Pure Sound adds £600 A10 valve amp to hi-fi range

Pure Sound A10

It was developed to meet demand for a compact and relatively affordable Class A amplifier compatible with high-quality, high-sensitivity speakers, says Pure Sound.

The A10 is a line-level integrated design that allows selection of two source components and volume control via a film potentiometer. Class A operation was chosen because it gives lower distortion and "a more relaxing, natural sound".

The amplifier uses 6P14 output valves in an ultra linear, push-pull configuration and a Auto Bias system, which means that replacement output valves should be fitted as matched pairs.

All the input sockets and speaker terminals are gold plated, and the output can be configured for use with 4 0r 8 Ohm speakers.

Power output is rated at 10W per channel, frequency response is 30Hz-60KHz (-1dB) and sensitivity is 89dB/W/m.

You can buy the A10 amp now from Pure Sound stockists for £599.95.
