Mark Levinson?
 
Just wondering why there is no Mark Levinson section on this site? I'd love to share/exchange some insight on this line.

Thanks,

Tom

Tom...What is your favourite generation of ML. Eg. Mark days, Madrigal days, Harman Kardon days.

I loved the Madrigal days but sadly much of that gear now requires expensive servicing & recapping. The number of capacitors in No.33 or no.33H is many. :sigh:

Hi Steve,

I currently own a 38S preamp...I simply cant find anything I like to replace it, and the build quality is stunning. I never owned any ML cd players or amps but I do understand about the cap problems on earlier amps. A lot of the Levinson gear is highly acclaimed. I know their current offering is thin but they still make some damn nice equipment.

current setup:

ML 38S

JBL L300

Meridian G08.2

Adcom GFT-555II (for Pirate games!...I know, they stink)

Mcintosh MC 252

I'm a JBL fan for life.....The efficiency of the L300's is amazing....I barely put out 20-watts or so from the 252 to drive them to insane levels.

Thanks!

Tom

Hi Tom.... 38S :drool: :D I don't know much about the current HK generation except that it is different from the ML hay days.

ML has such a brand recognition. Unfortunately, the product mix is not as nice as it used to be. Also, lots of comments from owners in various sites about quality issues, lack of customer service and very expensive repairs.

This looks interesting.....If your loaded.

Tom... I'm open minded to a ML Forum, great avatar BTW :thumbsup:

Thanks for the reply Ivan. I'd part with anything....except my 300's!
