Dave: We use Shoemaker Motion Pictures in Indianapolis. We just priced
Panasonic model #AGLD20. The institutional price was $529.00. If you
want to call them: 317.547-8000. Ask for Randy Shoemaker.

I have no experience with laserdisc/DVD combination players, but I will
probably try to order a couple in the fall. However, I think prices run
about $900.
