CES & THE Show 2014 Hot Product
The No.383 integrated amp was one of Mark Levinson's most renowned products, both for its sonics and ergonomics. Coming this summer is its successor, the new No.585 ($12,000), which adds 32-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog conversion to the No.383's host of features.
The No.585 combines 200Wpc power output (into 8 ohms, 350 watts into 4 ohms), single-ended and balanced analog inputs, and six digital inputs, including USB, optical, coaxial and AES/EBU. Special features include DSD processing via USB and a subwoofer output with a selectable 80Hz high-pass filter for use in a 2.1-channel system. The No.585 has an easy-to-read red-LED display, same as the No.383.
In the center rear of the chassis is a recess for a Signal Doctor board. What the AMA is Signal Doctor? It's a "predictive system" that improves the fidelity of all kinds of compressed music files, and based on a demo we heard, it certainly works. You'll be hearing much more about it.
