REVIEW OF PH-10 PHONO STAGE WITH PSU-10 POWER SUPPLY BY MARJA & HENK

“Turning the phono stage around again, we look at the front. At the left there’s the status LED followed by a 2.8” TFT color display and the SKC knob. Our review sample was finished in a stylish golden anodized skin and in combination with the fish- bone slots, this 20 x 8 x 26cm apparatus scored high in the looks department. We also received the matching PSU-10 external power supply. Matching here meant both electrical and in appearance and foot print.

In summary, it is a ‘you can’t have enough transformers’ affair delivering +12V and +5V for logic and ±14V for analog including the inductive filter. These voltages are transported to the PH-10 by an 8-lead umbilical located at the back of the PSU-10 above the IEC receptacle next to the master switch. With looks and size matching the PH-10, it is tempting to dock both but that is not recommended. Gold Note recommend instead to place the power supply left of the phono stage as far as possible. In a rack that would mean a different shelf. The umbilical cord we received was 1 meter in length.”
