Words from the wise. If Red Rose can import the amps manufactured by Dussun ( China company) then rebadged them and sell for $5000.00 with Mark Levinson signature design, and these hi-maintenance audiophiles would die to buy them just to have the highly regard Mark Levinson name behind the Dussun amp. That will tell you the mentality of people who consider the Lepai 2020+ is junk and garbage.
The Audio Research 100.2 is a class D switching amp and the 150.2 is the Tripath amp and people were willing to pay 2K for it because the Audio Research name on the nice face plate.The 1K Atoll ( French company) A900 CD player which was highly regarded by the folks at Stereophile was nothing but a rebadge of the $75.00 Technics CD player but I do not believe they would praise the $75.00 Technics CD player.
That's the irony of the hi-end audio. Placebo effect works and works very well .
