    Howdy folks-

    Just acquired a mint condition 704 from a friend. It was a rarely used hand me down from his dad who has misplaced the owners manual. After hooking it up and giving the beast a trail run with "Flash Gordon", I was stunned by the major improvement in sound and picture over my now defunct 503 (courtesy of a failed surge protector).

    Now I'm jonsing for a manual so I can see what all her bells and whistles do. Any suggestions where I could track down a pdf version, or an original for that matter?

    Thanks!

    Jimmy

    any specifics you need info about?
    The V DNR only works with a s video output.
    Most recommend the composite out as the best method of connection

    Jimmy - send you a pdf file of most of the manual. Someone asked the question a couple of weeks back and I scanned most of the essential portions of it. Phil

    Let me know if there is anything else you have questions about.

    Thanks guys-

    Phil- you've saved me $20. I called Pioneer and they wanted $14 for the manual and $6 to ship it to me!

    Thanks again!

    Jimmy, I know, I have a CLD-79 in the main system and decided to get the manual for it and since the 704 is roughly the same I picked it up afterwards for eventual use in my basement and bought some spare parts from Pioneer. Cos. should (and many do) put stuff like that on a website for downloading for free or a nominal amt. It can't be worth the trouble to them to print it and ship it vs. a one-time posting on a website.

    I have heard from people and specs that vdnr only works with s-video but I dissagree.

    (composite hook up)when I turn it on (vdnr)it still makes the rolling bars go away and improves pic.

    got me ???????????

    I like you just pick up one of these machines. I also am searching for a manual. If possible could you forward your PDF version to [email protected]
    Thanks
