Day after Christmas and everything from Santa was made in China. Man, are we sure we know what we are doing and feeding into? I don't think its hitting the gray matter and its a worry. I'm taking a stand and banning as much as I possibly can from this day forward. Its our demise if we don't get our business and buying habits in order. Its worse than ever. All the power to all nations but when it gets to a point that I can't even buy my children something made by the traditional countries I've been so familiar with... yikes! And my kids are pointing this out to me... its time to rethink and evaluate. Start asking all the manufacturers and dealers if it is made in China. Make it known that you are concerned. Everytime we support a company that uses Chinese labor, we force another company to do the same. The Chinese know this. And its killing us in so many ways. I would rather pay more for less and have quality and see me supporting my home than all this crap that is packaged with toxic plastics and made like junk. I'm just shaking my head. I fear for the pro audio industry. Manufacturers, please don't do it to us. Less and less working and building our passionate gear, all in the name to save a buck now and pay dearly later. WTH. I have banned most of Asia from accessing this site for many reasons. I don't care who I upset. I don't care if I loose ratings. Someone has to take a stand. I'm so tired of all the spam, trash email, bots and now seeing and tossing endless products the have "Made in China" into the trash. I'm have "Made in China" overload. I would like to ask the rest of our members who are from Europe if it is the same for you there? Is everything made in China where you are or is this more a North American problem?
