    The mirrored finish. It's basically a RP82 without DVD-A capabilities.

    When I posted the thread here about the 'RP82 being available at Crutchfield last night, I too noticed that and was taken aback by the fact that the 'XP30, without DVD-Audio, is more expensive. As Gabriel said, my first thought was that you are paying for the mirrored finish. Plus, the 'XP30 has a slimline design. It seems with the 'XP30, it's all about style. Sony has used similar marketing techniques recently. It released a $300 DVD player some month back that is very small and can be mounted standing on its side. It is a basic DVD player, yet it sold for the same price as the DVP-NS500V, which offers SACD. Sony now has some odd-looking DVD player out (no SACD). I saw it at Best Buy and said to myself, "Why?".
