Ignore the Hype these cables are not as good as the previous posters would suggest. Grabted they look the part with super thick cabling and lovely finnish. Sound wise nothing to write home about a huge big but ill defined bass coupled with a rather sat upon treble. these cable have a restrained feel to their sound. I have to say I'm not surprised that MF pulled the plug on them, better to leave cabling to the big boys!

The Nu Vista interconnects are without a doubt the most accomplished cables have ever used. Use them between the pre- and the power. Lockable plugs are easy to fit and stay connected!

Bottom Line:   
bought 2.5 metre pair because felt that they would be a good match for other musical fidelity components. despite reservations about silver cables they do not sound overly sharp and certainly not forward and in fact entirely the opposite. Certainly the best interconnects have ever heard and look rather good too!

Bottom Line:   
I've used lots of ICs - from Nordost to DIY and lots in between. I've never experienced anything like the Nu-Vista ICs. These have to be one of the biggest secrets in audio.

Each pair of ICs comes nicely presented in a see-thru blue lunchbox-sized case. All RCA connectors and RF clamps are tightly wrapped in a clear, protective saran-wrap like substance for protection in shipping. The IC for the positive terminal is in a red, snakeskin-like sheath while the IC for the negative terminal is dressed in blue. From a purely aesthetic standpoint, the Nu-Vistas are quite attractive - the locking RCA connectors and 3 RF clamps are robust. The cables are relatively thick and just a tad stiff, but are relatively easy to work with. Also, the cables are omni directional - there are no arrows marked to follow the flow from the source.

Now, how do they sound? SIMPLY AMAZING! As soon as I let 'em rip, I was immediately transported to the "goosebumpy" world of hi-end audio. Air around instruments, soundstaging, detail, and three-dimensionality increased dramatically. The fact that these are silver cables must have something to do with this. Detail in particular was astounding and, not to sound trite, but I DID hear things in very familiar CDs that I hadn't heard previously. There was a palpable "presence" of the music that really gave me the chills and goosebumps. I "felt" the music and it was great. Interestingly, the Nu-Vistas do not have the brightness characteristic typically associated with silver cables. In fact, they are very "big" sounding and are completely non-fatiguing.

The POCC silver core of the Nu-Vistas has very low resistance and capacitance, and incorporates three screens. Further, they've got absorbent RF clamps which are claimed not to be in the signal path. I'm not sure how the RF clamps work, but they must be doing something right because the cables sound fabulous.

This was my first foray into the world of silver ICs and I just can't go back to copper. The Nu-Vistas are not well-known, but they should be. Of all the cables I've tried, the Nu-Vistas are the best. Period. End of story. They may be the cheapest, most substantive component you ever purchase for your rig.
