A dozen new Blue Note reissues coming from Music Matters Jazz.
in 2017, he announced that there would be no new titles, but he still had substantial stock to sell through, particularly of some of the 45s. The way he tells it in the announcement is that the SRX vinyl is what brought him back. I know Ron, and I...

I don't think that being curious about the products made local to you is necessarily nationalistic.  
Help me to choose turntable below 1600$.
Well, this won't make your choice any easier: New VPI Cliffwood table at $900. (and the Scout Jr. is being blown out at $1299 most places as it's discontinued). http://americanmadeaudio.com/2017/06/30/vpi-launches-entry-level-cliffwood-turntable-a...

Would owning Hoover Dam improve the midrange?
One man spends $40K on a power upgrade and all audiophiles are insane. Thousands of men drive around in $100K-300K autos and nobody bats an eye. I wonder if car fans could pass a Point A-Point B test?

@danielinvermont  Haven't forgotten Wyred 5 Sound - still have a number of companies to add, there are certainly more than most people, including myself, expected.

Thanks. I can't believe how much I'm learning. I had a one-page list of companies on my music blog, but have doubled the number of companies who are listed since the full site became live.  
What has your audiophile experience taught you about yourself?
That the upgrade path is a Penrose staircase. http://stuffpoint.com/optical-illusions/image/272013-optical-illusions-infinite-staircase.jpg

@stuartk  Thanks Stuart - Free listings are pretty basic (you can imagine how much time it takes to create 150 listings. Premium listings include things like photos, fuller descriptions, and a link. I was sure to include enough information so that...

@mitch2  - Thanks for the reply. I wrote a long thoughtful answere which for some reason didn't post here. Here's a short version. Based on my assumptions Merrill (and most other companies listed) fall under "Assembled in USA." No one should hold ...

@mitch2   @danielinvermont  - I have about 35 companies that people have suggested or who have written in requesting a listing. I will do a basic online review to evaluate whether it seems likely that their products are made or assembled in the US...

@geoffkait  Oppo Digital is somehow slightly separate. I'm guessing that they use the name to market here, and they use Oppo Electronics to manufacture, but they are a US-owned company, at least in part? They do design and market here, and I'm a p...

@acastos Which Polk products are assembled in the USA? @geoffkait  Are any Oppo products assembled in the USA? I've been to their HQ in northern California, and it looked like design and marketing only. They don't claim to make anything here.
