So here’s the story. I recently snagged a Pioneer HLD-X0 for 200,000 yen. That’s $1,761.24 USD as of this writing.
Here’s the link to the exact auction for info: http://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/k278262761
Problem is, like you’d be able to guess, I don’t have 200,000 yen! I just want it so bad to capture the Laserdiscs I’ve collected thus far.
For those of you who don’t know, the HLD-X0 is the pinnacle of Laserdisc playback, video-wise, and more importantly audio-wise. Everything comes in clear as a bell on this baby.
Now for the time being, I will try to fund the purchase as best I can, but to make a successful transaction more likely, I will probably need the assistance of my fellow video/audiophiles.
Anywhere around the $1,000-mark is extremely cheap for an HLD-X0. Heck, it’s good for any high-end Laserdisc player.
If you’d like financially assist me, PM me and I’ll give you my PayPal information.
Now this venture will not just be for Laserdiscs I’d like to preserve. If you have any Laserdiscs you’d like to have digitized in the best quality, over and under, send it/them to me if you have them or tell me where to buy them and I’ll try my best to finance them when I can.
Thank you for your time and I hope we’re able to make this happen together. ^_^
