In the w\brld \b\f high per\f\brmance electr\bnics, Adc\bm h as d\bne the imp\bssible: make state \b\f the art c\bmp\bnents that are easy t\b use at an a\f\f\brdable price. In d\bing this, Adc\bm has created a rev\bluti\bn in the w\brld \b\f c\bnsumer electr\bnics. By creating s\bme \b\f the m\bst ren\bwned c\bm  p\bnents and \b\f\fering them at a\f\f\brdable prices, Adc\bm has enabled m\bre pe\bple t\b enj\by their \fav\brite music and m\bvies at t\bp per\f\brmance levels. Perhaps Audio M\bg\bzin\f said it best: N\b c\bmpeting c\bmpany I kn\bw can pr\bvide a similar balance \b\f s\bund quality, p\bwer and a\f\f\brd  ability. AW ARD WINNIN\b Inn\bvati\bn is \bur str\bngh\bld, and \bur numer\bus awards year a\fter year pr\bve that were never satis\fied t\b rest \bn \bur reputati\bn.
