Just got into Laserdisc...not too bad. Anyone else have this?
Hi gang, how goes it? haven't been in this forum in quite some time. Back in the 90's i was intrigued by Laserdisc's and recently i decided to venture into this old field. I know that it's an older analogue technology and with all the new flat panels, most wouldn't think of getting into this, but i have to say, i kinda like it. I know the picture isn't "high def" but i don't mind it. I kinda like the roughness of the picture. I also like handling these old shinny discs, they were cool back then and still cool to me today.
I've tried using a DVD recorder machine to try and upscale the image but didn't really like it, found it a little "washed out", so went back to Composite cables.
One thing i have to say...in terms of Sound, i really like the LD, more depth to it, better effects. I find the sound better than most of the new BR movies...anyone see it this way?
As for the player i'm currently using a pioneer CLD-D703 machine, it's not bad, i like that it can play both sides of the disc.
Well, i've gotten a few movies and always on the hunt for more.
Hope to hear from you guys, and if you have any advice, let me know.thanks
