    I wonder how many people around the world have legally changed their last name to 'British' for this reason. :)

    Interesting insight, no offense taken.

    That's why I established the criteria of "ownership", otherwise it would be really confusing. The same question could be asked from a "manufacturing country" perspective.

    However, I believe ownership is the first step towards a company losing some of its identity. KRELL is not even the shadow of the great company it once was since Dan D'Agostino was kicked out, for example. I wonder how much of Naim's character remain after Julian Vereker's passing.

    In this globalized economy we live in, I agree that most of the components that make up a hi-fi product will be sourced everywhere.
