My previous laserdisc player died a couple months ago so I had to replace it... decided to give the DVL-919 a try, seeing how it goes since I can’t really afford a HLD-X9 just yet :) (convincing my wife that I should spent $1000+ onto a player for a dead format is more the problem if I’m honest)
I bought that one, which is pretty cheap compared to prices outside of Japan...

Hopefully I like it, if not I guess I’ll just sell it back... we’ll see.
