The original Craig Electronics in Compton, CA was liquidated in 1997 after several financial scandals.  They imported and relabeled largely Japanese gear throuout the 60's, 70's and 80's, usually from Sony, Audiovox and Casio.  The trademark on the name was forfeited in 97 as well, so whoever is using it now has no relationship to the original company.  Same thing happened to the name Phase Linear.

I actually owned a Craig home receiver in the mid 70's.  All Sony inside and sounded really good!

Wow! Phase Linear! That's the first time I've heard of them since a friend had a pair of Phase Linear 6x9's with a Sony 200 W amp (before Sony car audio gear was looked down upon) in a Ford Tempo. I think it was in about '93 or '94.  To this day, all speakers I hear are compared to them. I have never heard anything clearer, and have never been able to find them since. Weren't they associated with Boston Acoustics, or is that who bought them out? Maybe Boston saw some real competition finally, and took em over real quick, lol.

Phase Linear was Bob Carver's company.  Their gear was beyond compare.  So was Carver gear, the company that Bob created next.  Carver magnetic field amplifiers for the car are amazing if you can find them.  His current enterprise is Sunfire, building some of the best home theatre gear in the world.  If you want to hear a subwoofer that completely disobeys all the recognized physics about size, check out the Sunfire Super Junior.  20Hz @ 120db from a 9" cube...
