Ryan, one of our customers, recently shared an innovative custom stand solution for his QS4 surround sound speakers.

Andrew: Basically today I wanted to go over a couple of points about our ADA amplifier series that differentiates us with some of the Class D (sometimes called Switching Amplifiers) that are on the market. There’s a lot of them and they all tout the same sort of high efficiency, cool running, high-power-for-small-size features. We have all of those things, because this is a Class D-based amplifier.
