i am chinese ,many foreigners come to my audio store

i am chinese ,and i run a audio store in my hometown, (changchun,northeastern china),many foreigners work here. Wink many of them are germen ,they often come to my store and buy some hifi staff, they say the very same thing if sold in their home , the price is much higher , sometimes 3~4 times ,so they like my store very much,they buy the hifi staff here and transport them to home ,and it is still very cheap.

the more interesting things is that what they bought are always made in germany , made in england ,haha,cross half of the earth,here they are possible to buy the most expensive ones,and they do

Re: i am chinese ,many foreigners come to my audio store

You miss one crucial point and that is that although the make is the same, the separates are tuned differently for each country. Brits are well known for being very fussy about hi fi. Possibly the fussiest around which is why a lot of hi fi separates are re tuned for the british market so that it is suitable for the british ear. You may laugh at the price difference but the stuff you listen to sounds poor compared to what we listen to.

Re: i am chinese ,many foreigners come to my audio store

you mean the products which made for chinese market are sound rubbish?!  the point goes to the extreme,maybe the manufacturer may tune their products before they sell them to chinse market,that is possible,but you can not say the hifi in china is sound rubbish ,and all of you are "golden ear" ,  this is really extreme and sounds harsh to my ear.

i did not find any kind exploitation from this ,i do not mean that, 20years before some chinese may think in this way , but now nobody will do that,that is only your belief

Every hi fi manufacturer around the world recognises that the british are exceptionally fussy when it comes to hi fi and demand a higher standard that the rest of the world, even including the U.S.

The hi fi you sell in china will not be tuned to the same level as the same stuff available in the U.K. No , we do not have a "golden ear" but we do have better sounding hi fi than that available in China. That is a fact.

it maybe true, i have never been to uk,and it is not possible to investigate it,but it is not a matter of who is more superior than the others ,right? in china,there are many foreign hifi brands here, the impression of english sound for me is warm,sweet,very pleasant to ear.i once own a pair of AE200 ,not bad

I never been to China and for those who say they build a rubbish hifi then you do know very little my friend.

Jolida, Shanling and Dussun are to name but a few of a classy, highly rated hifi brands.

The CD-T300 I heard sounded as good as any I ever demo before.
and the lead bit is below the belt Mr.P.

Welcome to the fourm OldDiamond. Always good to get another countries perspective on things. Changchun looks like a pretty big city (on Google maps at least!)

changchun is the capital city of jilin province,hehe,middle size city among the province capital cities. yes, as far as i know ,some our brands have their overseas market, these are the brands that you hear of, but there are also some brands that dont sell overseas, their quality are equally good. some of these even dont have a english name 

 my cd player is jolida jd100, amplifier is G&W , speaker is master audio,  have you heard of these before?

Yes, welcome aboard olddiamond, and good to hear the way you see the hi-fi market. Having visited China a few times I have been constantly amazed at the range of equipment available in some shops - and the prices!

Ignore some of the strange remarks and stereotypical generalisations some people post here - it's a combination of British sense of humour, some 'lost in translation' - how good are they at typing in Chinese languages?!!- and some old prejudices.

Hope you continue to enjoy the forums.

Re: i am chinese ,many foreigners come to my audio store

thank you for your support. i am hifi lover and i am also an english lover , i studied english for sometime when i was in college , language is just a tool , the more important thing is western culture , and the music and the hifi world are also  part of the culture.

in my home , hifi equipments from a lot of countries are  sold here , every conutry's sound has their own speacial characteristics and followers. i dont know the situation of uk.

forum is just a place for free talk , that's the same in china, i am very glad to hear your views , wonderful experience
