The Purity One MKII is a balanced linestage replacing the original Purity One that started it all. The Purity linestage line is the result of years of intensive research directed at attaining the most accurate reproduction of recorded music.  The Purity One MKII is a completely new design  The Purity One MKII's circuit is based on a differential input circuit with cascode output stages to provide a fully balanced signal from input to output.

Unique topology and application of the most advanced technological resources and processes bring the Purity One MKII to a threshold of excellence in sound reproduction.  To add to it's main features, the Purity One MKII carries on the tradition of choke regulated power supply and quality components throughout.  Like the original Purity One, the MKII utilizes a dual chamber design within a single chassis. Extraordinary transparency of perceived sound which in turn assures the recreation of a three dimensional soundstage.

Like the upper end models, the new Purity One MKII circuit  maintains a low output impedance of less than 400 ohms allowing it to mate up with most any power amplifier. Both tube and solid state.

The chassis for the MKII has not changed and remains a matter of form follows function. The Purity linestages utilize a chassis comprised of a unique combination of 100% Acrylic. The top panel is removable for easy tube access.

The back panel consist of 3 sets of single ended inputs and 1 set balanced, one each single ended and balanced outputs. The Purity One MKII is also equipped with our Passive home theater bypass input.

As with all Purity Series products, a separate power supply is utilized for the tube filaments and the remote circuit has been granted it's own dedicated power supply including a separate, standalone power transformer as not to interfere at all with the analog circuit resulting in a dead quite background and lowest possible noise floor.
