I have several speakers (i.e. Emotiva, AudioEngine, M-Audio, Martin Logan) that are proudly made in the PRC. Their fit & finish was as good or exceeded what I experienced from the Energy Veritas. I take no issue with products made in China that are made well. It can be done. I worked there for seven years at a manufacturing facility and know first hand it can be done. That is why given the reputation Energy has/had I expected better. Especially for what ostensibly was a flagship line. Maybe my standards are too high, but I don't believe that is the case. I believe my Veritas were simply substandard workmanship.
