Mark Levinson is no stranger to high-end, high-priced audio. So even though there’s no pricing available for its No532 Dual Monaural Power Amplifier, you can bet it’s going to cost a pretty penny—a lot of them.
That’s because this big boy is large and in charge—of your entire audio experience, anyway. The unit features two 400-watt monaural power amplifiers packed inside one powerhouse of a chassis.
Of course, that casing has its own deal too. From above, you can marvel over your media giant, checking out the unit’s three piers; one has control and power circuitry and the others have audio—one dedicated to each channel. Power transformers are located in the front, away from the audio circuits.
The company also has plenty to say about the voltage regulator circuitry and toroidal power transformers, which promise distortion-free power and crystal-clear sound. Expect both RCA and XLR connectors, a 12-volt trigger, and Mark Levinson’s proprietary ML Net and Link2 inter-device communication protocols.
The No532 Dual Monaural Power Amplifier is now available.
