“At $5,000 US, the DS-1000 is simply the best sounding and best equipped high-end DAC / streamer that I’ve had the pleasure of auditioning.  It also offers one of the best graphic interfaces on its front panel and in the Gold Note app, both very important factors in a streamer. Very well done Gold Note.” - Suave Kajko

“Competence from Florence: If you suspect jewellery or fashion cloths behind the label Gold Note from Italy, you’d be wrong: with the IS-1000, the High-End luxury manufacturer from Florence presents an all-rounder of superlatives” - Roland Kraft

“We’ve just started to audition the IS-1000 and it’s amore from the start.

Featuring an integral phono stage, based on the circuitry of the PH-10 that we already love, a built in DAC and streamer and a 125 watt per channel power amplifier that doubles down to 250 watts per channel into 4 ohms, This $5,000 beauty is a perfect solution for those wanting high quality, maximum versatility (did we tell you it has six digital inputs) and a convenient form factor. The only question left is: black or silver?” - Jeff Dorgay

“I had spent a long summer in Tuscany around Montalcino and subsequently seen Venice and Sicily. For hifi hardware, I'd now have this company's first new stereo amp in two decades. It's called PA-1175 where 'PA' is short for power amp. For the complete experience, one would obviously want an entire Gold Note system. It's something this company actually offer. Today we extricate from such an exclusive engagement their 175wpc/8Ω stereo amp. It scales to twice that power when bridged.” - Srajan Ebaen

“All for one, one for all - this slightly modified Musketeers motto fits well with the Gold Note IS-1000. Under his hood it combines the exquisite technology of four different top-class devices, resulting in an all-in-one solution on a high-end level: the IS-1000 acts as streamer, digital-to-analogue converter and integrated amplifier scores with digital interface diversity, turntable input and access to the online music services. Is there more? Yes! We discovered further delicacies in the test.” - Volker Frech

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
