Nah. Most likely explanation is that they believe -- probably correctly -- that they can charge more for a product that was made in Japan. Regardless of whether it is or is not of higher quality. ...

The soundbar will need to be positioned farther forward and up, which means that it likely will not be able to attach to the screw points on that mount. You'll probably need to "jerry-rig"...

Network services such as Plex or other DLNA sources do not seem to be considered as "inputs". They are merely devices that you can access. Isn't semantics wonderful.

Unless you're really hurting for cash, I'd recommend going with the 14-gauge wire. It'll better prepare you for higher-wattage amplifiers, lower-impedance speakers (4 ohms), etc. And it's only a...

Very unlikely that it's from the 1970s. Probably early to mid 1960s. And probably a quad of EL84 (6BQ5) tubes, for about 14 watts per channel. Or maybe 6BM8s, for about 8 watts per channel.
