As I have joined this forum, I really like how people interact and giving eachother advice. Also I noticed that most hifi people are talking about is made in the UK. Now, I am a real fan of British hifi, but for example the country I am from ( Holland )they also make excellent stuff. Some names: Siltech, Van Medevoort, Audiostatic, Van den Hul, Karma etc. etc. And of course the same goes for German and American hifi . Is it because these brands are not well enough supported on UK grounds, or is there another reason?
