Based on our excellent Nu-Vista 800 circuit we decided to go all out “fully balanced” on the Nu-Vista range.
The Nu-Vista PAS features the tried and tested Nu-Vista stage featuring 6S51N nuvistors in a discrete class A amplifier buffer.
This is followed by a balanced configuration circuit and balanced input high power, low distortion output amplifier stage. The power stage has 5 pairs of high power thermally compensated output devices for reliable and stable operation.
Nu-Vista PAS Power Supply
The Nu-Vista PAS comes with its own dedicated external power supply.
To achieve better noise performance, we removed the AC mains power supply from the main unit and built it into another matching box. In this box we took advantage the extra space to set up inbuilt mains and output filtering. This quietens up the supplies and results in almost no mains-borne artefacts getting into the sensitive audio circuitry. The Power supply has ON/ Standby LEDs and is controlled from the main unit front panel. If total mains isolation is required, the power supply also has rear mounted mechanical rocker switch for full power off.
