Mark Levinson Digital Front End No.36S and No.37
« on: January 16, 2018, 11:55:14 AM »
For Sale: Mark Levinson No. 37 Digital Transport and Mark Levinson No. 36S DAC Combination Digital Front end
Condition: Mint same as in picture
Location: Pretoria east - Auditions by appointment only
Shipping: Unfortunately not due to weight and risk
Price: R39 000

*Please note the 380S pre-amplifier is NOT FOR SALE.

This digital system will forever be collectable and the sound remains among the best comparable to the likes of Wadia and dCS. Mark Levinson (Madrigal Laboratories) is one of the few Ultra High end brands in the world that has appreciated in value. There are plenty of reviews on Google should you be in to that, however let your ears do the listening. I have a state of the art streaming system and you will always need a transport as long as media is still available on CD, not to mention the added value that boutique DACs bring to your system.

Are these sold strictly as a pair? I already have the #36

Hi Rick, I was not going to, but seeing someone asked for the 36S I can split up the set, you can have the transport and he can have the DAC.

I might have a 380S for sale in the not too far distant future.

I have a 380 for now, have not heard the 380S, is it a mild or massive upgrade?

Hi Rick,

I PM ed the buyer for the DAC. I am willing to split the set as follows:

No. 36S DAC R24 000
No. 37 Transport R15 000

My Only condition is that I have buyers for both before I break up this set.

To the gentlemen that offered to take both, unfortunately I will only sell to the buyer in person, no courier pick ups!!

To whoever bought Ben's ML335, sjoe!! If the budget allows you should pounce, don't think you will ever get another chance like this!!

Thank you, and please don't be shy to pick up the phone and call me with any questions.

Thank you,
Morne

Thank you Morne

Although that is a fantastic price and offer, I need to pass on this one for now.

Significant. Went from 38s to 380 and then the 380s.

I felt it was worth it.
Not that the 380 is a slouch. Not at all. It is also superb.
But the 380s is better.
