Country of Origin / Manufacture labelling

Can anyone confirm if the packaging for any and/or ALL of the HSU products has any indication of their country of origin/manufacturing? According to Canadian Border Services website, as a Canadian, we do NOT have to pay duty/taxes on goods manufactured in the USA or Mexico. I don't see any explicit references in the user manuals for where the HSU products are manufactured - I was wondering if the OUTER packaging has any "Made in the USA" labelling?

I am doing my homework and if I can avoid paying $200 - $300 in taxes, then it would be worth it for me to ship said items to a US dropbox location and pick them up versus shipping them cross border and unnecessarily paying duty. A quote I got a while back for the 5.1 system with VTF-15h MK2 sub, was totalling about $2000 USD (including shipping and taxes) so I figured why not save some money.

If anyone has done this, or has brought the goods across into Canada, I would be interested to know if you had to pay duty and provincial taxes or not.
