Default Hd-a2/hd-xa2

I thought I would start this thread up since the HD-A1 is suppost to have been released today and I was curious to see if anyone has yet to see it yet.

I'd be interested to hear any thoughts on the XA2, as it is meant to be very similar to the XE1 which is releasing here in Europe in December.

If the HD-A2 underperforms in any way compared to the HD-A1, it'll be a disappointment.

The HD-XA2 isn't due until the end of the year.

A2 is due within the week of Oct. 30th. It is a concensus that the A2 will offer a better remote, faster load times and no 5.1 analog connections. I pre-ordered one as I refuse to wait any longer and want to get a start. I know I will buy more in the near future as the technology progresses and I we reach Gen 3 or 4 with 1.3 HDMI etc.

Holding out for the HD-XA2, then upgrading my receiver once HDMI 1.3 becomes reasonable in one. Great systems take time, is my motto.

If the XA2 does 1080p/24 output then I may buy one to go with my next HDTV which I hope is going to be the Toshiba/Canon SED in late 2007.

keep in mind that no receiver has been announced for HDMI 1.3. I know they said something about that monster one but i dont think it really decodes the lossless codecs.
