    What's a used one worth? I've got one that I'm considering eBaying, along with a few DD LD's, and trying to figure out pricing.

    Thanks!

    From memory - orig. list was $498. I have not followed the used market in a while but way back (perhaps 5-6 yrs. back before more stuff made its way onto DVD they likely were going for $200-225). I believe the B&K has switching (for AC-3 and the regular digital out for DTS) like the Lexicon I have in the main system. I honestly can't tell any difference in the sound of demodulators. I have a Yamaha demodulator in the secondary basement system on another LD player. I needed the switching in the main system.

    I have two Yamaha DDP-1 decoders [RF, coax, and optical in, 5.1 out] that I got for $25 each. A demod is more convenient, but I wouldn't pay more than about $50 for it.

    Any anime (Japanese animation) LDs to sell?

    I bought one used four or five years for $25CDN. And the Pioneer 704 player from the same dude was only $125CDN. I still use 'em both. Cheers.

    Come to that, if the consensus is that it's only going to bring about $25, I'll gladly pay that for it now and save you the trouble of eBay. PM me?

    Thanks for the info and offers. I do see one on eBay right now for $102 with 2 days to go, so I'll keep an eye on it.

    I don't have any anime to sell (never really got into it); I would probably just move the DD stuff I have.
