So far I am very impressed with the A35! I just started "playing" with it so more to come. I will say the pic Q for HD DVDs is outstanding. It is equal to or better than the XA2. I will be doing some good A/B comparisons tonite so more on that later. As for SD dvd upconversion I will also compare those as well. As for HBR AUDIO or bitstream passing it is already functioning. As you can SEE in the pics. I love what the onkyo 905 does with Dolby TrueHD. The A35 already has my vote for the starting spot in my theater. Of course if the XA2 received the update it would be equal to. Oh and one more quick fact, the LOAD time was the fastest next gen player I have had. Easily under 30 seconds (though I did not time it)... That is a huge plus for so many that complain about it. I personally have never let it bother me but the A35's load time is very impressive. The remote is not as nice but I am using the universal remote for my other HD DVD players I have had and that works just fine. And one last side note, no "FORCED" 1080p/23.98 mode with this unit either. Maybe one day Toshiba will make that possible with a firmware update. As for now the little time I have spent with the A35 it gets my vote for the best HD DVD player available... More to come...
