Mark Levinsonから、「 5000 series 」登場!!No5805,No5802

海外ニュース速報 [World] 新製品速報

Mark Levisnon Nº5805  Nº5802

Nº5805 MSRP  $8,500
Nº5802 MSRP  $7,000

available in first quarter 2019

HARMAN’s Mark Levinson today introduced the first two models from the new 5000 series, the № 5805 and № 5802 integrated amplifiers. The Mark Levinson 5000 series amplifiers deliver renowned Mark Levinson luxury and fidelity at an exceptional value.

“The Nº5805 and Nº5802 were created to deliver all of the performance and quality expected from Mark Levinson while implementing state of the art features and efficiencies gained from decades of superlative audio engineering and technological advancements,” said Jim Garrett, Senior Director, Product Strategy & Planning, HARMAN Luxury Audio. “Proudly designed, engineered and precision crafted in the USA, the 5000 series looks great, sounds amazing, and is re-defining performance expectations.”

The foundation of the Nº 5805 is its patent-pending, fully discrete, direct-coupled, dual-monaural line-level preamp circuitry. A unique single gain stage mated to a digitally controlled resistor network for volume adjustment maintains maximum signal integrity and widest possible bandwidth. Each of its three stereo line level inputs—one balanced XLR and two single-ended, using custom Mark Levinson RCA connectors—has its own individual high-reliability signal switching relays. Like the 500 series components, the Main Drive headphone output employs a preamp output stage specifically designed with the current and power capacity to drive headphones directly, in Pure Class A, without a separate headphone amp. The № 5805 also includes newly designed MM/MC phono stage with front panel selectable gain levels and infrasonic filters, and rear panel capacitive and resistive loading settings.

Building upon this superb analog platform, the Nº 5805 adds equally outstanding digital audio capability through the Mark Levinson Precision- Link II™ DAC. The latest generation ESS Sabre 32-bit D/A converter with jitter elimination circuitry and a fully balanced, discrete current-to-voltage converter form the heart of the digital audio processing stage. Four digital audio inputs are provided: one coaxial and two optical S/PDIF, and one asynchronous USB for playback of high resolution PCM (up to 192kHz/32 bits) and DSD (up to DSD 5.6) files. A powerful XMOS USB audio processor also decodes and renders MQA-encoded files.

The № 5802 is an all-digital integrated amplifier featuring the same Precision- Link II™ DAC expanded to six digital audio inputs: One AES, two coaxial and two optical S/PDIF, and one asynchronous USB for playback of high resolution PCM (up to 192kHz/32 bits) and DSD (up to DSD 5.6) files. The Nº 5802 includes MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) technology, which enables play back of MQA audio files and streams. A Bluetooth receiver equipped with AptXHD enables the highest quality Bluetooth playback available.

Both amplifiers feature fully discrete, direct-coupled, class AB amplifier channels powered from an oversized (500+ VA) toroidal transformer with individual secondary windings for the left and right channels. The voltage gain stage employs a topology directly descended from the acclaimed Nº 534 amplifier, which is mated to an output stage comprising two high-speed driver transistors operating in class A and six 260V, 15A output 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, easily provide enough current for a conservative 125W/channel at 8 ohms, 250W/channel at 4 ohms, and stable operation down to 2 ohms.

Robust materials, lavish finishes and bold geometry are hallmark attributes of Mark Levinson designs. Both amplifiers use one-inch thick, bead-blasted, black-anodized, solid aluminum front panels, machined and contoured to flow seamlessly into the sleek glass display, which itself is recessed into a bead-blasted, clear-anodized aluminum bezel.

The iconic hourglass knobs are machined with a gently curved profile softly transitioning into a rounded front, beat-blasted and clear anodized, with feet to match. With debossed top cover vents, screen-printed logo and legends behind the glass panel, and machined aluminum buttons, no detail has been overlooked. A specially designed 5000 Series aluminum IR remote control is included with both models.

System integration and communication ports on the 5000 series models include Ethernet, USB, RS-232, IR input, and 12V trigger input and output. A newly designed, solid aluminum IR remote is included with the Nº 5805. Finally, an internal webpage allows setup, import and export of configurations, and software updates using a PC and standard web browser. In addition, drivers will be available for major third-party control systems.

The Nº5805 and Nº5802 will be available in first quarter 2019 at MSRPs of $8,500 and $7,000 respectively.

Sonusfaberから、「 ELECTA Amator III 」登場!!35周年記念!!!

Sonus faber ELECTA Amator III

10,000euro 予価

Continuing our 35th Anniversary
with the new ELECTA Amator III
To debut at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest
2018 marks the 35th Anniversary for Sonus faber. Our anniversary celebration started when we welcomed the month of May with the launch of our Sonetto Collection – a declaration of “Made in Italy” representing the world of Italian tradition, culture and craftsmanship.

Today, we continue the celebration of this milestone by appreciating our ongoing commitment to constantly evolving while drawing inspiration from the past. For 35 years, Sonus faber has been a name synonymous with performance excellence, unique product details and recognizable sound – all of which comes together in our latest creation – ELECTA Amator III. A reimagined special edition we hope will be welcomed with the same expectation and emotion experienced through designing it.

The new 2-way loudspeaker is a gem of Italian expertise and craftsmanship: a small but precious speaker that inherits the characteristics of ELECTA Amator (1987) and ELECTA Amator II (1997), two of our models that contributed most to the international success of our heritage brand.

We identify ELECTA Amator III as the last step in the evolution of our tradition, a process that first began in 2017 with the introductions of our Homage Tradition Collection followed by our flagship Aida and continued into 2018 with the Sonetto collection and Gravis subwoofer.

Sonus faber will celebrate 35 years of music at this year’s Rocky Mountain International Audio Fest taking place October 5 – 7th at the Denver Marriott Tech Center (4900 S. Syracuse St. Denver, Colorado) with special Sonus faber activations in rooms 5002 and 5024. We hope you can join us as we introduce ELECTA Amator III to the world.

ELECTA Amator III comes in one finish and will be available starting from November 2018 in Europe and December 2018 in Asia and North America.
