Yep it's all about demand. How many working class members of the public are going to walk in off the street ready to offload 10 grand plus on a hifi system, not many methinks...I can only guess it's about demand. All of my local Marantz dealerships only get asked about the more affordable ranges. They don't stock any of the ref stuff. If you want to demo the more expensive Marantz amps it generally takes a while for them to order whatever model you want to demo.
Plus if we use the Rubies as an example 1000 units of each were released worldwide late 2018, the final units probably sold late 2021. That roughly equates to 2 units sold per day worldwide... not a huge figure is it? I bet their cheaper siblings sell by the bucket load in comparison.
