A thread was posted on another forum speculating that the Lionheart range had been moved to China for production. Rather than just deal with rumour i emailed Laney to find out what the deal is. Here is their response- Thanks for the enquiry, Production of the L5T and L20H/T has moved to china, built in the same factory as the highly successful Iron heart range. The amp has been upgraded and now has digital reverb and a switchable series FX loop. Regards Dave Thompson Senior Service Engineer To be honest the move to China doesn't surprise or bother me. I have one of the newer Chinese built Lionhearts and it's still a fantastic amp. The UK made ones have "Made in UK" on the back of the amp, the newer Chinese made ones have "Designed and Engineered in the UK" on the back. I'm not big on reverb use so the change to digital doesn't really bother me, but i'm not sure i'd agree with it being an "upgrade". As i said, country of manufacture doesn't bother me as long as the finished product is good, and it still is. But from spending a fair bit of time on TGP i know it's an issue for a lot of you, so i thought i'd give you a heads up.
