    If you haven't heard about the Musical Fidelity Tri-Vista SACD, it looks like a great one. A British dealer has some information posted. Here is their description:

    By the way, I have to say that this player is not a looker. Just my $0.02. I'm guessing it sounds better than it looks. [​IMG]

    Lee, I hope these players go straight from DSD to analog. Still, I see the mention of a 24/192 DAC in the Musical Fidelity player and have to wonder.

    Is it just me, or do these pictures look different to the ones posted on Audio Asylum about a month ago? Maybe those were of a pre-production model...
    Anyways, more relevant is the fact that the previous Musical Fidelity 3D cdp was meant to produce "equivalent to sacd sound from cd"... so much for that claim eh? [​IMG]
    Cheers,

    Craig,

    I saw that, but I thought there would have been some mention of a DSD DAC to make things perfectly clear.


    Mike,

    I thought the same thing when I first heard that Musical Fidelity would be releasing an SACD player. While I know that Musical Fidelity makes excellent components, I do feel their products are overhyped somewhat, both by the company itself and by Sam Tellig in Stereophile.
