    I have come across a brand new Pioneer CLD-D515 laserdisk player with AC3 out.
    Unfortunatly it hasn’t got S-video. Does anyone know if the scart is RGB? so I can use my RGB to component converter to hook up the player to Iscan/Ptae100.

    And what should it cost?

    Hi,

    There is NO rgb output on the Pioneer although some Sony players had rgb.

    Laserdiscs are recorded as composite video so the lack of s-video shouldn't be a problem. You can connect the Pioneer directly to the composite video input on the Iscan.

    Not sure about prices on these.... have a look on e-bay and see what LD players are going for.

    On thing that might put you off, is the need for a AC-3 demodulator which goes between your amp and the LD player. You can't connect the AC-3 output directly into a digital input on your amp.... it needs to be a special AC-3RF input. If your amp doesn't have the AC-3RF input you'll need to buy one of these devices....... they go on e-bay for around £60- £80.

    Thanks for the info Brian

    I will check tonight whether my Marantz SR9200 have the modulator.

    I might just stick to DVD and rebuy the few titles I have on laserdisk.

    cheers
