I just purchased a Tri-Vista 300, and right out of the box, I'm blown away. I listened to the BAT when auditioning integrated's. I also listened to the BAT pre hooked to various amps. I was more impressed w/ the MF TV than anything over 3 times the price. The female voices actually sounded like they were in the room, and it's not even broken in yet. I'm not sure about this break in stuff, but if gets better than it is now, I'm not sure I could have made a better choice. Even w/ my inexpensive turntable, I'm very impressed. The TV amp is so good, I think I'm going to save and buy the TV SACD player. My current A3.2 CD player is excellent, but if the integrated is any indication of the capability, I can't go wrong.
Hope this helps w/ you're decision making.
