The Pioneer DVL-909 is the replacement for the DVL700 (with the biggest difference being the replacement of 9bit with a new 10bit video processor). This late 1990s model of combination player included several new features, including twin pickups, one dedicated to DVD and the other to CD/LD, both side play (auto reverse), digital audio outputs, S-Video outputs, component video outputs.

The DVL909 had a good selling point as both European North American models could play both NTSC and PAL region LaserDiscs. The LaserDisc play quality is average but is superior to the other mid-range and low-end models produced in the early 1990s. Noise level is low and image is sharp and stable. However, DVD play quality is not even catching up to the cheaper DVD players that you could (or still can) buy at discount stores.
