Today I've packaged up and posted the final three LaserDiscs I owned. Pink Floyd's Pulse, the DTS edition of The English Patient and the big one - the DTS LD of Titanic. Also last Sunday, my Japanese model CLD-HF9G LaserDisc player (complete with heavy-duty 110v downconverter) also went off to it's new owner along with a small assortment of discs I couldn't get rid of by other means. The player's last mission was to provide the source for my LD video captures of the original Star Wars movies. An expensive player - it cost me a cool £1400 back in 1997, it walked out the door for a slightly less-cool £200. It did, however, need some care and attention as well as an overall service. SO that's that. Rob's days of LaserDiscs are now gone for good. The format I ploughed so much money into since getting interested in HT as long ago as 1994, and which in some ways always impressed me more than DVD, has left the building. The Millennium DTS decoder is next to go on eBay. The renovation of my flat is nearing completion (though the new bathroom will have to wait as the quote has come in a lot higher than expected) and that means one thing - less volume and less bass. The Boston VR2000 THX certified subwoofer which has scared the living crap out of many a visitor to my current address just isn't going to work out in the flat, so that's been sold to, with no plans for a replacement. The Boston would have taken the plaster off the walls of the guy downstairs, I'm sure. So now I'm left with the TV, my trusty Denon AVC-A1 which has performed fearlessly since '98, the recently bought Denon 2900 DVD, and the Kef Q speakers. And a pile of interconnect cables that I no longer have use for. It just wont be the same.
