MARK LEVINSON No23L 1,300,000yen(April, 1987 release)

Stereo power amplifier which made the performance of monophonic power amplifier No20L condense.

The RF noise includeded on AC line, and the high-pass filter and anti buzz circuitry for the measure against an asymmetrical current are adopted as the power-source part of a right-and-left independency. Moreover, the toroidal transformer which is proud of rated 1200VA is carried in the transformer by the right-and-left independency.

A mass filter capacitor and a power transistor are directly linked with an output stage by an oxygen-free-high-conductivity-copper bus bar, and also the purity of the power source is polished by adoption of the triple it1 by a quality capacitor.

In a voltage amplification cartridge and the driver stage, the two-step differential cascode circuitry and the stabilizing supply were adopted, and the output stage is always controlled by first class operation.

The balance input is also supported.

Bridge connection is possible and a using is possible also as monophonic amplifier.
