“With its new flagship preamp, Gold Note has effectively silenced the critics. Built like a brick autopsy, the P-1000 is an aesthetically gorgeous, intuitively user friendly, and articulate solid-state preamplifier. Although its $6,250 USD asking price firmly places it in the luxury class of audio components, its connectivity, 4 different sound modes, and numerous upgrade paths make it worth every cent of its asking price.” - Suave Kajko
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
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
