granted things are about the bottom dollar and what will make money.
trust me many of these flagship pieces dont make money for the companies.
Thus you will see many of them no longer being built.
If there is no demand then why build it..
and by demand I'm not refering to simply a couple dozen people wanting something.
We are talking about it on an international level.
Many of these companies in order to get a certain model of an amplifier built they need to place a minimum order... So if you cant sell that number then why build it.
I'm glad I've got myself on of those amps that is no longer being built
