Pure Sound A10 Phono Stage
About Pure Sound
Pure sound is the creation of Guy Sargeant’s innovative mind. Simply put, they never fail to make music an enjoyable and rewarding experience, which is surely the purpose of a good hi-fi system in the first place.
The depth of products that Pure sound offer is wide, starting with the delightful A10 integrated amplifier with its sweet sound EL34 derivative, through to the superbly musical and throughly engaging 2A3 which delivers music with vevre and realism way beyond its cost.
Powerful enough to work well with less efficent speakers, the A10 will drive more traditional speakers with ease as well as the more efficent dual concentric’s and horn loaded driver style speakers thus giving more choice to the discerning enthusiast when selecting their amplification
The end result of Guy’s hard word is a range of amplifiers capable of reproducing the full measure of instrument tone with extraordinary dynamic contrast, energy and colour in a very enjoyable and relaxed manner.
About P10 Phono Stage
The P10 phono amplifier is intended to meet the requirements of audio enthusiasts who still enjoy the distinctive strengths and high quality of reproduction that can be derived from vinyl records. It is compatible with moving magnet and high output moving coil cartridges. Low output moving coil cartridges will require the use of an additional step-up device or matching transformer. Full output from the P10 is sufficient to drive the line level inputs of any integrated amplifier or pre-amplifier.
Pure Sound P10 Review
“Spinning ‘Tuesday’s Dead’ from ‘Teaser and the Firecat’ outlined the p10’s basic properties clearly enough: hand drums sounded firm and taut, nicely supporting the speedy pace of the percussion work on this track. The timbral properties of the drums, the slap of hand against skin and the resonance of their bodies, uncoloured by the mechanical patina and compression of dynamics that plagues sold-state was delightful. This stage’s almost stark clarity struck me, not as sterility but an absence of vagueness or harsh. It’s what you get when using high quality components, but few of them- a distinct benefit of simple, value based hi-fi. Strummed guitar was vibrant, and again fast paced. The melodic bass line sounded string yet wonderfully controlled”
