MARK LEVINSON ML-7AL L2 card equipment: 1,650,000yen(1986 release)
L3 / L3A card equipment: 1,850,000yen(1986 release)

Control amplifier which added the enhancement which also amounts to 105 places based on ML-7L, and was developed.

The cross interferencee is suppressed, while the main-unit part (ML-7AL) and the power-source part (PLS-154L) serve as a design which dissociated and became independent and realize low-impedance-ization by three buslines of a plus-or-minus grounding.

Each part is using careful selection materials, such as cosmic rays and Military Standard of the aircraft, abundantly until it results in a volume or a tape-alternation relay. The high Teflon capacitor of the vibration proof by Military Standard is adopted as the weight RIAA path especially on the Phono stage.

"8PIN type" with little tone-quality property transition by extraction and insertion which has very little resistor of a contact is adopted as the contact button of the card which constitutes each stage. Moreover, while installing a heat sink in each card and attaining a stabilization of an element, strength improvement to an extraneous vibration is planned.

To the I/O board, lead wire is controlled by simple-ization put into practice using the four-layers substrate etc. to the minimum.

L3 plug-in card of high gain and L3A plug-in card which can link MC cartridge directly are prepared for phone amplifier as an option.
