I would agree that a variety of reviews from several people is best. Before I bought my tekton speakers I spent three months looking at every review of speakers I could find. From pro's to blog's to epinions to forums. What I like about Home Theater reviews is their format. They tell you what components are used, pro's and con's, don't spend half the review with data measurements, and tell you how the item compares to others in its price range.
I know by reading all of Andrew's reviews that four stars means its a good product but to him has some weak areas ( SVS towers with highs), four and a half very strong and five stars really is reserved for items he would buy and use in his own home. Its not like he is reviewing Bose or Radio Shack speakers. I don't agree with everything he says but what I also like is that he reviews cheap pioneer speakers up to expensive stuff.
What I will be looking for in his review is how the pendaragon subs compare to the svs 13 he was gushing about. Do 1200 pair of subs come close to matching one 1600 svs. Their will always be pressure on the reviewers to give positive feedback. If they give a lot of 3 out of 5 star reviews then no one will be sending products in for review.
Alls I really know is I took a leap of faith and bought tekton based a lot on what Andrew said and I have never been happier with an electronic purchase. I guess that makes me a fanboy.
