Default I have a Toshiba HD-A35 brand new, sealed in box - how much could I get for it?

I purchased a Toshiba HD-A35 new from Crutchfield, I got one of their last ones. I have not opened it because I don't have an HD TV yet, it has been sitting sealed in the box. I want to keep it for when I do get an HD TV but I'm not sure when that will be and I kind of need the money.

I know this was a highly regarded and sought after model in the heyday of HDVD right up until its demise and I assume it still is as they stopped making hardware. How much could I get for it from someone with a lot of HDVD's that knows how good the unit is? I'm trying to find out if it's worth selling or if I should just keep it. Thanks!

They are going on Ebay for about $100-150. Those come with about 8 movies though.

I couldn't find any sales for unopened players but I agree, used players are selling for about $100. Demand is small, most of us owning a lot of HD DVDs have more than enough players and would only buy another if it was a great deal. I would guess a few hundred thousand people worldwide still have HD DVD players connected and several million players were manufactured, it is a buyer's market.

The Toshiba HD-XA2 and clones can be purchased used for under $200 and so can the LG BH200, those are the only HD DVD players I consider more desirable than the Toshiba HD-A35.

HD dvd's are selling cheap. NIce if you want to start a collection. They did make a ton of movies on HD format. But you need analof ports on your avr to get the hd audio.

I don't have an HD-A35 any longer but I am able to play all audio codecs used, DTS-HD MA, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus with both my Toshiba HD-XA2 and LG BH200 and if my memory is correct, I could do the same with the HD-A35. Unfortunately, DTS-HD MA and Dolby TrueHD were not used very often with HD DVD.

My memory is that the HD-A35 could decode Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Digital Plus and could bitstream DTS-HD MA, somebody still using the player might confirm or correct my memory.

From the web....
Quote:
Audiophiles rejoice! The A35 has HDMI pass-through audio: The audio signal can bypass the HD DVD player’s internal audio processor and feed directly into an A/V receiver. The HD-A35 can output 5.1 channel analog audio and, with HDMITM, High Bit Rate Audio (up to 7.1 channels). With a capable receiver, the lossless Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio standards are then decoded externally and audiophiles will be rewarded with the highest fidelity surround sound possible, adding a new dimension of enjoyment to the home theater experience. The HD-A35 also supports other surround sound audio standards including Dolby Digital Plus, DTS 5.1, and DTS HD (core only).
