Will China become the poor man’s dealer for high end audio?

With the insane prices now being asked for audio equipment from manufacturers around the globe is china going to fill in the gap between the haves and have-nots.? We are already seeing some signs of this with manufacturers like Jays Audio and Denafrips offering product-performance prices below global market value. The only thing I see holding them back is they will always be one leg behind the rest of the world since they copy most of the technology they use and world wide acceptance.


this thread was destined to be a dumpster fire from the get go

let's just enjoy the music and be thankful for lots of choices for excellent gear from all over the world, ok?


Sometimes we must establish simple truths..

Do not confuse reality awakening with quarrel...

Some seems to think that building an amplifier of the highest quality is impossible for Asian savage...

It is comical... Thats all... And pathetic...

And imagine i was not here myself... Who will had restablish truth over chauvinism ? It seems that i am alone ... I read many poster claiming non sense... not much saying simple facts with REFERENCES as i did...

If someone dont say other non sense i will mute myself ...

And you are right...

Good gear is created all over the world...

China included...

I am extremely surprised as I would expect anyone interested in high quality equipment and with "50 years of experience" to be familiar with Fang from Stereo Knight, even though not a lot are sold in the US. Fang went on to form his own company called AM. US audiophiles are very insular.
Here are some comments from the British distributor, Ian Borthwick:


1) They look incredible and the build is up there with the best
2) Even cold and not run in they are easily the best amplifies I have heard.
3) The midrange is sublime and human voice effortless and so real.
4) The bass is effortless and incredibly articulate.
5) These will obviously improve as they get played in. Awesome.
6) No noise whatsoever. No hiss, no hum, no farting noises. Fang really has excelled himself. In a different league to Stereo Knight.
7) Inky silent background due to incredible noise floor.Cons.
1) Bloody heavy but look stunning.

@laoman Like @ghdprentice I’ve been an audiophile for a loooong time and follow the industry pretty closely and likewise have never heard of Fang, Stereo Knight, or AM. Further, this seems like marketing spam. Last, calling US audiophiles “very insular” is insulting, condescending, and just flat-out wrong.  Period, full stop.  Take your completely unfounded comments and just go away.  Please. 

China's biggest problem now is demographic collapse - more elderly than they know what to do with. Not enough young people being born. It is a train wreck.
