I'm a plumber Downunder and all the time get asked to install stuff made in China. It looks the same, works the same but most of the time it's junk. Quality control just does not exist. And when my clients try and get their money back, well pigs might fly. Allways remember with most things in life, you get what you pay for.

It's more like: "with most things in life you get less than what you paid for"

That's what they said about Japanese-made goods in he early postwar years.

Japanese cameras had to be "junk".

Have you looked at Chinese high-end audio stuff lately?
