Nu-Vista DAC: Musical Fidelity's Flagship Digital-to-Analog Converter

The Nu-Vista DAC emerges as Musical Fidelity's pinnacle DAC, harnessing the revered ESS 32-bit HyperStream II DAC architecture. This flagship DAC blends the iconic Nuvistor circuitry with advanced digital innovations, creating a unique fusion of analogue warmth and digital precision. Each channel boasts a fully balanced stage featuring Nuvistor 7586 triode tubes within a discrete Class A amplifier buffer, epitomizing the device's dedication to audio excellence.

Key Features and Technical Specifications:

  • DAC Architecture: Utilizes dual ES9038Q2M chips in a dual differential mode, enabling a pristine dual mono setup.
  • High-Resolution Audio Support: Accommodates up to 768 kHz PCM files and DSD256 via DoP, with native DSD512 support via USB. SPDIF inputs now support MQA (up to 384kHz) and DSD (DoP 64).
  • Digital Inputs: Equipped with 3x optical, 1x coax SPDIF, 1x USB, and 1x AES/EBU inputs. A future-proof I2S input is ready for the upcoming Nu-Vista CD player.
  • Outputs: Features both RCA and XLR outputs, catering to a wide range of audiophile setups.
  • Innovative Power Design: Incorporates separate PSUs for digital and analogue circuitry, ensuring pristine signal purity.
  • Advanced Digital Processing: Benefits from a 16-core XMOS processor and Altera CPLD MAX II for unmatched digital audio handling, including optional upsampling and reclocking capabilities.

Nu-Vista's Legendary Analogue Stage:

The Nu-Vista DAC's analogue stage is a marvel, leveraging fully balanced and discrete technology. Each channel's Nuvistor output stage promises ultra-low distortion and noise, delivering a sound that's both powerful and nuanced. This stage is a testament to Musical Fidelity's mastery over analogue and digital realms alike.

Upsampling, Reclocking, and Digital Filters:

The Nu-Vista DAC offers unparalleled customization with its upsampling, reclocking, and digital filtering options. Users can toggle these features for PCM signals, while DSD and MQA processing utilize format-specific settings. The DAC boasts eight selectable digital filters, including a proprietary option optimized for transient response.

For the Sake of Music:

Musical Fidelity designed the Nu-Vista DAC for audiophiles seeking a profound connection with their music. Its design ensures that every note is rendered with clarity and depth, from the deepest bass to the most ethereal highs. The device invites users to explore their music collection anew, with the option to tailor the listening experience through its advanced features.

Build Quality and Design:

True to Musical Fidelity's heritage, the Nu-Vista DAC's build quality is impeccable. Its chassis, crafted from extruded aluminium, provides both mechanical and electromagnetic isolation. Included is a Nu-Vista style remote control, machined from solid metal for a cohesive aesthetic and tactile experience.

A Tribute to the Nuvistor Tube:

The Nu-Vista DAC continues Musical Fidelity's tradition of incorporating Nuvistor tubes, known for their reliability and exceptional audio performance. This choice reflects a deep respect for the nuanced, warm sound that only tubes can provide, bridging the gap between the analogue and digital audio worlds.

In essence, the Nu-Vista DAC by Musical Fidelity represents the zenith of digital-to-analog conversion technology, marrying the soulful warmth of Nuvistor tubes with the precision of modern digital processing. It's a device crafted for those who demand nothing but the utmost in audio fidelity, offering a listening experience that transcends the ordinary.
