I agree we will see a collaboration anytime soon. But there is a lot of corners you can cut when you go from American made boutique amp to a mass produced. Considering that within a few months it dropped for $6000 to $4000, I wondering what their profit margin was. With these new collaborations, on average there is a 50% drop in price. I doubt you can make it under $1000, I have no doubt you can make one under $2000 or possibly $1500. But I think thats too high for a collaboration. I dont think monoprice has enough consumer confidence to sell a headphone amp over $1000.
