    EveAnna definitely knows what she's doing. Her pro-audio designs are highly regarded, such as the massive-passive.

    Is that a separate power supply with all those capacitors?

    Already shared some pics of the Atma-Sphere amps, but thought I'd also show some "open kimono" (so to speak) shots of the guts of such a piece of OTL wizardry. Looks closely, not a PCB to be found - all point-to-point, hand wired goodness.

    Btw, It's extremely entertaining and informative to read forum posts/interviews of Ralph Karsten, it takes a lot of knowledge and passion to make such impressive gear.

    Yeah, Ralph's a pretty cool (but quirky) dude as well, and knows his stuff . Had the pleasure of meeting him a time or two at audio shows.

    And the synergy of his OTLs with Bobby Palkovich's Merlin Music Systems speakers is quite special. Was really sad when we lost Bobby far too early...
