The No. 326s draws upon 4+ decades of design study from an illustrious stable of benchmark products and rewrites the book setting new standards in every measurable area. It conveys a musical truth few other preamps have ever provided in my system.
This unit has been the cornerstone of my main system. It has been used sparingly in rotation with a large collection of gear and is in near flawless condition (see photos).
I purchased a phono board upgrade not long after purchasing the unit, but never fully re-engaged myself in vinyl falling victim to the convenience of digital streaming. The phono upgrade ($1400) was never installed and is a user serviceable event. If you want me to install it, I can have my technician install it prior to shipping.
Additionally, I have a brand new remote included with the sale. It was a $500 purchase from Levinson to replace what I thought was a missing remote. The original reappeared before the new remote arrive and has never been used.
Pictures are worth a thousand words. You can see for yourself, the preamp is pristine. The factory box is also brand new from ML as the previous box fell victim to a 3rd grade science project. Argh!
