Honestly, they control their quality only to the extent that their OEM clients make them.  


Exactly.

My friend Peter who works in China told me last week that because salaries are rising in China, soon it will no longer be the place to have things made cheaply.  That "honor" will soon fall upon "lesser" countries.

Keith, I was making a comparison between, say, SE mics, and Apple.  SE can make things as shitty as they want.  The stuff that comes from Apple has to meet a certain standard.  Apple also has work practice standards for any factory that builds for them.

Excellent point, JJ. -An example which I'd overlooked, in fact.

I suppose that Apple brings sufficient 'muscle' to prevent the back-door problems, also.

Hey Kieth,

any parts of a ssl made in China?  Just curious!

Thanks

Some sub assemblies; on stuff like the Alpha-link etc.

But mainly, no... -which explains the high prices, of course!  Very Happy

I agree.  I think that the Chinese could build something at any quality level which was required, as long as they were paid accordingly.  People are going there to get cheap production, so that they can sell U47 wannabes cheaply here.

Now, whether the chinese have the ability in their engineering population to advance the state of the art, I don't know.  Just from reading about it, SE electronics looks like it might be trying that.

I'm not sure how I feel about sending someone something for the sole purpose of stealing intellectual property...

Am I reading this incorrectly?

I am sure some of their engineers are able to advance the state of the art; they just don't have any motivation to do it.

Yet.

why wouldnt they have any motivation to do that? the domestic market is a different market then what they sell to us, ..they can and are producing state of the art "products" , we just dont see it cause the export is simply build by the lowest bidder
