It's got an FCC ID number printed on it, so I assume it's for the USA market.

Lettering is all English except it does say "Fabriqué En Chine" in French.

Mine has the French as well, which leads me to believe Sony was making one production run for both the US and Canadian markets.

I sent my first one back to Sony service in New Jersey, due to unequal levels (left channel was low) and got back PCM-A10 #1000694.

No production date that I can see

Did you get a good unit sent back? I had the same issue, sent it back, and the second unit had the same issue.

How much lower was the channel? I think I might have a similar issue.

In my case, one channel was about 6dB lower than the other. :(

I'll check the file from the first attempt... I think it was down -6dB or so
Ok

My test recording shows peaks which differ by nearly 5.5dB
Note that the discrepancy with the line input levels was never an issue with the internal mics, which is one reason I didn't notice the problem for a few months.
