How much did that cost Toshiba to put Onkyo's name on one of their players?
It's not very different from the majority of their products.

They got the XA2 and made some minor adjustments but noticable improvements. I hear the redbook playback on them is better for instance. So yeah it's pretty much just a rebadged XA2 but they did do some adjustments (unlike the RCA unit).

Seeing as how Onkyo does this with the majority of their DVD players I don't see any real need to complain. In fact some mid fi brands like NAD and others just take a Pioneer unit rebadge it and make slight adjustments. That hasn't hurt their sales.
