I have an XA2 and it has a pretty good DAC. Not sure about the A2. My issue is it makes for a terrible transport. Any slight imperfections in CDs causing skipping. I think it is to due to the different laser used by HD-DVD.
I currently use a Panasonic s97 for CDs and DVD-Audio, and I've ordered an Oppo 980 so I can use SACDs.
