Peter Brazier… $15,000 I’ll Wait Till It Goes Down In Price And All The Bad Bits Have Been Worked Out lol!

Will Cornell… They had these 25 years ago and the price was obscene then. I doubt waiting for the price to drop will help.

Yvonne Cleland… We have a laser disc player and a large collection of laser discs from the first time around at Bexhill Museum.

Will Cornell… 12″ Laser discs that mostly had movies were very big in Asia–much more than NAmerican and European markets. I remember an HMV or Tower in Hong Kong that had multiple floors and one whole floor dedicated to the 12″ Laser discs–and mostly for sale, they had no rental market like VHS and Beta here in the US. This turntable above reads standard standard vinyl LPs…and they had some similar players back in the late 80s…I remember reviews in Stereo Review and classified ads in the back selling them. I called their toll free number to see what they cost–which was more than a car at the time. No thanks….

Ralph Town… I want one!!
