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. Sound Quality 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.
