What Is The Lowest Cost Encoder?

I am curious what are the options for super low cost encoders, for 1, 4 and 16 channel options.

Feel free to make recommendations but they must come with pricing.

I found a single channel encoder from Grandstream for $100 (GXV3500) which surprised me. What else is out there for single channel?

Bosch has a 16 channel unit for $1000. Others like that?
