World Class Synergy

To achieve the stunning design and performance of the 515, Mark Levinson partnered with VPI Industries, renowned for turntable innovations and exceptional build quality. The 515 Turntable is handcrafted in the USA to meet the exacting demands of the engineers and designers at Mark Levinson.

Unrivaled Build Quality

The 515 is based on a highly damped vinyl-wrapped composite and aluminum sandwich main chassis. The chassis is supported by machined Delrin and Aluminum Mark Levinson feet with a vibration-damping polymer core. The solid Aluminum platter rotates on an inverted bearing, which employs a hardened stainless steel shaft spinning in a phosphor bronze bushing for maximum rotational accuracy.

Optimized Drive System

The powerful high torque AC synchronous motor is mounted to a separate vinyl-wrapped composite and Aluminum sandwich chassis and housed in its own mechanically isolated enclosure. A precision-machined pulley and triple belt drive system provide smooth, quiet operation. A custom-designed, low-distortion analog oscillator and discrete, class AB power amplifier deliver pristine power to the synchronous motor, while integrated electronic speed control delivers accurate 33 and 45 RPM operation at the push of a button.

Custom Features

The 515 features a gimbal-mounted, 3D-printed tonearm with integral headshell, stainless steel counterweight, and discrete internal cartridge lead routing. The tonearm is mounted to a rigid machined Aluminum arm base featuring a precision calibrated vertical tracking angle with on the fly adjustment. The Mark Levinson "knob inspired" stainless steel record weight and felt platter mat ensure maximum stability of playback.

First Class Analog Source

Created for the discriminating analog music lover, the 515 is the perfect complement to the Pure Phono stage included in the 526 and 523 preamplifiers. The 515 turntable will be available either with or without a factory installed moving coil phono cartridge.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
