I have a Quasar LD 9090. 30 years old.
Still plays my LaserDisc just fine.
When I first saw it. It was $999.
30 years ago. That was on the steep side.
Every month we would go in a make a payment.
On something, we were paying off.
And I would stop and look at it.
Then it went to $800.
Than $700 Then $500. Then $300.
We go in one month. And it was $99 bucks.
I said. That is it. I get it. They told me. It has about 2 Hrs of use on it. I said OK.
Still have it. It still works great!
And yes! I still by LaserDisc. When I find what I'm looking for.

I recall selling the LX-200 back then but don’t recall it ever being a $1000 machine. Maybe at the most I think it retailed for no more than about $600. The LX-1000 was easily a $1200 to $1300 machine.

In any case, $100 is a great value for a new player like that. Build quality was top notch for that chassis as it weights a ton; very comparable to the Pioneer CLD-2070.

Yes it is Ton. But a great build. Top-notch.
It still works great.
And glad I got it.
The place I got it was on the high side. On things.
As they would give you their own credit.

my first was a 1990 PIONEER CLD-1080, back around 2005;

Image

second was a 1987 LD-838D, around, -i dunno- 2006-ish?!?

Image

third, and the one i've stuck by ever since, is the 1988 CLD-3030 found online around 2007/2008;

I have a Pioneer CLD5000 That I got from eBay. $50.00+ 35 for shipping.
Had it for years on end. Works great. And my Quasar LD 9090. Floor Model.
$100.00 Bucks at McMans. Out of biss now. Got that one about 45 years ago. For real.
And they both still work great. :thumbup:

"old stuff is built to last" made me chuckle.... :)

I have a Pioneer CLD-V2400 that I found in a dumpster behind an abandoned building 4+ years ago (the building had a library in it at one point), works fine, the tray manually opens, but not via the remote (which was taped to it, thankfully).

Aside from that, I had to remove some exterior rust on the base with some vinegar and a hard nylon brush. Works fine with 0 issues. There's a photo of it in my introduction post even.

HI.
Yup! Old stuff is made to last. This stuff we are talking about shows it.
LaserDisc still rule. Ha! ha!.
On my Quasar. The disc would not turn. So the laser could read it.
I took the top off. And find a small white wheel that was stuck.
Put a little baby oil on it. And all is good to go again.;)

Currently my main LD player is a Pioneer DVL-919. It's better than the previous Sony player I was using.

A friend of mine has had a CLD-D704 for the longest time. Comparing that to my 919. His player has a sharper, more defined image. But I'm happy with mine, especially seeing as the choices are very limited in my neck of the woods.
