Want to know what is so special about the Mark Levinson ML-50? The design of the monotone amplifiers echoes some of the most popular models that Mark Levinson offered before. 

The team looked back at the past and took some of the design cues of the most critical amplifiers that played a role in audio history.

Nonetheless, the clear glass top is the most striking aspect of the Mark Levinson ML-50. It showcases the internal beauty of the ML-50.

There are internal LED lights inside that cast a glow over the interior, which you can turn white, red, or off if you want to. The Mark Levinson ML-50 integrates enhanced power supply and audio circuits of the No 536 platform.

Hardware engineers of Mark Levinson started to design the internal by creating a lower noise floor. They achieved it by decreasing the high-voltage supply capacitance by 50%.

Furthermore, the team has lowered the distortion of the monoblock amplifier by doubling the output stage bias. 

Eventually, the team ended up with more than quadrupling the amount of Class A power. The overall Class AB power also saw an increase. And through all these upgrades, the amplifier offers the highest objective and subjective performance levels.

The Mark Levinson ML-50 also comes with the most upgrade isolation feet. They aim to provide the most stable platform possible. And that eventually enhances the audio performance. 

The new vibration-damping, which is mechanically isolated, foot design is at the four corners of the chassis.

Moreover, the Mark Levinson ML-50 offers a fully balanced XLR and single-ended RCA inputs. There are two sets of binding post-speaker terminals.

Also, you will find internal protection and monitoring circuits. These ensure reliable overall performance.

Finally, there are 12V trigger connections to offer you complete external control. And you will also find an Ethernet port among the ports of the ML-50. 

Overall, the monotone amplifier is indeed one-of-a-kind. And if you have the chance to experience it first-hand, you should not let the opportunity get away.

Slava is a man of mystery and no-one seems to know exactly where he is at any point in time. When he isn't enjoying writing about all things audio and technical he can be found researching his next project of interest. The man never rests.
