Default 360 add on vs standalone and what to get

i got one of those add ons and I am thinking of selling it to my friend. Will I notice a picture difference with a standalone?

If it is worth getting a standalone unit, what should I get? I got a 26 inch TV with no surround sound unit and won't get one untill my parents become deaf or untill I move out.

With your current setup, a standalone will not make a difference in Audio or Video.

Yeah, without surround sound there's basically no point to getting a fancy, high-end player. The add-on will do everything you need with your current setup, and a better player won't provide noticeable difference in picture quality, especially on a smaller screen like yours.

Stick with your add-on. By the time you are ready to get a surround system, there will be better and cheaper players out.
