    I'm looking into a CLD LD player made by Pioneer and had a question about audio out. Does the digital out make a huge difference when compared to the analog outs? I was looking at getting a 504, but it doesn't have digital out. I know this means no DTS, but I don't have any DTS LD's...

    Mathew, the digital out is great for all Digital Sound (PCM) LD's. When you have to use the players analog outputs and your reciever then has to redigitize the signal for it's DSP, that reduces the sound quality. The Elite CLD-59 is a very similar player. Pic-wise, it's the same. It has a coaxial digital output though. I'd hold out for a CLD-59. Best wishes!

    The sound from the analog outs only on your PCM LaserDiscs will be fine. Even in analog form it will smoke any VCR, DSS, and most other sources. If you don't have a large LD collection don't sweat it.
