Amp thoughts

What has Naim Nait 2 got in common with a BAT VK500, PA Audio GCP-200 with external power supply and a PS Audio GCPH phono stage? Both set ups amplify CD and turntable signals in my system. What are the differences?

Naim cost less than $1k a few years back,
it weighs less than 10lbs,
is half-sized.

The other set up costs $10k,
tops the scales at >150lbs,
takes up 4 boxes, one of which will not fit on a rack

Forgetting the extra cables you need to run the separates, is there 10 times the difference in sound quality? Hum........
