    I am going on vacation to the beaches of South Carolina and I was looking for a good home theater book. I just bought "The Idiots Guide to Home Theater" to read while I'm drinking a Tom Collins on the beach, if anybody has any other suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!

    The Complete Guide to High-End Audio by Robert Harley has been recommended here in the past.

    Harley's book is fine if you want the conventional wisdom of audiophilia...too many blanket statements w/o evidence to back it up for me. Some useful tidbits though and a decent read.

    A good book to have is "DVD Demystified".
    Another standard reference in my library is "Home Theater for Everyone" by Robert Harley . About $21 at Amazon
    If you want to focus on your room learning about reflections, room modes, etc., "Sound Studio Construction on a Budget" by F. Alton Everest is quite good.
