Great. Now I won't sleep tonight, and I've got to keep my back to the wall at all times. Frickin' Ken and his delayed stabbitys.

Very good interview. One of the things that Ian might stress is that for many North Americans, the fact that Axiom's manufacturing takes place here is of importance. Although my 2 channel audio is from the UK (Quad and Audiolab) my stereo speakers (Axiom) are Canadian and my entire surround sound system is Canadian (Axiom and Anthem). In three to four years, my 2 channel electronics will be Canadian as I transition to Bryston.

in a few thousand years, they will say in advertising
"buy from your local planet".

Certainly was a consideration for me. I always try to buy local, then Canadian, then move outwards.

I would agree and I tend to lose my patience when the so-called "experts" on the web make reference to the fact that when compared to other on-line speaker companies such as Aperion(who I have no issue with and have good equipment), conveniently forget that ALL of Aperions speakers, among several other brands, are manufactured in China, hence, the price advantage, and other than their top of the line models, even B&W has everything else manufactured in the Far East.

It always returns to the same concept, you want to keep the jobs here where people are paid a decent wage, be prepared to pay the price otherwise we all know the alternative and that alternative is what makes Walmart such a giant corporation.
