Love to see the innovation from a Canadian company! It's important to stay competitive and try to be a leader.
My Epic 80 system (with VP180 and EP500) sounds and looks as good today as it did 13 years ago.
I also notice a slight increase in pricing over the past 3 years or so. Maybe all those reviews telling Ian that his speakers sound as good as ones twice the price are having an impact.
