Listening Feedback (on Facebook): “I had the opportunity to hear the new model at Ze’ev’s house today, and all I can say is, what an accomplishment! Though I’m a proud customer of the Duet15, it made me think twice about upgrading to this one. These have such a deep, powerful bass, wonderfully liquid vocals, and all the magic that this ESS AMT gives with clarity, refinement, and sparkle, as with a good planner magnetic ribbon tweeter. All that goodness comes in a compact, very sturdy design, which is a big plus I think, being one with a small listening room. The overall presentation is natural, organic, and emotionally moving, as with all PureAudioProject speakers. If you’re around for the show or in general, I highly recommend giving them a serious listen – they will amaze you.”
Steven R. Rochlin, Enjoy The Music: “As for the sound, all the great accolades you’ve read over the past decade about the PureAudioProject open baffle speakers are true! And now with an AMT tweeter for the uppermost frequencies, the highs are without a doubt some of the very best I heard during FIAE 2024. With a very lifelike midrange that captivates the ear, of course, the highs are smooth, seriously fast, and clean, with the bass being tight and tuneful…”
MATCH WITH ROOMS
Trio10 w/ HeilAMT features an elegantly curved enclosure, based on the bottom part of our Quinet10. This design makes a narrow, small size Open Baffle speaker, heavy and stable enough to perform with full sonic weight in small, medium and even modestly large rooms. Typical distance from rear wall is 2′-4′, and from side walls, any.
MATCH WITH AMPS
This model loves power, what makes it a very ‘friendly’ match with many solid state, class-D and high power tubes amps. Once power and grip are there this Trio10 simply sings with full sonic-mass, punch and presence. Soundstage is huge with no loss whatsoever of focus, control or details.
More about Heil AMT, an Audio Legend
Heil Air Motion Transformer (AMT) was developed by German engineer Oskar Heil in the 1970s. The Heil AMT has gained a reputation for its unique design and performance characteristics, making it stand out in the world of audio technology.
The Heil AMT is based on a different operating principle compared to traditional dome or cone drivers. It uses a folded diaphragm that squeezes air in and out, creating a more efficient and controlled motion. This design allows for a larger diaphragm surface area in a compact space, resulting in a more responsive and detailed audio reproduction that also feels full-weight and lifelike along a wide frequency range, from the high mid at ~400hz and on.
Heil AMT is a true dipole driver that exhibits a wide dispersion pattern that is 1) a perfect match for a true Open Baffle design and music experience, plus giving the speakers the ability to maintain consistent sound quality over a broad listening area.

More about the ‘Thrier’ Passive Crossover
Just like almost all our speakers, the Trio10 w/ HeilAMT features our first-order, series short-path crossover. All components are audiophile-grade, made by Mundorf in Germany and are mounted on to golden screw terminals. Components can be easily swapped to evaluate various brands, types and even values, to enjoy the process, or to fine tune your speakers to your personal sonic preference, room acoustics and favorite audio gear.
With years of experience and customers in different climate environments, we have narrowed our baffle materials to three types that excel to perform even in high vibrations scenarios, 3/4” High Density Fiberboards (or Plywood), 3/4” three layers Bamboo or Wood sheets, 7/8” genuine German Oak (with anti-vibration inserts).
Their unique finishing will compliment their music performances, and both will blend naturally with the life-style of your room, your office, or your cave
HDF/Plywood baffles are finished to matte or gloss, while Bamboo and wood baffles are cut to maintain the grain along the speakers and are oiled.
In addition, for desired custom finishes, please contact us for an offer and a quote.
Our genuine German Oak baffles are cut from long pieces of wood and numbered to maintain wood original grain.
They are handcrafted with a unique 3/7″ (1cm) deep insertion for extended strength and anti-vibration; smoked and oiled to the selected finishing;… all per order by Holzbodenmanufaktur in south Germany.
