    Welcome to the forum.

    The Hegel 590, especially, is awesome.

    I only care if the labeling supports the full practice so I can make a decision on what I want to do.

    And it’s important to understand what the label means. Products can assume identities of the originating country even if work was done in part overseas and shipped to the originating country for final assembly.

    I've softened a lot on my stance with high-end audio products made in China. There are companies that take what are essentially Chinese products, designed (if you can call it that) and made by Chinese owned / run factories, and slap their own badge on it. Maybe they get to specify the colors and other superficial aspects, but it's pretty obvious to see through. These are generally very bad products.

    Then there are companies that really design their own quality products, and work much more closely with Chinese factories to outsource their production and ensure quality. These can be excellent.

    I love Audioquest cables, even though their main assembly is done in China. Can't fault them; they're great cables. But the counterfeiting issue is indeed a side-effect of this. By all accounts companies like Hegel and Prima Luna also do a great job ensuring a quality product.
