Pure Reference MK II Loudspeaker

The desire to create a breakthrough in any field of human endeavour must be fueled by a

burning passion to be the best. Coupled with this must include the requisite expertise and

the experience necessary to actually accomplish this daunting task. Further add the

endless hours of time and labor with the need for boundless energy and the prospect of

succeeding may nevertheless still prove illusive. However, when all of the above

ingredients coalesce and the goal is attained, the result is the Coincident Speaker

Technology Pure Reference MK II Loudspeaker.

The Pure Reference MKII is the culmination of a lifetime’s devotion and fanaticism with

recreating the live musical experience in the home. This speaker exists for only one

purpose: to enhance the conveyance of the musical message to a degree not experienced

outside of a live concert. No expense and no effort were spared and no detail was deemed

too trivial in creating the Pure Reference MKII. The mission in bringing the Pure

Reference MKII to fruition was to afford the music lover the opportunity to experience in

his own environment the most accurate musical reproduction possible with virtually any

amplifier in existence, from flea powered SETs to large solid state and everything in

between. The Pure Reference MKII can be easily driven to concert hall levels by low

powered tube amplifiers (3 watts or more) because they possess the 5 requirements

which make this possible:

1. High sensitivity (94 db @ 1m-1 w)

2. Uniform high impedance modulus (flat 8 ohms)

3. Total absence of any hard phase angles (meaning they are absolutely phase

coherent electrically)

4. Very tight bass tuning (which makes it easier for low damping factor- high output

impedance amplifiers like SETs to control the woofers).

5. Simple first order crossovers which do not rob amplifier power or reduce speaker

sensitivity.

Many audiophiles believe the most accurate amplifiers are single ended triode tube

designs, yet few speakers are capable of being properly driven by these amps. This

creates a paradox of sorts. Speakers need amplifiers to create sound, yet the finest

amplifiers cannot be used by virtually all the state of the art speaker contenders. These

speakers must then be mated to inferior sounding amplifiers with resultant compromised

sound. The Coincident solution is to create the finest loudspeaker that can be optimally

driven by the finest amplifiers. The end result is the most accurate musical reproduction

possible.

To create a state of the art loudspeaker requires that every component used in the design

is the finest and that the sum of its parts are synergistically matched so that the final

product is a unified whole. Therefore, not only must the design and concept of thespeaker be state of the art, so too must the execution. This means that all the ingredients

which comprise a speaker must be given equal attention with none being deemed less

significant. Everything ultimately affects the sound, no matter how seemingly trivial it

may appear to be. Everything used in the Pure Reference MKII was thought out in

excruciating detail, tested and verified. From the less observable parts such as mounting

bolts, wiring length, and solder to the more obvious such as crossover components,

drivers and enclosure materials, nothing was left to chance. The Total Reference is state

of the art in every conceivable manner.

Drivers –

The drive units used in the Pure Reference MKII were so chosen because:

1. Not only because they represent the finest currently available, but because they

conform optimally to the intended design.

2. Are very robust and reliable. They can handle tremendous amounts of power with no

sense of strain or fear of break down. Yet at the same they are highly sensitive and require

very little power to achieve high sound pressure levels.

3. Have very smooth roll off characteristics outside of their respective optimum

frequency range.

4. Possess very uniform impedance modulus.

All of the above listed factors mean that the crossovers used in the Pure Reference MKII

can be exceptionally simple with only one component in the signal path for each

frequency section. Impedance correction components are not even required, so smooth is

the impedance curves. All this translates to unrivalled purity and transparency.

Tweeter

In order to reproduce all the upper frequencies with complete transparency, transient

speed and precision and simultaneously be capable of capturing all the attendant

harmonics necessitated the employment of a tweeter with ultra low mass. The driver that

perfectly fits this bill was a newly developed, ceramic tweeter with a radiating surface

mass less than the volume of a cubic inch of air. There is no sound that can elude its very

nimble grasp yet its inherent strength permits its response to extend flat down to 1200 Hz.

Furthermore, this special tweeter presents a purely resistive, totally flat 8 ohm load with

no dips, no peaks or spikes. Very high sensitivity is partly due to the use of a highly

powerful neodymium magnet structure that measures 3”x 6” and weighs in excess of 2

lbs. An ultra rigid, solid aluminum faceplate ensures resonant free reproduction and the

elimination of diffraction affects.This tweeter has proven to be nearly indestructible. It can be driven to high SPLs with

distortion artifacts that are vanishingly low. Furthermore, at low or high levels, there is no

change in sonic characteristics. The tweeter always sounds detailed, smooth and refined.

Midrange

The all important midrange is where the majority of the music emanates. No speaker that

aspires to state of the art status can be compromised in this vital area of performance. To

that end, what many would consider the purest driver available for this task was chosen

for the Pure Reference MKII. A specially developed ceramic 6.5” midrange unit with an

extremely light yet rigid cone was used. An oversize magnet structure and edgewound

high purity copper voice coil on a Kapton former ensures high power handling, high

sensitivity and extremely low distortion, especially at high listening levels. Terminals are

thick gauge, gold plated copper which ensures large contact area and a very solid

connection.

While this driver has very flat, even response from 60 Hz – 4500 Hz, it is operated in the

Pure Reference MKII only from 94 Hz to 2 KHz. The drivers are rolled off at the low end

acoustically by the use of bass tuning, ( the purest way to accomplish this) not electrically

which would require the addition of another component(a large value capacitor) in the

signal path This limited operating range ensures completely optimized response, highest

sensitivity and power handling capability and lowest distortion. Preventing the driver

from reproducing the bottom octaves relieves the midrange units from unnecessary long

cone excursions which increases upper frequency distortion. The use of four of these

drivers substantially increases power handing, sensitivity and further reduces distortion

due to the voice coils never overheating since heat distribution is spread over four units

instead of just one. The 400% increase in driver area dramatically enhances dynamics and

impact.

Woofer -

For state of the art reproduction, subwoofer bass that is seamless with the mids and the

highs is mandatory. Not only must the bass extend flat to 20 Hz, with weight, authority

and impact, the low frequencies must be articulate, tightly tuned and never sound boomy,

or out of balance with the rest of the frequency spectrum. It is in the midbass and low

bass where most speakers suffer badly with comparison to live music. When attending a

concert the visceral impact of bass and midbass instruments (such as drums, double bass

etc.) is awe inspiring. The sense of weight and intensity can be heard as well as felt. This

rarely if ever happens when listening to music at home on an audio system. It is in this

area of performance, possibly more than any other, that home speakers fail to measure up.

The speakers that are relatively adept in this area are mostly hopelessly inadequate

everywhere else. Conversely, the speakers that are transparent and truthful in the

midrange and the highs do not at all recreate the sense of drama and intensity in the lowfrequencies. Are these two areas of performance mutually exclusive? For the

overwhelming majority of speakers, the answer is yes. There exist very few speakers that

are smaller than a mini van and cost less than a bungalow that can do it all. Until now,

that is. The Pure Reference MKII is unique among speakers of reasonable size and

cost, that can with equal aplomb capture the sound of a pin dropping and realistically

recreate the furor of a cannon being shot.

How is this accomplished? It starts with an enclosure of the proper volume (the laws of

physics must be adhered to) and total rigidity and ends with the selection of the finest

woofers that money can buy that are specifically designed for this purpose. The new 12”

extra long stroke unit employed in the Pure Reference MKII has pushed the performance

limits for subwoofers. The construction standards are truly remarkable: Thick cast iron

frame ensures complete rigidity, heavy duty, stiff, aluminum cone that is almost

impervious to flexing, a magnet structure that weighs in excess of 12 lbs., thick gauge

gold plated copper terminals to maintain high current capability.

This driver fulfills every demand for deep bass (f3 is 17 Hz). With its unlimited power

handling capacity, 110 db levels at 20 Hz with virtually unmeasurable distortion and

complete long term reliability, this new design accomplishes state of the art bass

reproduction that was previously not possible. While a single driver will excite and please

the most demanding bass aficionado, imagine what four of these per speaker will

accomplish. The Pure Reference MKII uses 2 of these remarkable subwoofers in each

speaker. For the first time, live music impact, punch, and genuine subwoofer bass with

all the visceral excitement experienced when attending a concert is a reality. Because

the tuning of the woofers is extremely tight, there is no concern about overloading a

moderate size room with excessive bass. The bottom octaves, for all their explosive

dynamic capability, are perfectly in balance with the midrange and the highs. There is no

accentuation of any frequency range. The Pure Reference MKII is beautifully balanced

from top to bottom. Indeed, the speaker not only measures virtually flat from 20Hz – 20

Khz, it sounds that way as well.

Enclosure

The Pure Reference MKII out of necessity, is a large, albeit elegant speaker. It is the size

it is, not because it looks impressive(although it does) or as a justification for its selling

price,(which is a genuine bargain although it is hardly inexpensive), but because to fulfill

its mandate as a truly full range(20 Hz – 20Khz) state of the art transducer, it had to be.

This is a simple case of adhering to the laws of physics. In order to achieve true,

undistorted 20 Hz bass response, the cabinet volume must be a predetermined size (and

that means big). Constructing a speaker of proportion this generous and have it be as non

resonant and inert as a small speaker, proved to be a monumental task. The challenge

commences with the selection of the base material- 1.15” MDF Hardwood which is

veneered in furniture grade Ash inside and out. The tweeter and the midranges are housedin their own ported sub enclosure which contains computer designed window braces

horizontally placed between each driver. The woofers are mirror imaged side mounted on

a double MDF wall (2.3” thick) so that their massive cone excursion capability would

have a totally rigid foundation impervious to any flexing. Computer designed window

braces are horizontally located between each woofer to further augment the integrity of

the enclosure. The fundamental resonance frequency is benignly high (330 Hz). All this

effort, technology and innovative design and meticulous execution results in an

enclosure that does not contribute its own sonic signature to the sound. To ensure a

solid foundation for the speaker oversize dual tapered solid aluminum spikes are

included.

Crossover

As with all Coincident speakers, first order crossovers (which are the purest and preserve

phase coherency) are used with only the finest components, matched to within 1%, all

hardwired with lead to lead construction (eschewing the use of unnecessary wires or

connectors). The signal path contains only one capacitor (Mundorf – The most

transparent cap for the purpose) and two inductors (proprietary 10 AWG OFC Litz - one

for the midrange and one for the bass). That is it. Elegant simplicity but as Einstein

remarked- not too simple. This crossover is the most transparent, unobtrusive in

existence. In bypass tests, its presence is virtually undetectable.

The Pure Reference MKII offers:

- Full range, breakthrough state of the art sound;

- Stunning aesthetics;

- The ability to be driven by any amplification including SET tube amps;

- Easy placement in rooms ranging from moderate to large;

- State of the art design and construction with lifetime reliability.

The Pure Reference MKII, while hardly inexpensive, is a genuine bargain given its cost

of manufacture and unparalleled performance. That question can be best answered by

asking if another product of similar type can be had for less money that is constructed as

well, sounds as good and offers all the other features listed above. If the answer is no (and

we obviously strongly believe it is no) and that comparable performance and build

quality can only be purchased for many thousands of dollars more, then the Pure

Reference MKII represents excellent value since it is a state of the art speaker at a

reasonable cost.. There is no other speaker that does everything the Pure Reference

MKII is capable and sells anywhere near its price.

For those who cherish the musical experience and have desired to recreate that gift in

their home, the Pure Reference MKII loudspeaker will prove revelatory. If music is oneof life’s great pleasures, the Pure Reference MKII must be experienced. It will open a

new world of unbridled joy.
