Nº383

The Nº383 Integrated Amplifier was designed to offer the highest levels of performance and construction in situations where the size and complexity of a separate component amp/preamp system would prove impractical. Combining power-amplifier and preamplifier functions into a single chassis is a well-accepted approach to delivering high performance at the lowest cost. Typically, however, integrated components are thought of as compromises dictated by cost considerations. This does not have to be the case, as the Nº383 clearly illustrates. Rated at 100W per channel at 8 ohms, the Nº383 offers both balanced and single-ended inputs, dual-mono power supplies, a software-based user interface, and remote control.

Three independent power supplies provide clean, stable DC power to the Nº383’s various circuit elements. Separate power supplies for the left and right channels ensure that demand from one channel does not modulate the power supply of the other. This dualmono approach, which is used in Mark Levinson separates, contributes to stable stereo imaging and effortless reproduction of dynamic contrasts.
