A very fine review of the A10 amplifier has appeared
in Russia's HiFi Ru magazine. The A10 is highly praised and awarded Best Buy status.
It's that time of year. The
magazines are handing out their awards and puresound has so far received a couple of accolades.
The L300 was awarded with Highly Commended status by HiFi Plus while the A10 ran a Denon amplifier (with far more
in the way of facilities) very close in the sub £1000 amplifier category over at HiFi Choice.
In a detailed and effusive review in Issue 73 of HiFi
Plus, Roy Gregory wholeheartedly endorsed the L300 pre-amplifier. "I have no hesitation in elevating the
L300 to the most select list in HiFi - the list of musically great line-stages... Listen and enjoy. It's hard not

A10 review HiFi Choice
The P10 phono stage and T10 moving
coil transformer received a favourable review and recommended component status in the March 2010 issue of HiFi News.
In February 2010 the online magazine 6 Moons published

A30 review 6 Moons
the rubato pure copper turntable mat was favourably reviewed in the
May 2009 issue of HiFi World.
The A30 fares very well in a group test of valve amplifiers featured in the June 2009 issue of HiFi
News. These amplifiers were from a very broad price range and as one of the least expensive designs the A30 was felt
to offer very good value. It was one of two of these amplifiers to earn a 'Highly Commended' rating.
"..it had that tremendous presence through the midband that, unlike the other amps, brought
the orchestra right into the room."
The A30 received another favourable (if peculiar) review, this time in the June 2009 issue of HiFi
World. The reviewer mistakenly spends rather too long on the issue of amplifiers designed around KT88's (which the A30
deliberately does not use!) but his subjective experience of the amplifier is very positive.
"..the A30 is an amplifier of enormous sophistication. It sets up a wonderfully rich picture
of a performance that is full of lively fine detail free from any form of edginess, yet fluid in its progression and both
easy and natural to the ear."
An excellent review of the A30 amplifier coupled with a
Border Patrol power supply has appeared in issue 64 of Hi-Fi Plus.
The P10 Phono stage was awarded the top accolade of 5 globes in the February 2008 edition of HiFi
The A30 is featured as one of three valve amplifiers in Issue 6 of the subscription magazine Hi-Fi
Critic. Given the antipathy of the reviewer to valve amplifiers in general, it fares quite well and is recommended.
The technical measurements are also encouraging.
The Heco Celan 500's received a very favourable review in Issue 53 of HiFi Plus magazine.
“As a pair, the A30 and the Celan 500 are a soulful combination with
an approach and performance that centres on an appreciation of the music, the way it breathes and its ability to involve us
through its flavours and beauty.”
The A30 amplifier received a very positive test review in the October
2007 edition of HiFi Choice Magazine.
"Sensational sound quality the like of which you'll struggle to find at anything like this
The A30 was the subject of a review in the September 2007 issue of
the German AUDIO magazine.
"The Paganini Variations by Boris Blacher however showed
the A30 as a master of its subject; beginning in an inconspicuous manner, then revealing layer upon layer of the most exquisite,
sublimely intense tonal colours."
The A30 also featured in a group test of similarly priced amplifiers in Issue 52 (July 2007)
of HiFi +
"There were times when
the puresound performed so incredibly well that I completely forgot I was listening to an amplifier that costs a
little over £1000."
