However, I've been poking around for ones with specs similar to the one Boston Acoustics had spec'd for my CR6s and found one that might do.

It is from Atlantic Technology


Excellent speaker because of its adjustability. There’s a short video on it at

I was looking at my DVD player manual. It is not HD and it seems proud that it can upscale to 480p. Guess it's been a while since my mom gave me that. I then looked at the ~10 DVDs that I own. Not even my LoTR seem to be HD. The newest ones are 5.1 though. The others are recordings mostly pre-Dolby of any kind.

Your DVD’s native output is that of the DVD disc. It can’t play HD – only a Blu-ray player has that capability. That’s why I hammer on getting a good upconverting/upscaling amp: you will get HD from the discs you have (and from the VHS player).

If the DVD disc doesn’t specify Dolby 5.1 it is in Dolby 2.0. Once again, a better amp can take that and massage it to a higher codec using all your speakers. So it doesn’t mean to get HD you have to replace the present DVD player.
