DVD/receiver is dying; it's finally time to get up to speed on replacement options
The region-free dvd/speaker/receiver combo I bought while living overseas (8 years ago?) is finally gasping its last few breaths. That's fine, it is past time to go to Blu-ray anyway. The problem is, I don't keep up with AV tech.
Now, I like tech in general, but I scratch that itch more than enough at work to not want to fiddle with it all weekend or stay up to speed on the latest firmware updates. I have a WoW addiction to fill all of my spare time with, after all. I'm perfectly capable of *getting* up to speed long enough to make a reasonably smart purchase, and that's where you come in, dear reader...
What are the current, quality sites to visit for getting up to speed on a) blu-ray players and b) receiver/speaker packages? I'm looking for places that you've bookmarked because the signal-to-noise ratio is so good that you know you'll be back for your next upgrade/project anyway.
