    I have a Pioneer CLD-D515 PAL/NTSC laserdisc player, and I'd like to modify it so that I can get an optical or coaxial digital out by bypassing the internal D/A converter. This is so I can get DTS surround tracks and uncompressed PCM to pass to my reciever.

    Does anyone know of a product, or set of DIY instructions that would allow me to do as I wish. I'm relatively competent with soldering and electronics work.

    Precision Laserdisc sells digital output mod kits, although I didn't see your player listed. You may want to email them and see if it supported.

    Thanks Peter and Bob..

    I think I'll just go with Videotec, since they collect and do it for me. I'm not that confident with my ability with a soldering iron yet. I might go for an S-Video out too.
