Default Mark Levinson introducing their 40th Anniversary Collection from enjoythemusic.com

Harman-owned brand Mark Levinson celebrates 40 years of the world’s best audio Systems by introducing their 40th Anniversary Collection At CES 2012. The new models include the Mark levinson № 52 Reference dual monaural preamplifier ($25,000), № 585 integrated amplifier ($10,000), No 519 SACD player ($8000) and № 560 digital audio processor ($6000). Every component in The 40th Anniversary Collection is designed to reproduce music with all of its nuances and subtleties -- as well as thrilling dynamic authority and power. Mark Levinson's № 52 (pictured above) is the finest all analog Mark Levinson preamplifier ever. Internal circuitry is true dual-monaural with a two-chassis configuration that separates the critical analog audio circuitry from the control section to maintain the purest signal paths possible. The № 52 provides a comprehensive complement of inputs including three balanced XLR and four unbalanced RCA line-level inputs, and a dedicated phono input that is selectable for moving coil (MC) or moving magnet (MM) operation. Two sets of XLR and RCA stereo preamplifier outputs are provided, along with an auxiliary pair of XLR and RCA outputs that can be configured for fixed or variable level output with independent source selection.
The Mark Levinson № 585 integrated amplifier offers three analog line-level audio inputs plus an MC/MM phono input and six digital audio inputs. The № 585 produces 225 watts per channel power output into 8 Ohms and provides a dedicated subwoofer output. The № 585’s analog circuitry is optimized and it incorporates 32-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog converters for digital audio performance. The Mark Levinson No 585 includes HDMI 1.3, USB, AES/EBU and coaxial S/PDIF inputs, and provides USB and S/PDIF digital outputs. A host of onboard sonic tailoring facilities are provided including full bass management with high-pass filtering, low-pass crossover controls for the subwoofer output and more. The № 585’s unity gain SSP mode enables easy integration with home theater systems, and the № 585 offers a full complement of system control ports.
Mark Levinson's № 519 SACD player combines a precision CD/SACD (Super Audio Compact Disc) player mechanism with dual 32-bit/192kHz audiophile-grade digital to analog converters. Adding to its versatility, the № 519 also functions as a complete digital preamplifier. It includes four S/PDIF and USB digital inputs, plus XLR and RCA analog and HDMI 1.3, AES/EBU, optical and coaxial S/PDIF outputs and an onboard digital volume control that enable the № 519 to be connected to a stereo or multichannel preamplifier or amplifier. In addition, the № 519 provides direct SACD audio output via its HDMI connection as well as high-resolution LPCM digital audio. The Mark Levinson № 519’s elegant front panel features dedicated input and volume control knobs, facilitating its use as a digital preamplifier, and includes a USB 2.0 connector to enable future upgrades. Its Ethernet, ML Link, 12V trigger and IR ports enable easy system integration, and the № 519 is supplied with a remote control that operates all its functions as well as those of select Mark Levinson preamplifiers.
The Mark Levinson № 560 can serve as the heart of a digital audio music system. The Mark Levinson № 560 enables listeners to enjoy the full sonic benefits of computer audio, disc transports, streaming media devices and other digital sources thanks to its dual 32-bit, 192kHz premium digital to analog converters, digital volume control and impeccable engineering and construction. The № 560 provides no less than 10 digital audio inputs including two optical and two coaxial S/PDIF inputs, three USB 2.0 connectors, two HDMI inputs with DSD (Direct Stream Digital)-direct capability and an AES/EBU XLR input. The No 560’s XLR and RCA analog outputs facilitate connection to an amplifier or preamplifier. Mark Levinson's № 560 incorporates isolated digital and analog circuitry with independent power supplies, asynchronous clocking to ensure jitter-free performance from the dual 32-bit DACs, premium quality internal components throughout and many additional enhancements.
