One and a half years old MA-2 MK 3.3 Reference Edition with $1300 test jack upgrade, a feature tricked down from MA-3. Customized tube bank switch which can select whether to use full or half of the tubes in working mode.
Introduced in 1990, the MA-2 was the largest production triode amplifier and the largest production OTL in the world for nearly 12 years. In that time it set the bar for quality that has yet to be surpassed; it is one of the finest amplifiers made anywhere in the world regardless of price. Not only is it one of the most powerful production Output Transformerless amps available, it is also the most reliable. Audio purists have craved the design features of this amplifier since the beginning of Hi-Fi; only Atma-Sphere has succesfully put them all in the same place at the same time.
Now the Mk. 3.3 boasts an improved gain stage with even wider bandwidth and greater transparency than ever before. We have added switchable feedback and automatic tube biasing to round out the package. Yet it remains smooth, detailed, and tuneful with a speed that belies such a large tube amplifier. Unlike many other amplifiers, it will stand up to constant playback without any noticeable artifact. And the improvements the MA-2 offers will be obvious on any system within seconds of powering it up; it sounds that good.
The MA-2 is noted for its superior performance on Sound Lab, Wilson Audio, JM Labs, Magnaplanar and Avalon loudspeakers. These are speakers that need an amplifier capable of serious power. An amplifier that can fully utilise the full bass frequency range of the speaker with the proper control and impact, while simultaneously retaining detail, delicacy, and speed. This is an unusual combination but this is what sets Atma-Sphere apart from the competition.
