My wife and I moved recently. I dragged along my last (albeit full) cube of laserdiscs with me. My wife asked what I planned to do with them and she suggested I save them to sell in the future as collectibles. I told her most were worthless and I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them. We are talking 30-40 lasers here. They are heavy, expensive to ship, etc. My player, a CLD-D604, is average but always got the job done. It makes a strange noise when starting up and puts an error code on the display. If you shut it off and turn it on, it works just fine. For now. I'm part of the laserdisc forever group on facebook. It's fun. People that are simply in love with the format. I was once that way. Nostalgia has always played a strong role in my likes of various movies and what not. I have been slowly eyeballing a new player to get. HLD-X9, the mother of all players, was out of the question. One just sold on ebay for $1600. Way out of my price range. Same for LD-S9, although that is $1000 or less. There is one other player, the CLD-R7G, that has the updated Japanese comb filter (though I'll just be using the RCA cables). A private seller offered me one for $900 delivered. Still too much. I stumbled across Yahoo Auctions in Japan. Apparently it's pretty popular. I found a CLD-R7G for just over $200. Wow! Recently serviced and cleaned. I bit. Used a bidding service and it cost me just over $300. I'm likely to spend upwards of $200 on shipping, but I'm okay with that. I may even send it to a guy that does service on them in the States and updates some of the parts (better clamp). Anyone interested in a kinda working CLD-D604?
