Atma-Sphere MA-2 MK 3.3 Mono Tube Amps

Customer consignment sale : Atma-Sphere MA-2 Mk 3.3 mono block tube amplifiers in excellent condition. These have all the upgrades.  One owner, bought used from Atma-Sphere in 2008. Approximately 2 years left on manufacturer’s warranty. 

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 utilize 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.

ow the Mk. 3.3 boasts an improved gain stage with even wider bandwidth and greater transparency than ever before. They 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.
