Puresound P10
tube phono preamplifier

The Puresound P10 phono amplifier is the latest addition to the highly acclaimed Puresound product range. It is intended to meet the requirements of audio enthusiasts who still enjoy the distinctive strengths and high quality of reproduction that can be derived from vinyl records.

Puresound P10

The Puresound P10 is compatible with moving magnet and high output moving coil cartridges. Low output moving coil cartridges will require the use of an additional step-up device or matching transformer. Full output from the P10 is sufficient to drive the line level inputs of any integrated amplifier or pre-amplifier.

The active amplification stages use double triodes in a simple anode follower configuration. The phono equalisation is achieved using passive components and can therefore maintain its accuracy over time without introducing the unacceptable levels of phase shift found in active equalisation stages. There is no negative feedback in the circuit.

The Puresound P10 features a particularly elaborate HT power supply. After the initial rectification and smoothing, the supply is split and two separate, heavily decoupled high voltage rails are established. These feed each half of the output valve while further decoupling of each rail allows the cleanest and most independent voltage rails possible to feed each half of the input valve. The absolute stability of this supply regardless of the demands made by the audio signal on the circuit, lends the Puresound P10 a stability and poise which allows effortless reproduction of the most demanding source material. The valve filaments are also fed by a DC supply thereby ensuring constant operating conditions for the amplifier.

The circuit makes use of close tolerance metal film resistors, polypropylene signal coupling capacitors and selected valves.

The gain of the Puresound P10 is 40 dB (x 100).

The Puresound P10 phono amplifier meets the very strict performance criteria required of all Puresound products and will give excellent results with vinyl records provided that it is used with appropriate ancillary equipment.

Product Review:

HiFi World February 2008

The P10 Phono stage was awarded the top accolade of 5 globes in the February 2008 edition of HiFi World.

"... it had me reaching for LP after LP in night long sessions. It's a product that is very right, one that draws you into the music....

...one of the best phono stages around..."
