The Story of Mark Levinson

Mark Levinson Audio Systems Ltd. was founded in Woodbridge, CT by Mark Levinson in 1972. The legendary audio pioneer Dick Burwen was Levinson’s first electronics mentor and helped Levinson start the company with the iconic LNP-2 PreAmp. With unerring commitment to quality sound reproduction, Mark Levinson essentially created the ‘elevated performance’ category identified as “Hi-End” audio.
