Sorry you feel snubbed I buy enough things from China like we all do. If China puts out a great headphone I may buy it.There still is a reason why top headphones like HD800,T1 are made in Germany. Kinda like how the Swiss are known for watches etc. How many great company's are gone now or are just a shell of a great company thanks to the cheap slave labor costs of China?
If you think the build quality of a Reference 7 DAC is bad I would like to know what you think is great?
