P-1000

Designed for High-End audio systems, P-1000 is an innovative Class-A line preamplifier powered by a new proprietary Six Gain Stage design and with Relays volume control and is made for real music lovers. Completing the 1000 series of Gold Note Hifi electronics, P-1000 is powered by a Triple Linear Transformer power supply and features 10 independent stereo inputs. Advanced functions paired with high-quality materials and an exquisite Italian product design turn P-1000 into a luxury solid state amplifier capable of top-class performances.

THE ULTRA-BALANCED PREAMPLIFIER

Designed for High-End systems, P-1000 is an innovative Class-A line preamplifier powered by a new proprietary Six Gain Stage design with Relays & Optical ALPS Encoder volume control and the best audio grade components to bring your system to a whole new level: the exclusive Gold Note Ultra-Balanced design featuring Six Single Gain stages provide incredible low distortion and extended linear bandwidth for true superior musicality.

P-1000 belongs to a new era of electronics where performance is combined with technology to offer the best possible musical experience: tradition and innovation meet to create a unique preamplifier with crystal clear sound. 

Featuring a Triple Linear Transformer power supply and 10 independent stereo inputs, 5 fully balanced XLR, 5 RCA (optionally even a digital input is available on demand). The preamplifier offers a large amount of functions: Mono/Stereo selection, Left/Right channel swap, Absolute Phase swap, Booster technology and fine Balance tuning.

To perfectly reproduce even old recordings, the preamplifier can in fact be set into Mono or Stereo mode. It also allows to swap the Left & Right channels to allow the reproduction of inverted recordings as well as the absolute phase swap from 0° to 180°.

For P-1000 we developed the Booster technology: a feature that will allow you to get the best out of speakers that require robust power supplies providing greater energy in a very specific range of low frequencies (the Booster is completely by-passed when set to OFF).

The preamplifier it’s easy to control with its large colour display showing all possible functions: it’s as easy as it gets, all the settings can be found on the display allowing quick and precise fine adjustments.

To enhance the performance of the P-1000 even further, it can be optionally matched with the external super inductive power supply PSU-1250/1000 and the valve output stage TUBE-1012/1006.
