Mark Levinson No.360s DAC - 24-Bit, Quad Multibit, Burr-Brown PCM1704's

$2,999

This unit was upgraded by Mark Levinson to the greatest and best specification 360s at a substantial cost.

While it was a very expensive upgrade, it was well worth the price and benefited greatly by the addition of four PCM1704 multibit DAC chips. 

It represents the pinnacle of non Hi-Res Redbook CD performance and would be hard to beat even with the best players available today.

We just refreshed this unit, replacing a few components in need, and made sure its working 100% on our test bench and listening lab.

This listing includes the DAC itself and also a special 90 degree power cord.

Some additional details:

"The Mark Levinson 360S is based on the circuit topology of the 360, but as a special "S" version, it benefits from significant component upgrades. It offers a stunning level of improvement over the already exceptional sonic performance of the 360.

First, the 360 has two 32-bit DSP chips to handle digital filtering and decoding; the 360S has four. This means that the 360S has twice the computational power and is capable of a wider range of future software options, but this probably means little for current performance.

Second, while both have dual 24-bit DACs (Burr-Brown PCM1704) in each channel, the 360's output level matching is accomplished with high-tolerance Vishay potentiometers, while hand-calibrated bulk metal-foil resistors are mated (to a tolerance of +/- 0.0002%) to each of the 360S's DACs.

Third, the Mark Levinson 360S uses four-layer cyanate-ester printed circuit boards rather than the 360's two-layer fiberglass/epoxy boards.

Finally, the 360S has separate discrete regulators for left and right channels, and local reservoirs for critical components based on relatively rare OSCON caps."
