No intro needed here. This is one of the finest sounding solid state amp for under $10,000. Pair any speaker with it and you will hear the immense power behind it. And with that immense power, you will hear a larger, deeper and better defined soundstage. Bass was tighter with more authoritative control and the mids and highs were smooth and well extended. Compared to its older “3-series” amps (which were benchmark components in their own rights), the 532H shares many of the same attributes but with improved refinement and smoothness. Truly wonderful stuff. Stereophile recommendation is enthusiastically endorsed by us! Power output is 300W in 8 ohms and amp weighs a hefty 74lbs unboxed.
Cosmetically, the heavy duty amp looks really good. Just minor scuff marks from use and the usual “crack” on the plastic twist caps that sits over the metal speaker binding posts. This has been a common issue across all Levinson amps because it is a real bad design (they do sell replacement caps for it) but works with no issue nonetheless. It still tightens nicely and if you use banana plugs then there is no issue. We have the original box. Local pickup from our store welcomed.
