The original is about $1200

Here is where I found the copies... ... -2&nav=cat

From the (Warning) on the 1st post in the thread, they are the exact same amp, built by the same manufacture.
Just reread the thread. Copy? That might explain some things...... :-k

[EDIT:] How did you know it was a copy? I couldn't find it? Still impressed for a $4bill amp.
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

The local guy here that was stocking the "ODL" versions, explained the story to me when I bought it.

I thought I saw a picture of this amp that had four more caps (off the circuit board).
It should sound like it isn't there!
