PureAudio believe their Control Preamplifier will stand comparison with the very best available at any price. PureAudio's design is an exercise in minimalism in the service of music. At it's heart is a high precision 32 step attenuator utilising non-magnetic Vishay-Dale resistors which provide fine control over the volume setting. Along with the buffer that follows, there is essentially no impact on the signal passing through. The result is pure, just music, with nothing added, and nothing taken away.
Because PureAudio want your music to be at the fore, the user interface has been simplified so that it responds to your needs without calling any attention to itself. The large rotary control allows you to set your initial volume level, and when rotated to zero activates the preamp's standby mode. A slim wood cased remote handset allows level trimming during listening. Input selection is automated, responding intuitively to your selected source. This simplicity does not come at a cost, as complete flexibility is provided, with the preamplifier easily forming the heart of a purist 2 channel system, or integrating seamlessly into a complete combined 2-channel / home theatre installation.
PureAudio created the Control preamplifier as a complete dual mono design, with entirely separate left and right channel power supplies, signal paths, and ground systems. The interior is kept free of electronic noise, with no microprocessors, or other noise polluting elements. This care and attention contributes significantly to the purity of the music that you hear.
When partnered with PureAudio's Reference Monoblock Class A Power Amplifier the two products interconnect and interact seamlessly as a system in response to your needs.
PureAudio's universal chassis design fully supports their musical goals. Constructed from heavy aluminium, stainless steel mesh, and supported optimally on three custom designed feet, the non-resonant, non-magnetic structure presents a beautiful, architectural look.
