at a very rough estimate, the DIY route offers the opportunity to spend around 30% of the price you would have to spend on the original.

i realise i'm here with the high-end forum, there are stakeholders who make their living with selling overpriced "high-end" audio equipment so i guess posts like this won't become too popular in here...
Well lets see there's the time it takes to learn to build this stuff really well and with due care, the time taken learning to understand how electronics really work so you can test them properly. The cost of buying both the components and case materials machining tools and testing equipment, and the time itself it takes to actually build and test the thing so you know its exactly within tolerance levels. Now work out how much you could have earned during all those lost hours if those hours were spent doing your normal job instead.

...sorry what was your point again?

Actually, that's exactly what you were saying. You resurrected an old thread to accomplish what?

If you don't need it, don't buy it. Manley didn't get a nice car by building crap.

Plenty of Capi threads for you to sing praises too as well.

Huh? This post is so weird.... I'd like to see you build a massive passive for 500$! Last I checked company's were started to make money. Her private life is non of our business. She makes quality products and that's that. We have a choice to buy her product or buy the next company's product. End of story.
