    Do you have a 1080i or 1080p display? Their 1080i model is $499, their HDMI 1.3 1080P model is $899-999. If you have an XBOX 360 the add on is only $200, but it doesn't support lossless audio.

    I have a 720/1080i LCD set and own the Toshiba A2. Great great HD player. I took the 360 add on back after six movies and haven't looked back. The lossless audio is great ,Using HDMI threw a AV receiver of course. If you want the better audio and dont have a HDMI AV receiver,then go with the XA2 ( $900-1000) with the 5.1 pre-outs.

    Sure. Id wait untill about May to see is the others go on clearance , I think Toshiba will have another unit out then. BTW Amazon has it for $409.00 but Id still wait.

    Question. I am confused about the XA2. Does it do 1080p out-of-the-box? I thought I read a thread were it was said that the XA2 only does 1080i currently, and is supposed to do 1080p via an upcoming firmware update.

    Thanks.

    Edited to add:

    Nevermind. I see that the thread that was the source of my confusion has been updated to add that the XA2 does 1080p/60fps out-of-the-box, and it will do 1080p/24fps via a firmware update.

    How would 24fps be an upgrade from 60fps?

    That Toshiba SD-9200 is an excellent DVD player, and from what I hear a pretty good DVD-Audio player as well. I own the predecesor SD-9000, their first flagship player.

    I'm trying to decide between the A1 or the A2 (+$30).

    Biggest determining factor is in SD upconversion quality.

    Any input there? I can pick up the A1 locally very cheap or send away for a good price on the A2.

    At 60fps it must do the 3:2 conversion from film based sources. At 24fps it doesn't have to convert. 24fps is the original fps speed of film.
