Greatest Bits

AudioStream's Greatest Bits is our version of Recommended Components. This list is culled from every piece of gear that we've reviewed each year and represents those components that stand apart in their ability to deliver a musically satisfying experience.

This list is divided into Classes (A-C) which represent levels of performance where components in Class A will outperform components in Class B and so on. To get an idea of how components within a class compare to each other, we recommend reading their associated reviews to get a detailed description of their sonic characteristics. That said, we believe that any product included on this list will offer a degree of performance that convincingly conveys the musical message.
