You can get this on eBay for 250 shipped. MD must be banking on recent 6xx buyers watching Zeos's X7s & 6xx review videos to impulse buy this. I know I've impulse bought items after watching his videos. FYI, if one were in China, they could pick this up for between 180 and 200 USD at the current RMB/USD exchange rate.
How well can these drive the mrspeakers aeons in terms of both balanced and standard outputs?

Very well. This will drive any headphone perfectly fine.
So last time you charged for the color and the voltage .Now your charging for the power supply ,this is very shady .By the way why does the lower voltage cost more .

Because they know more people are going to buy this in the U.S. so they can get more money.
$250 if you buy it from Aune direct. I really dont understand why this drop is always like this. That $80 110v option has got to be a mistake. You guys usually aren't trying to screw us that bad.

Not if you know how to ebay shop
mahee
I used to buy and sell for several years....learned my lesson. eBay is the scamming place. I shop at Amazon. Good luck....don't forget the warranty issues too...but you knew that.
This is the stupidest trick ever. I have been waiting to buy this. I waited specifically because it was so much pricier on Amazon. Now I find out that it's going to cost that much anyway because the power brick costs $80. I would say this borders on fraud since there is no way to buy the item at the price advertised. Shame on you Massdrop. I'll get mine from Jeff and it will be enjoying it for months before I would have gotten it from you.

He means Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon.
The big bold $209.99 price on the right is total bs. When you hit join, the cheapest option avaible is $229.99.
I get it. This is a joke. MD is testing if people buy from them no matter what
Heck they even show msrp as 250 and charge you 280 and see if you buy from them
Initially, I thought that this was some kind of a pricing mistake, but it now appears to be intentional and I just can't believe it! This coming from Massdrop!? Are you seriously advertising this amplifier for $209.99? Then adding another $80 on top of that? This is an extremely shady tactic that doesn't do Massdrop's reputation any good at all!
Amazon has this for 300 and prime shipping. Here it's 200+80+15. I don't think the 5 dollars I'm saving is worth the 5-8 weeks I'll have to wait. This is a horrible drop.
lol... why does it cost $80 for 110v and only $20 for 220v...
Seems like a scam when theres a drop price but no option to even get it at the drop price listed.
WOW.. An extra $80 to get the power brick? What? So why not just put it up for $289 and include it for free? I mean. Make it $0.03 and charge $288.97 for the brick so they think its a REAL deal.

Shame because I love this thing.

Man, you KNOW it's a bad deal when even Zeos went out of his way to say so...
He has this already. Maybe he wanted it black? Anyways, nice post to highlight the issue anyways.
hey i currently have the JDS lab o2 portable version, using that to drive hd6xx and k712. would this make a lot of difference to justify the price tag? don't have a DAC yet, would getting a x1s paired with o2 make more sense than switching o2 for this?
What would be the better buy, this + dac or Jotunheim? I'm planning on using these with the AKG 7XX and HD 6XX, and some harder to drive headphones in the near future.
