“If your desire is to connect with your music, then you probably already have a substantial investment in your audio and, dare we say, video system. But even if you don’t, you might be surprised how obviously superior some speakers are to others. And that superiority can take many forms: size, shape, sound, and how they make you feel. Well, with the PureAudioProject’s latest loudspeaker design, the Quintet15 Horn1 takes its place among a cherished handful of great examples of speakers that are true music instruments.”
“this task (self assembly) turned out to be one of the most fun-giving work-related activities I’ve had a pleasure to perform in my journalistic life”… ”To hear speakers this great in their price range is a rare thing”… “PureAudioProject Trio10 Voxativ is smart, superbly sounding, highly recommended and – as a complete package – one of the best ways known to yours truly to spend €5’500 in the audio game. This one’s not a gamble, but the very real deal. Highly recommended…”
“From ppp to fff, the Trio15 Horns handled it all with aplomb. How many times did my wife and I sit down to listen at what we thought was a reasonable volume only to end up with a symphony orchestra at full tilt in our living room!“…“I complement PureAudioProject on creating truly unique loudspeakers.”
“I have been pinching and kicking myself for the past several weeks as I have been romancing the Horn1; pinching myself to be sure this is not an illusion, that the experience is as magical as I’m hearing, and kicking myself because I have been a reviewer for more than 12 years and only now I’m relishing lower powered amp with higher efficiency speakers combination in a big way.“
“What the Pure Audio Project has done to change the DIY landscape is two-fold: 1) offer reliable speaker components and designs associated with some of the best manufacturing available, and 2) offer a truly DIY experience to customers without the risks often associated with garage designed plans.“
“One thing’s for certain: there’s a lot to be had here for under $10k and the Pure Audio Project Quintet 15 may be one of the best values in high-end audio in the here and now. “
Donald Shaulis, from StereoTimes Review and Most Wanted Components Award, 2015′: “The PureAudioProject bridges the gap between pure DIY and completely hands-off prebuilt by shipping flat-packed open-baffle speakers which the buyer assembles. This results in providing drivers and crossover components at a level of quality unprecedented even at several multiples of the Trio10 MundorfAMT’s price. PureAudioProject removes the guesswork and provides the opportunity for audiophiles to be involved in creating speakers that out-perform speakers costing much more…”, Read the Complete Review
Doug Schroeder, Dagogo: “I have been blindsided by the beauty of the Trio 15 Voxativ. I didn’t expect this experience, and it has caused me to reconsider what top end sound is about. With the Voxativ there is a leap upward in terms of the refinement, the characteristics associated with the most beguiling systems… I’m still wrapping my head around this development; it’s forcing a paradigm shift in my audio worldview” Read the Complete Review
“I have been pinching and kicking myself for the past several weeks as I have been romancing the Trio15 PAP-Horn1; pinching myself to see if this is not an illusion, that the experience is as magical as I’m hearing…”, Douglas Schroeder, DAGOGO, read the complete review
“I am blown away by the openness and the continuity (Trio15TB) from top to bottom. I’m still breaking them in but Ludwig Streicher on his double bass is tactile, you can feel the room shake like a real double bass but with excellent detail and string feel. As it breaks in it is starting to give me the feeling of my Everest’s for 1/20th the cost and I can lift them, the JBL’s require 4 people.” Harry Weisfeld, founder of VPI Industries, US
“I have the Trio15 Voxativ and must say they are by far the best speakers I have heard or owned!!”, Greg A., customer, US
” These speakers – Trio15 Voxativ – are just absolutely Spectacular!!! The sound stage is “immense”, with so much depth and the detail is incredible. Every instrument and voice occupies it’s own space and blends together so beautifully, just so right”, Scott L., Customer, US
“Just like everybody will write: I am shocked!!”, Tony L., Customer, Taiwan
About Open Baffle
Free from the acoustical and design constraints of a typical box, open baffle speakers interact with the room sonic ambiance, the ambiance our ears are so accustomed to. The sound is therefore open, natural, dynamic, deep, and totally non-fatigue… simply addicting… We find no better way than quoting our customers feedbacks to describe our speakers and the emotional experience they present, we simply couldn’t word it better !
“…this as near to concert like preformance as I’ve never seen. Listened to music that’s been able to move me before, now it can make me cry, not because of ‘how perfect or analytic it is’, but because the music lets me in and tells me it’s all right, that this is the way it is supposed to sound. It just comes so naturally, easy, no effort at all.”, Customer, US.

With close cooperation and R&D support from world’s most experienced drivers and components manufacturers such as Morel, Eminence, Mundorf, Beyma, Voxativ… PureAudioProject Modular Open Baffle Architecture represents this sonic purity and simplicity at its very best.

more feedback from customers:
“Well, I’m now the proud owner of these wonderful speakers! My god, how good does it get?! We had several audio enthusiasts over a day after bringing these home and everyone was simply amazed! My system already sounded good, but these speakers are something special! I had never heard open baffle speakers before. One of the people who listened to these was the actual manufacturer of my amps (OTL’s) – Peter McAllister of McAllister Audio. He was almost speechless! The ease of how these speakers work, the soundstage, the naturalness has elevated my system to a level I never thought possible. Drums sound like drums, pianos sound like pianos, etc., etc., etc. I have to listen to my whole library again!“, Eldon D, Customer, Canada
“Needless to say, I continued to be thrilled w/what the PAP Horns have brought to my system how much enjoyment they provide. My decision to purchase PureAudioProject speakers is reinforced every time I sit down to listen!”, Ray S., USA
“Well, I finally finished my Open Baffle… I wanted loudspeaker especially for my tube amp, I found them! I will not give you all the superlatives that your OB deserve, but it’s been a kind of shock that I waited a long time, in fact since I design loudspeaker! I listened to several systems about CHF 50’000.- but I had never really been seduced, it was good but not great, just a bit more balanced and a little more defined than what I was doing. And then, while I do not expect a big surprise as the OB are criticized, the slap! A scene, the live music! A real dream !”, Joel A., DIY Enthusiast, Switzerland
“All I can say is it took the speakers (Trio15 Voxativ) to a “much much” higher level, I mean beyond amazing. I can’t stress enough how much better they sound now. Such a full rich deep smooth detailed sound, absolutely beautiful, goose bumps good, best I have ever heard by far.“, Scott F.L.,
