LRJ II full-function wireless remote includes a jog/shuttle
control and operational ease of all major functions including a
myriad of special effects. The remote can also be supplied to

The Runco LJR II is the
world's first laser disc player to be THX certified by Lucasfilm Ltd.
This is your assurance that it meets the highest standards of
performance and quality.
acknowledged leadership in video technology has been widely acclaimed.
Continuing this leadership role Runco has developed the LRJ II Laser
Early on, Runco recognized the significance of the Lucasfilm Ltd. THX
division and the impeccable standards they had developed for their Home
THX Audio Program and THX Laser Disc Program.
The THX Home Program was designed to truly bring the excellence of the
THX theater experience into the home without compromise. Working closely
with THX engineers, Runco set out to create a laser disc player which
would meet the exacting demands of a new set of video standards
developed by Lucasfilm.
These new THX video standards represent the performance levels necessary
to bring quality video imagery into the home which compliments
established THX audio requirements.
Beginning with the proven and highly regarded Runco LJR I platform,
modifications were made to achieve the important improvements needed to
earn THX certification. Then styling was applied to give this machine a
new visual elegance. Finally, the THX logo was applied with pride,
signifying the new horizons which Runco has reached with the LRJ II.
LRJ II is hand built and individually calibrated. Every unit undergoes
an extensive quality control process to assure the highest performance
levels and eliminate unit to unit variations.
This full featured auto reverse machine incorporates state-of-the-art
digital technology in every important operational parameter. Time-base
correction/velocity compensation, noise reduction, field memory, servo
control and Y/C separation are among the critical areas where this
advanced engineering has been applied.
Runco didn't overlook the audio section, either. Three custom audio
options (see back cover) are available to meet the exacting needs of any
installation requirement. The audio performance of the LRJ II easily
exceeds that of any other laser disc player. The sound has been compared
favorably to several high-end CD players!
And the LRJ II is the world's first laser disc player to provide a Dolby™
AC-3 RF output. This makes the LRJ II compatible with new laser discs
recorded with Dolby AC-3 5.1 digital audio soundtracks. As this new
technology comes on line, the LJR II is fully equipped to handle it.
The Runco LRJ II brings Hollywood home. Once again, the ultimate in home
theater performance just got a little more ultimate.
