If the Reon processor is the only difference, then I'm leaning toward the A35 vs XA2. I think the major benefit (but I'm not sure) to that processor would be in upconverting DVDs and better 3:2 processing. If your going to use the 1080p/24 output, then I don't think you need to do any of this processing (i.e. no upconverting and no 3:2). Your display should be able to handle brightness, color, contract, etc. so I don't see this feature on a player as being that critical-nice to have for sure but not critical.
