    Merhaba!

    I think all Polk's are made in China. I was in Izmir, Turkey for 2 years (1992-1994) working for NATO. Welcome brother!

    Apologies Kumadam.

    Guys, lets try not to be arrogant Americans. It makes us all look bad. Turks are a very proud, good people. If you have a Turk for a friend, you have a friend for life.

    They are very sensitive about respect for their culture and country (as we are), and I understand completey; just as we wouldn't like a foreigner coming on here making "American" jokes...right? I lived in Turkey..(which, by the way, is the way we incorrectly say it...it's actually Tur-kee-ya in Turkish) and these are wonderful people. I treasure the memories I had in my time there. These are hard working, friendly people that would give you the shirt off their back---very much like Americans; which probably explains our good relationship with them.

    Again, sorry Kumadam...

    They don't come with a sense of humor there?

    I think we were just joking around.

    In any event, welcome to the forum. We like to tell jokes here from time to time. Have fun.

    Good friend of mine married a turkish girl. I was his best man on their wedding in Ankara but unfortunately didn't have time to see Istanbul. Next time. Now they are back in Finland but I met many Turks here in DFW that I still keep in touch. Very nice and friendly people! Welcome to the forum!

    Kumadam, in America, that is what is known as a "Freudian slip".

    .....or a one-track mind.

    .....or both. :)

    You'll find the Turkish folk saying, "Havlayan kopek isirmaz" applies here.

    Have some fun !

    Welcome to the forum.

    Polk stopped making their speakers in the USA many, many years ago. For nearly the past decade they have been made in Mexico, switching to China 2-3 years ago.

    The main reason for the move is of course, inexpensive labor and lack of costly restrictions/laws for factories. Build quality and sound quality have not changed.

    Seriously, no harm was intended towards you, kumadam. We make fun of ourselves more than anything/anyone else.

    It's been said here, to just about everyone that has joined CP, that thick skin is almost a prerequisite.

    Anyways, welcome to CP. Hope that you stick around and get your audio learn on.

    I have many fond memories of my port visits to Izmir and Antalya Turkey in 1989 and 1991 courtesy of the US Navy. I also have fond memories of drinking "Raki" and experiencing why it is referred to as "Tigers Milk" !!
    Thats some strong stuff! Welcome to Club Polk!
