Like the many McIntosh components before it, the MVP851's front panel is a shiny black glass face with green backlit labels—the classic design looks just as elegantly au courant now as it did when first introduced in the late '50s. Symmetrically arranged buttons line the panel's lower edge, and although the front panel lacks a jog/shuttle control, all other critical controls are present. Even the Power switch, usually found on a high-end component's rear panel, sits on the MVP851's front, right next to Standby/On. Besides standard Play, Pause, Stop, FF/Next, Back/Rev, and Open/Close buttons, the MVP851 has Re-Master, MPG DNR, and Progressive/Interlace. Putting the P/I switch on the front, along with a small red LED to indicate which scan mode is engaged, makes life much easier. Being able to tell at a glance whether the player is outputting an interlaced or progressive signal saves a lot of aggravation during setup. McIntosh understands: ergonomics count.
