Thank you very much, Admin and alan_wonghk!
The picture quality is absolutely amazing! And the sound track is so relaxing!
I know it is hard to get hold of such system but it is in my dream list for ever.

yeah that's beautiful, even on my laptop screen.

I truly believe humanity and human friendly technology peaked in Japan circa 1990.

JPY 85,000 for a junk/tray does not open and no disc coming along...

I think the previous one sold for a few JPY 1,000's but if you don't have the discs, it's a very expensive brick!

I own two & posted the video above. It's easy to fix the tray issue; the loading belt on these units are all stretched out and it may have aged lubricant. Re-lube the tray and pop on a new belt and you're good to go.

Also, unlike what the seller seems to imply, these are not backwards compatible with standard LDs.

Compatible HDVS discs are hard enough to get, but the real problem, like all Sony LaserDisc equipment, is reliability. Many of these have many, many hours from being run in continuous loops for shows, presentations, and R&D. Both of mine had problems. One has a burnt out laser and the other has a bad board. Service manuals are discontinued/unavailable from Sony. I was able to get one of mine working by mixing & matching parts.

HDVS is an investment.

I added additional information.

Let me know if there is anything else you could use.

Briefly owned, and flipped on Ebay, one of these players, with a disc in in back in August of 2005. Have e-mailed the pictures from my archive to Julien, sadly I didn't take pictures of the disc, but I do have the details of what the disc was thanks to my meticulous attention to providing detailed item descriptions. Relevant excerpt from my circa August 2005 Ebay listing description.:

Quote:
The disc in the unit is labeled: Sony HDVS HDP-2347 [NOT FOR SALE]
MIDLAND PRODUCTIONS SEAWORLD OF FLORIDA "WILD ARTIC", Made in Japan
. Disc has alot of scratches
on it, which for the most part appear to have been caused by some dust/debris that was caught on
the felt pads of the tray.
