I dunno how current the info is for Mr. Crosthwait, but that's what I had in
my rolodex.

I still own a few consumer Beta machines myself, but they're a total pain to
use.  The Sony SL-HF1000 is particularly problematic because the video heads
are a little soft and tend to clog up very quickly.  Not a great machine as
a player.
