I wanted to do something special for my 200th post, and that special something is a new (well new to me at least) Pioneer DVL-909 Laserdisc and dvd combi player. I've been wanting to get hold of one of these for years, but I've always found them just too expensive. Ken from Sogoodreviews recently managed to get hold of one and this reminded me to have another look as my trusty, modded Pioneer CLD-1450 player is 20 years old, and frankly on it's last legs.
I've tried to pick one up on ebay countless times but never managed to actually win. I found this on a classifieds forum, the advert had received no interest, so I made an offer, which the seller snapped up. It's a great piece of kit and features both sides playback for laserdisc, which is clearly one of the coolest inventions ever.
All I need now are some lovely new Hong Kong laserdiscs to play on it, if you are looking to off load any, please send me an email.
