is still living in an environment that is similar to the early 50's from an economic point of view. I can have 200 speaker cabinets made with Russian baltic birch; cut, assembled, stained and varnished, stuffed with drivers made from Europe and shipped to the USA for 60% of the cost that my local cabinet shop would charge for the cabinet assembly and finishing alone. The technology helps too - one chip receivers - vs. decrete components with all the mfg cost and QC required. So when it comes to chinese imports we really can go "Back to the future".
