LD-S2 is already AC-3 RF output modded. I bought them from a very nice Vietnamese guy who was the first owner of both. Both %100 functional, both mint.

LD-S2 is offered in exchange for a Theta Voyager.
LD-S1 will be offered for sale soon.

Looks like it's hooked up to a Sony PVM-20L5. I'd give that credit for sure.

My only player at the moment is a Pioneer CLD-D406 manufactured in 1996. It is a no-frills unit except for both side play, a feature I enjoy when I watch movies. Changing discs late into a long movie is fine, but it's convenient to not have to flip the disc 50-55 minutes in since I'm often having my evening meal at that point. Image quality is good and looks every bit as nice as DVD. It may not be high definition, but it's enjoyable nonetheless.


An update: I purchased a Panasonic LX-1000U some time last year after having purchased the D406. It has become my primary player, but unfortunately it has what I assume to be an alignment issue that starts to manifest itself about half way through a disc with progressively severe dropouts as it gets toward the edge. Picture quality is notably better than the D406, however, especially during light colored scenes like outdoor snow or indoor white room shots.

I'm changing my poll vote from Pioneer to Panasonic. :)

Since my last post on this thread, I acquired a Pioneer CLD-D406 which has composite video, baseband audio, digital audio and AC-3 outputs.

Any tray trouble with that unit?

Have you tried changing out the loading belt on your 406?

I did change the belt a couple of times and it was better, but problems remain unfortunately. I'm already using a belt that is one size thicker but the correct diameter. It works a bit better than the official belt spec, but still not reliable.

Had a Denon LA-2300, which is just a clone of the Pioneer CLD-D515, hooked up in the living room for awhile but just swapped it out with a Pioneer CLD-D703. Have a Pioneer CLD-D505, which is the first player I ever bought, hooked up in one bedroom and a Pioneer DVL-700 hooked up in the other bedroom. :)

Only have an LD-S9 at the moment. Went on the fritz then after some advice here I opened it up and made it worse. Then I moved and it seems to have mostly fixed itself? Only has issues with some discs now...I dunno..

I've got both those units too (LD-S1 & LD-S2)

That's a whole lot of weight you're putting on top of that LD-S2 substance!!

Is that safe??? :? :? :?

It can cause cosmetic issues but S2 is sturdy enough I think. X0 weighs about both S2 and S1 combined:)

Ah!! Good to know ;)
...& that X0 sounds like a T-A-N-K 8-)

I've hurt my back several times moving laserdisc players around. Especially that bloody-heavy S1 :evil: ;) :evil:

I bought a DVL-91, LDD-1, and ~250 titles in my first batch, in DC.
Found out how lucrative lot busting was!

I go to DC often to grab lots and such - must have been a good dealer there.

I was given, with lots, DVL-909, CLD-D604, CLD-D503, Panasonic LX-K780, and bought a DVL-700 for $10.
Got a great deal on a HLD-X9, bought a VP-1000 for throw away money.
(I liked the treated metal panel on the 909 much better than the shiny Elite.)

Fell in love with the little, maligned 700.
Sold the 91, 909, 604, 503, and got a promise on the X9.
VP-1000 is for sale.

The Panasonic is in bedroom with in a small system with only analog (DAC) outs, 1000 in living room and DVL-700 is main player.

I sure could use a manual PDF for the Panasonic LX-K780, or even just an authoritative remote number (or group series that would work) so I could look for one.

All the Players I had to this day.

Sony MDP 212
Pioneer CLD 1600

This is before I realised that players don't automatically play all types of disc.

After that:

Pioneer DVL-909
Pioneer DVL-919E
Pioneer CLD-D925 ( which I sold just 2 days ego ).

Now I will be switching to a simpler model which is the CLD-S315
The reason is. Single sided players are in my opinion more reliable and less moving parts.
