Default BB does have the deal!

It is true! Just picked up mine along with an A2. I was looking for an A20 and the guy checked the computer and it showed the XA2 for $499.

As I suspected.... get 'em while they are hot

My Quote form yesterday:

I too am having a hard time seeing the benefit of THe A35 over the X-A2.
Both have the Reon Chip, Deep Color ia a moot point (Nothing out there to take advantage of it) and HDMI is a non-issue if the player decodes to PCM by design in every case.

Does this mean the new player decodes to LPCM and back to bitstream again to send over HDMI 1.3 so the Receiver can decode and apply DACS and BM?

If this is the case I think I would rather pass the LPCM over HDMI and have my pre-pro apply its DACS and BM which the X-A2 can do.

I gotta tell you guys, if Toshiba keeps the Firmware comin' (support for 24fps)
Then I think the smart play might be to get an X-A2 as they are reduced to make way for the A35's.

You're lucky, up here in our Best Buy in Canada the XA2 is selling for $999.99 Canadian dollars.

Since the dollars have reached about parity, that's a lot of money. lol I'm buying one off of a buy on avs for 485 USD plus King Kong shipped, so that's still a better deal for now.

My local bb does not carry the XA2. Are you referring to the online site or is this a retail bb??

The deal is for stores also. The store I went to (Southern California) had six in stock.
