    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

    I've always thought the goal of high end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Note that the vehicle he avoided has stopped for no visible reason. The lane in front of him is clear.

    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.

    I can’t tell if that’s a reflection of coffee or a cocktail in the first picture.

    Clear as a bell, it's the vortex created wherever Russ goes. People who get sucked in wind up in India, around 1968, wondering wtf happened, wearing black socks/sandals/shorts....and squirrel skin underwear.
