PREVIEW OF REVIEW OF IS-1000 BY JEFF DORGAY

“We’ve just started to audition the Gold Note IS-1000 integrated amplifier 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.

The only thing Gold Note makes that we haven’t sampled is their speakers, but I’m going to stick my neck out and guess they are pretty good. Everything else we’ve heard from GN has been at the top of its class – turntables, phono cartridges, phono preamplifiers and now the IS-1000 integrated (which stands for integrated streaming). All good.”
