Hey I am wondering if anyone has any links to guides or mb's that can explain me the basics of surround sound speakers. I am trying to purcahse a surround sound system atm but I have absolutely no idea what is important to know. I have been trying to read some posts here, but it is almost like another language.

Here are a few links that might help. The best thing to do is decide how much you want to spend. The type of speakers you will need ie. bookshelf, floorstander, micro -tiny speakers,in wall in ceiling. 5.1 , 6.1, or 7.1. The .1 is subwoofer and the 5 is mains, center, and 2 surrounds.

After you have decided all of the above you then will need to decide what kind of sound you are looking for. Speakers range from warm to neutral to bright as do receivers or amps. Warm to neutral you can listen to at louder levels for longer periods of time before you get fatigued or get a headache. Bright some consider as very detailed but most people cannot listen to them for long durations.
