Thank you for your inquiry.
All Harman appliances are assembled in the USA, in either Pennsylvania or
Iowa. Some parts are obtained from Canada or Mexico.
Your local dealer can best qualify your needs based on your specifications
and home. We recommend you work with them for the best possible selection.
For assistance finding a local dealer, visit our website.
So, they do source some parts outside of the USA, but at least it's not China or India....
Hey DC does that cat got your tongue? Bashing Harman owners on sending their money to China. :bag: I know funny but wrong[/quote]
Their money goes to China.... I gave the link to the "Head" of the dragon previously.... not to mention the fact that I don't believe a freeking word anyone out of Determans office says... so...they get their parts from Mexico who get them from China (you cant be that gullible)
I personally don't like this conglomerate that is a fact... from the way they operate, to the way they keep a ball and chain on dealers and dealerships to keep a fine line on high prices, to their customer support, to their silly sheets of glass etchings of reindeer and tassels on a coal stove that cost $100 to replace when you smash them. there is a reason Brazil & China are BOOMING economy's right now! (wake up and smell the coffee because this conglomerate is one of the reasons!)
I do notice Harman offering Save $100 – Web Only Offer (this folks is UNHEARD of from HHT on Haman's), the 0% financing appears to be a new wrinkle in the game as well... all "TELL TAILS" to an educated person
