LSA Customer Loyalty & Mixed Feelings

Having built my audio system up progressively and very slowly over the years when funds became available I am at a stage where part of my current system is an LSA Statement Integrated Amplifier which I purchased new a couple of years ago. This replaced my previous amplifier a Berning ZH-270. At the time I purchase the LSA it was retailing for approximately $9000.I was therefore somewhat surprised and a little pissed to see an advert on AG advertising them now new for $3799.
As an owner it does not impress me that should I wish to on sell mine the value has been considerably eroded due to this marketing change.
On the other hand as an audio nut and music lover it is great that such a good product is more accessible price wise to anyone contemplating the upgrade path.
Mixed feelings you Betcha.
