Pioneer CLD-R5

Archived from groups: alt.video.laserdisc (More info?)

Any opinions on this player currently on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=3317&item=57645
38565&rd=1

Notably, how does it compare to say an Elite CLD79, CLD-99, LD-S9,
etc.

Thanks so much.

    It's a mid-level player, at best. It's not worth the opening bid,
    unless the champaign color entices you to open your wallet that much.

    It doesn't compare to any of the above. IIRC, Kurtis, Kevin, Julien,
    or Nicolas (can't remember exactly who) had it on par with the D504 or
    D604.

    Try doing a google groups search for "cld r5" to see what others think
    of it.

    Actually one small step above the CLD-D925.

    The NTSC equivalent of the CLD-D925 was the CLD-R4 in Japan, one
    iteration before this CLD-R5.
