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 http://www.amazon.com/Atlantic-Technology-2200C-BLK-Speakers......

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.
