The Mark Levinson ML-50 monoblock amplifier package includes a pair of monaural amplifiers that will be limited to only 100 pairs globally
HARMAN Luxury Audio’s Mark Levinson brand kicks off its 50th-anniversary celebration with the announcement of the limited-edition Mark Levinson ML-50 amplifier package – an exclusive creation limited to only 100 pairs globally.
MARK LEVINSON ML-50
The design echoes some of the most popular and important models of the brand’s history. In creating the ML-50 monaural power amplifier, the Mark Levinson team looked to its past to some of the most important monaural amplifiers that each especially influenced the design. The ML-50 model name itself calls back to the first Mark Levinson power amplifier – the ML-2 – produced from 1977 to 1986. The No 20 power amplifier and its updated models the No 20.5 and No 20.6 produced between 1986 and 1995 inspired the large front panel handles found on the ML-50. The No 33 (1994-2003) and No 33H (1997-2007) reference amplifiers sparked the idea of the outrigger feet that provide the solid foundation for the ML-50 chassis.
The concept of the glass front panel and red backlit Mark Levinson logo on the ML-5 is lifted from the No 53 reference amplifier built from 2008 to 2019. The No 536 amplifier (2015-present) became the starting point platform for the audio performance found in the ML-50.
Perhaps the most striking aspect of the ML-50 is the clear glass top cover that showcases the internal beauty of the circuit designs. Elevating the drama of the glass top cover, internal LED lighting casts a glow over the interior and can be switched between red, white, and off.
BALANCED XLR INPUTS
As a fully balanced design, the ML-50 offers balanced XLR and single-ended RCA audio jack inputs and two sets of Mark Levinson Hurricane binding post speaker terminals. Advanced internal protection and monitoring ensure reliable performance, while Ethernet, serial, and 12V trigger connections provide complete external control.
MARK LEVINSON ML-50 PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
Each Mark Levinson ML-50 amplifier package includes two monaural amplifiers and an accessory kit that includes two 3m power cords, a microfiber polishing cloth, white gloves, and owner’s documentation. The three cartons are vertically stacked on a wooden pallet base and protected with a triple-wall cardboard sleeve and banding straps.
The Mark Levinson ML-50 limited edition amplifier package will be available from select retailers in Q4 of 2022 at a retail price of $50,000 per system pair.
