WOULD YOU LIKE TO WIN A BRAND NEW valore 425 Plus ACRYLIC worth over £1,000?

Hifi+ and gold note are running a new competition worldwide!

And it's just what you were looking for: if you want to win a new, superb turntable and you feel lucky then participate in the competition.

We have partnered up with the smart folks from Gold Note to bring you an exciting competition for a chance to win a Valore 425 Plus turntable worth £1,445.45.

Alan Sircom reviewed the Valore 425 Plus in Hi-Fi+ issue #168 where he wrote, “A big part of the reason we’ve been banging on about Gold Note turntables is they get a lot right, especially when it comes to those all-important rubrics of value-for-money and ease-of-use. Valore is Italian for ‘value’ and ‘worth’ (as in both a financial and a moral sense) and the 425 Plus is the uppermost of the two models in the Valore range.” 

 He went on to say, “The Gold Note Valore 425 Plus is perfectly placed, in that it works

exceptionally well with all moving magnet cartridges and most moving coils you would expect to put with a deck at this price.” “It’s a tidy, ordered, detailed, and – above all – quicksilver performer that acts from the midrange on out.”

He concluded by saying, “if your tastes run from World Music to Wagner, the Gold Note Valore 425 Plus is an excellent and inherently honest performer that doesn‘t impose itself on the sound of LP. “
