I guess I'm more po'd over his marketing tactic. Reminds me of bose. How many respected amp builders here claim their amp is the highest quality EVER? That you can't find a better amp? It's a modified cmoy for goodness sakes. And what cpu/microprocessor? I can't find it?
Who says the guy is going to jack the price up to 100 or 120? That's just pure conjecture... and even if he did, he's completely entitled to do so (it might affect the # of people buying them, but he's entitled to raise, or lower, the price any way he sees fit).
And as far as marketing tactic, I find some of Headroom's descriptions, etc. of their products on their website a little fantastical too, but I'm not going to start crapping on a product that I haven't even heard or tried. I don't know what your particular problem is with this particular builder/seller but its starting to sound a little over the top. If you haven't tried the product yet, then try to curb your opinions until they're more informed/educated on the amp in question. You've posted enough here, and have had enough experience w/ different amps, etc. so I think you'd be qualified to be a good, respected member to step up to the plate and try the amp out yourself. At least that way if you still hated the amp, you could say so because you actually demo'ed it and had firsthand experience with it. Just an idea.
