I hate doing this but I also want to produce my own theory why Tera player cost a lot:
1-He spend a lot of his own money developing this DAP
2-He did not want to risk going into mass production and wanted a quick way to pay off his own investment so he decided to place a high price tag
3-He probably was able to pay off his own investment after the first 10 unit were sold.
4-He cannot go into mass production simply because he knows doing so would probably reduce the price to a level that the folks who bought it will have a riot on head-fi and therefore we will not see the price reduce
