Luxury audio manufacturer Mark Levinson continues to roll out new and upgraded products all the time. In this case, they have taken a very successful platform in the No585 integrated amplifier and made significant improvements to it. The result is the improved and upgraded No585.5 integrated amp which now features a built-in high fidelity phono stage.
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.
PSB M4U TW1 Earphones are all-new wireless in-ear monitors with the latest Bluetooth technology. They look strikingly handsome with a sound quality that is engaging and non-fatiguing. They are also very comfortable, secure-fitting, and water-resistant.
The Legacy Foundation Subwoofer has dual 12” active drivers mated to a pair of 12” super long throw passive radiators. The sub is powered by an ICEpower® Class D amp that can pump out 30 amperes of current (1,000 watts power rating). The cabinet design is like a tower which maintains a small footprint.
