The Emotiva USP-1 stereo preamplifier is a delightful surprise. It performs far beyond its cost, and this is testament to the design skills of Emotiva's engineers. I also consider this a major step forward in the image that "Made in China" has. Even if the US economy were not in trouble, Emotive would sell a boatload of these preamps, and I suspect that, things being the way they are, maybe two boatloads.
