Okay...I am at a loss here.....Help me out......please...Onkyo at $1200? Street Value at $800??
Reading threads from both formats...it appears that all agree that if the price of stand alone 1 format players ever reach the price points of $199-$249, J6P would be extremely tempted to pull the trigger....So then,why are we getting excited about a dual player for lets say for argument's sake....$$749?
If this player implodes at some point,it could be replaced by stand alones 2x,if those price points are eventually met...Plus you have great upscaling in both and a region free code in one..While I am pleased to see that other manufacturer's are,at the very least,giving us a half a loaf...the price,IMO,will not make the masses eager to buy...
So unless Onkyo gives us a ton more reasons(and features)to purchase this unit...My choice,at the present,is to wait until prices drop significantly for both formats.and then pick up a solid BR players to compliment my XA-2..
