Pretty sure the last Panasonics to have that feature were the X20/500 series. I know my 230 doesn't do audio at 1.5 speed.

I am moving into a new home and trying to get my Home Theater going after being out of it for 12+ years. Recently picked up a Samsung JS8500 for primarily sports and movies, so I wanted to see what would be a good blu-ray player to go with the TV. I have an old Kenwood Sovereign Receiver with a 7.1 Definitive Technology setup, but that received was pre HDMI so I am not sure how compatible it is going to be with everything now a days anyways. Would like to keep it under $250, but if I going to be missing out on a key feature I can adjust a little. Thanks for the help!

First thing you need to decide is if you really need lossless 7.1, in which case you'll need an old player to go with that old receiver ($400 range, slow, less compatible), or if you can live with lossy 5.1 (better than DVD quality audio), in which case many newer, less expensive players ($100 range) will work fine.

I am ok with the 5.1, because the room it is going into I am not sure if I would be able to have all the speakers anyways! Hopefully someday I will update the Kenwood receiver. Do you have a specific player you would recommend? Thanks Again!
