It's US companies who are to blame. Americans CHOSE to sell out Americans by firing them and going to a cost to the bottom mentality. You should be blaming western companies for selling out ti make 2 billion instead of 1.99 billion in profits than the Chinese guy trying to eat.
Stereophile covered the LM transformers in their review so if you can specifically point out how the specific transformers they designed and built suck fine. But lumping all Chinese made stuff as bad is blatant racism.
"But lumping all Chinese made stuff as bad is blatant racism. "
"Chinese" isn't a race. As for Stereophile, they haven't published an honest review in years.
Buy Chinese. Bury freedom.
So if the Chinese guy is living in America and is American Chinese - you're okay with the product - and if it is a white American guy who opens a plant in China and makes the product in China this is okay?
So it's what plot of land that product is made that equals quality products?
And I dunno - I am sure there are American cars just as horrible as the Chinese cars - only you get to have the privilege of paying 4 times the price for the American clunker.
And gee the Geely Panda got 5 stars in safety crash tests and is said to be a pretty excellent car.
I think a lot of Americans would like to be able to own this car for the $5,600 list price and take their chances of paying $15,000 for a Ford equivalent. They've been upgrading them in recent years to meet US standards so I doubt it will be very long before Geely and companies like them make it to US shores as the Hyundai Pony and the Honda Civic before them.
"I am sure there are American cars just as horrible as the Chinese cars "
You're sure of a lot of nonsensical things.

For fuck sake the world has been subjected to American economic rationalism for the past half century which has now destroyed itself, witness GFC / Wall street collapse.
China is simply a by-product of that !
TK remember the US administration in the 70's that blocked the import of licensed 'Fender' manufactured guitars from Japan because they were so much better in quality !
America have left the door ajar for decades regarding product quality & are now paying the price.
Finally the introduction of 'Total Quality Management' (TQM) was a recognition / response by the Reagan administration in the late 80's to address the decline of USA military & manufacturing.
You still too chicken to name 5 Japanese/American amplifiers that are better than the LM 518IA or 219IA for the same money or close money. Where is this grouping of superior amplifiers that use better steel (transformers)?
My $20,000 US car was in the shop 11 times in 18 months. I am sure there is a Chinese car that can do better and only be in the shop 10 times in 18 months.
The Ford Pinto - a prime example of American made safety. Chortle chortle.
