Is there a good, all around, review site for home theater?

    For my video games I go to IGN.com and gamespot.com.
    For my dvd reviews: dvdfile.com, thedigitalbits.com.
    For my movie reviews: rottentomatoes.com and link from there.
    For Home Theater Electronics: ????


    I feel like I can get very well informed on all those first areas on what I'm buying or seeing. Plus, after reading reviews I can go to the boards and refine my questions with other people.

    HOWEVER, I can not seem to get the low down on the Home Theater arena. There just seems too much to encompass, and so I feel I'm coming here with no background and just begging for "What's Good?"

    I'm trying to get surround sound finally, but I'm totally confused. The guys at the store all seem like they're trying to sell me just what they have in front of them, and I have no idea if it's a good deal or not.

    What's a quick and easy way to get informed, or at least get on the right track?

    A site I go to and so do other people is www.hometheaterhifi.com It's pretty technical some of the stuff over my head but the explain some the the stuff so you can understand, and their reviews are good especially the DVD shootout they did, that's definitely worth looking into. The reviews are better than S&V's I know that's not saying much but they actually tell stuff about the product (that sounds dumb but just go check it out).
