How to choose, set up, and enjoy the latest high-technology audio systems are all given expert insight in this indispensable guide for stereo shoppers. Consumers today often use home-audio systems for both stereo music and surround-sound music, they buy multichannel systems instead of two-channel stereo systems, they may have HDTV and flat-panel televisions, and they have largely moved to in-wall and on-wall loudspeakers rather than floorstanding units. Questions relating to all of these changes are covered in a novice-friendly way, as well as Super Audio CD, DVD-Audio formats, and all of the latest surround-sound formats for home theater. The emphasis is not only on solving shopping dilemmas, but also on getting great sound from an audio system.

Don't spend too much. At some point your ears won't be able to tell the difference (but you'll get better with time). Room treatment and proper set up are important (and free). A "bad" room and speaker placement can ruin a great sound system. Good sound can be pretty cheap but you have to do some research. Teach yourself to appreciate sound.
