A MOST AWARDED PHONO STAGE
The Absolute Sound states: The Gold Note PH-10 is a really fine phono stage, and one that provides and outstanding value proposition. Its beautifully designed and executed with high-level fit and finish. Its innovative front display and single knob control interface makes selecting and setting its comprehensive functions and features a breeze.
Like a fine wine or fine car, the PH-10 satisfies, both in the moment and as a lasting memory.
THE EXTRAORDINARY PHONO STAGE
The 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 the best components to recreate the musical event in the most natural way possible.
To control the PH-10 Gold Note developed the user-friendly Single Knob Control (SKC). Combined with the color display this rotary joggle allows quick adjustments of any function in real-time during music playback.
The PH-10 lets you select the most appropriate EQ curve for every record: the RIAA, the DECCA LONDON, or the AMERICAN COLUMBIA, and all selection appears clearly on the display.
Each curve can be “enhanced” with our proprietary technology inspired by the Neumann Cutting Lathe for superior dynamic and musicality.
THE PERFECT CARTRIDGE MATCHING
9 different LOAD options [10Ω, 22Ω, 47Ω, 100Ω, 220Ω, 470Ω, 1000Ω, 22kΩ, 47kΩ] and 4 different selectable GAIN options [-3dB, 0dB, + 3dB, +6dB] will let you adjust the preamplifier accurately to achieve the best sound experience with any kind of MM and MC cartridges.
CONNECT TWO SEPARATE TONEARMS
With his two separate RCA inputs, the PH-10 can be connected to two different tonearms, each with independently adjustable settings stored into memory, even when the unit is switched off, guaranteeing flexibility and impressive user-friendliness.
PH-10 AT ITS BEST
To maximize the performance of the PH-10 we also developed the PSU-10, a dedicated external super inductive power supply that allows the phono stage to achieve its fullest potential, reaching an even higher degree of musical realism, better dynamics, and greater three-dimensionality sound.
