what happened to usa cd players ?????

i started a post on what happened to the qulaity of cd players.

then i realized what happened to america made cd players ?

beside wadia and muse ( and the new krelll sacd ) i dont think one can find a usa made cd player for less than $3k-$4k...

what are your thoughts on this ?

what happened ??????
has th us manufactures concentrated on dac's and forgot the all in one ?

do you think it is possible for a usa company to produce a $1500 to $$2500 player ?
