Price is something we can get a handle on very easily, value on the other hand isn't so simple.

No it isn't. You have no idea how much it costs to build prototypes, samples and most of all to get people to know you. Then there is insurance, transport (what do you think a fancy box costs?), all the stuff Boomana mentioned. Do you know how hard it is to make a competetive product that people enjoy? You are (again) downright insulting people who want to make a nice product and sell it. Let's be honest: the RSA stuff looks and feels WAY better than that crap on eBay. Some people (like me) are willing to pay for that. If you're not, that's perfectly fine, but don't act like you know it all when clearly you don't.
This whole money thing in audio really pisses me off. It'd be nice if more people could just talk about stuff without their envy or pride getting in the way all the bloody time. Sexual frustration maybe? You're not a better or worse person whether you're rich or poor and just because something is expensive or cheap doesn't mean it's a fraudulent product by default.
I'm sure that LeePerry has a DIY automobile also, I'm sure he cant see spending the money on a "Greedy" Automobile Manufacturer.
