Pioneer HLD-X9

Published: May 12, 2021

Even better than the Elite CLD-99 would be the Pioneer HLD-X9 which has a better laser (narrower-beam since it uses a visible and not IR diode), better voltage regulation (47 discrete ones among its many, many PC boards in the player), 5-way parallel Y/C separation, etc. and the ability to also play MUSE HiVision laserdiscs.
