If I have a bias, it's mainly because I do not like the thought of my audio gear made by way of exploitation of any kind, and I do like the thought of it made with a lot of "spirit" behind it.
That's interesting. I was reading about the US soccer team yesterday, and US midfielder Landon Donovan was quoted as saying something like, "We may not have the technical skill of some of the other teams, but we've got American spirit, and that goes a long way."
And I wondered: Is there still such a thing as American spirit, and, if so, what is it exactly?
What audio components best embody "American spirit," and how?
