I'm just about to move house, and plan on reintroducing the LD player into my home theatre system - mainly for nostalgia value. SO many of my friends have never even heard of LD, and are fascinated by a "DVD the size of a record"!
I've thrown away many things over the years, but my LD collection will stay with me forever.
