1.5 million yen. Perhaps the most expensive deck ever?

Yes... for that price you would get 2x brand new HLD-X0 back in the day... and be able to play "both sides" assuming you buy 2 copies of each LD!

But the X0 wouldn't let you input/output 5ch sound. They must have put half a MUSE decoder inside (audio section only) for this?

What would have been the use cases?
Museums or Movie theater or Corporate, using the audio input for ambiance music in-between (or microphone)?

Another proxy-bidding war sent this unit up JPY 143,969 (US$960) which is about the price of a HLD-X9 ...

I guess it is for collection/completion/analysis/museum?

Collection nearly complete. Auction was brutal. It extended 2 hours and 5 minutes beyond initial closing time.

Managed to acquire:
4X HLD-X0
HLD-V500
HLD-V700
HLD-1000
HLD-X9
HIL-C1
5X HIL-C2EX
HIL-C2NE
HIL-C3
LX-HD10
XR-HD1

Missing the Hitachi and Runco HLD-1000 "clones" and the Panasonic HIL-C2EX clone along with the Gold HIL-C1 and industrial HIL-1000

with the exception of the HLD-V500 being unknown working condition all other players have been serviced and are fully working.

I really interested in the audio section of this player. Should have answers in a week or so.
