Well they employ 150 people full time, so there is at least a fair amount of work being done in Binghamton. ..But I wouldn't be at all surprised if processors, such as that in my integrated amp and those found in their AVR Pre-amps, are sourced over seas.
As for their claim that "we don't know how long our gear lasts b/c we've only been in business 60 years" ...well, that may be true for their retro-style tube and s/s amps which can easily be rebuilt, but I'm a bit more skeptical about this claim as it relates to those components with processors and firmware. ..It's hard to imagine that 20 years form now they'll be able to replace the digital volume control/ processor in my amp. ..Nonetheless, for the time being I enjoy it immensely and I'm glad knowing that it is at least partially built in an old mill town just a few hours from where I live.
