Mark Levinson No 326s solid state stereo pre amplifier
Perfect working condition.
Very good physical condition. The front face plate looks new. There are a few marks/scuffs on the left side and a small mark on the top. I have tied to show all in the pictures.
The unit is 3 years old. I am the 3rd owner.
Reason for selling: I wanted to try a top quality SS preamp. As good as this preamp is I have decided I can’t live without tubes.
The unit will ship in original box and packing and will include reprinted manual, remote and a set of Levinson white handling gloves.
This unit is set for 120V
Will ship to confirmed PayPal address in the lower 48 USA only.
$4,250.00 includes PayPal fees and shipping to lower 48 USA

This is a great performing preamp that has glowing reviews.
From 10audio review:
“The Levinson 326S preamplifier has such a minor effect on the signal passing through that it does not warrant a more exploratory review. It does not sound like a solid state preamplifier nor like a tube preamplifier. There is no weakness in the bass, midrange, or treble. It sounds just as tight, powerful, fast, warm, rich, clear, extended, open, detailed, and 3-dimensional as the source requires. Dynamic impact is stunning. Of all of the preamplifiers I have tried, the 326S easily wins for the best user interface. The build quality of the preamp and remote control are a continuing source of pride and joy of ownership. Operation and reliability have been faultless.”
