AudioMachina PURE system Mk3


The original PURE system became an instant classic upon its introduction in 2006, and introduced many of the innovations which cemented AudioMachina’s reputation as a true world-class loudspeaker, including the SSA (Solid Slab Aluminum) cabinet and the MAPS (Monitor and Powered Subwoofer) system.

Now in its MKIII iteration, the PURE has incorporated several new innovations created during the development of the astounding Maestro S, including Ti crossover technology and the new MSX active filter. Happily driven by as little as 15W of SET or Class A amplifier power, the PURE delivers an intoxicating blend of purity, musicality, and sheer joy. This is a true “desert island” loudspeaker, and a final purchase for many true music lovers the world over.
