I just acquired about 100 or so LD's from a neighbor that moved but no player. I found a Pioneer CLD-S-201 and purchased it for $40, it seems to work great so far. It didn't come with a remote control though, and I was wondering if it did originally when purchased new? It looks as if there is a remote control "jack" in the back of the unit...was this a hard wired remote "Jack", or for an infrared hard wire connection for a wireless remote? Can anyone answer this for me? Also, how does this player rate? Price new? Thanks!
