Pioneer CLD-99S

The Pioneer CLD-99s is the Japanese equivalent of the US CLD-3030

The top priced CLD-99S features a digital picture memory that allows still frame and other effects off of CLV discs.  There is a variable-speed jog/shuttle scan feature and 20 track programme memory.  Basic control functions are on the machine, and the jog/shuttle feature is on both machine and remote.

The price is Y158,000 - a touch more than the model it replaces, but a lot less than the near double the price LD-S1 that doesn't even play CD/CD-Vs.  It's obviously much better value for money.  The resolution spec is up too and 420 lines horizontal lines with the same 46dB S/N figure is quoted.
