The Toshiba HD-A3 (MSRP $300) is the entry-level model of Toshiba's third-generation of HD DVD players. It is very similar to its predecessor, the Toshiba HD-A2, and does not offer any significant improvements to this player other the improved form factor of the player. There are two noticeable changes: Dolby TrueHD and DTS-MA(core) are still passed over HDMI, but they are now downrezzed to Dolby Digital 5.1 (640Mbs) instead of the HD-A2's DTS 5.1 (1.5Mbs). This supports non-HDMI non-DTS AV receivers, but users with DTS support may want the HD-A2. Also, the HD-A2's S-video port has been removed. It support 1080i output over HDMI and component, but does not support the newer 1080p/24fps video format. See the Toshiba HD-A30 and HD-A35 for this feature.
