    Re: Musical Fidelity NuVista 800

    No exaggerated sibilance with my NuVista 800 at all, nor with the KW500 before it. Perhaps it's a matter of synergy with the other components, cables, and speakers. I find the 800 to be fantastic. I never tire of listening to it.

    I own the Nu-Vista 600 and I think it is really a great performer. I replaced a SimAudio Moon 740p pre-amp and a PS Audio BHK 250 Amp..both of these are A+ rated components. I am very pleased with the Nu-Vista 600. It is gorgeous. Looks somewhat like the old Nakamichi equipment I used to own. The display is very readable. Coming in at nearly 70 lbs it is more Amp like than pre-amp for want of a better description. The Nu-Vista 600 feeds a pair of Magico S3s...a truly superb speaker. I am sorry that Mike has had what appears to be a less than positive experience with the Nu-Vista 800. I have had none, zero issues with my 600. My only grip is that the remote is a bit big a clunky and you cannot use it to turn the unit on or off. For $7000 I would expect more. I have a Esoteric K-05x SACD Player and the remote also can't turn the unit on or off. Again, what were the engineers thinking. Bottom-line, by all means keep the 800 or 600 on your shortlist.
