I don't know if I'd call it "cheap" unless you are willing to go with clones for the Bondtech gears and prusa filament sensor. It's certainly cheaper than the bolt-on DD system Bondtech is pushing right now. This is what led me down this path.... $260 for that DD extruder. Even using legit parts I can come in far under that price point leveraging the MK3S design.
