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.

Will the insane customers paying inflated prices for audio equipment continue to pay? It isn't the vendors fault.

My biggest issue when buying anything from China is the level of trust in their products. Simply put, are their parts being used genuine parts from the original manufacturer or just labeled as: Capacitors, resistors and transformers.

My amps are Chinese. My DAC is Chinese. My cables are Chinese, at least most of them. Most of my accessories (footers etc) also are. My Audiolab transport is British but made in China.


I'm "poor". There is no way I could afford ANYTHING half decent from western brands. But I own a fantastic sounding system.

China is now becoming the worlds super power, respectively the USA is becoming a third world country by design unless it is stopped. Yes many of  their products are very good for the price
