Mark Levinson has launched a new preamplifier and amplifier and showcased two new source players in a major expansion of its 5000 Series range. The new №5302 amplifier and №5206 pre-amplifier, along with the recently-introduced №5105 turntable and №5101 streaming player, are part of a major push for the brand from owner Harman.

Priced at £8,599, the №5302 is a bridgeable dual-monaural amplifier capable of 135W/channel in stereo mode and 275W in bridged monaural mode. Input connectors include a pair of balanced line-level XLRs and a pair of unbalanced phono RCAs. Output connectors are two pairs of high current multi-way binding posts and control is enabled via Ethernet and RS 232.

Stablemate dual-monaural preamp, the №5206, which retails for £8,599, offers four-stereo line-level inputs (two balanced XLR and two single-ended, using custom Mark Levinson RCA connectors) and a MainDrive headphone output, which employs a preamp output stage specifically designed with the current and power capacity to drive headphones directly.

For vinyl fans, the Mark Levinson №5105 premium turntable is built upon a solid aluminium plinth machined from a single billet. The iconic Mark Levinson hourglass knob design features as a record weight. The tonearm tube is 10-inch high-gloss back carbon fiber fused to a solid aluminum headshell with an integrated finger lift.

The new №5105 Turntable is priced at £5,799 without phono cartridge and £6,499 with a cartridge.

For all other sources, there’s the №5101 Streaming Player and CD spinner.
In addition to a Mark Levinson Precision Link II DAC, the new Nº5101 also boasts the latest generation ESS PRO Sabre 32-bit D/A converter with jitter elimination circuitry.

Sporting a bead-blasted, black-anodised, solid aluminum front panel, a sleek glass display and machined aluminum buttons, the player is priced at £5,500.
