    Congratulations! I did the same thing about a year ago except my laserdisc player was actually free. A coworker gave me one he had been using as a doorstop. [​IMG]

    Where'd you find these, Todd? I figure they'd make a great introduction to the world of laser for me.

    I wish I would use my laserdisc player more. I have a pretty sizeable collection and my Pioneer player is still hooked up to my main system. It just seems that my DVD collection takes priority and I am so behind with just those!

    Congrats though on the LD purchases--hope you enjoy them as much as me.

    Sweet, CLD-990! I bought mine in 1991! [​IMG]
    I recently semi-retired it for a player with coax and RF outs (a modified D504, bought from another HTFer), but the CLD-990 served me well through a ton of heavy use, including repeated Star Wars viewings.
    If you need a manual for it (though it is pretty straightforward), let me know, I'm scanning my copy for the laserdiscarchive guy.
    My new player arrived only a couple of weeks ago, and I've been so busy at work that I haven't had much of a chance to watch anything...but I took an hour last night and watched the start of Empire.
    Gonna have to run me an all-LaserDisc nine-hour Star Wars marathon one day soon.

    E.T. CAV 4 disc edition is something I must get, but I won a copy of the NTSC Indy Trilogy (insisted on this, because the UK PAL version of Temple of Doom is cut in several places) and is due for delivery on Monday.
    I'm following the archived list of important laserdiscs here, and hope to get a few more by the end of next week.
    And Todd, I hate these long waits. [​IMG]

    Scott, it's amazing how few of the films on that thread have appeared on DVD since then. Best wishes!

    Todd, of course it will play it with PCM or analog sound. Go read the HT Basics primer I wrote and you'll fully understand how and why, I hope. BTW, the PCM sound is exeptional. Best wishes!

    Hmmmmm Star Wars AND Indiana Jones on Laserdisc. Now you guys have me thinking about getting a player just for that. Are there any places where I could buy a new LD player or is it a used market only now. How much should I pay for one? Can I still buy new LD's or is that a used market also. Man, if they would just release Star Wars and Indiana on DVD and make millions in the process I wouldn't have to think about doing this.

    Thanks, Todd. I'm going to start my quest for a LD player there as well.
    Besides Star Wars, I want to get a few films that aren't yet on DVD. Haven't seen an Incredible Shrinking Man LD for sale yet. [​IMG]

    Is there any e-shops around which sell second hand or unsold laserdiscs? (pref. in the UK, or Europe, but I'll consider almost anywhere.)

    You know, all this talk of laserdiscs has inspired me to crack out my definitive Star Wars set tonite!!

    Maybe I'll follow that up with English Patient and Sling Blade Criterions!

    Cheers,

    Felix
