Agreed - buying a car for example (yes I know you can mostly likely see them, touch them before purchase versus what we are discussing here). You get a perceived value for the sum you are willing to pay. You don’t expect a BMW M5 for the price of a Toyota Camry.
We judge perceived value differently. Are you willing to give up leather seats to get an engine you want? Are you willing to give up two more feet from the front wall to get the speakers you want?
The price is going to be what it is. Some will be disappointed, some won’t. I want a pair of 300’s, I can’t afford them just yet, so I wait.
