The PH-1000 is simply the best Phono Stage Gold Note has ever created, a unique piece of audio engineering designed to be innovative in every possible way and 100% made in Italy. Featuring Class-A exclusive discrete components, a Class-A headphone output, +40 EQ curves, 4 custom EQ curves manually adjustable, and the high-quality Class-A line preamp which comes as an option. Customise your vinyl experience For the first time ever, you will be able to play virtually any record the way it’s meant to be thanks to more than 40 EQ curves available, or even customize the EQ curves manually by adjusting three main parameters – that’s why the PH-1000 is a complete game-changer, opening a new era in vinyl reproduction. With 7 Gain and 12 Load levels, as well as 6 Capacitance options dedicated to MM cartridges, it is the ideal phono stage for high-performance analogue systems, capable of driving even the most exotic of cartridges with perfect synergy, making the PH-1000 a professional instrument for high-end studio recording. On top of that, you can change settings and make ultra-fine adjustments, including the EQ curve, on the go by simply using the SKC and the display as you are playing music. Our innovative technology allows the best ease of use while preserving entirely the sound quality as it works in the analogue domain: the interface is digital and independent from the audio path, which is completely analogue. The result is an ultra-low noise phono stage with high gain and no audio filters. All the functionalities are in fact managed through discrete audio-grade components and sealed single switches, always shortening the signal path to deliver superior audio quality and extract even the finest details from the vinyl record. Powered by Gold Note’s custom firmware, the PH-1000 can be easily updated via computer when necessary. Functionality first The PH-1000 offers 3 independent inputs, two RCA and one XLR. There are also 2 other inputs, one RCA and one XLR, that can be used either for the external load plugs for even finer control of the load or as line inputs on the PH-1000 with Preamp. Add the other functionalities, such as the Headphone Output, the Stereo/Mono control with phase inversion, the L/R Channel Swap and the Rumble Subsonic Filter and here you have it, the most advanced phono stage on the market. The level of quality meets the highest standard throughout the entire production: from the aluminum ultra-solid chassis machined with precision to the electronic components and circuitry that undergo strict QC computer-controlled tests. For the most demanding audiophiles, the PH-1000 can also be further enhanced with Gold Note’s external power supply PSU-1250/PSU-1000, or even the external tube output stage TUBE-1012/TUBE-1006, to reach the highest level of musical realism in terms of dynamic, details, and imaging.
