Gold Note PH-10  Phono Stage MM/MC Pre-Amp

WOW! That is the simplest way to describe the sound of this gorgeous Italian hand made Gold Note phono stage... the music just flows out of a massive soundstage full of natural, detailed sound. There is a reason that the Gold Note has got nearly every reviewer lucky enough to hear one gushing its praises... and then there is the tremendous feature set :  2 independent inputs, 6 EQ patterns, 4 choices of gain (41db - 71db) and 9 impedance settings, RCA and BALANCED XLR outputs... this new baby from Gold Note is a stunning product.

AN AUDIOPHILE CLASSIC IN EVERY POSSIBLE WAY

PH-10 shows every detail on its 2.8” colour display powered by Gold Note proprietary SKC - Single Knob Control technology – an intuitive control system developed to easily browse and select all the unit's functions.

The unit can also be externally powered by a dedicated inductive Dual-Mono PSU to enhance even more the performance.

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 high quality coils, capacitors and resistors.

PH-10 is controlled via knob and display using a sophisticated micro-controller to select the functions through our custom firmware that is loaded on a micro SD dedicated flash memory and can be updated easily via PC. The micro-controller is separated and independent from the audio signal path to guarantee always clear and pure sound.

Once the tonearms are connected, PH-10 can be set with 4 different GAIN levels [-3dB, 0dB, +3dB, 6dB] to match precisely the output level of any MM or MC cartridge.

The perfect setup is guaranteed with 9 different LOAD options [10Ω, 22Ω, 47Ω, 100Ω, 220Ω, 470Ω, 1000Ω, 22KΩ, 47KΩ] that will let you adjust the preamp to match it with a large number of cartridges in a quick, easy way.

You will also finally be able to switch from the internationally recognized RIAA curve, to the DECCA-LONDON or the AMERICAN-CBS-COLUMBIA curve, always graphically shown on the front display. And there's more, because you will also be able to “enhance” each curve with a modern Gold Note proprietary design for superior dynamic and powerful results.
