► ≤1988 = this player model became available in a certain year within 1978-1988, it does not mean that this model was manufactured until 1988.
► LDS = LD Single (20cm diameter, 1.2mm thin)
► LDS* = for playback of the thin LD-Singles the use of a "LD Single Adapter" Pioneer J-L20 is required for thickness adaptation.

► Devices for the incompatible systems "CRVdisc"/"Laser Videodisc" from Sony [Japan], "Optical Disc"/"Optical Memory Disc" from National [Japan], and "Laserfilm Videodisc" from McDonnell Douglas [USA] are not listed here, because there were no preregistered discs publicly available for them.
► Devices only for discs with digital video registration like e.g. "VCD" or "DVD" are not listed here.
► Devices for the black needle-based analog discs "TED"/"Bildplatte", "CED"/"Selectavision", and "VHD" are also not mentioned here.
