Purity Statement
Dual Mono, Twin Chassis
Class A, Balanced, Transformer Coupled Linestage

PLEASE NOTE: The Purity Statement has been released in a Series 2 version.
DETAILS

 

The Statement dual mono balanced linestage is a  result of years of intensive research directed at attaining the most accurate reproduction of recorded music.  Unique topology and application of the most advanced technological resources and processes bring the Purity Statement to a threshold of excellence in sound reproduction. 

The Purity Statement utilizes all the advanced features one would come to expect from a world class product.. The Statement brings to the table Bybee Purifiers (silver units in the Silver Statement) in the input signal path and full silver/Teflon wiring throughout. Bybee Purifiers are also found in each of the two power supplies prior to the rectification circuit for the ultimate in residual noise filtering. Teflon tube sockets and a silver plated wired power supply, including filament circuitry, and umbilical connection cord are also found in the PSS enhancements. The Statement is also equipped with Cryogenic Treated Silver audiophile fuses.

 The Statement has a unique employment of output gain selection. rather than installed sonic purity robbing resistors in the signal path, Purity Audio Design has come up with a unique way of obtaining six output gain levels using specially design autoformers as not to impart of the sonic integrity of the circuit or degrading impedance interactions.

A distinctive feature of the Purity Statement setting it apart from it's competition are its full dual mono power supplies found in a separate chamber located in an outboard chassis (shown at right) also meant to act as a base for the analog chassis. Our power supplies are choke filtered and use only polypropylene filter capacitor banks. To add to it's main features, the Purity Statement utilizes transformer coupling at both the input and output with full silver transformers used in the Silver Statement. Transformer coupling output results in a low output impedance making for better integration with any type of amplifier. Highest quality acrylic encapsulated "Purity Caps" made by Clarity Cap and then Bypassed with V-Cap TFTF (Teflon) capacitors are used in the final stage of the circuit. Attenuation is handled by a balanced autoformer design with  Bybee purifiers at the input. Silver Bybee Purifiers are utilized in the Silver Statement. Extraordinary transparency of perceived sound which in turn assures the recreation of a three dimensional soundstage.

Extensive research, testing and listening led us to a unique, innovative design that achieves very low distortion and wide bandwidth without the need for negative feedback which destroys transient purity.

The full function remote handles volume, mute, balance, source select and phase as well as being able to completely turn off the display. A very precise autoformer attenuation provide 1dB increments. All remote features can be used both in active and passive mode.

Another unique feature of the Statement is fully transformer coupled, balanced passive mode. The Statement's passive mode provides greater detail, resolution and transparency than any other passive device on the market at it still routes the signal through the input and output transformers,  Bybee Purifiers and of course the wonderful sounding Autoformers. Copper transformers and Bybee Purifiers are used in the Statement with all silver units used in the Silver Statement

All Purity Products can be configured to run with the following mains voltages: 110V- 117V or 220V-240V. Primary voltages are factory wired so let your dealer know what voltage arrangement you need at time of ordering.

As with all Purity Series products, the remote circuit has been granted a dedicated power supply including a separate, standalone power transformer as not to interfere at all with the analog circuit.
