Where do you start?

1. By telling us how much you have to spend.
2. If you have any equipment to start with.
3. Saying what size room this is all going in.

Just to get ya started :)

Plan on having all the speakers you buy be the exact same kind and size if you want TRUE surround sound.

You can start by going to
http://www.audioreview.com - this site is good for seeing review of high end home audio, do your research.

http://www.ecoustics.com - this is another home audio review site more research

http://www.craigslist.com/about/cities.html - go there, pick your city, and look around. There are a lot of good deals in high-end audio under the electronics section the best thing is that it is local not like ebay

http://www.audiogon.com - this is a really good site for finding high end audio at discount prices

http://www.audioadvisor.com- If you must buy new, this is a good place to do it. They've been in business for some time now, and carry the hard to find , yet highly acclaimed brands that are not readily available in most cities. This is a really good site for hard to find gear.

Hope this helps. Overall don't go to your local high end audio shop and get lured by the 0% financing. You can go though to listen to some of the audio gear, and play with it see how it works,etc. and go with that information in mind and make a more educated decision, and use places like audiogon/ebay/craigslist to save yourself some serious dough.

Honestly though, read through the threads in this section(There really isn't that many), then answer the basics Jack set you up with. There are some prwtty knowledgeable people watching this section with great ideas. I am sure they can set you on your way to some eccentric project in no time :P
