The Gold Note PH-1000 is simply the best Phono Stage they have 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 preset, 4 custom EQ curves manually adjustable, and the high-quality Class-A line preamp which comes as an optional.
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 customise 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 14 Gain and 14 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 Gold Note 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. The 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 custom firmware, the PH-1000 can be easily updated via computer when necessary.

Each curve can be “enhanced” with Gold Note’s proprietary technology inspired by the Neumann Cutting Lathe for superior dynamic and musicality.
The PH-1000 shows every detail on the colour display powered by Gold Note’s proprietary firmware. With the SKC and the display, you have an intuitive system to easily control the phono stage and quickly make fine-adjustments without even interrupting the playback.
For the most demanding audiophiles, the Gold Note PH-1000 can also be further enhanced with the external power supply PSU-1250 or 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.
