Default Comparison of all available players + audio question

I'm currently using the Xbox 360 add on, and I'd like to upgrade to a standalone player given the current prices on eBay. Is there somewhere I can go that has a comparison of all the players?

Also, do all the current players decode all the lossless audio formats? My receiver is a good 5 years old, so it obviously doesn't support them.

Thanks!

Edit:

I did some research and answered my second question. My receiver doesn't have HDMI, so if I want lossless audio I need a player with multi-channel analog outputs. So which players have this?

Looks like the A35 or the XA2 are your only choices. You can find good deals on the A35 right now. Good luck with your purchase.

I just ordered an A35 for under $300 from Amazon and will be able to answer your question soon. The X-A2 is still the flagship player where the the A35 is the best 3rd gen player.
