For nearly 50 years, discerning individuals have chosen Mark Levinson products for their luxurious beauty and revealing sound. Robust materials, lavish finishes, bold geometry, and outstanding performance are celebrated attributes of the Mark Levinson brand. The Nº 5105 is a premium precision-engineered turntable that delivers on that reputation with an original custom design.
With its elegant motif, the Nº 5105 blends lustrous elements intrinsic to the acclaimed 5000 series while introducing new material combinations essential for its exceptional performance. No detail has been overlooked.
Like its 5000 series companions, the Nº 5105 features one- inch thick, bead-blasted, black-anodized, solid aluminum front panels that are machined and contoured to flow seamlessly into the sleek glass display. The tinted glass is recessed into a bead-blasted, clear-anodized aluminum bezel, with aluminum speed and standby control buttons to match. The iconic Mark Levinson hourglass knob design makes a cameo as a record weight: bead-blasted machined aluminum with a gently curved profile, mass-loaded with solid brass. This silhouette is echoed in the custom aluminum tonearm gimbal.
The custom 10-inch high gloss black carbon fiber tonearm tube is fused to a solid aluminum headshell with an integrated finger lift.
A 14 lb. solid aluminum platter suspended on a ground, hardened steel axle rotates on ultra-precise bearings. An oil-free bearing bottom made of a mix of composite material with integrated lubrication and a maintenance-free sintered brass bushing ensures reliable operation for years to come.
The nearly 2“ thick solid aluminum plinth is machined from a single billet and is suspended on three adjustable aluminum feet, each with a mixed-material internal suspension system while an integrated white bubble level aids in deck leveling.
The 12V synchronous motor‘s control signal is digitally generated; therefore, it exhibits no temperature drift, ensuring speed stability and low wow/flutter. The integrated wide-range power supply is designed for global use with 90-260 VAC and four included AC cables.
The signature platter mat and user guide are delivered stylishly in the Nº5105 12“ double LP gatefold jacket.
