Michaelson Audio came into being long after the the demise of M&A and operated in parallel with the Musical Fidelity brand.

That's going back at least 15 years, probably more and whatever I once knew, I have long forgotten. I remember a review of the Chronos in the UK magazine HiFi News and there may have been one of the Odysseus around same time.

Ok so I picked up the Michaelson Audio (written on the amplifier) Odysseus Mark II and I am impressed. Great dynamics and lots of power (4 EL34's per channel Ultra Linear/Fixed Bias). What I don't understand is that the amp is rated 45 Watts per channel Class A, seems it has alot more steam than that and I didn't think 45 watts with 4 EL34's was possible?

Well I am impressed with this amplifier. I have begun to roll out the stock 12AX7's (Sovteks I believe), and was very surprised. I tried a pair of smooth Tele's and there was no bottem end. I tried a pair of vintage 50's Valvos and the bass was mushy, but great midrange. I then tried a pair of Amperex (60's stock) which tightened things up a little on the bottem end. I'll keep rollin' to find the right combo. Outputs are Sovteks as well, and I might try some Svetlana's instead. Any ideas for 12AX7''s?

This was indeed launched in 1991 for the US market.
4 times EL34 per channel has 96 watts total plate disipation and Class A push pull is 50% efficient so 48 watts output. Second valve was ECC85.

No comments on A.M. Still around playing clarinet.

Hello Friends,
I'm planning to build the clone M&A TVA-1 Power Amp Stereo.
I have the schematic drawing and heard that the Power supply is critical to the design to prolong the Tubes. The schematic drawing I have is a simple power supply believe is not good enough for the Tubes.
I have heard of the Soft Start and Delay Circuit that can help to prolong the life of these Tubes.
Is there anybody that can help.
Also what is the current that draws by the TVA-1 Amp and trying to custom made the Power Transformer.

Will appreciate anybody can help.
