Certainly fits the description, perhaps my memory fails me on this as I thought the model I'm asking about was at least 2-3 years old and was an "LVD" model.
But thanks for the answer, apparently that was their first model.
I originally came across it at a forum for a hi-fi store out of Washington I believe, a small single proprietor business run by a fellow who apparently "knew his stuff".
fwiw, in searching today I have user comments on their vhs dvd combo unit displaying horizontal red lines after a few days use...
maybe not so litup, lol
