What else to know about the Mark Levinson No. 334?

"The No.334's minor physical changes gave me no hint of its major sonic improvements over the No.331, the more powerful No.334 turned out to be far superior in bass slam, dynamics, and definition. It accurately conveyed instrumental timbre, provided resolution of fine musical detail, and created a "lush, opulent, billowing soundstage" (footnote 4). Its bass response is the best I have heard from a Mark Levinson stereo amplifier. It will be a sad day here when the No.334 amplifiers leave.

Unabashedly expensive at $5990, the No.334 proved its worth in coaxing the very best performance from different loudspeakers in my listening room. My enthusiasm was not diminished when a single No.334 ran out of steam playing percussion music on a pair of Revel Salons. For large loudspeakers in demanding listening rooms like mine, one could purchase two No.334 amplifiers for biamplification, or choose the more powerful, 350Wpc No.336. But for most music, a single No.334 in stereo had more than enough bass slam.

The No.334's higher power rating, increased ability to render dynamic musical contrasts, and outstanding build quality have earned it a strong Class A rating from me. I'm certain that it would have made my father smile." - Stereophile, Greenhill
