I want to purchase a blu-ray player to connect to my Samsung LCD tv. At this time, my receiver is a Pioneer Elite 45, which I will be upgrading in the future. I guess I have 2 situations that I need answers before & after I upgrade the receiver. I am considering the Panasonic 35 & 55 and the Samsung 1500 & 2500. Which of these units would I need to benefit from the newest sound tracs on blu-ray now and after the receiver upgrade and how would it have to be connected? I would prefer to be able to watch a dvd without having to have the surrond receiver on (ease of use for wife).
