What else to know about the Mark Levinson JC-2?
"The Mark Levinson JC-2 is designed by John Curl which it's design is of Class A circuitry. Levinson claims the desgin is extremely stable, utilizing very low feedback, thus eliminating TIM (transient-intermodulation) distortions. The JC-2 is powered by a remote power supply, again one of Levinson's ""attention to detail"" efforts to build the perfect preamp. The JC-2 is clean-crystal clean. It does not add any grain or hash to the upper midrange and high frequencies and yet it mirror-images the frequencies, details and dynamics of any signal that is processed through it.
Mark Levinson spared no effort to make the JC-2 the best preamp. The JC-2 has less apparent coloration than any other available. The top end, while assertive, is not aggressive. The lows never sounded more controlled than before. It is a solid-state pre-amplifier that in many ways, rivals the performance of the best tubed units and in serveral ways, actually surpasses the reference standard, the Audio Research SP-3a-2.
In the absolute sound review, the JC-2 excelled in 3 areas
1) The incredible accuracy of the high end. It is awesome to learn how much smudge had actually been present in sound previously considered to be clean.
2) The extraondinary lower midrange definition, especially with such instruments like cellos and bassoons.
3) A certain quietness. Discs seemed truly rejuvenated in their sheer nose-lessness on surface." - Listeninn.com
