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.
The HLD-X9 has the following outputs; two composite, two Y/C, two analogue stereo, two MUSE, one Toshlink, one standard S/PIF coax, remote standard Pioneer, and finally one RF AC3. There is also one input for standard Pioneer remote control.
