Audioholics exposes LexiCON

For $3,500 LexiCON offers you the Oppo BDP-83, squashed into a nifty chassis (including the BDP-83's original chassis), proprietary ventilation cutouts on the bottom of LexiCON's chassis and a shiny faceplate.

"Proprietary improvements to Oppo BDP-83" ?

Uh, no.

Now, we all know companies have been doing this for decades, with usually lower level players.....at much lower prices. But $3000 up from the Oppo's retail price, for simply a chassis and shoving the Oppo player in there?

Wow!! That's bad.

Sorry. I didn't see it on here and figured this is something you folks would be interested in.

I know I am.

There a post on AVS by Cambridge Audio addressing similar concerns about their player.

Lexicon were rebadging Brystons at one point and charging less, weren't they? At least the used Lexicons now are worth a lot less than their Bryston counterparts.

I'd be more apt to buy rebadged Oppo in the guise of a CA than a Lexicon. Then again, why not just buy the Oppo?
