I thought I knew and now I am having doubts. Ortofon are German aren’t they and Denon is Japanese? If so, TT, arm and amp are British, head amp and phono Japanese, speakers from good ol’ US of A and the German cart.

When it comes to speakers, never mind 'Buy British'', I've narrowed it down to brands from England:

Celestion

Wharfedale

Mission (when part of Cyrus)

B&W

Spendor

Proac

Kef

PMC

Certainly been a good industry for the country. And, from the above, all but Celestion continue to bring out new models.

Oh dear - you never got the news about Celestion - Today Celestion International and KEF form GP Acoustics UK.  Celestion ceased to manufacture finished pro audio systems and hi-fi/home theatre products, and now focuses on the design and manufacture of lead guitar, bass guitar, and professional audio sound reinforcement speakers.  The Celestion Company we knew and loved are no more :cs:

I think most of my stuff is either British-designed, British made, or British-designed, made in China. Except the amp, which is Danish
