Just look at how expensive the bluetooth board jay built is. It's the price of a radio, but I bet he's not making much of a profit. Unless you're building 10,000+ of something, manufacturing and parts acquisition are extremely expensive. I'm not knocking his product by the way, it's a great product for a niche market. That was the direction I really wanted to go, but I got tired of chasing down clean OEM radios that didn't need a ton of work to refurbish.
I was completely kidding, although for larger brands and the way everything is on boards these days the internals of these would not be hard, it would be making the faces.

China? Making plastic parts? I think they do that in their sleep.
