Looks like they've been announced. Like the EU models, it looks like the HD-A2 is still only 720p/1080i, no 5.1 analog outs, HDMI 1.2, and out early October. The HD-XA2 is 720p/1080i/1080p24, HDMI 1.3, and out in late December or early January. I'm not seeing on-board TrueHD decoding or any mention of DTS-HD:MA on either player. ETA: The linked article has been updated with pics. It appears both players decode DTHD, but are limited to just the DTS-HD core. ETA2: Here's a link to the official press release.
