I've re-named the thread to something that isn't misleading. 
Short answer: Amazon. People will go to the store, try all the headphones, then buy the same model online cheaper and the store gets nothing, because competing with the online retailers isn't worth their time unless the store is huge (like you have with the electronics stores in Japan, which have a points system and still a large number of internet-shy, cash-preferring customers).   Have a read of this...

I'd guess @mikemercer has a crapload of Nordost power noise filtering stuff behind his desk still (correct me if I'm wrong).

As well, according to the news services, the workers aren't striking, just deliberately slowing things down, as they have contract re-negotiation approaching. They aren't allowed to strike under contract. If I'm wrong,...
Going by Rob's posts, they've addressed all the criticisms of the Hugo in the TT, such as the better and separate headphone amp and isolated USB.  I think we're heading into a price band that is a bit of a hard ask, but Chord products are sold the old-way, through dealers and distributors, which means the price is going to be high.
