    First: Klipsch bought Mondial Designs (Aragon/Acurus).

    Second: Denon and Marantz.

    Third: this one.

    I would hope that they only did it to *add* Adcom's line up to KEF's. KEF makes great speakers (I'm not as familar with Celestion); so maybe they wanted to get into the component side too.

    Wow, I didn't know that Adcom was Japanese. I thought they were an American company. (Or maybe they started out that way?)

    Adcom is an American company, they are based in NJ. I think the last paragraph in the link is a little confusing. It does almost say that Adcom is Japanese but after rereading it is just not clearly written.

    Adcom hadn't been going anywhere for a long time. They were caught in a no-mans-land between receivers and real high end equipment. Chains like Tweeter dropped them a while ago. The only separates Tweeter carries now is B&K.

    Adcom tended to be a day late and a dollar short too often.

    Business consolidation is going at quite a pace. Nothing like monopolies to make more money.
