Hi, this is my first post on this board. I am looking to get a DVD player for my dad. I am willing to spend $200 total - cables included. However, if there is a much better player for a little bit more money, I will go over the limit. He has a Sony 36" XBR 450 - its HD ready. He has never owned a DVD player and still uses a VCR to watch movies. I think he will be pleasantly surprised with DVD's especially on his TV. I was thinking either the Panasonic S55S or the Sony DVP-NS725P with Monster Video component cables. I definitely want this DVD player to be progressive scan but DVD-Audio or SACD capabilities arent a must. Any input from yall would be greatly appreciated. Also, what do yall think would be the best place to buy it at? Its for fathers day so I am not in a hurry.
