I have to agree with Sam Tellig on the "Made in China" thing. If it wasn't for the horrendous experience I had with Harmon Kardon's Chinese made receivers or Infinity's speakers I would never have upgraded to products like Vandersteen speakers or B&K amps which, obviously, are made in the U.S.A. So maybe the corner cutting communist audio is good for the high end. I will most likely never (willfully) buy anything audio that says "Made in China" again, which is pretty much the entirety of the mass market. Jeeze even "Made in Japan" isn't so bad anymore. At least they're not creating the kind of enviromental disasters in the name of economic world domination that communist china is. Although it's becoming harder and harder to do so I urge everyone out there to boycott products with the "Made in China" label, no matter how great they may at first seem to be.
