This depends on one's definitions of "good setup" and "poor design".
Protecting all inputs from the effects of ground loops would add
significantly to the cost and price of home entertainment products
but would benefit only a very small percentage of those products'
users. They would be result in good setups from a performance point
of view but would be poor designs from an economic perspective.
I believe that the most of these products designers appreciate the
nature of ground loops as well as they do the cost considerations
required to be competitive.
