„As promised by its design brief, the A6 EVO delivers. It’s ideally suited for medium-size rooms where nothing bigger is necessary or even welcome. It’s lovely when a concept is so clear about what it wants, then so clear about giving us just that, exactly. Being rather handsome to boot then comes as a bonus…“ - Srajan Ebaen
“Without wrestling your ears into submission they encourage a browse through the record collection and the ripped music library and my time with them here was a real pleasure. For me, the sign that a review item has really hit the spot is that I am genuinely reluctant to see it leave our home, and that was certainly the case with the A6 Evos.” - Chris Kelly
Very positive review of the Mediterraneo turntable with B-7 Ceramic tonearm and Machiavelli Gold cartridge (text only in German).
“If your budget affords you the luxury, get both if you can! Bravo to Gold Note for making this a two box solution though, because it does give you a chance to grow as your system improves. The bigger your re- cord collection, the more this purchase justifies itself. Highly recommended!” - Shannon Swetlishnoff
"The made in Florence, Italy Donatello Gold moving coil cartridge is easy to recommend at and beyond its $1000 price point. I can’t imagine anyone buying it would be disappointing based upon expectations at this price point and well beyond it. The price is, indeed, right! In fact it's downright righteous!" - Michael Fremer
“This turntable offers a lively performance but never forgets to pick out essential detail. Well proportioned and balanced across the soundstage, the Valore 425 Plus is an accomplished performer.” - Paul Rigby
„With their PA-1175 MKII and particularly so when bridged, Gold Note have introduced a new voicing to slightly compensate their usual warmer more generous cursive signature. Now in an all-Gold Note system of separates, there should be a very adroit balance of elegance, resolution and control.“ - Srajan Ebaen
Very positive review by Audio Test (text only in German)!
“Fit and finish are exemplary and set up is a doddle. There are lots of turntables available on the market and I can quite honestly say that this is up there with the best-looking turntables I have come across.” - Stuart Smith
"The Gold Note DAC gives a full and rewarding accounting of music. The slightly warmer tonal balance of the IS-1000 overall ensured that listening to streaming and digitally recorded music was pleasingly balanced, and always satisfying.” - Dean Seislove
“We think the PH-10 should be on anyone’s shortlist when considering a (new) phono stage. The addition of the PSU-10 lifts the PH-10 into another league instantly. All in all, we loved what we heard and are convinced that anyone who experiences the PH-10/PSU-10 will fall in love too.” - Marja&Henk
“Gold Note Valore 425 Plus is an excellent and inherently honest performer that doesn‘t impose itself on the sound of LP.” - Alan Sircom
“I found nothing but pleasure listening through the Gold Note PH10. I really could find no vices – just music delivered as I love to hear it. And then I added the PSU via the dedicated umbilical. Now all the noisy power stuff was handled away from the delicate audio circuits and we were in a completely different league of music making. The same selection of albums was played and sounded even more engaging and indeed compelling.“ - Chris Kelly
Very positive review of the phono stage and external power supply combo!

A very positive review with many great pictures of the dream team PH-10 and PSU-10 by Marcin Olszewski from Soundrebels, text in polish.
„The particular lesson to take away is that God Note’s all-out player/DAC is one beast of a performer. At €11’240 all in, it’s big time stuff both physically, fysically and the other way around. (…) This multi-tier upgrade path can be applied across the range except for their power amplifier. That really is a unique selling proposition. It’s also a rather forward-thinking strategy. Way to go, Golden Squad of Florence!“ - Srajan Ebaen
“Modern high-end audio lifestyle products need to be feature packed and offer a luxurious appeal without looking bland. They need to be aesthetically and aurally pleasing. This is the modern integrated amplifier executed right! It got style, a powerful inner core and a timeless Italian aura enriched by the powerful DNA.” - Matej Isak
"Eigentlich ist „Vollverstärker“ eine Beleidigung für das Gerät. Ja, es vollverstärkt auch, im Grunde seines italienischen Herzens aber ist der IS-1000 der Traum vieler Musikhörer: eine Kiste, alles drin. Sehr gut, vor allem in Anbetracht des luxuriösen Funktionsumfangs des Gerätes.” - Holger Barke
