^ Of course that's the desired result. If the audio design is "perfect" there SHOULD be no difference in audio quality according to whether or not the video and front panel circuits are also active.
Realistically, all we can really say is that any actual difference is subtle.
I thought I read where "Pure Audio" mode simply defeated the video outputs to reduce any possible noise they may introduce, which probably wouldn't be noticeable since the noise floor is so low already?
