    A hidden word

    In Golosa book 1 unit 2 Давайте послушаем 2-36 there are one or two words that I can't understand.
    The speaker says:
    Фирма "Техника XXI-го века" приглашает жителей и гостей нашего города посетить магазин-салoн "Технохобби" постоянная продажа широком ассортининтия (that's what I hear) видео и аудио и компютерная техника.
    However "a wide assortment" makes sense in this phrase, just the word "ассортимент" is in my dictionary. The doubt in these words introduces as a consequence a doubt on the case of "компютерная техника". Can you help me? Thanks.

    I'm not sure I understood you question, but I'm 100% sure they said "в широком ассортименте" ("ассортининтия" doesn't exist, but I see how you could hear it).

    It's a standard phrase and it's used VERY often in ads and such, sometimes without "широкий" - for example "Окна и двери в ассортименте" (meaning that there's a (wide) variety of the said items at the store).
