    i just bought a 6b lunchbox for $400 + shipping,brand new, but i've seen people selling,on ebay, the 4b version for over $800.
    what's the difference? i mean, pardon my ignorance, but isn't 6 more than 4!?
    or is the power supply better?

    Mann....you got quite the deal. That's crazy...

    The only difference is the amount of bay's...the 6 has 6 and the 4 has 4...

    The 6-slot lunchbox uses a different and lower cost power supply than the 4-slot lunchbox. API passed the savings on to customers and added two slots as well due to popular demand.

    extended question for audiograff

    i knew it had to do with the power supply! but still,is it a "good enough for the job" power supply?

    for all of you intrested in great deals on api's, audio tech supply is the place. check it out on api's homepage, there's their link.

    It certainly must be. API knows better than anyone else what a 6-slot frames requires for a proper power supply and they are well known for not skimping on anything they put their name on. If it was a case of one being better than another, I would figure that API would still offer the 4-slot lunchbox frame.

    thanx for all the answers.
    but,still, don't you find it intresting that the 4 slot is still more expensive then the 6 slot? i guess people are trying to recoupe what they invested then on the 4 slot and with that money buy two 6 slot lunchboxes.

    know this has become a new kind of forum:"psychological behavior of audio sellers and buyers"
