I think that some of you are missing the original point which is about Chinese products. Not products made by Chinese and supervised by western companies. Like EAW, JBL, Fane, Cellestion, Mackie.... They have their own factories doing their own products supervised buy their engineers. Those products have very strict QC.
But if we now take the rest few hundreds (if not thousands) of Chinese copy/paste companies, then the OP stands 99.99%.
As I have posted before China is on an evolutionary path that we (US) went through hundreds of years ago.
More recently I recall back when japan was the cheap factory for the west, and even the japanese rejected Japanese goods as inferior. Times change.
China is a very old country but their adventure in capitalism (actually a variant on capitalism) is only a decade or two old, really gaining traction after they got Hong Kong back from the UK (a 99 year lease that expired in 1997). It seem's they haven't embraced Hong kong's democratic principles as enthusiastically as capitalism. :-)
Tune it or don't play it.
