John,

You missed the most important audio/video term.

Upgrade-itis = Uncontrollable desire to upgrade your audio/video equipment even though your current equipment is more than adequate to meet your needs. According to Center for Disease Control, there is absolutely no cure for this virus. It is a recurring virus and highly contagious.

You missed "transients." An oft used audiophile term to describe something of which I have no idea. Come to think of it, I'm no sure I want to know.

Can anyone point me towards a guide that includes explanation of terms specifically used in surround mixing? Like 'bed', 'stem' etc.
