Maria 800

Mark Levinson personally designed the Maria 800 to deliver a no compromise amplifier for speakers that require bi-amplification. The Maria 800 can also be operated in bridge mode to deliver 800 watts per channel, 2 channels.

The Maria 800 has fully programmable active crossovers with laboratory grade algorithms that enable precision tuning in .1dB increments required for bi-amplifying speakers without compromise.

The Mighty Cat™ Class D chipset is at the heart of all Maria Amplifiers . It is a DAC with an analog power output with a native resolution of 384kHz. Mighty Cat™ has the most elegant and shortest signal path possible, eliminating signal degradation by multiple chassis systems with many meters of cable, power supplies and loading issues

Mighty Cat™ has no audible noise. High output current and low output impedance enable Mighty Cat™ to drive all high-quality speakers with ease. Power supply regulation, a rare and costly feature of only a few pure analog amplifiers, is provided by a state-of-the-art SMPS (switching mode power supply), enabling rock-solid bass, astonishing punch and dynamics, and pin point imaging. Three analog inputs have one megohms input impedance, an innovation introduced by Mark Levinson, which eliminates the loading of analog source devices.
