Gold Note -  IS-1000 "alt i ett" produkt fortsetter sin seiersgang verden rundt

Integrert forsterker, DSD DAC, Streamer, Radio, RIAA

For de som ikke ønsker å bruke CD spiller eller platespiller men kun streame, høre på radio mm... - så er denne komponenten alt de trenger - i tillegg til høyttalere. 

Litt som før i tiden egentlig - da mange kun hadde en radio i stua.  Og med dagens streamere så har man jo mulighet for internettradio med mengder av radiokanaler fra hele verden.


a complete All-In-One SUPER AMPLIFIER  

Imagine a complete High-End stereo system enclosed in a beautiful aluminum chassis carved in bold Italian style: this is IS-1000.

With the knowledge and the experience developed in over 20 years of research, we are now able to offer an all-in-one solution powered by the most advanced technologies and components to achieve true audiophile quality sound.

IS-1000 is an advanced fully integrated amplifier that redefines the way music playback is experienced to achieve a new pinnacle in High-End audio, seamlessly merging a Preamplifier, a Power Amplifier, a Phono Preamp, a DAC and a Streamer in a unique, complete source.

The refined technical innovations of IS-1000 come directly from our flagship models, like the preamplifier P-1000 and the power amplifier PA-1175 MKII which inspired us to create a new source that would integrate the analogue components of a high quality amplifier with the digital technologies of a Streamer and a DAC to deliver outstanding performances.

IS-1000 is a Roon Ready device, fully compatible with multi-room systems and with a quick plug&play installation: simply plug IS-1000 to the main A/C, connect it to your network (Wi-Fi or Ethernet) then to the speakers and start to explore the endless possibilities of music, streaming from Tidal & MQA via Tidal, Qobus, Spotify & Spotify Connect and Deezer with Roon and our App [available for iOS and Android] or browsing your collection of digital music stored on NAS, HDD and USB sticks (DSD 64 native and via DoP on USB and LAN, PCM up to 24/192 with exclusive possible option to interchange the DAC converter PCB).

You don’t need anything else to experience at home the pleasure of high definition audio, just IS-1000 and your speakers. If you love vinyl records, connect your turntable directly into IS-1000 to use the Phono Preamp we designed and engineered, it’s really that simple.

The new Class A/B amplifier with 125/250W @ 8/4Ω per channel (optionally available 150/300W @ 8/4Ω) guarantees the pure sound, vivid dynamics and the finest detail, offering a wide range of digital and analogue inputs to assure total control and freedom to upgrade, expand or connect more devices to IS-1000.

IS-1000 features 6 digital inputs (PCM up to 24bit/192kHz):
- 3 optical (TOS)
- 1 Coaxial (COAX)
- 1 USB type A (DSD 64 native and via DoP)
- 1 Ethernet LAN & Wi-Fi (DSD 64 native and via DoP)

and 3 analogue inputs:

- 1 XLR balanced
- 2 RCA (1 Line & Phono MM/MC and 1 Line & AV-Ind)

To offer the best versatility it also features 2 analogue outputs - 1 RCA variable and 1 RCA fixed - to connect your source to IS-1000 or to match it with your active speakers and even with power amplifiers.

The IS-1000 is a radical, innovative solution dedicated to audio enthusiasts looking for a real high quality All-In-One source.

John Darko at DAR introduces the new Super Integrated Amplifier IS-1000:

"After twenty five years working the more traditional end of the high-end audio business – turntables, pre- and power amplifiers, loudspeakers – Florence’s Gold Note is set to introduce its first super integrated amplifier. The IS-1000 will house pre- and power amplifier stages, MM/MC phono stage, DAC and network streamer, all in a single box. Just add loudspeakers and an internet connection." - John Darko




Sound Stage announces IS-1000 and its features:

"Gold Note’s design for the IS-1000 features an all-in-one solution – barring speakers – with a high quality 120 watts per channel integrated amplifier based on the abovementioned high-end electronics, an MM/MC phono stage, a digital-to-analogue converter and a streamer. The unit is Roon Ready and is capable of streaming from Tidal with MQA via Tidal, Qobuz, Spotify, Spotify Connect, Airplay, V-Tuner and Deezer with Roon. Gold Note’s iOS and Android App aids in navigating through your file collection whether stored on a hard drive, an NAS or a USB thumb drive at resolutions up to DSD 64 native and via DoP on USB and LAN and PCM up to 24-bit/192kHz." - SoundStage

Du verden for en komplett sak!

Så langt har vi mest brukt IS-1000 som et senter i forbindelse med TV og tilkoplet CD spiller.

Den gamle DAC/Forsterkerløsningen som jeg har skrevet mange godord om ble avløst av IS-1000 og dette var virkelig mange klasser opp - på alle områder.

TV-lyden er ikke til å kjenne igjen med tanke på gjennomsiktighet og klangformidling.

Avspilling via tilkoplet CD spiller - superb!!
Tonale kvaliteter er meget gode, gjennomsiktighet og oppløsning er av meget høy kvalitet.

Streaming - ja den har vel alle mulighetene som er interessante

Radio - fasinerende å høre på radio fra all verdens kriker og kroker

Jeg kommer tilbake til en mer omfattende rapport asap
