How will the audio industry change in the near future?
I'm hoping I can open this can of worms in a way that won't raise anybody's hackles, but it is partly about politics, so I'll try to tread lightly. With our incoming administration proposing to abandon our existing trade deals, especially with China, I was thinking that this would have a profound effect on the audio industry, as so many major companies have moved their manufacturing there. What happens if tariffs are imposed on these companies? How will these companies react? And how steeply will prices have to rise? Just some food for thought.
