The No5101 combines decades of superlative audio engineering with the latest technological advancements to deliver unmatched performance and value. With a bold new industrial design, the No5101 delivers luxurious fidelity with premium features and flexibility. Combining audiophile physical compact disc formats with modern high-resolution network streaming capabilities over Ethernet and WiFi, a standalone PrecisionLink II DAC, and expansive control features, the No5101 is a unique 3-in-1 solution.
The No5101 delivers outstanding digital audio capability with the Mark Levinson PrecisionLink II DAC. Five individual, ultra-low-noise voltage regulators, power an ESS Sabre 32-bit pro series D/A converter to unleash maximum performance. Proprietary jitter reduction circuitry and user-selectable digital filters—seven choices for PCM and four for DSD along with ample regulated power, enables the best possible digital reproduction.
The No5101 offers a variety of digital inputs, including one coaxial and one optical s/pdif; one USB-A for playback from a thumb drive or hard drive, a CD/SACD transport, and network streaming via WiFi or Ethernet. FLAC, WAV, AIFF, OGG, MP3, AAC and WMA, audio formats, and SACD, CD-A, CD-R, and CD-RW disc formats are supported.
Analog Output Stage
The No5101 utilizes proprietary Mark Levinson PurePath circuitry. Fully discrete, direct-coupled, dual-monaural line-level output circuitry delivers exceptional reproduction of the analog signal to the balanced XLR stereo outputs as well as the single-ended RCA connectors. The linear power supply and toroidal transformer with separate voltage regulators for the left and right channels provide a quiet, stable source of power for critical analog circuitry.
System integration and communication ports include IP (Ethernet), RS-232, IR input, and 12v trigger input. A newly designed, aluminum IR remote is included with the No5101. In addition, the Mark Levinson 5kontrol mobile application enables control from an available Android and IOS device, and drivers are available for major control systems.
Robust materials, lavish finishes, and bold geometry are hallmark attributes of Mark Levinson designs. The one-inch thick, bead-blasted, black-anodized, solid aluminum front panels are machined and contoured to flow seamlessly into the sleek glass display, which itself is recessed into a bead-blasted, clear-anodized aluminum bezel. With debossed top cover vents, a screen-printed logo, and machined aluminum buttons, no detail has been overlooked. The Mark Levinson No5101 is proudly designed, engineered, and precision-crafted in the USA.
