Donzilla, Good idea about the coupon. However, we dont usually compete with our dealers and they would probably be upset if we did. Try SewellDirect.com for a better price or any of our other dealers. They might haggle with you.
Although they advertise it at list price, we dont tell them what to sell it for.

Unhappy Re: Toshiba HD XA2 True HD Audio

Got an email saying there's a $100 mail in rebate on this model, and an offer for 5 free hd dvd movies. Unfortunately both of these offers are for the US only.
No $100 rebate offer in Canada and only 3 hd dvd movies already in the box.

The HD-XA2 has the capability of passing the bitstream of Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD via its HDMI 1.3 output to a receiver with HDMI 1.3 inputs and Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD decoding capabilities.

All is not lost if you have the HD-XA2 but no HDMI 1.3 inputs. The player can also decode the TrueHD and DTS HD internally and output the audio as LPCM over the HDMI output to a receiver capable of receiving PCM audio via HDMI, or out through the HD-XA2's analog outputs to your receiver.

First Generation Toshiba players were only capable transmitting 2-channel Dolby TrueHD, thus Dolby Digital Plus was the best audio from those players. That was corrected with the second generation players.

So, basically, HDMI 1.3 can carry the non-decoded bitstream version of the 2 formats. Any other version of HDMI can carry the internally decoded PCM version of the 2 formats.
