My father is looking to buy a DVD Player and so far we found good prices on these 2 models. The Pioneer is about 30$ (Cdn) cheaper than the Panasonic and he'd like to know if there is any difference between the 2 that would make the Panasonic worth the extra 30$. Any reliability/compatibility issues with any of these? He doesn't have a surround setup so stereo through the TV's Speaker audio performance is important here. Any special DSPs that fool the ears to sound like 5.1 or those Dialog Enhancer options could be useful (And will be tried). The TV he's going to hook it up to is a normal (Non-HDTV, Non-Prog) 27" Sony Wega (Anamorphic Squeeze Capable) Using Component Video Cables so is there is any known issues with Component Video output on these? Is the Panasonic worth the extra 30$ for him?
