Probably a good time to download all those useful application notes in the Rane library, before an inevitable New Enhanced Corporate Culture takes over...

I love Rane but I think the company is finished, moving manufacturing to China is all about companies making more money despite what bulls*t they spout about keeping prices competetive, Allen & Heath moved manufacturing to China years ago and the build quality plummeted, an ex Allen & Heath rep told me that it was all about raising profits, he said how he'd been  sacked for telling people exactly that, something which the top bosses at the company didn't want people knowing. But he felt people had to know the truth that it WAS NOT about keeping prices low, it was about the company wanting to raise profit margins significantly. Loud Technologies bought the legendary Mackie company and moved manufacturing to China and ever since Mackie products have been plagued with failures according to people who've bought Mackie equipment and dj shops i've spoken to.

I hope Rane equipment stays the awesome build quality it's always been but I don't think it will.

Yeah funny thing with the corporate managers, same song everywhere, raise margins, lower production cost, go to China, feed the dragon..... Then people are wondering why there is a recession....

Check out Jason Stoddards blog about his company schiit audio. Recently he's been writing about weird pricing policies for electronic parts from China. Prices are kept artificially high to keep american/european competition down.

Yes, heard the same a little while back.
Heard Rane was originally a family run business who took pride of their product but they just had enough and decided to sell.
They done well. πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎ

Some of the plate AMPS let go on the Mackie active stuff, there is a problem with them when driven hard (apparently), I have s408s and the build quality is amazing (designed by EAW) a mate had active Mackie 2x15 for his band never let him down also, cant say Ive heard any other issues than the plate amp in the active TBH but yep when it gets shipped out to China it can go wrong, even Martin use china drivers now, used to be ATC. Sign of the times.

Never criticise another man until you've walked a mile in his shoes. Once you have, call him what you like, you're a mile away and you've got his shoes!
