Jeff, Pioneer quit using them in the early 90's. I've had atleast one player, CLD-52, that had one. I think that only dual-side players had them. The first player I got in the 80's, the single-side LD-838D didn't use one. My first dual-side player was the CLD-52 and it of course does. So, the answer to your query is, not applicable. Best wishes!
I had several early players that had this transit screw--all Pioneers-- The 99 is based on the 704;as in my Theta Data3--all no transit screw.--However these are all high-risk--for shipping, items.Insure it; pack it extra careful;use DHL,pay the price and sleep well.If you use Fedex or UPS--expect a headache.(in exchange for saving ship charges) Geo
is there any real way to avoid damaging these players? i had a cld-d701 that arrived broken (shipped from an ebay jerk WITHOUT a screw at all) and then the tracking guide proceeded to bust itself at random times, usually after a very ginger moving, even just from one spot in the room to the other. ugh. i need a new one now but i don't know if i should expect the same thing from any player. any advice?
