I think Japan has some high end AV gear readily available. China now has a growing upper class and the availability of high end AV gear should be growing, but the huge numbers of people who work in electronics assembly don't necessarily translate to a broad market, as they are not very well paid.
Televisons are a different story as virtually everyone in the world wants a TV, and TV prices have come way down in the last 8-10 years.
Also, there is still a market for direct view CRT TVs in developing countries.
As with some other items, certain parts for subwoofers are now available pretty much only from China. I remember learning that the magnets for speakers and subwoofers are manufactured only in China these days.
