Sure am hoping it is a Japanese made product as I have been waiting to replace my old receiver.
Wonder where the new Pioneer Elite SC-68 is made?
Edit - - I see on the back panel of the brochure it is made in Malaysia so is not Chinese. See the same label on the Integras.
The AVR-4313 has been discussed about for some time around here. The scuttlebutt was that there was going to be an AVR-4312, but the Earthquake that devastated the North of Japan caused it not to be built. And I could not agree more about AVR's being Made in Japan is a thing of the past. The market is too cutthroat to support the much higher Labor Costs of manufacturing in Japan.
Here are some Posts from here discussing it:
From JDSmoothie: "The new Denon 4313CI will be replacing both the 4311CI and the 4810CI and will be Denon's new flagship model going forward. It is supposed to include Audyssey's new LFC feature, although more information likely won't be available until April when the other XX13 model information is released.
As this Post was from 2011, it seems the nomenclature changed from 4313 to AVR-4520CI
Avland.co.uk has been reasonably on target about future models, but have missed on a few in the past. It makes more sense to name it the 4520 as it replaces both the 4311 and 4810 and then of course can price it accordingly.
