What They're Saying

They sound fantastic

"These audio cables from Purist Audio Design are not only a fascinating case study in engineering, I think they sound fantastic."

Scott Hull of Part-Time Audiophile

The Luminist Revision Corvus Phono

"...the cable had a smooth, comfortable look and feel which exudes a tactile form of luxury."

Patrick Dillon of HIFI ZINE

...Luminist is better out of the box.

More detailed, loads of top end detail, cymbals, the drumsticks weight as the hit cymbals, bass has better tone/pitch between notes, bass guitar has an awesome growl/bark, both kick drum and bass are more percussive, hit you in the chest more...guitar is more "in the room" ...These are both very good interconnects, but I think Luminist reveals more information. I heard the bass filling in on the brand new Luminist just in the 1.5 hours. Luminist is better out of the box.

...how clear the images became, how transparent soundstage was.

"I never realized how much this device was adding to the sound until I decided to unplug it and just see if it really was doing anything. When I first got it I plugged it in and assumed it was doing something - wow was I was shocked when I unplugged it after a couple of months in use! The sound became diffused and blurry, the texture was now gritty and grainy. It amazed me just how much noise the device was filtering out and how much it improved the sound. How clear the images became, how transparent the soundstage was; truly it was a night and day difference, the value of such tweaks is usually negligible. I don't see this as a tweak anymore, its an essential component for digital playback."

Best regards,
Harry, customer

They are, without fail, the quietest and cleanest cables I've heard.

...a beautifully designed, engineered product.

Fortunately, as a well-educated and trained former NASA engineer, his answers were straightforward and refreshingly to the point.

Jim Aud was not surprised with my findings, though I was. I asked him why his 20th Anniversary Purist AC power cables allow my system to sound so good. Fortunately, as a well-educated and trained former NASA engineer, his answers are straightforward and refreshingly to the point.

With such remarkable characteristics and applied in the same direction, the Musaeus are totally focused on the reproduction of the musical event in a subtle, enthusiastic, dynamic way, with accurate basses and very clean and fast trebles, providing contagious and realistic performances.

Fernando Andrette

The bonus is their specific characteristic--they 'release' tension, nervousness from the recordings, allowing everything to sound as it should.

High Fidelity

...I was amazed.

After some time I decided to go for the Purist Audio Limited Edition. I live in the Netherlands and the cable had to go back to Purist Audio for 220v use. Jim Aud was very kind to adapt it for 220v use. I was amazed about the quality.

This is the second time we have used Jim's cables and both times they have allowed the system to breathe and really come alive. Highly recommended.

Jim Aud...a real gentleman and a maker of very fine cables. Once again, Jim very kindly provided us with cables for our system. As Jim's cables were either hidden behind equipment, or tucked into the corner of the room, they did not get the attention they deserved, compared to the larger and so more eye-catching electronics and loudspeakers. This is a shame, as Purist Audio makes extremely good cables. This is the second time we have used Jim's cables and both times they have allowed the system to breathe and really come alive. Highly recommended.

Jim Aud is...a founding father of high-end audio.

Just wanted to congratulate you on doing whatever you do to make them so outstanding!! ...With the Sennheiser 800 headphones they make a remarkable improvement. Thank you for such great work...Your AC 25 Anniv Power Cord also made a significant improvement. In each case I thought what I had was already very good!!!!

George Papadimitriou

Jim Aud is just an absolutely wonderful person to deal with

Purist Audio Design.... Jim Aud is just an absolutely wonderful person to deal with and over the past fifteen years has always, always, been there for me whenever I had an issue,(which rarely ever happens) a question or just requiring some information.
