Vis a vis the China situation, vendors are not all equal. We have some who stand by their mistakes and go well out of their way to help us. Others who fight and posture and tell us that it's our fault for not managing them better. Those are on notice, make no mistake about it.
Just remember that small companies like ours actually have more leverage than you would think in dealing with bad vendors because Google indexes everything, including this website, and the community of audio companies is quite tight-knit. When working through a 20,000 mile internet connection, trust matters. Our "western" sensibilities of fairness and quality are shared by many thousands of vendors like us who comprise their customers. No company doing business today can ignore legitimate customer complaints and at no time in the history of the world, have companies been so focussed on customer satisfaction. We are.
Materially, we name most of our vendors on our "About Us" page and already know that they've received more business by association. Others prefer to be un-named. Virtue could not produce items that you would consider "a bargain" without them. No sources in the US could match their prices and quality (both); Virtue would not exist without them.
