with full 12+bit 4913 point calibration pipeline. Picture in picture and picture outside picture features are coming soon. I will be Beta testing this unit, I will be testing its 4K to 1080p downscaling performance as well.

I have confirmation that Radiance 2144 and 2124 will have its 3D comb filter registers available to users later on. No date on this yet but it is in the list.

My home theater isn't impressive and will not be a competitive. I really like my gear and it satisfies me in every way. The list consists of:

TV:


Panasonic TH-50PZ800

Blu-ray:

Playstation 3
Pioneer BCS-717 (home theater)
Oppo BDP-103D - modified for all regions, both dvd and blu-ray

VCR:

Panasonic AG1980

Laserdisc:

Pioneer CLD-97 (AC3-output, the glory of my home theater)
Pioneer CLD-D925 (backup, primary player used for discs with AC3)
Pioneer CLD-1750 (main player - and even for checking discs for rot)
Pioneer CLD-959 (backup, in circulation from time to time)
Pioneer DVL-909 (If I'm lazy to switch sides manually)

Might post a picture of it someday, when I feel brave enough to show it for the outside world. Have some dusting to do first. :lol:

That sounds like a great setup. With a laserdisc player collection like that I don't think you have to worry about not being "competitive." I use a CLD-97 w/ AC3 mod as my main player so I'm a big fan. If you have time, post some pics of your setup.

"Homebuild component converter"? Now that sounds interesting.

Yesterday I was given a Pioneer Elite VSX-49TXi, which I was told had one weak channel. Going to try to fix it up!

Yea, the homebuild component converter is interesting. Can you also talk a little about the modifications on the other units?

Sure!

Sony STR-DA2400ES - 7.1 Receiver:

replacement of the front AV connectors to the back

Image

And upgraded come capasitors and opamps.



Homebuild - Component Converter:

This is a RGB (Scart) to Component converter.
My old DVD changers only have composite and S-Video outputs... But do feature Scart RGB, wich is way better than the other outputs.

I used an old mediaplayer that I found in a secondhand shop.

Harman Kardon ADP-303 - AC3 converter:

I modified this unit so it can output dolby digital on the optical output (normally it's only analog out) And another modificatiion is for automatic swiching.
The Laserdisc player is connected via optical out and AC3 out to the ADP-303....
When the ADP-303 detects AC3 signal, it jumps automaticly to the AC3 input, when no AC3 signal is detected, it will go to the optical input so digital sound or DTS is passed thru it ;)

Image

Sony DVP-CX850D - 200 DVD Changer:

A simple modification, I want to use two of them on just one input...
The changer does swiching of the incoming Scart signals itself, but no digital audio. I placed an extra relay on the swichting circuit foe the digital audio and added a coax digital input for the signals of the second changer.



Sony BDP-S350 - BluRay Player:

Very simple, changed the white LED to blu and gave it a capasitor upgrade.



Pioneer CLD-D925 - Laserdisc Player:

This one was already modified when I bought it.
It has a very clean coax digital output. No processing is present on this output.
Modification was done by: "van Medevoort" http://www.vanmedevoortaudio.nl
Image


Toshiba HD-A30 - HD-DVD Player:

This was a 110V unit. I replaced the powersupply for a 230V version and gave the player a capasitor upgrade.



Philips VR-1000 - SVHS VCR:

This VCR only had Scart....
In the service manual I found that the TBC in this VCR was able to create a component video output. So I placed a couple of transistors, resistors and capasitors and now it has 3 BNC connectors on the back for component video output ;)
