Do you really price match?
We will match any e-Commerce (Online store) Authorized USA Dealer's advertised price. Please call us toll free (877) 370-1972 and alert us to where you found the product cheaper. We will verify, and if the site is an Authorized US Dealer- we will match their price. However, if the price is below the manufacturer Minimum Advertised Price (MAP)- we will have to get authorization to match the price. We will not violate our signed agreements that we have with our vendors.
What about price matching from an auction site?
We do not price match any auction or "grey market" site.
Be advised, any purchases from an auction or unauthorized (grey market) websites can lead to future issues in regards to warranty or support. Most manufacturers will not honor any claims or warranty from these type of sales. Spend your money wisely by purchasing from an Authorized Dealer. In a lot of cases, saving a little bit of money can cost you more after the sale is completed.
We offer a 30 Day Return Policy should you choose to return a product for any reason.
Since 1972 Sound Approach has backed all items that we sell. If the product you have purchased is not right for you, let us know. We strive to find the right product for your unique situation. We will work with you to find a sound solution and recommend what product will resolve your issue. That being said, we will credit, refund, or exchange any product you purchase within 30 days of your purchase.
Certain products, may be returned, but are subject to a restocking fee of 20%. Please contact us to determine, before ordering, if the item will fall into this category. Usually it is for the high-end electronics & audiophile-grade speakers. We want to make sure that we match you with the correct product, so please call and speak to any of our technical experts prior to ordering.
Four Important Conditions:
1. We need to get the original box, manuals, and any materials that came with the product for you to receive a full refund- with no re-stocking charges. The item/product must still be in like-new condition.
2. If the item had Free Shipping and you are returning a non-defective product, the original shipping cost will be deducted from the total that will be refunded back.
3. Special Ordered items are not returnable (see below).
4. Once an RMA is issued- it is valid for 10 business days. After 10 days, the RMA is canceled and returns will not be accepted.
Shipping and handling charges cannot be reimbursed unless it is our mistake. Yes, we can make mistakes – not often, but it can happen.

High Resolution Technologies - Stage System
The Stage Speaker System is the companion to Stage Control Center, and together they form a complete audio system of extraordinary fidelity. The design of the Stage Speaker System started as a blank canvas. Every element of every aspect of the Speaker System was designed and tooled from the ground up. Not being tied to components designed for other applications and free to explore each and every element, this freedom allowed HRT to develop a Speaker System that exceeds what has previously been possible. Each component has been optimized for it’s task, and the overall goal of vanishing low distortion has been the driving motivation for each decision. Extensive use of injection-molded structures have made possible shapes that would otherwise be impossible. Details such as frames for the woofers, acoustical chamber for the tweeter, internal bulkhead bracing, unified baffle, and the enclosure itself all become a reality by the three dimensional freedom molded structures allow. Not to be out done by the structural elements, the magnetic design of the Stage Speaker System drivers is the finest possible. Instead of the more common over-hung voice coil approach, both the woofer and tweeter used in the Stage Speaker System use under-hung voice coils, and include modulation reducing magnetic shorting rings. With this design, the drivers’ voice coils are always in a very linear part of the motor assembly, even under heavy-signal conditions. Even the voice coil impedance is unique, allowing for a parallel-connected trio of woofers made possible by their atypically high impedance. This configuration allows for the best low frequency damping when paired with the dedicated electronics of the Stage Control Center. When combined with the unique shape of the enclosure and its distributed woofer array, the Stage Speaker system is beautifully balanced for both near field and free space listening.
The HRT Stage Control Center is the companion to Stage Speaker System and together, they form a complete audio system of extraordinary fidelity. Conceived as a pairing, Stage will satisfy any level of expectation. The combined system is focused on achieving astonishingly low levels of distortion along with perfect tonality - all at a price point that has never before been achieved. Stage Control Center includes the capabilities of an asynchronous USB DAC, an analogue preamplifier, and a linear analogue power amplifier. Supplied in speaker matching black or white finish; the Control Center was designed as an updatable platform with field-replaceable modules, accommodating different applications and connectivity as they become available. Stage's inputs include both an asynchronous USB interface and a pure analogue path allowing Stage to be used be used with a large variety of signal sources, while providing each type with an optimized signal path. With analogue signal processing, which perfectly complements the requirements of the Stage Speaker System, the low-frequency response is extended, along with distortion being drastically reduced. Designed with the goal of absolute purity as the highest criteria, the Control Center utilizes the most well regarded technologies, including asynchronous transfer protocol for the digital signal path, digitally controlled analogue attenuation, analog domain signal processing, Class AB analogue power amplification, and linear power supplies, all contained in a compact package with a simple and intuitive user interface, controlled by simple front panel buttons or the included compact remote control.
Together, these elements make Stage a superb audio system for desktop, gaming, home audio/video systems, professional audio mixing, mastering, and commercial installations. HRT’s exacting use of the most appropriate and modern materials, the highest performance components, and the most advanced manufacturing technologies combine with absolute focus on sonic fidelity to complete Stage – a unique and unrivaled fully modern and compact audio system solution that is here to be enjoyed by all. With it’s un-colored tonal balance, remarkable dynamic response, eye-popping 3-D spatial presentation, and low frequency capabilities that will exceed all expectations for such small speakers, the Stage Speaker System is capable of playing all types of music and sound tracks with stunning realism. We invite you to experience Stage for yourself; prepare to have your expectations exceeded!
