Over the years I've read so many threads/posts where a person has just purchsed based on reviews alone and NOT considered the influence or impact  room size/acoustics can have on the end sound.

I appreciate not everyone can audition. Likewise, I also acknowledge that room acoustics, like anything hi-fi, isn't an exact science. Maybe a few pointers could alleviate any 'pre-purchase' anxieties. Perhaps a few 'dos' and 'don'ts' before parting with hard-earned money.

If this is listed somewhere I apologise.

Agreed. I find many useful bits of advice scattered over the site from Googling etc, but to have it in one accessible place would be excellent

How about a reference section with links to the 'How To...' videos and blogs and such?

Sounds like something you get after a heavy Saturday night on the beer.
