I... didn't even know they still made players.
I always assumed those who had LD still had their original players, had one of the last combo players, or just bought used ones second-hand when theirs gave out.
Very sad news for those who still have it, on the top of my head for folks around here - Ben, Droo, George and Rand... and I think that's it. Of course, George is making DVD-R copies, so not so sad for him.
Still, that's great that Pioneer have supported the format this long. I never got into them sadly, but I did know of them, and remembered them when I joined here. Such a shame, even though they were a bit pricey, they still sound so much better then DVD and even Blu-ray! (though not in the picture category) All those great classic box sets, how I would have loved those!! DVD has some, and even the ones that are around don't come up to snuff with their LD counterpart (Droopy - although the latter non Tex look great!)
RIP LD, I hardly knew you.
