  leeeeeeet laserness

[moved from my LiveJournal (with some link fixes), where there is also a comment to this post that i did not move to here...]

Current Mood: satisfied
Current Music: some weird version of "god rest ye merry gentlemen"

behold the Pioneer Elite CLD-97 Reference LaserDisc Player...
 

it actually says "reference" on it, how cool is that... (not that you can see it in these pics...)

got it at Marvin's Electronics in Fort Worth for $270 after tax, which is a damn good price... (btw, the guy showed me the bluebook and it is $288, so, even when not comparing to ebay prices, it is a nice deal...)

we tried parts from our DTS Toy Story, CAV Toy Story, THX Wow Disc, The Stand, and our anamorphic The Fugitive, and then we watched It's A Wonderful Life, and so far we are extremely impressed... obviously, we wish it had AC-3 out but we are leaving our Yamaha CDV-W901 (Pioneer D503 clone) in the system and it does have it... this elite may now be our favorite player... the D704 goes over to miss mary's corner, and that leaves our pioneer 980, our D503, both unused and another D503 at my parent's house...

our only other complaint with the 97 is how it displays a frame during side flip and that sucks... if there is a way to disable that, i wish we would find it...
for another point on the good side, we finally get to use the 704 remote we love, we never use the 704, but, prefer the remote to any other...

so, it looks like today is movie-watching day, we picked up A Christmas Story the same day we got the It's A Wonderful Life, a couple nice LD finds for xmas...


so, anyway, merry christmas to us!
