Today’s displays are loaded with features, some of which affect image quality, and most of which are aimed at convenience and ease-of-use. But, the only meaningful way to separate the good from the bad is by looking at color accuracy. Now that is a term that is often written but rarely explained.

I just had the good fortune to review a system comprising two cutting-edge Mark Levinson products – the No515 turntable and the No585.5 integrated amp. The No515 was fitted with an Ortofon Cadenza Bronze MC cartridge on its 3D-printed, Gimbaled tonearm. The high torque AC motor drives three belts that provide precise speed control. The deck also has excellent isolation properties and a full set of calibration controls.
