According to AudioRevolution.com's review, the LD section of the DVl-91 DVD/LD
combo unit was sourced from the 70x series, namely the same parts used for the
CLD-D704 and CLD-79. A lot of you seem to regard the 704/79 quite highly, but
pan the combo units for having "inferior" LD-playback in comparison. I'm well
aware of the shortcomings of the 91's early DVD section, but I fail to
understand how it could be any worse where LD is concerned then a 704, assuming
the parts are the same. Can anyone comment on this? Has anyone actually done a
heads-up between the 704 (or 79) and a DVL-91? Has anyone even ever tried both
units at home, on the same display? I'm not particularly interested in a combo
unit, I'm enjoying the quality DVD players we already own and have no need for
another. But I'm genuinely curious.

It's more commonly believed to be the LD section from the CLD-D606.

At one point, I had both the DVL-91 and Elite 79 hooked up to the same
tv set.
The 79 has a slightly sharper picture. I then compared the DVL-91 to my
DVL 700. The picture was identical.
