In a current press release, the French manufacturer Atoll not only points to two new devices, but also to the fact that the Atoll components are completely manufactured in France – and that all devices are available despite the chip crisis.
Atoll ST 300 Signature Network Player – Features
The “streamer” is actually a real hi-fi control center. Because he can not only by LAN and WLAN stream (with full integration of Qobuz, Tidal, Deezer and MQA capability), it also offers two analog line level inputs as well as four Digital inputs. But that’s not all: In addition to its symmetrical and asymmetrical analog outputs, it comes with a coaxial and an optical S / PDIF output, so that it can also be used as a pure streaming bridge.
If you like, you can connect a USB mass storage device and stream directly from it. A 24-bit / 192 kHz DAC chip per channel as well as an analog volume control and a Class A output stage are intended to guarantee audiophile qualities.
Atoll AM 300 power amplifier: technology and performance data

The amplifier trains with Class A driver stage and Mosfet output stage are discreet and fully symmetrical in double mono executed. The signal is output via high-quality Mundorf loudspeaker terminals. The Atoll AM 300 can be operated as a stereo power amplifier, in a bi-amping configuration or as a bridge circuit.
Both devices are available in black and silver.
