Mark Levinson No.5302 Dual Monaural Amplifier

 The No.53 is not a class-D amplifier. While the original rationale for the class-D technology was its efficiency—lightweight, cool-running amps that could produce a great deal of power—the No.53 is big and heavy, resembling the No.33—and it runs warm even at idle. It weighs 135 lbs, with claimed outputs of 500W RMS into 8 ohms or 1000W into 4 ohms, 20Hz–20kHz, at no more than 0.1% total harmonic distortion.

Product Highlights:

  • Frequency Response: Within ±0.1dB from 10Hz to 20kHz
  • Input Impedance: 100 kΩ (balanced); 50 kΩ (unbalanced)
  • Height: 20.87 in (530mm)
  • Width: 8.42 in (214mm)
  • Depth: 20.4 in (518mm)
  • Weight: Net weight: 135 lb (61.3kg); Shipping weight: 165 lb (75kg)
  • Communication and Control: Two Link2 ports (one input and one output); One Ethernet port; One 3.5mm mono (tip/sleeve) mini plug trigger input, 3-12Vdc; One 3.5mm mono
  • tip/sleeve) mini plug trigger output, 3-12Vdc; 3-Pin IEC standard power connector
  • Inputs: One balanced XLR input; One unbalanced RCA input
  • Rated Output Power Into 4 Ohms: 1000W
  • Rated Output Power Into 8 Ohms: 500W
  • Gain: 26.8dB
  • Power Requirements: 100V~, 120V~, 230V~, 640W, factory-set for destination country

Mark Levinson's innovations
The No.53 uses what Mark Levinson calls a patented, multistage "very high speed switching amplifier technology," Interleaved Power Technology (IPT), which is claimed to offer significant advantages over prior switching-amp topologies.
