    It's a box full of nothing, albeit a thoughtfully laid out one -- $50 worth of parts in there. At typical hifi margins, a $1000 component.

    How do you know what the value of the parts in there are? The photo isn't big enough to identify part numbers. It's also a custom motherboard that probably required a fair amount of R&D and manufacturing budget to bring to production.

    It's not accurate for you to say that there's $50 worth of parts inside.

    Also for the record the MSRP is $2,200 not $1,000. :)

    It’s actually the audiophile version, built up with heavy high-quality materials and structurally much heavier than its competition

    He stopped for the yellow dozer/tractor that for some reason was on the freeway.

    I see it now, the dozer (back hoe) is hidden untill it swites lanes in front of the black van. Good catch.

    A bulldozer would have tracks like a tank instead of pneumatic tires.

    Killdozer would have three members like Rush and Triumph.
