Mark Levinson No.31 Reference CD Transport


In 1993, this reference unit cost a whopping $8,495, which today would be more than $15,000. To buy a transport of this quality today, you would have to spend almost $20,000. CDs have changed little since then, so there would be little benefit to buying a modern reference unit unless you want to burn your own MP3 CDs.

On the back you’ll find a highly rated 150MHz ST Glass Fiber interface. If you have a DAC with this type of input, be sure to use it see our Mark Levinson NO. 360S DAC with this capability  . In addition, Toslink, Coax and XLR digital connections are also available.
