    Can you believe I built an HT in the basement revolving around a DVD player of course, but I now have a LD player to join the ranks. My friend was about to throw out a Pioneer LD player he has had for atleast 10 years. I said NO. I'll take it. Granted it only has composite video out and analog audio, but I just purchased Star Wars Special Edition box set from 1997 and was ecstatic to watch this movie on the big screen. The picture was not as bad as I thought(after fiddling with the video processor for about an hour). Not as sharp as a DVD, but very tolerable. I have a whole new world to enjoy since many A movies are not on DVD yet. Plus used LD are very cheap.....

    Not as good as DVD, but WAY WAY better than VHS that's for sure!!! LD is a lot closer to DVD in quality than it is to VHS!
    You need to go and find the ORIGIAL non-"SE" THX trilogy. I think www.pioneerdirect.com still has it for sale.

    Why?
    Why do you keep hounding me and harassing me and hounding me?
    It's not like I don't have anything better to do, you know.
    It's not like the Phantom Cruiser is going to wax itself.
    It's not like last night's burrito stain will just up and remove itself from my cape.
