The legacy of McIntosh is that by some miracle they manage to keep some jobs in upstate New York creating audio components that have largely been commodified and produced at far lower cost in China and Malaysia.
Not only upstate New York but Binghamton of all places. Casting no shade on residents there but it is more of town than a city. I live in Rochester NY and it is much larger. Don’t get me wrong, it’s lovely, quiet place in the hills of Southern NY, but it must be hard to attract talent.
