Ummm....I think B&T had mentioned it sometime earlier that it was made in Mumbai, just like Audiobahn. But as long as the materials are good, quality control is good, the product should be good, regardless of where it is made. I do remember reading a lot of good illusion reviews here.

Kinda like Bull Audio. Designed, Engineered and Quality controlled By Rainbow Audio, Germany. But production is in China. So same logic like above.
China/India are'nt too bad at churning out stuff. We do tend to enjoy most of the brand names heard on the forums that are being produced in these low cost countries.
But yes, I must admit. The charm of using a product totally made by parent company in places like USA/Germany/Italy/UK/(any other developed economy) etc. is nice!

Don't you know (as a retailer) many of the brands available in the market today come signed with that line? And how does manufacturing location affect product performance? Whats your point here? I know you represent many other brands except Illusion Audio. Do you intend to defame the brand or something?

Moralfibre, Driven asked a very simple and legit question. If somebody knows they can answer. If not, even then it's ok.

What's with this passive-aggressiveness dude?? You are quoting a 3 year old post by Driven!?! What's your point?

This is news to me;

I never knew Audiobahn was made in India.

I was under the impression that MTX was made here. I remember reading it on one of the amps I had purchased.

Where ever Audiogahn is made, the amplifier chassis has a nice fit and finish, but the sound quality is very very average. That is why I have so many for sale...........

You may know your facts;
I cannot dispute it. However some links.

diyAudio Forums Archive - illusion audio nd-12 and infinity beta 300

::* i l l u s i o n** a u d i o* ::

Mobile Dynamics car stereo and security school phoenix links

Illusion Audio Nd-15

FS: Illusion Audio 5.1 Carbon Series Speakers - DTM Power BMW Message Board Forum

There are many more - I just do not want to clutter up the place.

I was under the impression that Illusion Audio was a company founded by Mr. Gary Cristie in Phoenix Arizona. But I am not sure. I am sure B & T will have details.
Best we ask him.

Thanks for your time & patience.

so what's the problem?

it's already written that it's engineered in USA not made in USA !!!

I am using apple Iphone which is designed in California but made in china!! and i think apple is one of the most best IT company all over the world.

It's the company R&D office can be there(USA) and the outsource will be of china's/ India's company .

So i think this thing is cleared up now!
