As far as I know, Nippon of Japan which makes Denon equipment is a Hitachi subsidiary.

I was checking on some info at the Hitachi website and clicked on the consumer audio section. It said Hitachi consumer audio products are sold under the name Denon and referred me to the Denon website.

Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes.
That way, when you do criticize them, you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

When my friend was showing off her new Mercedes, I was tempted to say something like: "Hey, that's a pretty nice car-for a Dodge."
...but I chose self-preservation instead.

The HTF is really owned by a consortium of electronics companies, movie studios, and online retailers. Ron and Packy are the chairmen, and their intent is to get all of you to buy as many DVDs as possible, and to upgrade your HT gear every time one of their companies comes up with a new product.
They control what you buy, and when you should buy it.
Even some of the members of this forum are secretly working for these companies. Haven't you noticed how sales of "Bring It On" have flourished ever since Matthew Chmiel has showed interest in "what's her face"? He actually owns Universal. And remember that spy who once lurked on this forum who tried decrease the sales of "Pleasantville" and increase the sales of "Ronin"? Yes, he worked for MGM. Steve Christou is also the owner of Vivid Entertainment UK, as if that wasn't already obvious. And come on... who wasn't suspicious when Ron recommended those Bose headphones? Yup... you guessed it.

Now you understand the term "Japan, Inc."
Yes "Nippon of Japan" would mean "Japan of Japan" so I expect you got that name wrong.
I'm surprised I didn't know about Hitachi and Denon. Sony doesn't "make" Aiwa, but Aiwa is a subsidiary of Sony.
Another one, Nikon is a subsidiary of the enormoconglomerate Mitsubishi. Rumor is, when Mits took over Nikon they only kept them in existence for the optics they would provide for their video, copier and other equipment, since the photography part of it is actually minute in comparison.
