Our Philosophy: Create a Well-informed Client

Pure Wave Audio's approach is to consult you, the client, from the ground up with a customized equipment solution for home or studio. Through consultation, we can create the proper gear list that fits your needs and budget without the expense of "trial and error" and the frustration of incompatible gear. With Pure Wave Audio, you can trust advice from a professional engineer and audiophile who also makes their living using the same gear. If at any time you have a question or need assistance, just contact us!

Where It All Began

As a professional recording & electrical  engineer, producer, educator and "gear junkie," Jim Pavett had countless encounters with unhelpful salespeople throughout his recording career. Unable to find answers to his tough questions, he grew frustrated from typically knowing more about the products than they did. And turning to pro audio magazines for help only led to product shootouts and reviews that almost never expose important shortcomings. Jim took notice of this knowledge gap between seller and buyer, and decided to do something about it.

The Solution: The Ultimate Pro Audio Store

Jim Pavett founded Pure Wave Audio in 2004, derived from his experience and expertise along with a belief in absolute product knowledge. At Pure Wave Audio, you will feel confident that you are making appropriate, well informed, quality purchases from a real professional.
