THE EXTRAORDINARY PHONO STAGE
The PH-10 is an ultra-versatile phono preamplifier that offers unique features, including EQ CURVES, LOAD and GAIN adjustments: a fully analogue design engineered exclusively with the best components to recreate the musical event in the most natural way possible. Being the first amplification stage of the audio chain, the phono stage assumes great importance and this is why the PH-10 offers the very best sound and versatility using the latest technology.
To control the PH-10 we developed the user friendly Single Knob Control (SKG). Combined with the color display this rotary joggle allows quick adjustments of any function in real time during music playback.
The PH-10 lets you select the most appropriate EQ curve for every record: the RIAA, the DECCA LONDON or the AMERICAN COLUMBIA. All selection appears clearly as a graph on the large display. Each curve is enhanced by a modern Gold Note proprietary design that derived from the Neumann master cut machine project for superior dynamic and high-frequency extension.
CONNECT TWO SEPARATE TONEARMS
The perfect cartridge matching is guaranteed with up to 9 different LOAD options [10Ω, 22Ω, 47Ω, 100Ω, 220Ω, 470Ω, 1000Ω, 22KΩ, 47KΩ] and 4 different selectable GAIN levels [-3dB, 0dB, +3dB, +6dB] that will let you adjust the preamplifier accurately to achieve the best sound experience with any kind of MM and MC cartridges.
With his two separate RCA inputs the PH-10 can be connected to two different tonearms, each with independently adjustable settings stored into memory, even when the unit is switched off. This guarantees to the audiophile a unique flexibility and impressive user-friendliness.
To maximise the performance of the PH-10, we also developed the PSU-10, a dedicated external super inductive power supply that allows the PH-10 to achieve its fullest potential, reaching an even higher degree of musical realism, better dynamics and greater three-dimensionality sound.
If you are after a higher level of performance to take your analogue setup to a new height, then take a look at our flagship phono stage, the PH-1000. With 3 separate inputs, infinite EQ curve setups, a high-quality Class-A preamp stage and a fully analogue design, it’s the new pinnacle of analogue reproduction.Discover
