Mark Levinson â„– 519 hi res audio player launches in the UK

Harman’s Mark Levinson â„– 519 audio player will be shipping in the UK next month.

The No519 offers high res wired and wireless streaming, network, disc and nine digital inputs (including USB asynchronous streaming and mass storage, Gigabit Ethernet, Balanced, Optical, Coaxial, Wi-Fi and aptX Bluetooth).

The aluminium-housed player also provides headphone connectivity and integrated digital volume control, allowing it to be connected directly to a power amplifier or active loudspeakers. Selectable low-pass filtering furthermore enables unbalanced outputs to be used for subwoofer integration.

The â„– 519 supports high-resolution digital decoding up to 24-bit, 192kHz from PCM and double-speed DSD. Its DAC also features an ESS Sabre32 Reference converter.

The player can be operated from its front-panel colour display, remote control, Apple iOS and Google Android apps and all major web browsers.

The â„– 519 has an embedded Linux computer, featuring Spotify Connect, TIDAL, QOBUZ, Deezer, Rhapsody or Napster and a large library of internet radio stations and podcasts. For older libraries and lower resolution content, it incorporates Harman Clari-Fi music restoration technology to rebuild musicality and detail lost in the compression process.

“The â„– 519 lets music lovers enjoy music from nearly any source experience whether it’s the latest high-resolution streaming audio format, their CD collection or even from their mobile devices,” commented Jim Garrett, director of marketing and product management at Harman.

The Mark Levinson â„– 519 digital player will be available via distributor Karma-AV in the UK from February 2017 onwards.
