All the AVRs are made in China with the exception of the flagship >$1000 models for each of the brands. I wouldn't worry about that. The Marantz 5008 is a fine receiver with Audyssey XT, 7.1 pre-outs, etc. The Yamaha Aventage A830 has a similar complement of features. It also features the more advanced version of YPAO, YPAO R.S.C.
