Dual Mono, Twin Chassis
Class A, Balanced, Transformer Coupled Linestage
New for 2015, Purity has enhanced their most advanced power
supply for the Statement Series. A new, machined aluminum chassis
has also been developed that allows for new add-ons soon to
Series 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 latest Series brings to the table a new enhanced circuit allowing
the use of either 6SN7 or 12AU7 tube types depending on the sound you are
looking for. Bybee Purifiers in the input signal
path and full

wiring throughout. Starting in 2015 Bybee Music Rails are also found in each of
the two mono power supplies for
the ultimate in residual noise filtering. Teflon
tube sockets and a silver plated wired power supply, including
filament circuitry, an umbilical connection cord are also found
in the enhancements.
distinctive feature of the Statement Series power supply setting it apart from it's
competition is it's multiple large capacitance storage banks.
Each of the two channels contains several large value polypropylene
capacitors allowing the power supply to provide the fastest and
tightest dynamics available from a vacuum tube linestage. In
addition to the large power rails, also featured in the new
power supply is the use of dual choke filtering per channel.
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
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 also meant to act as a base for the analog
chassis. The power supply is dual choke filtered and uses
high current Toroidal transformers and 100% polypropylene filter
Utilizing the power supply externally not
only keeps the weight and size of the Statement manageable
(each power supply weighs >35lbs), it keeps the transformers
and their electric fields away from the sensitive audio
circuitry. It also allows room for the elaborate and
sophisticated power supply not found in other tube
To add to it's main features, the Purity
Statement utilizes transformer coupling at both the input and
output with full silver transformers available upon request. Transformer coupling output results in a low output
impedance making for better integration with any type of
amplifier. Note that ALL inputs and outputs are transformer
coupled included all single ended connections. Highest quality acrylic encapsulated Clarity Cap MR
capacitors. Attenuation is handled by a
balanced autoformer design with Bybee purifiers at the
input. Extraordinary transparency of perceived
sound which in turn assures the recreation of a three
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.
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 and it still routes the
signal through the input and output transformers, and of course the wonderful sounding Autoformers.
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.
help greatly reduce airborne vibrations from having a
negative effect on the vacuum tubes and ruining your
listening experience, both chassis of the Statement are
equipped with Herbie's Audio Labs Tenderfeet.
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.
The 2014 model brings to the table not only a newly design aluminum chassis
but also several enhancements to the circuit including new
custom made balanced input transformers, highly regulated DC
filament supplies (one per channel), new grounding scheme and a
new layout design among other enhancements.
The Reference and Statement Series models are now
equipped with a Preamp/Headphone switch which will allow you
to drive our forthcoming external headphone amp module.
New: The Reference and
Statement Series models are now equipped with Home Theater
Bypass as a standard feature.
In the Ultra model, you will see a pair of large value
Duelund Cast Copper Foil capacitors used at the output
stage. Bybee Purifiers are found in 6 locations of the
The Duelund output capacitors now incorporate .50uF of
silver foil as a built in bypass. The 6 Bybee Purifiers
found in the signal path are now Silver Bybee units.
