Srajan Ebaen is a true expert of digital audio and his unfailing ears has once again spotted the true nature of our preamp: detail and transparency!

"Gold Note's fully balanced preamplifier showed itself as a very high-resolution essentially neutral performer whose key strengths were tremendous depth of field, masterful untanglement of complex interludes and, directly related, very high magnification powers of subtle detail. I enjoyed keen audibility of space as the domain of fine recorded reverb trails behind and around tones which cast very brief virtual auras around their performers. Likewise, I enjoyed keen awareness of tone modulations as the domain of harmonics and how performers manipulate their instruments or voices to shift timbre as though, in the most masterful instances, they actually played different instruments or exchanged their vocal cords." - Srajan Ebaen

A new, great review on Positive Feedback signed by Larry Cox!

"If tubes are so "last century" then the added functionality of Gold Note's features is the new millenia's tube rolling. Whereas some beauties require big sacrifices and are high maintenance, this Italian beauty is anything but. Recommended!" - Larry Cox

Angelo Jasparro testa P-1000 per Audio Activity ed evidenzia come il nostro preamplificatore sia davvero un pre "trasparente":

"Questo apparecchio, per quanto ci si sforzi di sentirlo, non si sente. Sparisce, si imbosca. Apre un’autostrada tra sorgenti e finali, senza effetti collaterali. Questa caratteristica, la scomparsa all’ascolto, comporta dei costi che spesso sono molto elevati. Insomma, la trasparenza, quella vera, richiede abilità progettuale, componentistica di livello, assemblaggio impeccabile" - Angelo Jasparro

The CD-1000 is tested with PA-1175 on HiFi NL, here a brief abstract in English:

"Now I realize how fast I became friends with the beautiful sound of the Gold Note CD-1000 and the PA-1175. Subtle but powerful, detailed but also silky soft, very spacious and stable. And full of character. A subtle but clear 'sound' has been developed for the good listener.
Add to that the very solid build quality and the fine Italian design and you have a set where you can enjoy music at a very high level"

Donatello is reviewed with Mediterraneo on Positive Feedback!

"The combo had no issues tracking anything I tossed on the platter … all my music sounded simply wonderful. Clean and ever so there with a lively presence that was fast on its feet… pace and rhythm.  Details were in evidence and aplenty, though they were not forced or in the least bit analytical. Bass was deep, solid, and propulsive. Stable as all get out as well…I could find nothing to criticize as the combo simply played my music in a way that was fun and engaging.

Stable. Articulate. Fun. Resolving. Engaging. Style. Beautiful.

This is what I heard, what I appreciated… how I interpreted what happened with my music. I enjoyed my time with this system… a true reflection of Italian mastery." - Dave Clark

"The DS-1000, besides being an extremely modern piece of high-end audio kit, is a very musical product. Its reason for being seems to be the enjoyment of music and the fact that it can stream music and decode files either when connected wired and wirelessly is the icing on the cake.
To me, this musicality is the highest compliment I can give an audio component.

Its price is not just competitive, it is reasonable when one considers not only the performance, but the features offered by this highly recommendable component. Bravissimo Gold Note!" - Tom Lyle

"This is a very special audio component that will fit the contexts and priorities of many system owners.

Gold Note with the PH-10 effectively manages its own attempt to please as many of the people for as long as possible. This phono pre-amplifier punches above its crowded price point. On top of that it adapts to whatever cartridge the listener is using this month, so it's future proofed against cartridge upgrades. The promise of upgrade accessories implies it's future proofed against being upgraded from purchaser's systems.

At this price point the Gold Note PH-10 is unique in its achievements." - Mark Wheeler

As a true Analogue expert, Geoff Husband has seen and used many turntables so we are particularly happy to know that he found mediterraneo to be a balanced, all-around performer!

"More general comparisons spring to mind, it has great pace without being frenetic (for example an Orbe lacks pace and a Xerxes lives for it), it keeps vocalists centre stage rather than pushing them slightly back like the Pro-Ject and has a nice way with imaging, not the biggest or widest soundstage, but something realistic and more important utterly stable – no doubt helped by the speed accuracy. I enjoyed all kinds of music with it – Jazz, Metal, Stravinsky, Gershwin you name it and at no time could I pin it down as a 'rockers' turntable, or something for chamber orchestra, it just handled it all with aplomb." - Geoff Husband

"We have had the PH-10 here for a decent enough time for me to say that, at $1390, it is a no-brainer. The unit is elegant throughout, works as advertised, and serves the music as any phono stage should. Not sure how they are doing this for so little compared to the stages above it price-wise, but damn. Highly recommended!" - Dave Clark

PH-10 | TONE Audio - Exceptional Value Awards 2017

PH-10 is awarded by a real vinyl Guru on TONE Audio:

"It’s tough to believe that this is such a reasonably priced phonostage; it reveals a level of musical information I would expect from a much more expensive component.
We’ve used $60,000 phonostages that didn’t have this level of adjustment […] Gold Note’s PH-10 phonostage comes right out of the box with top in class performance, yet it offers the ability to expand it considerably further. What else could you ask for?

I am happy to give the PH-10 one of our last Exceptional Value Awards 2017. It is well deserving." - Jeff Dorgay

John Darko at DAR introduces the new Super Integrated Amplifier IS-1000:

"After twenty five years working the more traditional end of the high-end audio business – turntables, pre- and power amplifiers, loudspeakers – Florence’s Gold Note is set to introduce its first super integrated amplifier. The IS-1000 will house pre- and power amplifier stages, MM/MC phono stage, DAC and network streamer, all in a single box. Just add loudspeakers and an internet connection." - John Darko

PH-10 won the OUTSTANDING PRODUCT award!

"With 6 EQ patterns, 4 choices of gain and 9 impedance settings, this new baby from Gold Note is quite an amazing product even without any of the module upgrades, meaning for a very reasonable £1315.20 you can get serious vinyl speed, depth, detail and transparency, a sound that far belies its modest price.
This machine is very highly recommended and I suggest you take a listen if you are in the process of purchasing a phono-stage, whatever the price."
