Hi, does anyone know if there is any difference between SD version and LT version? Is that correct that the SD version is made in USA but the LT version is made in China? thanks.

The Slim Devices ones have nicer looking logos.

They're all made in China, although I think the SD ones might have been assembled in the US from mostly Chinese parts.

Thanks Jim. I found it is written 'made in china' outside the packing of LT version here. But according the the data sheet of SB3 on this website it said 'Designed and assembled in California, USA'. That's why I came up the question.

They all are designed in California. By Sean and company.

Some of the earlier versions were assembled in the US from parts built
in China. Nearly everything electronic in mass volumes these days is
made in Asia, its a matter of cost.

Perhaps the early SliMP3 were made in the US, but even with automated
assembly of the surface mount parts, its hard to beat the Asian prices.

Only final assembly was done in California by Slim. The innards are all the same. The only difference between Logi and Slim ones is that the Logi ones have a new external power supply.

Thanks for all the above clarification.

And for Sean, thanks you for all your efforts on such amazing product.
