Ideal speaker stands?
I would have to say ideal stand height depends on the size of the speaker. You want to have the tweeter at ear level when seated. As stated above 24" is a pretty common size. I have been using Atacoma 24 SE stands. I think they are a steal as far ... 
Progressive DVD players?
Sorry about that I have REINVISTAGATED and found that SWAMPWALKER is right you only need 420p to get the benifits of progressive scan. But then again why not just go for the HD set so you can get that UNBELIEVABLE picture! Thanks SWAMP! 
Progressive DVD players?

i have the soliloquy 5.0 in rosewood and I love them. I had a pair of B&W cdm1 and I got rid of them for the solils. The bottom end is tight but, it is not the deepest after all it is monitor and it is a rather small cabinent. The mids are sup... 
Better B&W Matrix or Nautilus?
The matrix bracing system has been carried over to the Nautilus line. The major improvements in the Nautilus series is the cabinent design and the tweeters. I have heard the N 801m 802, and 805 and was impressed with them all. However the original...

True Bookshelf speakers--which best?!
Soliloquy 5.0. Hands down a great speaker. Price considered or not. They have a huge soundstage for their size and their build quality is exceptional. I have owned B&W dm 602 and cdm1 both of which I was very fond of. The Soliloquy's in my opi... 
I had B&W dm 602 and CDM1, GO with SOLILOQUY 5.0 they can't be beat for the price.
