If the answer is no, then why not ask Kimber instead of guessing.
Why not lighten up?
This is a forum and I can post what I like, including my opinion
, as long as it's civil and reasonably on-topic. Personally, I am getting tired of this constant and usually belligerent insistence and requirement to post an extensive documentation of facts just to make a comment in a forum.
It's well known that the margins many "high-end" mfrs charge for products is extraordinarily high. For example, I recently bought a 1 meter pair of Zu Wylde IC directly from Zu on a one-day sale for $130; they normally sell for $340. My guess is that it cost Zu approx. $40-$50 to make the cable; they still made approx. $90 on the cables they sold me. Charging $340 for them is exactly comparable to the new pricing of Kimber Hero and representative of the ridiculous margins that high end mfrs charge for many products.
Oh, and BTW, the Earth is flat....
