Gold Note P-1000: total control over your music

Gold Note P-1000: total control over your music

FIRENZE, Italy: Gold Note – the Italian High-End manufacturer based in Firenze – is introducing P-1000, the first line preamplifier they ever made, available from September at a MSRP price of 5.850,00€/6.520,00$ (6.500,00€/7.250,00$ for the P-1000 with digital input and DAC available on demand).

P-1000 is an innovative ultra balanced Class-A preamplifier powered by a new proprietary Six Gain Stage design featuring Relays & Optical ALPS Encoder volume control.

Having a Triple Linear Transformer power supply, P-1000 offers 10 independent stereo inputs: 5 fully balanced XLR, 5 RCA and even an optional digital input available on demand.

The exclusive Gold Note Ultra-Balanced design developed with Six Single Gain stages enables incredible low distortion and extended linear bandwidth for true superior musicality.

The preamp features a complete series of settings to satisfy the most demanding systems: Mono/Stereo, Left/Right channel swap, Absolute Phase Swap (0° to 180°), Over-boost, fine Balance tuning.

The Overboost function is designed to drive speakers that require robust power supplies providing even greater energy in the lower range of frequencies and can be turned off or set on two different modes to integrate seamlessly into a wide variety of systems.

The settings are stored in memory together with the volume level for every single audio input to allow a better experience and for quick adjustments.

Maurizio Aterini, founder of Gold Note, when asked about the introduction of the new preamplifier said: “We are finally ready to complete our line of electronics with the P-1000, something our customers have long waited for and we are proud to be among the few manufacturers of High End audio equipment that can offer a complete system – from digital sources to amplifiers and speakers – in order to deliver superior sound quality.”

P-1000 is available worldwide through Gold Note official dealer network.
