Mark Levinson No 326s Preamp [Expired]


no longer for sale

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 sound.
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 improved isolation."
