The Nº39 incorporates sophisticated inter-component communications capabilities
Making Link Connections
when Linked to compatible Mark Levinson components. (See "Communication
Ports" in Rear panel, Nº39.) If you own compatible Mark Levinson components,
connect them to the Nº39 with an eight-conductor modular cable as described
on p. 25. Y ou may find that you need to cycle power off and on once after mak-
ing this connection for the first time (if making the connection to a previously
operating component), in order to ensure that all components in the chain are
aware of each other's presence. Engaging
on the transport once from
will complete the Link connection by activating the communications bus between
the components. (When using a preamplifier, you must also name the appropri-
ate input "No39" as described in the preamp's manual in order to complete the

The Nº39 provides both balanced (via XLRs) and single-ended (via custom-made
Connecting Analog Outputs
Madrigal RCAs) analog outputs. Either set of outputs may be connected either to
a preamplifier or (with the variable output feature engaged) directly to a power
amplifier. It has been our experience that balanced interconnection provides su-
perior performance, particularly if long runs of cable are required.
Using appropriate cables, connect the appropriate outputs on your Nº39 to your
preamplifier or power amplifier.
