PIONEER LD-V1001 - (dimensions: 20" x 15"  Weight: 26 lbs.  Color: black)   This NTSC laserdisc player can be used in all the same games listed above for the LD-V1000.  NOTE:  The LD-V1001 is identical to the LD-V1000 except that it uses 100V power (Japanese standard) rather than 120V (American standard), so you must run it off a step-down isolation transformer in American games to avoid damage to your game's power supply and/or damage to the laserdisc player.

All instructions & documents above for the LD-V1000 also apply to the LD-V1001 (other than the fact that it runs on 100V power).
