Poor reginaldo, all he wants is a concrete report on the quality of China built Krells.
Observe the signature in its natural habitat.
I am becoming more convinced by the day the hi-fi fraternity is largely made up of grumpy, nit picking old men with nothing better to do than to argue the toss about pretty much anything. Hilarious really...

Apparently that is all he actually wanted to know, but he asked the wrong original question to find out, even with the rather bizarre sub-plot arguments that developed. His OP simply asked about build quailty between UK and China amps (although odd to ask that when Krell are nominally a US brand), and I actually think he got a perfectly good answer to that myself.

You know what makes no sense to me? You say ~15,000 homicides ea year in the US, where are all these murderes put? Could there be enough prisions and funding? I know for a fact that it cost ~1 million dollars to keep a person in jail for a life sentence (30-years) and it costs upwards of 100 million dollars to build a prision to house around 250
I would have thought its more to do with the availability of firearms in the US..............

Some people need to be shot. But then again perhaps they're not worth the cost of the bullet.

Chinese made has become quite good. When Japan first started producing a lot of it was mediocre. Now they are the best engineers in the world. The Chinese worship the Japanese. This makes their objective rather very clear. Pay no attention to these middle class EDITEDs with nothing but complaint and a bias towards name brand only.

You got that right Supreme (Court?)!
As for the OP: I'd have expected anything bearing the Krell name to have something not far off bombproof build. Not something I'd have thought they'd give up on too readily.

ARE YOU STILL FEELING GREASY?
The Chinese worship the Japanese.
Could've fooled me.
It's a complicated relationship, but in terms of respect for Japanese engineering/technology, you are probably right. Unless I'm concerned about ensuring my money goes to or stays within a certain country, I have no qualms about purchasing Chinese manufactured goods. Fresh produce and certain other food products I still try to avoid.
I speak from real world observations, self-formed opinions (I am a man of logic) Forget about URLs to information written by Killer Joe doing 20 to life in long bay jail for all I know.

There's probably a lot of Germans (and others) who would disagree with you.
My opinion is that the Chinese are very good at copying & stealing the ideas of others. Unlike you, I don't hold out my opinions as incontrovertible fact.
