Aune T1 MK2 currently 160 with free shipping on Amazon. Even with the awesome Gold Lion tube thrown in i am feeling a bit let down with this drop. Debating on cancelling :/

I think you're looking at the MK1... that's the right one on Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Aune-Second-Generation-Amplifier-Decoder/dp/B00IWK8FK2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1405172655&sr=8-1&keywords=aune+t1+mk2
And when you add in the extra tube (which I think is worth around 30$)... well, you get an OK deal, certainly better than Amazon...

It's quite interesting that the Amazon one supports 24/192, but this one is 24/96. A bit confusing.

Haven't noticed that, thanks for pointing that out! I'm not sure why the one on Amazon supports 192, but it doesn't really matter... 192Khz is mostly marketing, and for the most part doesn't make a difference. 96Khz is more than enough.

I think the Massdrop specs are a typo. MK1 is 96 kHz. MK2 is 192 kHz. Well, hopefully it's a typo. Otherwise the MK2 is a typo and they're selling the MK1. :/

According to the specifications sheet available on Aune's own site (http://pub.hifidiy.net/index.php?m=content&c=index&a=show&catid=189&id=1), it looks like although the internal DAC is capable of processing 24/192 audio, it can only accept input up to 24/96 via USB.
According to this site (http://www.quartzacoustic.com/shop/headphone-amp/aune-t1-24bit-usb-dac-tube-headphone-amp/), it looks like the reason for that is the MK2's reliance on the SA9027 for USB decoding (http://www.saviaudio.com/product.html), which is limited to 32/96, and the PCM1793 DAC (http://www.ti.com/product/pcm1793) which is limited to 24/192.
Either way, still a nifty little combination DAC/AMP. I think I'll stick with my MK1 this time around though.
