    Hello everyone. I am somewhat of a beginner when it comes to collection LaserDisc. I currently own a Pioneer CLD-909 and have been thinking of upgrading. I have two in mind but wonder which one is better mostly from a picture and sound quality point of view.They are the Pioneer CLD-2080 and the Pioneer CLD-1010. What do you chaps think. Thanks for your time.

    Welcome! I'd skip the 2080 and not even consider it.

    The 1010 is a pretty solid (and often overlooked) player. It has a red diode laser, similar to the highly regarded HLD-X9, which is good for reading through light to moderately rotted discs and also discs with fingerprints or scratches. It [the 1010] is, however, a very old player from 1987 and so it does not have a digital output. Also, belts may be worn due to age or idle/non-use over an extended period of time. I do have a 1010 as one of my back-up players and it's had some issues with dot crawl toward the end of sides; after an allignment and basic servicing it's runs well and given a good, low noise picture.

    To throw my two cents out there, a Pioneer D704 may be your best bet for a quality 'bang for the buck' player. If you get more serious about the hobby over time and want to move 'up' (or laterally, depending on who you talk to), you can always consider options such as the LD-S2, CLD-97, HLD-X9, or HLD-X0.

    Thanks for the help. How about two sided players at a good price. I have also been looking at a Pioneer CLD-3070 as I have noticed most of my movies are on two disc's. Plus figured might as well go ahead and get a two sided one for now as I am semi series about LaserDiscs. Thanks for your time.
