B-stock Vali 2 for $99 seems like a sweet deal. They must be selling slowly. In any case, it's a fantastic price for anyone that wants to try out tubes for themselves. I bought one for my Dad when it first came out and it's a nice amp. It's probably a harder sell now though since Magni 3 has the same features (aluminum top, preamp outputs) and twice the power, at $99. Still, I doubt you can find a better tube headphone amp for that price.
