THE ABSOLUTE SOUND

IS-1000 WINS EDITOR’S CHOICE AWARD

” A true multi-discipline, 125Wpe Class AB, DAC-equipped, network-audio performer that summoned a neutral personality throughout the greater middle range with intimations of extra bloom and body in the mid and upper bass. Orchestral music possessed a firm, of-a-piece signature that was detailed and layered yet stable and immersive. Treble octaves were smooth and non-fatiguing. Transient behaviour was unforced and natural, rather than overly etched and prickly. Italy’s Gold Note fulfils the expectations of enthusiasts across the generations by having produced a modern, musically engaging, and highly configurable amp.” Neil Gader
