It's in reference to knock offs of products, among other things. There have been lots of cases where the factory that makes product A for company XYZ will make product B for company ABC and the 2 products are pretty much identical other than the name stamped on the front panel - that doesn't happen by mistake. Land Rover is currently in the process of suing a Chinese company for making a knock-off of the Range Rover Evoque that looks pretty much identical and was launched on the same day. One could probably spend a number of days coming up with long lists of examples. The problem is largely that the Chinese government has no respect for things like copyrights.

in the context of electronics..and even bringing to to the level of this thread..do you know of any counterfeit cases where D&M( or even their the other Asian A/V manufacturers who do 99% of their manufacturing there) is involved?
I dont know the specifics you mention of the Range Rover situation...though in the context of the current discussion...was Range Rover manufacturing cars there?

While I understand your point/stance and can understand when people say they want A/V built in North America

In the context of the Asians..its clearly a $$ thing and D&M is not lighting the world on fire with their financials now...like Pioneer was not

So..if anything I see more "Chinese" invasion
I dont think 99.9% of the market cares

Yes my selections would be extremely impacted. That is why you'll notice I said, "When I can avoid it." I do own several items made in China. But I suppose this topic is more suited to some other thread on some other forum.

I use this receiver as my HDMI switcher. With my PC, I am no longer able to use GPU Scaling on my Nvidia graphics card, and I can only assume the Denon is the culprit since it used to work with my previous switcher. Has anyone gotten this to work or does anyone have a fix?

It's a vicious cycle ( but fun ) !


With most Blu Ray movies in my room the way it is currently calibrated, I use a setting around -5. And I too have my subs cranked up a bit from the calibrated setting. Sounds like tanks are really rolling through my theater watching Fury !!

Fury was awesome. I can't wait to build a dedicated sealed space. Because I'm in a open living room it is so hard to get that impact and pressurized feeling. I have my 2 martycubes 2 infinity near field 12's, and now my 4 bass shakers. Between all that it really make me smile but a lot is wasted trying to pressurize the whole house.
