Not bad for a once small fishing village.

The 'made in Japan' stigma washed away quickly. Vietnam, Malaysia, Philippines, Cambodia, Laos are slowly replacing China.

Anthem AVM-60 is made in Vietnam.

Perhaps most notable is the price cut. And boy is it noticeable.  The AVM60 lists for $2,999 in contrast to its predecessor's$6,499 price tag. This halts what has been an ever-increasing price point for Anthem pre-pros and brings the AVM60 pricing back in line to the AVM20 days.  I asked Anthem how they were able to bring the costs back down and they told me that a combination of using a shared platform with the MRX line, which has higher volume and manufacturing in a state of the art facility in Vietnam.

The Marantz 7702 MkII is also made in Vietnam. IIRC, the 8802a is also made in Vietnam (Maddmaster can confirm).
