Tiger claims the new A30 is poor as well, which would be the first Toshiba unit to be described as such. I haven't seen this unit so I can't comment. I know the A3 and A35 are good at it. I haven't seen the A30 so I can't comment, but it's doubful he is wrong.
Denon has a combo player in the works (as well as a HD DVD standalone) and I think the combo will see the light of day (not sure on the stand alone).
Arcam has a combo player in the works too.
Obviously the Arcam would be high end.
