They do look like Kondo’s I agree, a ‘homage’ perhaps?

Horns, I have a pair going cheap ( ish).

Keith I have looked at your site and nothing on there has any resemblance to my idea of cheap (even - ish)

RME DACs and ADCs whilst not cheap aren’t expensive, Benchmark pretty decent value too.

Well almost but I don’t think the Topping for example which is an excellently engineered dac  has the versatility of the RME units.

Well the expensive ones have a nice case of course, the case is the single biggest component cost.

I just stock the best measuring, Benchmark aren’t cheap but they measure as well as anything, I don’t stock ‘effect boxes’.

All I know is my old Hafler has a cheap steel case .. however in 1979 it retailed built for about £450+  which was not far off the price of a Meridian 105, was dearer than a Quad 405 .. I agree many modern amps have cases that appear to cost a lot but  checking Ali Express - nice cases need not cost a fortune (if sourced from China).    Audio Research stuff has lovely fascias but the actual case is not very expensive .. the cost of the components inside are (transformers etc.)   It does beg the question that with some amps are you paying for the eye candy rather than the sound.

It is all relative - look at the prices of aluminium amplifier enclosures from China - if you move below the intricate designs  of the Chord and Pass - there are wonderful boxes to be had for half the price and far far less as you work down.  Still at least you know that almost a grand of the Chord amp is the case pmsl  https://www.aliexpress.com/w/wholesale-aluminum-amplifier-enclosure.html?spm=2114.search0104.0.0.60e67b863vHiSv&site=glo&g=y&SortType=price_desc&SearchText=aluminum+amplifier+enclosure&groupsort=1&needQuery=n
