AES/EBU S/PDIF
According to my ML manual, AES/EBU 110ohm has an output of 3.5 volts. How are you sure that AES is 5 volts???I am open to suggestions......Just trying to help. 
AES/EBU S/PDIF
NO! AES/EBU is 110ohms and SPDIF RCA is 75 ohms. The AES/EBU output is 3.5v and RCA is 0.5v.....HOW CAN THAT BE POSSIBLE?????? 
Want to use RCA connections w/ML amp.
Use a short cable and put into the 2 recommended holes of the XLR connector. I think it is #2 and #3 hole. 
Digital Rules

Technics SH-AC500D - Where to buy???

Mark Levinson 380S connectivity -Help
380s is an analog preamp. If you want an outboard dac, try the 360 or 360s. They will have the AES/EBU inputs.

MR71 is the one which is the most highly rated. I have them both. They sound fabulous. None of mine have the mods done but will do them when I have the $.Go with the 71 or buy them both. 
To Preamp or not to Preamp, that is my q
In your situation, a pssive would only make the sound worse as there is a volume control there already on the CDP.If you're into ultimate transparency in the sound, no preamp is the best way. Using a preamp would help make your music sound fuller ...

Hin Levinson 39 has a preamp section built in it. That's OK to connect to a power amp. 99% of other CD players like the Denon used here does not have one built in.To use a regular CDP as a drive for power amps are not appropriate. Sometimes gettin...

Preamp! It acts like a buffer stage to drive your cables. The output impedence on a preamp is far lower than a CD player. That's why you need one.
