  3. Item: Musical Fidelity Nu-Vista pre-amplifier Location: Melbourne, Inner North Price: $1000 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Different direction Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, EFT Extra Info: For sale is my Musical Fidelity Nu-Vista pre-amplifier. A terrific performer, and I'll be sad to see it go. Much is known about the MF shift into nuvistors in the late-1990s, but for completeness... The pre-amp has 5 line-level inputs, and a good phono board (MM). Plus, it's own power supply. One of 500 made, this one carries the number 243. This one has no remote, or original packaging. There are a couple of pre-existing nicks on the body of the power supply (see picture). The pre-amp unit is in very good condition. AQ input covers not included in the sale. About the MF Nu-Vista pre... What is the nuvistor..? "(It) was/is the missing link between valves and trannies, a 'sub-miniature triode' that's all-tube, only teensy-weensy. Like the up to the first joint of your little finger. And it is a tube, not a transistor, only one encased in metal. The 6CW4 nuvistor triode is roughly equivalent to a Lilliputian ECC88, the '88 being one of the most highly regarded pre-amp tubes in use today. Now, imagine if you could enjoy the bliss of an ECC88 without the size, the fragility, the heat - you know, all of the stuff which transistors offer while throwing away the sound." (Home Theatre Review: https://hometheaterreview.com/musical-fidelity-nu-vista-preamp-reviewed/) Of the sound, the same reviewer said: "At the risk of upsetting those who think nuvistors are crap (and a couple of my valve-lovin' heroes do think that nuvistors horrible), I have to say that I've never heard a more harmonious blending of warmth detail, silent running richness, seemingly unlimited dynamic capabilities total control. I reverted to favourite torture tests like Willy DeVIlle's 'Assassin Of Love', B.B. King's take of 'Don't Get Around Much Anymore', Jeff Beck's 'Ain't Superstitious' and Big Daddy's 'With A Little Help From My Friends' to hear if there really was more on offer. And sure enough, I was able to listen the performances and explore their sonic spaces as if using a 3-D computer sim with perfect 'virtual reality'. Think of one of those museum 'tours' on CD-ROM, or some state-of-the-art computer game. Only this is a sonic world not limited by a 19in screen. But the sound! Life-like vocals with all of those little clues: the sound of tongue touching teeth, breathiness, smooth 'S' sounds. Bass with just the right resonance, yet no overhang. Acoustic guitars with woody ambience. Brass with punch and sparkle. But most of all, a sense of effortlessness which allows music to flow, yet with enough control to keep it in check...as required. The Nu-Vista is, if you'll forgive this rather sordid analogy, both your slave and your dominatrix..."

  5. Item: Musical Fidelity X-Pre V3 Preamp Location: Melbourne Price: $350 Item Condition: excellent Reason for selling: surplus to my needs Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: half rack size, all functioning perfectly, built like a tank and punchy clean sound with MM phono stage and remote. Was being used with Vincent mono blocks but the wife has cracked the whip on space, so I'm back to integrated amps (for now). Sad to see this one go as it is a stunner and has served me trouble free all its like (unlike my previous Rega preamp!) Would prefer a Melbourne sale but it's small enough to box up and ship interstate at buyers expense Pictures:
  6. Item: Musical Fidelity M550 'Supercharger' Monoblock Power Amplifiers Location: Len Wallis Audio HQ, 64 Burns Bay Road, Lane Cove NSW Price: $2800 Item Condition: Excellent Secondhand Condition Payment Method: Cash, Paypal, Credit Cards, Bank Transfers, ZipPay Shipping: Anywhere in the observable universe, POA Extra Info: Musical Fidelity 550K Power Amplifiers are designed to be installed between the existing amplifier and loudspeakers. Nothing else has to be changed or touched. They increase the power of the existing amplifiers to more than 550 watts which gives any existing system sufficient power to give realistic concert hall dynamics in the home. The idea of the 550K Power Amplifiers is to inject a new lease of life to existing hi-fi systems. Installing the 550K Power Amplifier is easy. They fit between your existing amplifier and the loudspeakers. After they've been connected to power nothing else needs to be done as the 550K Power Amplifier has a sophisticated turn on/turn off music sensing circuit. Pictures:
  7. FS: Musical Fidelity - A3 Dual Mono Integrated Amplifier Location: Belrose NSW Condition: Used (lovingly) and very well cared for. Price: $800 Negotiable https://www.musicalfidelity.com/uploads/manuals/English/a3int_eng.pdf “The A3 operates in Class A/B which in our experience offers the ultimate in musical accuracy and pleasure. The A3 is based on ideas and principles developed in the legendary X-A1 Integrated amplifier but with subtle changes and improvements.” Sadly, it’s time to let go of my much-beloved Musical Fidelity system. It’s time to down-size to a streaming system (Kef LS50W) Actually, the main reason to sell is despite her liking the awesome sound, my wife hates the look of my complete system. Comes complete with Remote Control and power cord. Will post/courier at buyer’s expense. You can pay via PayPal or bank transfer. Or you can collect with C.O.D.

It's a terrific performer, and I'll be sad to see it go. Much is known about the MF shift into nuvistors in the late-1990s and beyond, but for completeness...

  15. Item: Musical Fidelity M6 CD Location: Newcastle, NSW Price: 1990 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling:NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Excellent condition Musical Fidelity M6 CD player. Mostly in box and not used (under 10 hours of actual use), was for a dedicated second HiFi room project that never eventuated. Upscaling CD player (16 to 24 bit). Could be used as a stand alone digital upscaler or DAC. Originally retailed for $4,800 and I purchased from Len Wallis Audio in Sydney in late 2014. Comes with all accessories and box. From a smoke, pet, kid, and wife free home. So much more than a mere CD player, the M6CD is a hub for all your digital entertainment – and the perfect source for the rest of the M6 range. Within its beautifully built casework, the M6CD pairs a high-quality CD transport with a high-performance DAC, complete with switchable coaxial, optical and USB inputs. We’ve been designing DACs for almost a quarter of a century, so the M6CD is every bit as exceptional as you’d expect, offering outstanding linearity and minimal noise, distortion or jitter. The M6 CD’s 24bit/192kHz upsampling DAC can give a massive, measurable performance boost to digital sources, from discs to downloads to music streaming services. In the hands of the M6 CD, digital music has rarely sounded so natural. Expect a sweet, smooth performance with excellent imaging and a huge dynamic range. As Alan Sircom said in his HiFi+ review, the M6CD “lives up to the Musical Fidelity name, being both accurate and tuneful, and never puts a foot wrong.” Performance Jitter: <135 picoseconds peak to peak Frequency Response: 10Hz to 20 kHz -0.2dB max. Signal to Noise Ratio: >117dB THD(+ noise): <0.003% 10Hz to 20 kHz Linearity: <0.1dB down to -96dB Channel Separation: 105dB 20 Hz to 20 kHz Hardware DAC:24 bit Delta-Sigma (bit stream) dual differential 8x over-sampling Inputs 1x RCA coaxial connector (SPDIF) 1x TOSLINK optical connector(SPDIF) 1x USB input type “B” Outputs 1x line level RCA 1x line level Balanced XLR 1x RCA coaxial connector (Digital SPDIF) 1x Toslink optical connector (Digital SPDIF) General Dimensions - WxHxD (mm): 440 x 125 x 385 Weight (unpacked / packed): 11.2 kg / 15.5 kg Pictures:

  17. Item: Musical Fidelity X-10V3 (Tube Output Buffer) Location: Len Wallis Audio HQ, 64 Burns Bay Road, Lane Cove. Price: $125 Item Condition: Excellent Secondhand Condition Payment Method: Cash, Paypal, Credit Cards, Bank Transfer Shipping: we can ship anywhere in Australia, POA Extra Info: The X-10V3 performs as a signal pass through, removing the harshness often experienced in digital sound-stages. Of course 'listen-ability' can sometimes be hard to define in tangible terms yet that's exactly what the X-10 adds. Think of it as being able to take the cold harshness generated by some digital components and adding in a little tube-like ambience and warmth, with out going to far...

  19. Item:Rare Musical Fidelity KWP Hybrid tube ss preamplifier Location: Perth Price: $Was $2500 then $2200 ono now $2000- ridiculous, now only $1750 now only $1700 just serviced by Liquid Audio. in Perth, have spare bulbs which are recommended to be installed at next service, remote and box. Mike at Liquid Audio mentioned that for another 500 -600 you can improve these amps dramatically over as new spec by upgrading the parts to an amplifier way past the point they were ever designed for. Prefer to sell with SUPERCHARGERS AS A PACKAGE as an awesome combination. Superchargers sold. . Donation to SNA on sale of both pre and power amps. Item Condition: Excellent (just about as new) slight issue with superglue smear on rear but does not affect the sound of anything really just fill disclosure just a drop ran down back and cleaned up. Reason for selling: Too many preamps and amps and trying to design Payment Method: Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This was Musical Fidelity's flagship preamp and the last of the 'Made in England' components. It retailed for alot new. It features a military-grade 6112 valve per channel. These valves are claimed to have around 100,000 (yes, 100K) hours of life and are cheap to replace (but most likely you would never have to). It was very favourably reviewed by Stereophile's Michael Fremer and the measurements by John Atkinson showed it as being among the very best he ever measured with an enormous power supply (said to be as powerful as a 20 watt amplifier) and he states, "The kW Hybrid has probably the highest dynamic-range capability of any preamplifier I have measured, more even than MF's own kWp..." and he finishes with "this is an extraordinary preamplifier." The unit is heavy, large and beautifully built. Looks as new and comes with the remote control, instructions, original boxes, etc. apart from slight imperfection on back see photo. It sounds superb, with the Hybrid design offering a very dynamic sound (as you'd expect with that massive power supply), it's very detailed, resolving but has a nice touch of warmth and body too. It has some of that midrange magic that valves can offer but has the control and power of a solid state design. This is a stunning preamp and not seen very often in any 'For Sale' section anywhere.

And i used only on and off across the last 8 years mosyly with small tube amp systems, but can add 700 watts to even a big solid state syatem for more headroom. Extra Info: Stereophile Summing Up Sounding significantly less lean than both the kW and the 550K, the 750K Supercharger is, without a doubt, the best-sounding amplifier I have heard from Musical Fidelity. The Mark Levinson is outclassed by the 750K in bass solidity, control, and overall dynamics. At $10,000 US/ a pair, it is undoubtedly expensive, but its immediate competition is more expensive or less powerful, or both (eg, Ayre's MX-R). Forget the Supercharger nomenclature—this is a power amplifier that can stand on its own feet.

The Supercharger loads the small amplifier with an easy-to-drive 50 ohms, and, in theory, has so little sonic signature itself that it passes on the sonic signature of the small amp unchanged, but louder. image: https://www.stereophile.com/images/archivesart/1208mf.jpg Michael Fremer reviewed Musical Fidelity's first Supercharger amplifier, the 550W 550K ($5000/pair), in September 2007. Using the 550K both as a traditional monoblock power amplifier and as a Supercharger to increase the dynamic range of his beloved Music Reference RM200 tube amp, a 1964-vintage Scott 299D integrated amplifier, and some solid-state designs, Mikey was impressed by what he heard. "Using a variety of very different-sounding amplifiers of various power outputs overwhelmingly demonstrated to me that the 550K Supercharger will retain the sonic attributes of your favorite low- or medium-powered amp (50–200Wpc), whether tubed or solid-state, while increasing its output by 10dB or more....The result will be dynamic realism and, in most cases, better overall performance. You can have your cake and make it rock, too." In my own auditioning of the same pair of 550K Superchargers, used as conventional monoblock amplifiers, I was very impressed by their effortless dynamics and iron-fisted control of the loudspeakers' bass. However, I ultimately felt that the 550Ks did have some character, sounding lean compared with my reference Mark Levinson No.33H monoblocks, and with a less liquid midrange. Overall, the 550Ks sounded very similar to Musical Fidelity's flagship dual-mono kW behemoth, which Michael Fremer reviewed in January 2004, but perhaps with less delicacy (footnote 1). Of Musical Fidelity's high-powered amplifiers, I much preferred the balance of the kW750 (750Wpc into 8 ohms, $10,000). I had first encountered this stereo design when I used it to drive Wilson Sophias 2s, playing some of my high-resolution recordings at a pair of musical evenings promoted by North Carolina dealer Audio Advice in December 2005. The kW750 combined the kW's extraordinary dynamic range and control of the woofers with a warmer lower midrange and sweeter-sounding high frequencies. Mikey found it too mellow compared with his kWs, though that is perhaps a matter of taste. After using it in my system for a while, I seriously considered buying a kW750, but a cooler financial head than mine prevailed. So when MF's Antony Michaelson told me that he was introducing a Supercharger based on the 750K's circuitry, I asked for a pair for review (footnote 2). The 750K At first glance, the 750K Supercharger looks identical to the 550K: a black cylinder topped with an aluminum cap, made in Taiwan. It has the same music-sensing turn-on/off circuit and the same three LEDs at its base: red for standby, blue for operation, orange for thermal overload. However, while the new amplifier shares the 550K's 8.5" diameter, it is just over 6" taller, and its aluminum cap has a mesh-covered vent, through which two temperature-controlled fans exhaust hot air. (There are discreet inlet vents at the sides; the fans run briefly when the amplifier is first switched on, then remain off until the heatsink temperature rises above a preset threshold.) There is now a balanced XLR input jack on the rear panel in addition to the 550K's single-ended RCA. The maximum power is specified as 750W into 8 ohms or 1150W into 4 ohms, an increase of 1.75dB compared with the 550K, though the price is 6dB higher: $10,000/pair compared with $5000/pair. Sound Psychoacousticians tell us that our aural memories are reliable only in the short term (though that doesn't tie in with the fact that we instantly recognize friends' voices on the phone despite the lack of fidelity). But from the instant I powered up the 750K Superchargers in my system, using them as conventional monoblocks from their balanced inputs, I was immediately reminded of the kW750. A warmish midrange, sweet-toned high frequencies, tight, deep low frequencies, and a voluminous, stable, well-defined soundstage—all were exactly what I remembered of the sound of the kW750 in my system, back in the day. The images of the singers in Cantus's luminous performance of Eric Whitacre's Lux Aurumque, from While You Are Alive, the recording I made with them in summer 2007 (CD, Cantus CTS-1208), were precisely positioned in space; it was very easy to perceive when the tenors turned away from the microphones to add spaciousness to their sound. And the character of the voices was as natural-sounding and as unforced as I expected, with no added hardness in the climaxes of the suite, A Sound Like This, by Edie Hill also featured on the CD. (Male voices singing close harmonies at high levels provide the perfect test signal to reveal shortcomings in amplifiers and loudspeakers.) The Musical Fidelity's enormous dynamic range and bass control got the best from Live at Merkin Hall, my recording of Stereophile reviewer Bob Reina's jazz group, Attention Screen (CD, Stereophile STPH018-2). I use as few mikes as possible when I record a drum kit: two cardioids overhead as an ORTF pair, a Shure cardioid clipped just above the snare drum's top skin, and an AKG dynamic mike in front of the kick drum's front skin. I time-align the outputs of the two spot mikes with the outputs of the cardioid pair, my goal being to capture both a natural image of the drums and their natural dynamic range. With an empathetic drummer capable of optimally tuning his kit—eg, Attention Screen's Mark Flynn—almost no equalization or compression is required in postproduction. And Mark hit the heck out of his Gretsch kit that February night in Merkin Hall. There are some snare-drum shots on "Blizzard Limbs"—the three beats at 3:40 that divide the rocking improvisation that begins the piece from the more contemplative second section, for example—that go from –60 to 0dBFS from one sample to the next. Amplifiers that can't swing as many volts as the 750K will clip those peaks, unless you play the music too quietly. With the Musical Fidelitys, I could play this track at live levels without waveform clipping. It being the end of Zeptember as I write these words, I had to get the Led out, specifically How the West Was Won (DVD-Audio, Atlantic 83587-9), recorded live at two L.A. concerts in 1972 by Eddie Kramer. Yes, suck-and-blow compression is obvious at times, but this set features great recorded drum sound, with tangible space around and between the drums. Forget "Stairway to Heaven," "Immigrant Song," "Whole Lotta Love"—the highlight of this album is the blues "Since I've Been Loving You." Even at ear-bleed levels—is there any other way to listen to Led Zeppelin?—the Superchargers allowed me to hear into the layering of the soundstage, with Bonzo's drums behind Jimmy Page's guitar and "Percy" Plant's wailing.

But for all their ability to kick loudspeaker butt, the Musical Fidelity could still do delicacy with aplomb. Robert Plant and Alison Krauss's Raising Sand (CD, Rounder 11661-9075-2) has been in heavy rotation chez Atkinson since I picked it up while killing time at a Starbucks a year ago. The double bass on this disc can be problematic with some amplifier-loudspeaker combinations, as its considerable midbass energy demands an amplifier capable of retaining control of the woofers if the sound is not to degenerate into mud, while at the same time allowing this recording's wealth of midrange detail to emerge unscathed. The bass in Gene Clark's "Polly Come Home" had the appropriate combination of weight and definition, without obscuring Plant and Krauss's mysterious-sounding harmonies as they soared over Marc Ribot's contemplative guitar figurings, all against a richly ambient backdrop. Again looking back, I see I have avoided mentioning how the Musical Fidelitys coped with complex classical music. They did very well with naturally miked recordings. They allowed, for example, the sense of space Tony Faulkner had captured with Antony Michaelson's performance of the Mozart Clarinet Concerto, with conductor Robert Bailey and the Michaelangelo Chamber Orchestra (SACD, Musical Fidelity MFSACD017), to emerge from the speakers unscathed. And with a hi-rez, 24-bit/96kHz FLAC download of Britten's Simple Symphony, performed by the Trondheimsolistene (originally released on the SACD Divertimenti, 2L 2L50SABD), the joyous sound of the violins never became steely or hard, or too soft or mellow, while the double bass and cellos neither boomed nor sounded too lean. Only once did the amplifiers' cooling fans turn on. I was playing organist Michael Murray's thunderous performance of Bach's Prelude and Fugue in D (Telarc CD-80088) and reveling in the Revel Salon2s' apparently limitless dynamic range when driven by the Musical Fidelitys. At the end of the track, after the blower noise from the organ on the disc had faded away, I could just hear the much quieter sound of the 750Ks' fans. They never came on at normal listening levels. Comparisons While it shared many of the merits of Musical Fidelity's own 750K at half the price, the 550K Supercharger sounded lean in direct comparison with the 750K. Whereas the 750K worked well with every speaker I hooked it up to, the 550K needs to be matched with speakers balanced a little on the fuller-figured side. Significantly, after Cantus producer Erick Lichte had turned in his Follow-Up on the 550K, we spent a weekend together working on the mixes for the next Cantus CD, using the 750Ks to drive Revel Salon2s. "That," he said, pointing to a 750K, "is a very different amplifier from the 550K." Yes it is! Against my long-term reference amplifier, the Mark Levinson No.33H(150W, $19,900/pair when last available), the Musical Fidelity surprised me by having better-defined, more extended low frequencies. The Levinson sounded somewhat "puddingy" in direct comparison—not at all what I had expected. The Levinson had slightly sweeter mids and highs, but it was a close-run thing. Next up was the Parasound Halo JC 1 (450W, $7000/pair), a long-term favorite of this magazine's review team and of mine. The Parasound had low-frequency slam and definition to match the Musical Fidelity's but was cooler-balanced overall, sounding similar to the 550K, though its highs were smoother. My auditioning of the Musical Fidelity 750K was interrupted by two weeks spent with the Ayre KX-R preamplifier, reviewed last month by Wes Phillips, along with the Ayre MX-R monoblocks (300Wpc, $18,500/pair) he had used to prepare the review. In direct comparison, the Ayre matched the 750K's slam, bass definition, and soundstaging depth, and offered a slightly sweeter high end. I mean no disrespect to the 750K when I say that the MX-R could be my ultimate amplifier. But the price difference is significant, and I could happily live with the Musical Fidelitys. Summing Up Sounding significantly less lean than both the kW and the 550K, the 750K Supercharger is, without a doubt, the best-sounding amplifier I have heard from Musical Fidelity. While I still prefer the Mark Levinson No.33H for ultimate midrange sweetness, the Levinson is outclassed by the 750K in bass solidity, control, and overall dynamics. At $10,000/pair, it is undoubtedly expensive, but its immediate competition is more expensive or less powerful, or both (eg, Ayre's MX-R). Forget the Supercharger nomenclature—this is a power amplifier that can stand on its own feet.
