Even though this outs me as having watched it, in the first season (I think) of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, there are references to Laserdisc in two unrelated episodes. Seems one of the writing staff worked to get them in. It's something anyway.

Thanks for that, really cool.

With the PIONEER logo we all know & love (I think?).

Is it something that has been up for years or a retro thing? Whatever it is great to see & quite large in size by the looks of it.

Thanks again.

certainly not PIONEER's only logo design in their near-century-long history, but easily by far their very best.

long live Classic PIONEER...

there is something about the older logo from the 80s that I love though I can't figure out which I love more Sound Vision Soul or the Art of Entertainment. All earlier logs are just as nice.

I also prefer their older logo, their logo really meant something, first it references the origin of the company through the Omega letter, representing speaker impedance calculated in Ohms.
Secondly, the logo also conveys the purity of sound with the help of the tuning fork present on it.
They then both merge into one, to form the ultimate symbol, the very logo we all love and celebrate.

I don't love it. I definitely prefer Sony LD players and other gear.

I suppose someone forgot about you. Has Sony always had the same script since the beginning? I've never seen it different.

I've just discovered this wonderful track by Anders Enger Jensen; "DiscoVision." Thought you'd enjoy.
