The Nº 5101 features outstanding digital audio capability with the Mark Levinson PrecisionLink II DAC. The latest generation ESS PRO 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. Five digital audio inputs are provided: one coaxial and one optical S/PDIF, and USB for playback of high-resolution PCM (up to 24 bit/192k, Network (WiFi and Ethernet) for streaming from a NAS drive which supports FLAC, WAV, AIFF, OGG, MP3, AAC and WMA, and an SACD input which supports disc formats including SACD, CD-A, CD-R and CD-RW.
The Nº 5101 utilizes proprietary Mark Levinson PurePath circuitry- a fully discrete, direct-coupled, dual-monaural line-level output circuit for exceptional reproduction of the analog signal, which is delivered to the balanced XLR stereo outputs as well as the single-ended RCA connectors. A linear power supply with an oversized toroidal transformer is employed to ensure the widest bandwidth and dynamic range possible.
Robust materials, lavish finishes and bold geometry are hallmark attributes of Mark Levinson designs. The one- inch thick, bead-blasted, black-anodized, solid aluminum front panels are machined and contoured to flow seamlessly into the sleek glass display, which itself is recessed into a bead-blasted, clear-anodized aluminum bezel. With debossed top cover vents, screen-printed logo, and machined aluminum buttons, no detail has been overlooked.
