How much each? I have several LD players, and I'm not hung up on the
LDV-1000s, but if they are cheap enough, they might be interesting.

Do you know if the LDV-1000s are HeNe lasers or semiconductor? Some of the
early units were gas lasers, which would probably not work anymore due to
the Helium leaking out.

I do know that those who can, replace their old units with newer Pioneer
units (there are boards to convert the protocols from the DL and SA game
boards to newer players).

Personally, I play DL and SA with Daphne and a modern LD player (via
emulation under Linux). Still, though, a real model LD player would
be handy if a real board set ever crosses my path.

Obviously, I'd have them shipped to my house in Ohio (43232).
