Default Is Mark Levinson a constructor?

Has ML constructed anything? When I look at the history I saw John Curl and later Tom Colangelo up to the time with Cello. Now at RRM there is Victor Tiscareno with his tube electronics and they buy Korsun from China and label it RRM.

Has ML constructed anything?

Lightbulb Mr. Mark Levinson

Hi reinhard,
No he is not a constructor but he has very good ears. He simply established the Mark Levinson Company in Woodbridge, Connecticut, USA.
The Mark Levinson JC-2 was my first good sounding preamplifier.
See the Marklev website for a wealth of information about the subject.

I have no first hand knowledge but my friends who do say ML is a business man and like many other audio front figures has zero design knowledge.

He has still been successful, though

I've read that he's a musician - plays bass.

Mark Levinson has been quite successful at all the things he touches....

Recently, he has been exploring sex with famous Kim Kattral (from Sex and the City) and co-authored a book with Kim called Satisfaction.

Thus, we can say that Mark is a hell of a muff diver, in addition to being a great aufiophile.....

Recently as in 2002, ML is or was married to the Kattral woman.
Me, i'd have a hard time talking to the world about my turbo tongue.
At this rate, Marky Mark ends up in the hard core industry before retirement.
I had the notion that Mr Levinson has been rather UN-succesfull in the areas his name is mainly associated with. (mildly put)

My ex-galpal and I were browsing through the local erotic boutique when she happened on a book: "Satisfaction: The Art of the Female Orgasm". She said: "Holy smokes, it's Kim Cattrall!" I looked at it and said: "Who's Kim Cattrall? Mark Levinson? You gotta be kidding!"

They split up only two years after writing the book, ironically enough.

I think this has gone as far as good taste allows.
