It's bad enough its made in China but it's unreliable JUNK! I've purchased a T 785 surrond sound that lasted about less than 2 years. A Master Series M3 Dual Mono Integrated Amplifier that shut down because I played it too loud. Took two months to fix but still plays good now(about 4 years). Purchased a Master Series NAD M5 CD SACD Player and have had nothing but problems. Anyway I still have my Luxman 450 thats been plugged in for over 30 years and which just recently started making noise in the left channel.
