Fronting the amps
was the majestic Purity Audio Ultra GT preamp. This
is a Darth Vader preamp if Iíve ever seen one. Itís
big. Itís black. Itís imposing. Itís b-l-a-a-a-c-k.
Itís got a separated power supply. [Cue the
mechanical breathing machine]. Want top of the line?
Here it is. Your $28k gets you Bybee Music Rails and
Silver Purifiers, pure silver wiring, V-Cap CUTF
caps and a bucket-load more of audio goodness. Dude.
If you can possibly build it to audiophile specs,
Purity just did it. Holy megacow.
What the hell
No, those are not
toroidal power transformers. Oh, no sir! Inside this
chassis are some of the most monster Dueland output
caps that have ever been seen this side of a
blockbuster summer flick from Marvel Comics.
I must have said
something aloud because the Purity rep just laughed
at me. ďYeah, we get that a lot.Ē
But for the life of
me, I just canít understand why theyíre not green
and labeled with the cautionary words: ďDonít make
me angry. You wouldnít like me when Iím angry.Ē
