There's a large difference between picking up some cheap OEM garbage and re-selling it at a billion times mark-up, and simply picking up a working OEM product and re-selling it at a reasonable (insofar as the market accepts it) price.
The pictures do look identical, at least for the XPA and UPA amplifiers, I would venture a guess that the pre/pro is from the same source, but perhaps has had some changes made to it over the Winner one?
Always fun to see OEM<->"Brand" links established outside of the walled garden.
