Man, am I getting sick...I just took back my HD-A2 and bought an HD-XA2! What a nice player...nice and heavy! Firmware upgraded flawlessly. I'm kinda bummed though. My Parasound AVC-2500u has the connections for 5.1 analog, but I have to send the Parasound in to get what's called a 5.1 Volume Control card put in:
I fired everything up and switched to analog and thought I my speakers were going to blow out! The player must be controlling the volume until I get that module installed into my preamp. I was so ready to hear Batman Begins in TrueHD...oh well...the day will come.
I guess I missed that little upgrade nugget per:
Anyway, for all the XA2 users, I'd really like your feedback about the player.
