Hmmm HD-XA2 is $560 at Amazon.

So could this come in at $600-700 then?

My guess the tweaks are in the audio dept...maybe with some extra power for speakers and higher end audio connectors.

If you don't want tech news then get rid of Tech.

You know, I support Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii, although I don't have a Wii and don't really plan to get one in the future. But hey... I support it!

Nice to see another company releasing a HD player besides Toshiba. I've been happy my HD A1 since I first bought it. If the price is low enough this might be a good player to upgrade to.
