Actually, yes. It is easy not to see them, but not easy not to hear them.

For what it's worth, I don't see anything in this document, or inclusion of any tariff codes, that would apply to any of the products made by my company, or a whole lot of my friends' and colleagues' companies. The tariff codes we use are not included at all. 8543.7006 seems to cover any digital audio processors you might be thinking of, but all-analog boxes generally fall into other sections, including 8543.7096 (not included in this document) or the 8518 categories (also not included). This might seem arbitrary and unfair, but remember these categories are established at a level of oversight that's utterly unaware of what a gearslut needs to indulge his or her gearsluttiness or gearsluttitude. They didn't intentionally favor analog(ue) gear over digital gear, but the effect is the same: You Europeans have been given a strong financial incentive to return to your roots. Buy analogue gear today!

I might also mention that the import tariff structure is based entirely on declared country of origin, which is a complicated topic but is ultimately determined for each product beforehand by the manufacturer. If their paperwork is in order and they declare the product to be substantially of US origin, these tariffs would apply. If they validly declare a product to be of some other origin, the tariffs would not apply.

Yes, you do.

If your Volvo sounds like a Harley, there is obviously something wrong with it!

...In fact, you should immediately pull over to the side of the road, and call for assistance!

I fixed it. Just a little hole in the muffler. I put some Gaff-tape on it and it's all good.

For 5 minutes until the gaffer tape burns off.
