Just got my A2 tonight. Thanks to Robert for getting these out to us. My apologies for my constant bugging.
Couple things I noticed:
1.) Pretty fast boot times. Comparable to my Sammy Upconverting DVD player I replaced.
2.) Tried out Parts of King King and it played great. Picture quality looked a little better than the 360 add on, but not major difference, but probably going from component to HDMI.
3.) Watched Chronicles of Riddick all the way through. No dropped audio or hiccups. Sound was great for DD+. I still had to turn my receiver up way higher than I do with LPCM from my PS3. Not sure what the differences are on the decoding of audio.
4.) Tried out V for Vendetta and selected the TrueHD track. My receiver showed PCM96. I remember someone asking about whether the A2 did 96khz audio, anad this one seemed to play it.
5.) I have the audio in the setup menu set to Auto via HDMI. My receiver does show PCM on the display, but under the "Display" section, the Audio is showing as Digital Bitream or something to do that effect. I would have expected to see PCM or something along those lines. Though I'm convinced it is passing the PCM audio since it reads it on the receiver display.
6.) I mentioned briefly that the Audio is MUCH lower than my BD playing movies playing LPCM. I watch Tears of the Sun at -10db on the receiver. I had to turn my receiver up to 0db to get somewhat decent audio out of the A2. This was also the case for V for Vendetta. I'm not sure whats going on, but for some reason the audio is lower. Hope this is fixable.
7.) I briefly played Gladiator to test out the upscaling and audio. It passed the DTS stream over correctly via HDMI. So that was good. The picture seems just as good if not better than my previous Sammy upconverting player.
All in all, I'm very happy with my player.
Now I wonder what I'll do with my 360 Add-on drive.
