Thanks B, again I appreciate your help. I was overly concerned, perhaps, because right now I am buying a BD so I can listen to CD's. Then I hope to build a surround system. When looking at the Panny BD's I looked at any improvements, so I'd be ahead of changes that might come in future units- I know this is kind of futile, but I usually buy equipment and KEEP it, not upgrading that much until it really becomes an issue.
Right now, I'm looking at the Panasonic BD's, can't afford the OPPO although it appears to be superior in a lot of ways. SOOOOOOO, now I can go forth and try and buy the best Panny without going overboard, ha. IF the newer 500 has truylly superior sound, reviews love it, I would consider it even though a 210, 220 is cheaper But I'll ignore any idea of multiple hdmi's since I won't use 3d. . I am going to check the specs (best I can) and see IF there is noticeable features I WOULD want. Any thoughts from the forum, welcome.
THANKS again BillP, that's why I do come here to learn.***** Not trying to doubt your or anyone elses expertise, it's MY ignorance on the technical end that causes all my questioning. But I do try and read about it and learn, I'm just very behind the times techincially and usually just try and buy equipment I know is recommended by people such as yourself. Cheating, I guess. lol.
