I could be wrong but I don't think it has anything to do with the global distribution network. I think it is more to do with their products being so popular at launch they can't keep up with demand so the rest of the world gets dealt with once their local market is mostly done for the on release buyers.
It can be frustrating but that is just how it is, a company will always deal with its biggest market first. A good example of this is the Focal launch which started in America despite the fact they are made in France and that was once again down to targeting the biggest market first.
Hope that helps and if anyone from Schiit can correct me feel free
It still baffles me how Nintendo screws this up with every one of their products by launching it multiple markets too quickly. Back a couple decades ago, they'd spread the release dates out between Japan, US, and Europe over 8 or 9 months.
