The original AudioMachina PURE system became an instant classic upon its introduction a decade ago, and introduced many of the innovations which cemented AudioMachina’s reputation as a true world-class loudspeaker, including the SSA (Solid Slab Aluminum) cabinet, the MAPS (Monitor and Powered Subwoofer) system, and above all, AudioMachina’s passion for simplicity, elegance, and purity in design. Surprisingly, even a decade later, as the PURE design has steadily evolved ever higher, there is still nothing in the world which comes even close to the PURE System’s combination of musicality, naturalness, and purity, in an incredibly compact, beautiful, and easy-to-use system.
To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the incomparable PURE System, and to honor one of audio’s greatest living legends, AudioMachina proudly announces the introduction of the PURE NSE (Nishikawa Special Edition). A new cabinet aesthetic, done in partnership with Nishikawa-san, gives the PURE NSE a new modern yet classic look, and the technical design also reflects a partnership between Nishikawa-san and Dr. Karl Schuemann, combining the best of East and West. Happily driven by as little as 15W of SET or Class A amplifier power, the PURE NSE delivers an intoxicating blend of purity, musicality, and sheer joy. This is a true “desert island” loudspeaker, and will be a final purchase for many true music lovers the world over.
