    I am purchasing a DVD player as a gift for a friend and of course, I can't ask what he wants.....I do remember him talking about a progressive scan DVD player, he also said it must have some specific type of processor (of course I don't know which one). He said there were 3 types of processors and 2 of them were MUCH better than the third one. He wants it to play MP3's, CD's, obviously DVD's, VCD's, and basically anything else while being a changer too (5 disk). I read a few posts on here and saw the Sony 700p and the Panasonic rp56 we recommended a lot. I haven't done the research yet, but do either of these meet all of the requirements? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance,
    Dennis

    If you could also lead me in the right direction as to where to buy these products online, that owuld also be helpful!!!!

    Hello Dennis,
    The changer requirement eliminates the two you mentioned. Actually that requirement helps to refine the process as there are only a few models which meet your friend's needs.
    Here's a few helpful sites:

    I suggest you click on as many as possible to bring yourself up to speed on what they offer. Also, this way you will be able to see the price differences which can vary considerably.

    I think Panasonics are considered the most versatile (RP-56's chip is rated very well in the price range). The Toshiba has been in the business the longest and are well regarded too. I personally just got a Sony NS900V and love it so far.
