Good morning. The XA2 is in a class of its own hence why it is more expensive than other HD DVD players. The A35 and A30 do a very good job at upconverting. The XA2 will do better due to its video processing power built into it. So if you don't want to spend as much buy the A35 or the A30. I own the A30 and A3 and I love them both. I actually like my machines too funny. Check one out and see if you like it.
