People time to time think that if they buy comparable thing for 5x price, they will get 5x value (of some kind). This is certainly true with gold and diamonds. When it comes to simple tech like audio electronics, anything above certain price point is anything but someone else PROFIT. Nothing bad, just the free market.
BTW, if you wish to acquire custom product for reasonable price, you can go to diyaudio.com, one can find there many reputable builders from USA and Canada.

Since you are in a SET league, arrange a visit to someone owning 4P1L based SET amp with filament bias. Quite possible this is something that may suit your sonic preferences.

Web site for your 4P1L reference, it's owner living in Europe / UK however.
