I visited three different Best Buy stores around me, which all got their latest shipment on the Toshiba HD-A2 players today, and they are all Made in Japan. Is the Toshiba HD-A2 player now Made in Japan, because it used to be Made in China?
Unfortunately, the HD-A20 and HD-XA2 are still Made in China.
More likely demand is close to/exceeding supply so Toshiba kept the Japan manufacturing plant up and running to meet consumer demand. So i'd expect both Japan and Chinese models to be around for some time.
It is the same player. The only difference is the assembly point. If you pop the cover you will see this. Toshiba has final assembly plants all over the world. I would not be surprised that in the future you might see a player made in Mexico or even in the USA. Car companies do it all the time. Toyota makes the certain models of their cars in many countries.
