Gold Note PH-1000 Phono Stage

Step into the world where precision meets passion, where every vinyl playback is not just heard, but profoundly experienced. Introducing the Gold Note PH-1000 Phono Stage – the utmost embodiment of unparalleled audio sophistication. Meticulously crafted in the heart of Italy, this paragon of innovation presents audiophiles with an auditory canvas painted with the hues of perfect sonic accuracy. Boasting an extraordinary class A circuitry and exclusive discrete components, the PH-1000 brings forth a class A headphone output and an enigmatic tapestry of infinite Equalization (EQ) curves - 36 meticulously engineered presets alongside 4 that can be manually tailored to your heart's content. And if that isn't enough, the optional high-quality class A line preamp awaits those who seek nothing but the apex of audio fidelity.

The PH-1000 stands as a testament to the ultimate pursuit of matchless cartridge alignment, with 14 adjustable gain levels, 12 load levels, and a pantheon of 7 Capacitance options that ensures even the most exotic of cartridges finds its voice. Whether it's for a discerning audiophile's home system or a sacrosanct studio setting, this phono stage, with its intuitive Single Knob Control (SKC) and clear display, is the maestro of seamless, on-the-fly adjustments without ever having to pause the music. It's a device where every function and feature consolidates to shorten the signal path and sharpen the audio quality, retrieving even the subtlest of details embedded in vinyl.

As if defying the very bounds of versatility, the PH-1000 encourages connection with 3 separate inputs – two RCA and one XLR for the most meticulous of listeners, with additional inputs that double for the external load or as line inputs when employing the preamp. And if your heart desires, there's the PH-1000 LITE, streamlined for purists who dwell in the realm of essential quality. Each note resonates with the core of high-grade, computer-tested components, housed within a chassis so exquisitely machined, it echoes the sheer craftsmanship within.

With the Gold Note PH-1000, every vinyl record breaks free from its grooves, transformed into an infinite array of sonic experiences – from the historical depths of the celebrated RIAA curve to the treasured nuances of Decca and Columbia, each one "enhanced" for an exhilarating dynamism and musicality that owes its genius to technologies inspired by the revered Neumann Cutting Lathe. This phono stage isn't just a device; it's the conductor of an orchestra, ready to unveil the vinyl’s quintessence at your command, right down to a headphone output path that achieves the purity of direct signal transfer. For those whose ears will settle for nothing less than the extraordinary, the PH-1000 can be elevated even further with external power supplies or tube output stages, ensuring your pursuit of pure audio realism knows no boundaries.

Embrace the power of complete control, exceptional flexibility, and uncompromising quality with the Gold Note PH-1000 Phono Stage – where every record is not just played, but truly comes to life.
