This is a no frills laserdisc player that has all the basic functions that you'll need.

Based on a simple to work on chassis.
Has good picture quality for a BOL player.
Can play most DiscoVision discs without trouble.
I have gotten it to play a GM disc but it doesn't recognize it as a CLV or a CAV disc.
Very reliable.
Can enable CX on discs without the Auto-CX code.

There is only analog sound.
Laser locks on early CLV titles.
Can't play CDs.

Great player for a newcomer to the format who isn't sure if they stick with it, but also makes a great backup player in case your main player has to be repaired. If you find one I wouldn't spend more than $15-$20 for it.
My Players: DVL-700, CLD-2080, CLD-3070, CLD-D503, CLD-S104, CLD-V2400, and LD-V2200

appears to be roughly based on the 1990 CLD-1080 chassis. -1080 was my very first LDP, only had it for a month or so
before it's destruction in a rather careless accident. Oooooh, Get Me... 8-)
* PIONEER CLD-3030 Compatible LDP (1988) (( ))
