This is just going by looking at Ebay auction, but it seems to me that 
the two big players in laserdisc were Pioneer and Sony.  They make up 
most of the LD auctions, and the Marantz LD players I have seen look 
like rebadged Pioneers.

Is Pioneer, "Pioneer" in Japan, or is that strictly a trade name for 
export?  Sort of like Panasonic is really Matsushita-Kotobuki?
