During the early days of Mark Levinson Audio Systems, the company was known for their use of instrumentation-grade connectors, such as the miniature, locking-collar LEMO connectors (LEMO - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). These Swiss-made connector types were eventually subsumed into the CAMAC (Computer Automated Measurement and Control - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) connector standards.

The Mark Levinson ML Series Web page (ML1 : Preamplifier) has limited information available (product pictures, but no schematics). You could probably zoom-in on the pictures of the power-supply connectors and try to visually match them with current production CAMAC connectors. The Swiss company, W.W. Fischer, manufactures the CAMAC connectors; here's the URL for the Fischer-US Web site (Fischer Connectors | Circular Connector - Push-Pull Connector). The only source for CAMAC/Fischer connectors that I'm aware of is Newark (US - Electronic Components Distributor | Newark.com).

Mark Levinson Audio Systems was acquired during an "unfriendly takeover" by Madrigal Audio Laboratories (Mark Levinson, the man, was squeezed-out of the company during this corporate transition), which was subsequently absorbed into Harmon International Industries Group (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harman_...l_Industries); so, you might be able to inquire there (MarkLevinson - Home) about a replacement power-supply umbilical cable.

Good luck!

I, too, have an ML-1 and a PLS-151 power supply. Does anyone know where I can find the cable?

I haven't had any luck with the current Mark Levinson company, nor have I been able to identify the Fischer connector used.

Any wisdom would be greatly, greatly appreciated!

It's not a Fisher connector but a Lemo. It has four leads two for +/-15V and two for sensing. Ground is carried by the shield.

Thanks, Kevin, that was close! They only have ten types, and they aren't exactly correct. Mine look like this:

It's a Lemo #2 on the PLS150 but your picture shows the Fisher connector. I am sorry for misinformation I gave.

Default Need help ASAP!

Hi again everyone. I still haven't found a cable to go between my ML-1 preamp and PLS-151 power supply, but I just spotted this on eBay:

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

Is this likely what I need?

Or is this the cable that goes from the power supply to the wall? The seller hasn't responded to my inquiries (seems to be a technical glitch), and I don't want to let this slip by if it's the right one. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
