Michaelson and Austin Oddysee
 
I have an opportunity to horsetrade for one of these amps. I have heard miced reviews regarding this company. The amp uses 8 EL34's and two 12AX'7 and rectifiers (can't remember what type). Output is rated 45 watts per channel class A. Anyone have any info on this integrated amp?

Thanks

Peter

Hi,

This company took over most of M&A's activities and product range:

PAPWORTH

Hello LPD,

one of my friends has used a one of these for years.
He used them with B&W 801 S1 speakers. I have listened tot his combination a lot.

I always liked the sound of the amp (although not too powerful, at least not on the 801's) and the (bizarre) looks of course.

If you could get it for areasonable price I would certainly take it!

It is the one in the picture, right?

Matt.

Do you think it will be enough power for 90db speakers?

Thanks

More than plenty power to drive even a 84dB/m pair of speakers.

Cheers,;)

Well if the price is right I might jump on it.

Any ideas what this amp retailed for new? How about used?

Thanks

Peter

Not even the foggiest...

Don't think so...unless both companies existed at one point in time I've always known it as being Michaelson (Anthony) and Austin (?).
My first valve preamp was a M&A TVP-1, BTW.
Some of the designs were done by Tim de Paravicini as well, IIRC.
Later on AM joined/co-founded (?) Musical Fidelity.

Cheers,;)

Thanks for the help. Haven't found much info online about the amp, but I think I'll take the plunge and try it, if it doesn't work out I will just resell.

Hi lpd,

the amplifier is for sale at a shop near my house.
They are asking 1000,- euro for it.
So that's roughly a $1000,-.......

But the shop is a bit expensive. I guess you could get it for a bit less.

Good luck!

Matthias.
