The questions were asked...
"3. Actually all companies produce their "own stuff", never heard of Denon producing Yamaha, or Onkyo producing Pioneer! JK
4. Dedicated Japanese engineers do not produce any of the models, its those young men and women wearing lint-free white textile gloves in the factory who are producing them. With the supervision of those dedicated Jap engineers of course. In Japan, in Malaysia, in China, etc."
So we provided a response, noting which brands in fact produced their own stuff.
Regarding quality issues, this opens many areas...
The 1st is Denon does not
build their own stuff, but before condemning the brand and/or factory maybe a review of the AVR install is in order...1.
Does the AVR have the adequate free-air clearance of 4-5" for the L/R sides and top cover as noted by Denon?2.
Was their any component stacked on top blocking the top cover?3.
Any shorts in the loudspeaker wiring?4.
What brand/model loudspeaker is connected?5.
How loud was the AVR played?6.
How big is the listening room?
Note that I have visited the Denon subcontractor factory, many , many times and I can tell you that Denon's QA standards are far more rigid
than the AVRs' brand that owns the factory... 😁
Just my $0.02... 👍😉
