The next generation Phono Stage
“PH-10 won me over with features and sound”
Matej Isak Mono & Stereo
the first phono stage with 2 inputs and 6 eq curves
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 high quality coils, capacitors and resistors.
PH-10 is controlled via knob and display using a sophisticated micro-controller to select the functions through our custom firmware that is loaded on a micro SD dedicated flash memory and can be updated easily via PC. The micro-controller is separated and independent from the audio signal path to guarantee always clear and pure sound.
Once the tonearms are connected, PH-10 can be set with 4 different GAIN levels [-3dB, 0dB, +3dB, 6dB] to match precisely the output level of any MM or MC cartridge.
The perfect setup is guaranteed with 9 different LOAD options [10Ω, 22Ω, 47Ω, 100Ω, 220Ω, 470Ω, 1000Ω, 22KΩ, 47KΩ] that will let you adjust the preamp to match it with a large number of cartridges in a quick, easy way.
“We’ve used $60,000 phonostages that didn’t have this level of adjustment” — Jeff Dorgay TONE AUDIO
6 eq curves to deliver outstanding performances
You will finally be able to switch from the internationally recognized RIAA curve, to the DECCA-LONDON or the AMERICAN-CBS-COLUMBIA curve, always graphically shown on the front display. And there's more, because you will also be able to “enhance” each curve with a modern Gold Note proprietary design for superior dynamic and powerful results.
AUDIOPHILE in every possible way
PH-10 shows every detail on its 2,8” colour display powered by Gold Note proprietary SKC - Single Knob Control technology – an intuitive control system developed to easily browse and select all the unit's functions.
The unit can be externally powered by a dedicated inductive Dual-Mono PSU to enhance even more the performance.
“With 6 EQ patterns, 4 choices of gain and 9 impedance settings, this new baby from Gold Note is quite an amazing product” —
Janine Smith HIFI PIG
“It sounds great, involving, with potent dynamics, a sense of three dimensionality and of so called balanced transparency, that is not even scenting towards the brittle realms. A thrill and a fill!” —
Matej Isak MONO & STEREO
6 EQ CURVES
Select the record modulation between the internationally recognized RIAA, DECCA-LONDON or AMERICAN-CBS-COLUMBIA curves, and then “enhance” it with our cutting-edge proprietary technology to achieve the best vinyl experience.
2 SEPARATE INPUTS
With two separate RCA inputs you can connect two different tonearms and adjust settings independently for each single cartridge
4 GAIN options
PH-10 offers 4 different selectable GAIN levels -3dB, 0dB, +3dB, +6dB to precisely match any kind of output level for MM and MC cartridges
9 LOAD options
Perfect matching is easy and quick to achieve with 9 different load options 10Ω, 22Ω, 47Ω, 100Ω, 220Ω, 470Ω, 1000Ω, 22KΩ, 47KΩ
ELEGANT & FUNCTIONAL
Made of solid machined aluminium, the shell body guarantees low frequency resonance, feedback vibrational control and low magnetic inertial field
DISPLAY & Knob
SKC is a unique technology that combined with a TFT display allows quick control of the functions through the single knob joggle
Gold Note modular design allows upgrades with external units, including the External Inductive Power Supply and the Curve Equalizer Extender
