Darn you Mattias! I'm stuck with ONE Pioneer HLD-X9 and ONE Pioneer HLD-X0 and one Panasonic LXHD20!
Holy crap, Man! How much did you spend on those babies.
It's times like these that I wish I had more money
I have just a ordinary Panasonic player. I give an arm for one of those High level Babes!!!!!!!!!
Tony, it sounds like that X9 is just holding you back, you should really just sell it to me
My wife and I still have all of the LaserDiscs we ever bought. It seems that the demand for them is too low for us to part with them, and some are unique in their presentations, extras, etc.

We've re-purchased many titles as DVDs - and some we'll probably never make the switch to, just because the movie fell out of favor.
Tony Kwong :p)
Matt Stone, Well, I got my both HLD-X9 new from Hong Kong 2001 and 2002. They cost me 2600$ and that included the shipping to Sweden (maybe a cost of 200$).
The HLD-X0 I got 1,5-2 month ago, that also from Hong Kong. But this was in very good used condition. I paid 2600$ for it and that also incl shipping (I would guess 400$ for this BEAST!).
Just so you don't think 'm fooling you:
And my HLD-X0 with my RP82:
Sorry for the OT!
Not too bad on the prices...but they're still, oh, about $2600 more than I have
I guess I'll just have to stick with my 704.
Mattias, that second X9 looks like a burden to you, you could have two X0's. You should sell me one of those X9's and get another X0
I got my X0 for very cheap, It was free I found it last winter, but I did have to pay $400 to have someone fix it.
No wonder you think your DVD look bad, LD players are blocking the Blue Barco CRT!
BTW your LD collection stinks! It's sitting right by the running shoes!
Damn! I wished I hadn't gone cheap when I got my LD-S9 a couple years ago. Back then I could have gotten an X9 new for $2500, ~$1500 used, and an H0 for a pretty reasonable price (compared to now).
Matt Stone, Well, the 704 is a good player. But if you win on the lottery..
greg_t, E-mail me, my contact in Hong Kong can sometime have a used X9 for 1500$ (S/H incl).
Tony Kwong, for FREE!!?? That is really great.
hehe, well, most of my DVD's looks really good but many do have bad compression/artifacts. I mostly see old/horror/b-movies/art/etc movies and not the "top mastering" few (LOTR, TFE, etc).
alan halvorson, Yes, to bad that you didn't. I had a LD-S9 but sent it back. On the few superb LD's the S9 not soo much after the X9. But on the other 95% of my LD's, the red laser in X9 (and other stuff) cleaned up the picture much better.
...Like I said on previous "Japanese LD player" threads, I really didnt like the S9, I sold it for the X9 and so far it has been great. I like my old Kenwood Pioneer clone better.
You might want to becareful on used X9's as the more used they are the weaker the laser. I had that exact same problem with a used X9, transport was not as good with reading bad condition LD's. I decided to get a new one at the time, one of the last few batches made.
Staying on topic, I find that a lot of poorly treated titles that were released on LD look better than that same title poorly released on DVD!
I'm considering getting a used X9 from Nicolas. I like the service that he provides. He will take the player to Pioneer Japan and has the laser pickup (includes the tracking motor), spindle motor, and belts replaced for a fee. I think for a used X9 it is a very good idea to have done.
I'll probably do it when I'll finally leave Japan (again!) to my X9 for safety. Seems like Pioneer is keeping service and spare part for 10 years after discontinuing LD manufacturing.
They stopped in 2002, that means support in Japan until 2012. I think they still have to support a wide market of LD players for Karaoke Bars.
Another good reason to stick to Pioneer.
I keep my CLD-D925 for PAL replay, the NTSC replay is really bad. I got a CLD-R5 that I sold for a LD-S9 that I keep as a backup and for LD-G capability. The HLD-X9 is the main player and I use it almost everyday (including this morning to check a Sheila E/Romance 1600 and a Genesis/Three Sides Live I just received).
