I've still got my JC-2.
John, it would seem that there's still some confusion over Mark Levinson (the man) and the company by the same name.


Best Regards,
TerryO

Yes, Abrax... doesn't seem to realize that Mark Levinson was LONG GONE when the 33 was introduced, but what can I do?

John - again, a distortion of your perception. And perhaps that of TerryO too. Perception is reality

Evidently, your perception is that you're right.
The reality is that you're not.

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble.
It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

Wrong. What's apparently evident to you is nothing more than your perception.

By which you mean your perception is I'm not. Perception is reality, remember?

Misinformation, in any form, is not appreciated on this forum, if I can help it. If it appears, I will at least try to rectify the misinformation with what I know.

The key point there John is 'if I can help it'. When a person's perception is distorted, they can't help it - at least in the short-term. Their reality is shifted, that's how things are for them. In the longer term, they can work to correct those distortions, when they're pointed out or because they're motivated to self-develop.

Mark Levinson is over 60 years old. What do you expect?

Abrax..., I presume that you think that my OPINIONS on audio reproduction are distorted. I am referring to slandering another person's actions. Your comment implied that Mark Levinson, the man, was involved with the ML 33 power amp, and I can't see how he could have been, since he left the company, years before, so far as I can tell. HK is mostly responsible for the 33, not Mark Levinson, the man, as they marketed it overseas, to the best of my knowledge. I might also be responsible for the CLASS A aspect of the design, as I designed the JC-3, which became the ML-2. It was the largest amp for its power rating, in the industry, so far as I know, for some time.
