Mark Levinson No.37 CD Transport With Original Manual - Freshly Serviced

$3,499

The Mark Levinson No.37 CD Transport and No.39 CD Player are our favorite players of all time.

Most likely because of their compact chassis, large bright display, prominent transport control buttons, and super sleek CD drawer design. They are also a dream to work on from a technical point of view. 

This example arrived to us with a non-functioning disc drawer as we often see after some 20 years of use. We installed fresh belts and it's now working perfectly. 

We also put it though a battery of stress tests to make sure the new owner gets another 20 years easy. 

On the back you'll find just about any connection you're ever likely to need, including XLR, AES/EBU, SPDIF, RCA, and my favorite - ST Optical. 

Pair this up with your favorite modern DAC and you'll have fantastic results.

Cosmetically it's very good with no signs of use or abuse. Just have a close look at our pictures.

It also comes with the original remote control, manual, and a power cord.

The SkyFi Testing Process for CD Players:

We start with a visual inspection of all internal components to make sure that there are no signs of heat stress or damage. Capacitors are checked for telltale signs of predictive failure including bulging, shrunken wrappers, or physical leakage. We also inspect resistors and other passive components for signs of overheating. When the unit is first powered on we check the drawer mechanism function.

After the visual inspection we connect the CD Player’s RCA outputs to our Sencore PA81 Power Analyzer which simulates a real world input impedance and allows us to monitor the output on an oscilloscope. We start with a test CD with precision test signals to verify proper output on both channels. If the CD player has balanced outputs these are also tested at this time. If this check passes, we move onto evaluation with actual music CDs. We listen for clicks, skips, and drops during playback. At this time we also check the transport functions including skip, ff, rw, play, pause, repeat, and programming if applicable. If the unit has a remote control, all remote control functions are verified.

If the CD player is capable of SACD playback we test its ability to read SACD layers on multiple discs including standard and hybrid SACDs. At this time we also check the unit’s digital outputs where applicable. If SACD layers are being properly read we should see the digital outputs mute during playback. On redbook CD playback we verify that each digital output maintains proper lock on our bench DAC.

After bench testing is completed, CD players are set up for testing on our long term test rig. During extended testing we make sure that unit can play through several different discs from beginning to end with no skips or lock ups.
