I don't see how it could have better sound by comparing the innerds. This is likely internet mumbo jumbo being spit out by people for some reason scared by the combo player.
It appears to me to be better at HD DVD than the new A35 from Toshiba but not quite as good as the XA2 (despite using the same video chip). For BDs its as good as I've seen.
Sound wise I've been as impressed as I was with any other unit.
Unlike other combos of the past, HD DVD and BD use a lot of the same tech (codecs, etc) so the machine is actually really good at both.
