    From an ownership standpoint, with Bowers & Wilkins being American; Audiolab, Wharfedale and Quad being Chinese and Naim being French, what's left?

    My first thoughts are Linn, Rega and Harbeth. Well, some might say Linn is Scottish but...

    Thank God Naim aren’t “still and truly British” or I may have had to reconsider my whole audio amplification.

    Are Chord British owned? I believe they’re still made in Kent.

    Why, was it not very good when it was British?

    Tom60300 Yes, that's a pig.

    Ha! In this case, they'd be better off by selling the company to the Chinese.

    Reminds me of Bandor, after the founder DOReen BANce (Ted Jordan' ex-wife).
