Absolutely not! Once upon a time the ODL owner was part of the Odyssey company. However, they parted ways and he immediately started up his new company using technology and production, brought from his experience at Odyssey. Hence, the look alike. Obviously, this was neither fair, nor legal, and a lawsuit ensued. My understanding is that Odyssey won the lawsuit and the principal of ODL was to cease production of the Odyssey copies. Beware, even though they look similar, Odyssey is the only one that can produce and sell the designs (from the Symphonic Line designer) that you are reading about, and seeing so much praise. Plus, they are selling their Stratos amp for less money. Do yourself a favor (if you are interested in the Odyssey products), and make sure you deal with Klaus Bunge, the owner of Odyssey designs. You can't go wrong there. I hope this helps clear up any confusion.
