The Nu-Vista Vinyl was a labour of love for MF. We love phono, we adore tubes, we are passionate about Nuvistors. We relished, revelled and basked in the pure joy of designing a product of our dreams.
One quick look at the Nu-Vista Vinyl's wonderful visuals confirms our feelings. We set out to make a phono stage without any practical limits. Essentially, in real life, you cannot overload the input stage or find any practical limitations in the output driving capacity. Single ended or balanced. It has five inputs, each can be set for either MM/MC and exact loading. It will remember those settings.
The true point of any electronic, actually any audio component, is that you don't know it is there. You completely forget its existence.
By that criteria the Nu-Vista Vinyl is almost perfect. It has no practical audible noise, it doesn't really have distortion, you cannot overload its input or output, you can load your cartridge perfectly.
It exists to serve, serve the music. To bring the artists intent, emotions and passion to your ears and heart. Yeah, we can talk about bass (deep, deep, deep), imaging (tactile, holographic), high frequency clarity with no sibilence....and on and on. Yeah, It does all those things.....but the big thing it does, the thing that matters ....is that it eases your soul by getting you to the heart of the music.
Bought this with Nu-Vista 600 amp as an overall upgrade to my existing system. It is also partnered with an Ortofon Cadenza Black and Oera Callas Speakers. My main listening source is vinyl and wanted to ensure that's where I wanted to ensure I could get the best reproduction.This has not failed in that expectation, it is an exceptional phono stage. The best way I can describe it, is it is not there. All there is, is the music beautifully presented. Utterly spellbinding. I am hearing some of my albums for the first time. It never fails to put a smile on my face. Also flexible enough to ensure you can load your cartridge to suit your preference. Wonderful!If you are considering an upgrade and considering this, buy it!Also the guidance and care you will get from the AS team is exemplary.
