I added a 585 integrated amp to my system a couple months ago and have been extremely happy with it. The built in DAC is way better than expected, I was initially sold on a more easy to use system for my wife, when in the end I got a huge improvement in sound quality over my old Krell S300i and PS Audio Nuwave DAC combo as well. I consider it to be about as perfect for a simple system as one can get, for a reasonable price.

The only "complaint" I have is for some reason they ML has decided to have their standby lights blink (two seconds on, two seconds off) when in standby mode instead of being constantly on. It doesn't really bother me, but just seems odd....

I'm all in for a Levinson forum, having owned quite a bit of their gear. Ivan would be a great representative for the brand.

Glad to see a Levinson forum here. Looks like the new Levinson products are back up to a very high standard. I do think they've gone a bit overboard with their pricing though.

Hopefully some more Levinson 52 owners will chime in here. That is a piece I'd really like to have in my system.
