Can you say busted?

If Lexicon is your favorite brand then here's a shocker, the company figured if it isn't broke, then don't fix it and grabbed an Oppo BDP-83 Blu-ray player and encased it into a high end chassis and listed it for $3500 -- a $3000 case, wow? We know this type of thing goes on all the time in the world of electronics, but wow, this is just unbelievable. The folks at Audioholics didn't believe it either, so they stripped the two players down and did some bench testing to reveal that indeed both were identical -- other than the case that is.
And this is why high end electronics are a scam. This happens way more often than you think. When I first started working in the manufacturing industry it was pointed out to me that there were only 3 factories making VCRs all the boards were the same it was just a change in name plates. Same with most TVs. If you know what you are doing you can actually look at the labels and tell which brands are manufactured by which companies at which factories.
