Default Is the A30's 12-bit DAC better then the A20's 10bit?

Just sold my A20 to a client who needed it for a job. I have to replace it now. I'm just wondering if I should grab an A20 now while I can get the 7 free disc deal or wait for the A30 which "may" have better picture quality but no free extra five discs from the Toshiba rebate (or does the five freebies still apply to the A30?)

Anyway, I notice the A30 has a 12-bit DAC as against the A20 having a 10-bit converter. In the broadcast video world this can make a difference but I need a layman's eye who has both decks to see if it really makes a difference, if any.

I have a Pioneer 50 plasma; whilst 1388 x 768, will accept 1080P 24Hz signals.

Cheers,
Peter
