Atma-Sphere MA-2 amplifier

Get a sense of what it's like to live with one of the world's best amplifiers by reading Marc Mickelson's excellent review of the most recent evolution of the Atma-Sphere MA-2 Mk3.1 OTL amplifiers in The Audio Beat.

Ralph Karsten continues to improve these remarkable amplifiers. Well done, Ralph!
Thanks for pointing out this review.

As a long time Atma-sphere user, and fan of Ralph's work, it's great to see recognition for his latest designs. So enamored, Years ago I decided to become a dealer because there were none in the New York area.

The latest MA1's are functioning beautifully with the TAD CR1's.

I have always thought that the Atma amps represented a good value, but with these latest designs, they compete with (and in aspects overtake) much more costly products.

I get to hear live unamplified music sometimes several times a week, and these electronics really provide a nice healthy dose of the real thing, and with a natural presentation with no fatigue that makes listening all day long possible, even at loud levels.
Congragulations Ralph for continuing to push forward the SOTA in amplifer design. I really would love to hear for myself but completely can relate to what the reviewer so well conveyed in this fine review. Great job Mr. Karsten!
Congratulations to the entire Atma-Sphere staff. The craftmanship is second to none and the newest 3.1 mods take these amps and pre-amps to "State of the Art" in every sense of the word. Compare these to anything but be prepared to purchase. Ralph and crew leap way ahead of the pack again! Nicely done boys I only hope the rest of the world catch's on this time, you deserve it.
