Re: HD DVD Players Sold Out Nationwide This Weekend - Blu-ray In Trouble?
I'm not going to give in and say "Ok, BD are all great upconverters," because it would be a lie. Accept the fact there are poor, average, above average, and good upconverting BD players.
Some even use the same chipset as Toshiba but still don't take full advantage of the chipset.
The Onkyo HD DVD players will do as good a job as the XA2 if not better at upconversion. I've heard they've tweaked the chipset as well as made noticable improvements to CD playback.
Obviously the Meridian will have a specialized Faroudja chipset made to make the most out of HD DVD and upconversion.
