3) RELIABILITY: totally stable operation AND a warranty ... whew thats a deal thats hard to beat!

Recipient of the Absolute Sound Golden Ear Award , the MA-1 has enjoyed an enviable reputation. The Mk.3.1 series builds on the advances of our decades-proven technology. An improved output section and enhanced driver circuit contribute to superior low level detail, smoother sound, wider bandwidth and AC power immunity. The new, rugged, non-magnetic chassis features classic looks with superior layout. Setup of the amplifier is simple with automatic bias.

The controls and switches are ergonomic without sacrificing performance. The MA-1 Mk.3.1 is easy to live with. It is easy on tubes and and tube failure is inconsequential. Despite its extreme performance, the MA-1 is known for remarkable ease of setup, ease of operation and day to day consistency.

REVIEW - by Paul Bolin Absolute Sound:
"Even though I spend much of the last two years listening to excellent power amplifiers, the Atma-Spheres proved to be a special and enlightening experience. The MA-1s, however, allow you to have your SET cake without those problems. The result of Ralph Karsten's patented design is an amplifier with high power (150 wpc) that can drive any speaker with a reasonably consistent impedance, ant that also has the harmonically luscious presentation associated with low-powered SETs. It combines that SET rich and lifelike midrange with superbly articulated deep bass and an open and airy treble. Its transient response is the finest I have heard at any price. It has no operational foibles and is a source of endless musical joy".

Here is what some of our past customers had to say about us:

Having been an audiophile and a reviewer for over ten years, I have dealt with many people in the industry. My experience with Chris Moon of was one of the smoothest, hassle free experiences I have had. I'm sure we will work together again soon. Thanks Chris,
Greg Petan, Managing Editor/

Chris, many thanks for facilitating my purchase of the Wilson X-1 Series 3's. The speakers were just like new, as you said they would be, and your post-purchase advice about setting them up in my room has been extremely valuable. You made a deal happen that neither the seller nor I would have been able to make happen by ourselves ... but you made it happen. Thanks.
Professor L. Schwarz - Purdue University

The new Rockport Sirius III turntable ($55,000) arrived safely in mint condition as promised. I can wholeheartedly recommend you to any high-end purchaser looking for the most exclusive equipment in mint condition. I will be using your service again I have no doubt for many years to come.
Simon Kern - Hemisferik Audio (AUSTRALIA)

We were so happy purchasing ($50,000) Goldmund Apologue speakers from you. Especially, kind consideration about the satisfaction of
goods since arrival to Korea was so happy for us. I can be sure that we have a reliable relation for purchasing more goods from you. Thank you again!
James Jin-Sung, Park (SOUTH KOREA)

I just purchased the Wilson Wamm 7 speakers (retail $220,000) from you at HigherFi and could not be happier. After wiring the funds to you advance, you made everything happen smoothly and professionally. I would not hesitate to buy from you again or recommend you. Thanks for a smooth deal.
