I have a 30k (not U) from Japan. The menus are in Japanese. The remote is different. As previously stated, no D-Theatre. BSS tuner is included and will play BSS tapes. AAC built in decoder. Same ergonomics. Mine has worked flawlessly for over 200 2 hour tapes with no head cleaning. That's pretty much it.
