He's not going to spring for an Oppo, unfortunately, else of course I'd put him with the 103. He's...

I have to disagree that 65" is a "medium set". Statistically, very few houses have 65" sets, let alone bigger. 55" is probably the largest size with significant numbers. I'd peg 65" squarely as...

Wrong. A good Plasma TV is not "CRAP". It's simply not suitable to your specific application. Which is completely different from being crap. You'd do well to learn the difference and not alienate...
