With all due respect, I get the impression Kharma marketing strategy is to create "a lifestyle product line", catering to the "discerning audio connoisseur with impeccable taste (and lots of cash) " - A rapidly growing demographic in Asia!
A full range of products designed around around appearance (a huge part of Kharma "branding" (and the engineering budget I might add). Slightly off putting to me.
I like the concept of some guy in a garage obsessed with create the best sounding single piece of kit, and if succesfull build a company around that product. This typically leads to specialization (i.e. Audio Research amps, Transparent cabling, Avalon speakers, MSB digital audio etc.), rather than creating a "full product line" with "design" as the unifying theme.
