With a single-chassis design, the N°326S achieves separation of audio circuit, control circuit, and power supply sections similar to that of the dual-chassis N°32. The internal structure of the N°326S separates these sections, while a steel shield box protects the power supply and other circuits against electrostatic and magnetic interference. Filtered AC power is routed outside audio circuit sections, providing audio circuits with the quiet, shielded environment essential for superior sound.
Like most high-performance audio components, the N°326S relies on clean, noise-free AC power to deliver maximum performance. Unfortunately, most AC power does not meet these standards. Common household appliances such as refrigerators, TVs, and computers often contaminate AC power lines with line noise, spikes, and other irregularities that make it difficult for audio circuits to perform up to their full potential.
To compensate for this, the N°326S offers a series of highly effective noise suppression and isolation techniques that begin filtering AC power for noise as soon as it enters the chassis. Audio and control circuit sections use independent power supplies, each with its own low-noise toroidal transformer. The audio circuit power transformer includes a Faraday shield between the AC power line and low-voltage secondaries for improved isolation.
Following the Mark Levinson tradition, the N°326S exceeds all reasonable expectations for a stereo preamplifier. Its flexible design including seven configurable inputs, separate main and record output connectors and complete surround sound processor integration allow it to accommodate a wide range of demands. Additionally, a series of advanced techniques shield the audio circuits, resulting in an incomparable sound befitting sophisticated music reproduction systems
The 326S is a significant improvement over older Levinson preamps in terms of transparency and resolution. For more information on the sound quality of the No. 326S, please refer to the many professional reviews of this unit that can be found on the internet and in print. To name a couple, Stereophile’s review was in their January 2006 issue, while TAS’ review was in their April/May 2006 issue (#161).
This particular No. 326S is serial #9800002399 . It is in flawless condition The unit will ship in its original packaging. Original owner’s manuals for the preamp are included in addition to the remote, which has no flaws, and the original power cable.

This particular No. 532H is serial #9800007664 . It is in flawless condition The unit will ship in its original packaging. Original owner’s manuals for the amp are included, and the original power cable.
External Simplicity and Inner Beauty
The matte-black No.532H ($8500) is the most no-nonsense stereo amplifier in the HPAV line. Its monotone black chassis differs from its more expensive stablemates, the No.532 stereo amplifier ($20,000) and the No.53 Reference monoblock ($25,000 each). These flagship products have prominent external heatsinks and black and silver accents. The No.532H is almost identical in size to the No.431, which I reviewed in 2005, being only 9mm less deep and 21 lbs lighter; it's also 100Wpc more powerful and $1500 more expensive.

I will accept payment by money order or check. Sorry, no PayPal on this item. Local pickup with cash is also welcome. I prefer to ship within the USA only. please note that this unit is configured for 120V 60 Hz incoming AC power.)
