1010 issues

Hi Brian,

I also recently purchased a 1010 on eBay that appeared to be in great
physical shape. Cosmetic aesthetics are flawless and the original
remote and box were also included. Like you, my primary monitor at the
moment is a 32" Sony and I noticed the 'crosstalk' that you speak of
on the very first title (Toy Story) that I played. Unsure if it was
the player or the disc, I then tested the same LD on other players
(DVL-919, CLD-606, CLD-504, etc.) and the horizontal fuzziness
disappeared. So all in all, I've probably watched 2 dozen movies on
the 1010 and a great majority of them really distracted me to the
point that I was focusing on the crosstalk and not the movie. That
being said, I'm afraid to take a gamble on another 1010.

Which brings me to Kurtis, also - I have an Elite CLD-97 that I
purchased several years ago on eBay that arrived with a 'stuck loading
tray' and thus will not open. I'd love to have it working/tuned and
possibly have AC-3 added. A 1010 tune up would be appreciated as well
and I'd love to place it in our bedroom as a trusty spare/secondary
unit.

Sorry if I veered off topic here. I'm obviously in a similar situation
and will be curious how you go about getting good performance out of
your deck, Brian. Any input from Kurtis or further replies on your
(Brian) dilemma will be greatly appreciated.

Sam

Whoops! Didn't mean to post an entirely new thread here. Anyhow, I
don't own a 704 or any of the prestigious Japanese players but I'm
curious about them (and to a lesser extent, the 704) myself. I'm not
too satisfied with my 606 and 919 players so they're probably going
before too long. Unless my 1010's just defective as hell, I couldn't
notice it cleaning up old discs (Rotters still looked virtually the
same on it). I plan to move up to a front projector like the Infocus
4805/Optoma H31 so I'm assuming something like the S9 using S Video
would be the way to go - though I worry about noise levels amplified
onto that large of a screen.

With the CLD-1010 or even the HLD-X9 they will not show rotting LD's
completely rot free, there will still be some rot but they will be more
watchable. As long as white streaking doesn't bother you the 3D Adaptive
filter in the LD-S9 would be a very good choice. The S9 also has the DVNR
to help with noise.

Even working perfect the 1010 is not quite as sharp as the 704/S9 type
player but it was a very good unit for when it was made. If you don't mind
a single sided player the 1010 is a very good deal for the price.
