What are stages?
At Audition Audio, we tend to think of components and systems as stages. Doing this helps you as a consumer select the right components that make the most sense for your budget and needs.
Stage 1 – To call these systems entry level would be a disservice to this stage. All of the Audition Stage 1 components are hand selected by the Audition Audio expert staff to provide the best dollar to performance ratios available. They may not provide all features of other Stages, but will provide solid performance for years to come.
Stage 2 – If you want some cutting edge features and solid performance, this is the Stage for you. Stage 2 systems include many of the cutting edge features you demand at a reasonable cost.
