When I encounter someone I can't get along well with, like your conversation about the LJR-I,
I usually block these buyers so that they cannot bid or buy my auctions anymore.
There is an option like that somewhere quite hidden in the ebay account settings.
I think your best option now is to send him a shipping label and get the player back.
This guy smells like trouble.

Sorry to be annoying, but the 50 LD Urusei Yatsura set would have been a steal in 1999 for $1600.
$3200 would have been a realistic price at that point, probably.
And yes, $1600 in this day and age is too much.
So why not buy it for much less from Japan?

D.D. on LaserDisc started in January 1995 with Clear and Present Danger (1994) [LV 32463-2WS]

how do I find out what year my player is?

On the LDDB Homepage, go to "Help" and then select "Mint-o-Matic".
You can enter the serial number of Pioneer products there, and it should
tell you the production year in return.

I leave feedback right after the payment is received - this is also what I do on eBay and other sites.
Like 10 years ago I did the "lets wait for the buyers feedback first game", which resulted in no feedbacks
were given at all in 90% of the sales. So I gave up on that idea again and do my thing.

I have the feeling that what he is trying to say is... the "surround" sound he is getting from LD, does not sound like it does from Blu Ray or his computer.
Is that it thetmaxx ?

There is digital mono too of course.

Example: Dawn of the Dead (1978) [ID6683HB]

As for the speakers... on a surround system in surround mode, audio will only come from the center speaker.
My TV never reduced mono just to one speaker, but some could you'll have to test.

There are even MONO Blu-rays believe it or not.
Tampopo from Criterion Collection being an example.

I use Pioneer Plasma KRP-500A (European Model).
I watch LaserDisc @ 1920x1080.
To get good picture you need to spend some time calibrating.
I used "Video Essentials" LD for this.

I have a kuro plasma since 2008 (last model build, european version), and there are no burn ins.
You'll have to check used screen with caution.
Also check for red tint problem and bad pixels.
Some people also complain about noise made by plasma when switched on.
Check if you are fine with it in a quiet environment.

Yes I think it's a disadvantage that you are maxed out @ 1080p in this day and age.
Maybe 4k screen better in the long term, if new screens have quality to last a long time.
But it seems everything is trying to be as cheap as possible and obsolescent quickly.
Good luck finding a new screen!

These are really OVAs? with animation?

I have one of Shiina's live LDs, Starting Legend Dash.

She is voice acting the main character of the show.
Complete anime, no live action segments.
Really popular manga too, well worth a try.

I've seen all of Yawara as fansubs.
Really great stuff.
Was considering to grab the LD Box sets for a while even, but then never did :(
They are (albeit very slowly) re-releasing the fansubs now with BD video source.

Back in the good old days I used a software called "Cool Edit" the record audio from LD.
I assume it has not been updated in ages and only works on Windows XP, but it was pretty awesome back then.
