I agree, I wish the X5 was available in the US. How many people are actually buying $30 dowloaded movies on the X1/X10 with dd+ sound? My guess very few, as evidenced by the posts in the Sony...

If 4k streaming is near or at 1080p bluray quality on a big screen I will gladly welcome it for the convenience of it. As for audio, if they can at least get it to Vudu quality It will be passable.
