Lexus is the luxury division of Toyota. They have their own factories, workers, and dealers. I learned this from a Lexus salesman. (My parents both have Lexus')

Sorry to get a little of topic but I don't think the Lexus-Toyota & Steinway-Boston/Essex relationship is very comparable.

Steinway maybe the luxury division of Boston/Essex. They may have their own factories, workers, and dealers.

The Lexus-Toyota & Steinway-Boston/Essex relationship is probably not comparable.

Perhaps they found it "best" as opposed to "necessary". After all the Baltimore Knabe scale design was very good.

"why there is such emotion on this topic."
Emotion about music and politics? Who would have guessed?
