Every company in every industry in the USA uses many parts in their products that are made overseas. Starting in the 80s, corporations all decided to have all or part of the components they use made where it can be done for the lowest cost, to maximize profits. In the audio world, almost all the well known iconic speaker brands from the UK and the USA have their speakers made in China, after being designed and engineered in the UK or USA. The same is true of most affordable mainstream audio components, amps, receivers, CD players, DACs, etc. Really high end audio electronics and speakers are still made in the USA and Europe, but many companies have their top of the line speakers made in their own local factory, and their more affrodable lines made in China. There are also several large conglomerates, some in the USA, and some in Asia, that own a lot of the iconic audio companies that we've known since the 70s.
