For sale is my Mark Levinson No326s which is now 4.5 years old. I am the second owner and have owned it for 4 of those years. This unit operates perfectly and is in excellent condition. Was Highly recommended by both Stereophile and TAS and at this price is really going to be difficult to beat. I upgraded to the No52 Ref. Had compared it to the No523, No52 Ref and ARC Ref6. While all of those other preamps are better they are also at a minimum 3.5X more than what this one is listed at and it wasn't embarrassed by any means. I ran it with a pair of McIntosh MC601s and it sounded amazing. Ran it with my new No536s for a while as well and it sounded great there too. This unit is the linestage only thus does NOT have the phono card in it. It will ship in the original Mark Levinson double box set with all original packaging minus the plastic bag that I ripped beyond using when unboxing. Shipping is free to CONTUS Happy to answer any questions.
Below is the description off of the Mark Levinson website ...
"With a single-chassis design, the N°326S achieves separation of audio
circuit, control circuit, and power supply sections similar to that of
the dual-chassis N°32. The internal structure of the N°326S separates
these sections, while a steel shield box protects the power supply and
other circuits against electrostatic and magnetic interference. Filtered
AC power is routed outside audio circuit sections, providing audio
circuits with the quiet, shielded environment essential for superior
Like most high-performance audio components, the N°326S relies on clean,
noise-free AC power to deliver maximum performance. Unfortunately, most
AC power does not meet these standards. Common household appliances
such as refrigerators, TVs, and computers often contaminate AC power
lines with line noise, spikes, and other irregularities that make it
difficult for audio circuits to perform up to their full potential.
To compensate for this, the N°326S offers a series of highly effective
noise suppression and isolation techniques that begin filtering AC power
for noise as soon as it enters the chassis. Audio and control circuit
sections use independent power supplies, each with its own low-noise
toroidal transformer. The audio circuit power transformer includes a
Faraday shield between the AC power line and low-voltage secondaries for
