Musical Fidelity Nu-Vista Vinyl (USED)
The Nu-Vista Vinyl was a labor of love for Musical Fidelity, a company that loves phono, adores tubes, and is passionate about Nuvistor tubes. With the Nu-Vista, they set out to design the product of their dreams, setting out to make a phonostage 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.
Yeah, we can talk about bass (deep, deep, deep), imaging (tactile, holographic), high-frequency clarity with no sibilance....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.
