I've had several requests in the past year for information on where to get
regionless players from staff at local museums, libraries and one famous US
Studio.

Guess I've established a reputation with my interest in Japanese videos.

I bought a regionless player, a Sampo, for less than retail two years ago
at Mikado in San Francisco.

There are some US made discs that will not play on regionless players,
however the Sampo can be reset via a menu.

I've been pleased with this machine and some of the images in my second
book were captures from Japanese DVD discs using this machine.
