Caution:
Do not switch power off and on rapidly, as this interrupts the
normal power-up sequence. We advise waiting at least five
seconds between power cycles.

DIGITAL OUTPUTS
These outputs provide
either XLR-type or RCA-type connectors to a digital audio processor.
The XLR output conforms to the Audio Engineering Society/European
Broadcast Union (
for a 110Ω transmission of the DAS. Use a digital interconnecting cable spe-
cifically designed for the 110Ω
cable, when using this input, with pin assignments as indicated below:

It has been Madrigal's experience that the
offers the best quality of all digital transmission interfaces when fully opti-
mized, and we recommend its use wherever possible between Mark
Levinson components.
However, optimizing any electrical digital interface completely represents a
significant engineering challenge. It is entirely possible that a different type
of input may actually outperform a less-than-optimized
tion on some brands of digital components. For this reason, we have gone
to great lengths to fully optimize both of the digital outputs on the Nº39. If
you are using your Nº39 with a different brand of processor, we recom-
mend experimenting to determine which type of input on that component
results in the best audible performance.
The RCA output provides
with RCA-type connectors to the digital processor. It conforms to the Sony/
Philips Digital Interface Standard (
of the DAS. Use a digital interconnecting cable specifically designed for the
