Fan noise from Toshiba HD-XA2?

I managed to find and purchase a demo XA2 and looking forward to trying it as soon as I get an HDMI cable in the mail. But one thing that's puzzling me is that the rear fan noise is a bit louder than what I'm used to hearing from an A/V device. It's not a whining or clicking noise, just a normal fan sound. For those of you that have owned an XA2, is it normal to hear the fan quite a bit when the unit is idle with no disc?
I powered mine up this morning to check it out, I do appreciate a low level fan noise when on, but it has never been noticeable at usual movie listening levels.
Ok, thanks for checking Kennyt.
I've never noticed any noise while watching a movie on mine.
My HD-A35 is also quite noisy.
I think it is an internal hard drive.
Remember: HD players are more computer than DVD player.
My A3 also has a fan and I can hear it from miles away. Ok, maybe not that loud, but I definitely can hear it from 5' away but then I do think I have good hearing otherwise I would not be an audiophile. Not a concern for movie though.
Hey I know the Best Buy's, and the likes, have been dumping these Tosh's at like $99-$127 or whatever. Anyone know if any of the disco'd models pass Dolby-HD or DTS-Master from the HDMI 1.3 out? - or do they any even process HD Digital internally, let alone pass it through a digital out?
I saw them for $49 at Wal-Mart yesterday.
Love the picture, but I've decided to return the HD-XA2 because the fan sounds very loud on this demo unit, almost like AC on medium blast in the car. Maybe something is wrong with the unit, or that's just how it normally sounds; anyhow it's very distracting when watching a movie at low volume or during quiet scenes, much much louder than my Optoma projector fan.
Rxlarry....go back and get that XA2 right this minute!! Or, if you haven't already returned it....leave it right where it is. The picture you will get on any other upscaling dvd player will not measure up to the XA2. I suggest you make yourself a plexiglass box cover or something to minimize the won't find a better picture for standard def dvd's anywhere.
Just purchased a two-bay equipment rack from Guitar Center.
This MDF box has room for two full size (19" wide)components.
My Toshiba A35 fits in nicely.
I bought a 3.5" X 19" metal "fill strip" to cover the top slot and laid a 1" dense foam rubber mat on top of the player.
This prevents most noise from exiting the front.
I'm planning to get some more foam to insulate the inside but for now have stuffed a pillow in the back.
This solution has cost over $130.
So far, it's about 80% effective (damn that player is loud!)
