Musical Fidelity is proud to announce the revival of the legendary Nu-Vista 800 integrated amplifier with the all-new Nu-Vista 800.2. This remarkable amp represents the epitome of power and finesse integrated into a single chassis, delivering an unparalleled audio experience to music enthusiasts.
Preserving a Timeless Legacy
The original Nu-Vista 800, a highly regarded amplifier since its inception in 2013, achieved its status as the pinnacle of high-end audio performance. However, due to supply shortages of key components, the amplifier was discontinued in 2021. Today, Musical Fidelity breathes new life into this iconic legend, ensuring that the Nu-Vista legacy continues to thrive.
