Musical Fidelity Nu-Vista CD



The Nu-Vista CD is the perfect match for the highly acclaimed Nu-Vista 800 integrated. Musical Fidelity have designed it, with exactly the same sonic parameters as the Nu-Vista 800.

Being a Musical Fidelity product it has impeccable technical performance. Very low distortion, very low noise, excellent linearity and superlative phase response.

The build quality and aesthetic design match the Nu-Vista 800 precisely.


But the most important thing is the sound. Just like the Nu-Vista 800 the Nu-Vista CD player produces an exquisite warm, full sound stage that is at once convincing and enveloping. It is utterly neutral and faithful to what’s on the disc but transmits it with a delicacy of sensibility and firmness of musical communication that is a joy to hear.

When Nu-Vista 800 and Nu-Vista CD player are used together the sound is beautiful. You can hear everything that was recorded but with a backlit and sort of glowing quality that makes the music almost jump alive in front of you.


The Nu-Vista series are a passionate labour of love for all of them at Musical Fidelity. They hope that at least you get a chance to hear this combination, as they consider it the ultimate expression of their art.
