I think it was 530.00...lucky bastards...lol but like i mentioned before it is still about 200 bucks cheaper than getting it from yuking or alibaba seller..IMHO its a good deal at 650...i just got in on last drop...i suspect they may release a few more in the coming week or so..they did last drop

So there is no difference between the 530 and 650 versions? It does say this 'This drop is for the upgraded silver version of the La Figaro 339, which has an improved PCB with noninductive resistors that allow the unit to sound clearer and more pure'

I am unsure about the 2 versions u mention, is one of them the old version (prior to 2013 i think? ) where did u read about the two versions? Seems like this one is what the chatter on headfi has been about.....I understand there is only one model of the 339 being made now...but i could be mistaken.. i have been unable to get anyone from yuking to respond to recent emails..

It seems like there should only be one version now, but since Massdrop increased the price there must be some reason. They do mention it as upgraded. Hopfully someone from MD team clarifies the price increase and version difference

Someone just posted some interesting info on headfi.. it appears there is a newer version that is not on the website. i just asked him if that may explain the difference in tubes on this drop vs the website... chinese hifi is great value but really tough to talk to anyone and the details can be confusing, although Mr Yuking does seem to be a very reputable designer.
