Default Atmosphere.

This amplifier is made in France. Atmosphere came to the Silicon Valley around 1990 to find a distributor in US. My friend was interested to be a dealer, they missed getting together couple times (back then there was no cell phone and when you are on the road, it is very hard to get in touch), so the meeting was never happened.
From what I remember, this amp has very good sound, and the transformer I believe was source from Millerioux (maker of excellent transformer), the amplifier cost around $5000 back then.

I was looking for but I not found any vestigial of this trade name. Looks like Atma-sphere but is Franšais, from the external aspect looks like SState DIY with pretensions of Jadis. I steel prefer the Accuphase further looks like baby amp. Somebody want to listen it. Please maintain informed to us. Best Regards.

Sorry for the destiny of your friend I guess is a tragedy. The amps further looks great. Anyway googleing and surfing the web I couldn't find any extra data. Thanks for your info.
The clue here I guess is which valve uses on the output.
The mixing of L34 and T88 I suppose doesn't work at least with a good or accurate sound.
Please receive a great regards from Spain.

I finally finished my Damn Good 300B Amp. I built two stereo amps and am running a vertical bi-amp on a modified pair of KRK R6 speakers. I'm really liking it.

The amplifier contains three of my circuits:
- 21st Century Maida Regulator (mounted on rear panel)
- 3 x Universal Filament Regulator (stacked 15 mm between boards in the center)
- 300B Driver Board

I use JJ 300B and 6N6P driver tubes. The sound is sweet and the sound stage is rather remarkable.

Approx measurements: 30 x 40 x 25 cm (W x D x H). 17.3 kg each.

Tom,

Congrats - great looking amps you got there. In some strange way reminds of two Brabus Mercs parked side by side.

Those are Electraprint transformers?

And the album you got there in one of the pictures is a real good one too.

Thanks!

Yep. Electra-Print transformers (300B, 5 kOhm primary, 4 and 8 ohm secondaries, 100 mA, 20 W, copper). I like them!
