Gold Note PH-10 Phono Stage

Immerse yourself in the lush landscapes of audiophile nirvana with the Gold Note PH-10 Phono Stage, an exquisite piece of Italian craftsmanship designed to elevate your vinyl listening experience to celestial heights. Encased in a sleek chassis that whispers sophistication, the PH-10 isn't just another phono stage—it's a sonic revolution that transforms the analogue signal with an elegance that rivals the art of music itself. With its revolutionary EQ CURVE capabilities, the PH-10 allows you to traverse sonic realms with the RIAA, embrace the warmth of DECCA LONDON, or engage the vitality of the AMERICAN COLUMBIA curve, all at the mere touch of a button, displayed vividly on a color screen that sets the stage for a performance like no other.

The PH-10 thrills with its proprietary technology, an aural magic inspired by the venerable Neumann Cutting Lathe, designed to bestow upon your music a dynamic and musicality that's nothing short of an acoustic marvel. It’s a stage that gives the term ‘perfect cartridge matching’ new meaning, with a symphony of LOAD and GAIN configurations catering to the most intricate needs of both MM and MC cartridges. Rejoice in the ability to connect not one but two tonearms, each with its own dedicated settings retained in the PH-10’s memory even when powered down, creating a paragon of adjustment precision and user-friendliness. But the crescendo comes when the PH-10 is paired with the PSU-10 power supply, which supplies the phono stage with a conductor’s poise, offering unfettered access to an even greater dynamism and a three-dimensionality that takes your breath away. Prepare your senses for an unparalleled auditory journey, where technical specifications are not merely numbers but a gateway to an experience of musical truth that only the Gold Note PH-10 can deliver.
