I just did some rough conversions: Their pre-amps range from a bit over $2k to roughly $4k, though there is one model (a passive attenuator design) that didn't have a price listed. So they are pricey but not as much as I had thought. I guess it was the monoblock models that I was think of as being really high priced. Ugh, College! I can't even imagine. I bet many high-priced speakers and other gear on Audiogon can be directly linked to a kid needing funds for college. Which I guess is a good thing - prioritizing your child's future over your own hobby. Still..... college is just SO expensive these days. I can't even imagine what it will be like when my kids get that old.
