I recently just purchased a pretty nice looking CLD-59 Player. I'm wondering how good this is (i assume decent enough since it's an Elite model). Such as how does it compare to a CLD-D-704?

Sorry to say there is a lot of great info when doing a google search on these models.
Any working player at this point is the best player you can own.

From what I understand that model is a CLD-D604/5/6 under the hood, which makes it an average LD player. Biggest drawback that I've heard is that the DNR can't be turned off on that model.

I think ebay is a good way to find a good LD player.
After, quality will depend on your wallet...

For exemple :
https://www.ebay.fr/itm/Pioneer-DVL-909-LaserDisc-LD-DVD-Player-mit-FB-BDA-2-Jahre-Garantie/372355368849?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20170831090034%26meid%3D0c1dd7b1ad744b17bd063e035c42b11b%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D372355368353%26itm%3D372355368849&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851

This is a good player PAL / NTSC, 220V and the buyer give a warranty for 2 years !
This is quite rare to find a plyer perfectly working during 2 years ! Then is is not a bad idea.

On ebay you can find a lot of player depending on your needs and your wallet size ^^ !

If you want a top class player you can also import player by ebay :
https://www.ebay.fr/itm/Pioneer-CLD-959 ... Sww9xZKkAk
for exemple.
A very good NTSC player. Be careful, you will need a Voltage transformer 100V > 220 for this one.

Right now 60 usd is too much for me to spend on a player, let alone 600.
thankfully I have enough for now....

Maybe look for the lower end units similar to the CLD-104, such as the 315 maybe? or is that a PAL player.

Sorry I am not so familiar with the EU models.

Sometimes OK but you are taking a risk buying from someone who has no idea what an LD is.

I would only buy from someone who owns discs and can test it, or take the risk.

That’s a really really low end model. I wouldn’t really want one at any price. It’s loud and rattles and makes a lot of video noise. It took until the mid 90s until Pioneer could make a $299.99 player. Before that only the S201 was even close to as cheap and that wasn’t so great either.

I have to say, I’ve never tried to purchase an LD player in France in 2018 on a budget. It can’t be easy. I also have to say I don’t really know why anyone would...it’s not like France is filled with great LDs to watch.

thanks for that rein-o

Signofzeta...I have this Cld-j990g (maybe from 1996, im sure is a clone of the Cld-v2800); it works perfect except some failed attemps with the double side mechanism
Image
I have only watched in person another model owned by a friend an euro expensive DVL-919 and i have to say it showed imho a subtle
greenish cast to the imege, i prefer my 40 euro Cld-j990g anyday

UPDATE: right now i have bought finally a CLD-R6 through a proxy shop ; 114 euro without shipping and import taxes hope not reach the 200 euros maybe yes

It’s a karaoke model.

EDIT: or rather I assumed it was but I don’t see any mic inputs.

If it is for a tower, it makes sense to have the mic inputs in another device, like the amp.

Also it appears to have TOSlink, you don't see those in karaoke models.

Really :problem: I've only had one or two Karaoke models, I can't remember if they did or didn't have that as I sold them back in the day.
But I didn't know that they aren't on Karaoke models.

Well I'm not an expert, maybe Japanese models do have TOSlink because LD+G uses the optical signal for the G part.

But then, if this has built-in LD+G already, why would it need one?
