How to phrase this question... I'm looking to buy a better LD player in the
future. How can I find out what a CLD-D704 looks like in comparison to my
CLD-S104. If there's a website with screen captures from several players,
that would really help in my selection process. Otherwise, suggestions are
appreciated. Here's what i'm looking for in my new player:

1. AB play
2. Optical/Dig Coax output
3. Jog remote

As far as the budget goes, keep in mind I lack vast sums of money.

Thanks,
Jason

Screen captures won't do you much good. When an LD player pauses on a
CLV disc, it freezes on a half-resolution still field, not a
full-resolution still frame. This is not representative of what the
image looks like at the proper playback speed.

The D704 is vastly better than the S104. You'll just have to take that
on faith. D704s tend to sell around $250 used.
