Point to point is more labour intensive so it's more costly in most cases, but I think most good manufacturers can make a great product nowdays on pcb's. I may be wrong, but point to point seems more of a luxury than a neccessity nowdays. Most of the greatly revered recording gear in history has some pcb element. Not all of them, but a majority.
Thanks for the explanation.
