The best player for those discs is a Pioneer VP-1100 or a Sylvania VP-7200. The Pioneer VP-660 also works well.
Avoid the Sony LDP-1000 as almost all of them have laser tubes that have gone to air.

The Pioneer LD-S2 is about the only SS laser player that can play the disks but the old HeNe tube based players do better.
