"Heavily Modified"

That's a popular phrase among amp assemblers that incorporate OEM modules in their audiophile amps. Other than being "heavily modified" or using a "heavy linear power supply", what more can they offer? They're all OEM modules designed by someone else for easy packaging in a nice enclosure. The "packager" has little R&D or engineering investment in the final product.

I'm not saying they all sound bad, but this whole "heavily modified" B.S. is just a way to try and differentiate themselves in a market full of OEM module packagers.

OK. Turning OFF my cynical attitude now. ;-)
