I am not a fan boy of any paticular technology I just want decent HD dude. The setup I have now works well. Would a top-of-the-line HD DVD and BR unit work better? Sure. I don't care to shell out another couple grand for a slight improvement. As it is I am having custom speakers built (several thousand dollars) and am looking for a good receiver to pair with them (likely Denon). I am also looking for a sub.
A Toshiba HD-XA2 is $500, not a couple grand. If you think an X360 HD DVD addon even comes remotely close to it in A/V quality then you are a lost cause. The improvement isn't slight, it's massive. I've ran an HD-A1, XA1, A2, XA2 and X360 addon. I don't need to "walk a block" in your shoes as I've been further.
