ADCOM started in the 70s. Our first offering wasn’t amplifiers but phono cartridges. They were no ordinary cartridges; however, they were extraordinarily musical "moving coil" designs that extracted a lot of information from a record groove. These products were so successful that other companies asked us to begin making cartridges for them, too! And so, we became a manufacturer!
Early Electronics... ADCOM's first electronic product, the groundbreaking GFA-1 power amplifier, appeared in December 1979. It was substantially more powerful than most of its competition at 200 watts per channel and was one of the first "high current" designs available. . Again, it was an affordable and standout performer. Critical response was phenomenal and the GFA-1 became the "hot ticket" amplifier of its day, as did the successor GFA-1A.
"As is true of the finest of audio devices, one gets the feeling of "listening through" it back to the source itself."
The First "GF...System"
The GFA-1 and GFA-1A were followed by a new group of matching components: the GFA-2 power amplifier, the GFP-1 preamplifier, and the GFT-1 tuner. These were also unique products. The GFA-2 power amp boasted 100 watts per channel and used high-speed output transistors and dual power supplies. The GFP-1's low-noise design won a lot of praise from record lovers and the evolutionary GFP-1A added the convenience of ADCOM's innovative dual recording/listening source selectors.
ADCOM earned worldwide acclaim with the GFA-555 – a power stereo amplifier designed by Nelson Pass. It was an ADCOM milestone that became a classic step-up for budget amplifiers at that time. The GFA-555, introduced in March 1985, was a phenomenally successful product. It has a large, well-regulated power supply that helped develop very high output current. It offered a combination of high power, outstanding sonics, and rugged design.
"It is so clearly superior to past amplifiers in the low- to mid-priced range - not to mention most amplifiers costing two to three times its price - that I can unhesitatingly recommend it for even the most demanding high end system."
When the GTP-500 tuner/preamplifier appeared in 1986, it was a real breakthrough. ADCOM's innovative circuit design and strong benefit story literally created a whole new way to put together an audio system! The GTP-500 had convenience features like full remote control. But unlike other products, it used a special motorized volume control that minimized distortion. Power to the People! The GTP-500 brought a whole new range of power amplifiers, too. The GFA-535 (60 watts per channel) and the GFA-545 (100 watts) in addition to the GFA-555 at 200 watts per side. For many, this flexibility really meant "the end of the receiver" as it gave the consumer the ability to buy the exact amount of power needed without sacrificing sound quality or convenience.
By the early 1990's, integrated home theater systems had begun to replace large hi-fi systems in the home. But they didn't offer the same sound quality a good hi-fi system could. ADCOM's GTP-600 audio-video tuner/preamp and the matching GFA-6000 5-channel power amplifier changed that in a hurry. Introduced in 1994, the GTP-600 featured Dolby Pro Logic decoding, integrated video switching, and a surround processor with multiple delay settings. And it brought even complex audio-video systems under total control with a programmable remote that put everything in the palm of your hand.
Considering our history of success, we still keep up with the new generation products and try to make the under ADCOM engineering the best what we can deliver in affordable prices.
ADCOM designs are predominantly strong and promising. Factors considered in design process is quality material, practical usage, intricate details, unique style and sophisticated look. ADCOM has tied to carry out its legacy in design but keeping in mind the latest style. It can be viewed as vintage yet connected to the new age.
ADCOM collaborated with Jacob Jensen Design to create a magnificent, work of art, wireless speaker, LUNA. Its unique design makes LUNA perfectly in sync with your home décor. In ADCOM, we believe in delivering beautiful products along with outstanding sound.
