Limited Time Offer: Trade in a Qualifying Stereo Component for up to 20% Off a New Mark Levinson No.585
Founded in 1972, the Mark Levinson® brand has become synonymous with extraordinary levels of audio performance and has a reputation in high-end audio design like no other. From that heritage comes perhaps the finest, most-accomplished integrated amplifier ever made: the No585. Combining Mark Levinson’s unsurpassed analog performance with advanced digital audio capability and flexible system configuration, the No585 pushes the reproduction of any source material to new levels of realism.
The foundation of the No585 is its fully discrete, mirror-imaged, dual-monaural analog circuitry featuring individual signal switching relays for each of its four stereo inputs: one XLR and three RCA. Volume controls use discrete 15-bit R-2R ladders and low-noise analog switches for the widest possible bandwidth and maximum signal integrity. The fully-differential Class AB power stage includes an oversized 900VA toroidal transformer with individual secondary windings for the left and right channels. Each elegantly simple amplifier channel utilizes twelve output transistors and multiple smaller local capacitors that allow them to be placed physically closer to the amplifiers for greater transient response when power is needed immediately. This robust architecture results in a conservative power rating of 200W per channel with stability into 2 ohms. System integration and expansion are possible using the stereo RCA preouts which can operate full-range or with an included switchable, second-order, 80Hz crossover filter allowing for seamless integration into 2.1-channel systems with powered subwoofers.
For a limited time only: Trade in a qualifying stereo component for up to 20% off a New Mark Levinson No.585. It's a fantastic way to upgrade the heart of your system. Audio Den is a proud Mark Levinson dealer.

The Best Options for Storing your Vinyl Collection
TAGS: HiPhile | Salamander Designs | Vinyl | Vinyl Storage
LP collectors all over the world often struggle with the same problem – where to store your ever-growing collection. Beginner collectors may be fine with one box or crate in their bedroom but serious audiophiles need expansive space to hold their equipment and records. Aside from actual square footage, collectors also need storage solutions that have the ability to hold a large number of LPs without space or weight limits. Anyone who has ever had to move his or her record collection knows the familiar lower-back pain that comes with the process.
There are plenty of great storage solutions out there in every different price range. And as collecting LPs becomes popular again, there will only be more options to come. From simple wood or plastic crates to elaborate spinning displays, there are lots of ways for fans to stash their vinyl. But before you run and grab the credit card, assess your collection and home space before you buy. Someone with a couple of Simon and Garfunkel records may not need as elaborate of a set-up as someone who has been collecting since the folk duo first premiered.
