“The IS-1000 is the perfect combination of everything you need with nothing you don’t.” - Jeff Dorgay

"Connectivity is comprehensive and I can see many having the IS-1000 as the hub of their entertainment system and having it not only for playing tunes saved on NAS/HDD or from streaming services, but also for putting the television through." - Stuart Smith

“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

“One of the most important and overarching aspects of the IS-1000’s performance is that it feels like a single cohesive unit rather than a collection of elements partnered together in a nice-looking box. This isn’t a traditional integrated amplifier, but one that reflects the requirements of audio enthusiasts in 2018, and if you are looking for an amp with a built-in network music streaming source, it makes a great deal of sense.“ - Ed Sulley

“If you own the Gold Note PH-10 phono stage, this upgrade is A MUST, as it will immensely improve the already amazing sound you get from the phono stage. And if you are considering a new phono stage, and Gold Note PH-10 is on your short list of candidates, I urge you try and audition it together with the PSU-10 power supply. I am confident it will blow away the competition, which may cost thousands more. It is that good of a combination and I cannot praise it highly enough.” - Alex Gorouvein

“Gold Note’s PH-10 is a real gem for the money, it sounds exceptionally good…A real highlight of modern analogue technology, which deserves a penetrating recommendation.” - Roland Kraft

“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

“The few will stick with separates, enjoying the thrill of the chase – the sport of hifi. The majority just want to plug and play. A single-box solution that pushes performance above the 90th percentile offered by separates but without the hassle and the tyranny of choice. Out of the window goes the hifi rack, a mess of wires and the clutter. A streamlined hifi solution for modern homes.“ - Phil Wright

“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, 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

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

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"

PH-10 wins the Writer's Choice Award 2017 on Positive Feedback!

"Truly, the Gold Note PH-10 Phono Stage is a stunning bargain, and the partnering Gold Note Mediterraneo turntable is an absolute delight.
I'm fully confident that anyone hearing the Gold Note PH-10 phono stage and Mediterraneo turntable will agree that both deliver sweet, sterling sound and exceptional value. Decidedly worthy of my highest recommendation and Writer's Choice Award!”

DS-1000 | Enjoy the Music

"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

PH-10 | Positive Feedback - Highly Recommended Product

PH-10 is Highly Recommended on Positive Feedback!

"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
