I've decided one of these is going to be my next LD player as I don't trust Pioneer anymore (nothing but issues with every Pioneer I've owned). With Sonys I've only ever had door/tray problems, not laser/read/audio problems which I've had with 5 out of 5 Pioneers I've owned.

Does anyone own one of these and could give some idea of price/best places to look? Working ones seem to be gold dust on yahoo Japan auctions.

Thanks

Notwithstanding your poor run of luck with Pioneers, I think there's a reason for that.

Hi, there:

Any story behind the scene? What is the issue with your S9? I am interested.

Thanks.

Perhaps if you can find a working Sony then you've got your hands on a 'good one'. But it does seem a high proportion on Yahoo JP are sold for parts/junk. If it's what you want then some patience might be required......

Yes it looks that way. One of these would be my ultimate machine I think. The MDP-999 looks nice too but is from an era slightly before the one I like most.

In the mean time I think I'll get my S9 professionally serviced. However that's a crapshoot.
