Those who buy this player tomorrow, be prepared to buy a new receiver. I
and many others found out that our older receivers' Dolby Digital processors are not fast enough for the new HD players. You'll hear the sound break up. This only occurs with bitstream, PCM 2 channel is not effected. I had to give up my nice Sony ES30 for a new Denon. Just didn't expect to have to buy another receiver. I wish I had waited just one week more to purchase my A2, I could have saved $129.
