Where is anyone defending Lexicon in our hobby? As far as I see, all the threads and posts on this scandal have condemed Lexicon...
From another thread:
"Playing devils' advocate here, what if the Lexicon actually sounds better? Is it worth the extra $ even though you can't see any difference?"
"A good question... let's assume that there are some hidden changes that make it sound better (or maybe the more expensive outer shell somehow does that)... then whether it's worth the extra money is up the individual consumer (just like all upgrades in Hi-Fi)..."
This is Hi Fi, there will inevitably be a subset of people who think the magic Lexicon Fairy sprinkled the unit with magic dust and it will sound better and validly command a higher price.
