A Reference Caddie for Your High-Resolution Digital Playback Needs: Mark Levinson Nº 5802 Integrated Amplifier Includes PrecisionLink II DAC, Supports 2x DSD and MQA, Features Six Digital Inputs
Factory-Certified Unit Includes Full Manufacturer Warranty and Our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee
Connoisseur-level fidelity, authoritative control, and do-anything flexibility in a premier-class Mark Levinson integrated amplifier for well under five figures? You're not dreaming. Designed for reference digital performance, Nº 5802 makes it happen and makes one of the high-end industry's marquee names more accessible to a wider range of music lovers. Don't worry. Nothing about Nº 5802 is given short thrift. Nothing has been farmed out to outside suppliers or overseas manufacturers. All of the company's hallmark technology, trailblazing engineering, refined luxury, and elegant finishes remain in tact. And Nº 5802 is proudly handmade in the U.S.A.
Bolstered by a fully discrete trademarked PureDirect signal path, Nº 5802 serves as a PGA-caliber caddie to your high-resolution files and disc collection by handling them with utmost panache, white-glove care, and sensory-awakening processing. Equipped with the Mark Levinson PrecisionLink II DAC and four digital inputs, Nº 5802 supports up to 32-bit/192kHz and 2x DSD. Full MQA decoding and aptX HD Bluetooth further take care of your streaming needs. A unique single gain stage mated to a digitally controlled resistor network for volume adjustment maintains maximum signal integrity and wide-open bandwidth. Oh, and if you want to plug in ‘phones, a MainDrive headphone output employs a preamplifier output stage specifically designed with the current and power capacity to directly drive any pair you connect.
In Nº 5802's amplification stage, fully discrete, direct-coupled, Class AB amplifier channels are fueled by an oversized (500+ VA) toroidal transformer with individual secondary windings for the left and right channels. The voltage gain stage employs trickle-down topology directly from the acclaimed Nº 534 amplifier and gets mated to an output stage comprising two high-speed driver transistors. Two Thermal-Trak devices in a unique configuration guarantee stable output bias regardless of load or temperature. Four 10,000-microfarad capacitors per channel, located directly on the output stage circuit board, provide enough current for conservatively rated 125Wpc (eight ohms) and nearly 250Wpc at four ohms.
Nº 5802's fortuitousness extends to its digital connectivity, system integration abilities and Ethernet, USB, RS-232, IR input, and 12V communication ports. A total of six digital inputs – an AES XLR, one asynchronous USB 2.0, two coaxial, and two optical S/PDIF corroborate Nº 5802's status as a digital hub. A solid aluminum remote control, Mark Levinson web support, and stunning industrial looks complete an integrated amplifier that takes you into another musical dimension. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
"The Mark Levinson brand brings to mind the attributes of exhilaration, quality, longevity and musicality – and the Nº 5802 carries on this tradition. It is a welcome addition to the new 5000 generation of Mark Levinson products that is sure to introduce new customers to the brand portfolio – not just for the heritage but also for the sound."
