I could set up a wiki with almost no effort.
Would that do the trick?
I started a wiki to replace the ancient Audio Quality HOWTO
a long time ago, but I wasn't really happy with the wiki
way of doing things so i abandoned it, thinking "I'll make this
better later"... but, well, you know how later goes. :-\
you can browse and search it (but not add stuff) at:

a wiki wouldn't be as smooth as what you're describing
but it would at least provide a way that users could add comments
on various hardware. could have a page for each soundcard,
a page for each video card, etc. Adding pages is easy.
If a wiki would not do, let's figure out the requirements
and i could maybe throw something else together.
