Nº585

A behind the scenes look at the
Engineering Center of Excellence

Take a behind the scenes look at Mark Levinson's Engineering Center of Excellence. Our new No585 integrated amplifier is the very first product to be fully designed and engineered in our new facility in Shelton, Connecticut.

Introducing the No585
integrated amplifier

From Mark Levinson's heritage comes perhaps the finest, most-accomplished integrated amplifier ever made: the No585. Combining Mark Levinson’s unsurpassed analog performance with advanced digital audio capability and flexible system configuration, the No585 pushes the reproduction of any source material to new levels of realism.

Nº585

The foundation of the No585 is its fully discrete, mirror-imaged, dual-monaural analog circuitry featuring individual signal switching relays for each of its four stereo inputs: one XLR and three RCA. Volume controls use discrete 15-bit R-2R ladders and low-noise analog switches for the widest possible bandwidth and maximum signal integrity. The fully-differential Class AB power stage includes an oversized 900VA toroidal transformer with individual secondary windings for the left and right channels. Each elegantly simple amplifier channel utilizes twelve output transistors and multiple smaller local capacitors that allow them to be placed physically closer to the amplifiers for greater transient response when power is needed immediately. This robust architecture results in a conservative power rating of 200W per channel with stability into 2 ohms. System integration and expansion are possible using the stereo RCA preouts which can operate full-range or with an included switchable, second-order, 80Hz crossover filter allowing for seamless integration into 2.1-channel systems with powered subwoofers.
