Gold Note PH-10 phono preamplifier NEW


Engineered to allow ultra precise adjustments and let you enjoy the best out of your system and with two separate RCA inputs you will be able to connect independently two different tonearms and tune it to match each cartridge specs. Once the tonearm is connected, PH-10 can be adjusted 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 -

INTRODUCING A NEW, AMAZING FEATURE

Select between 3 equalization curves and experience outstanding performances. You will finally be able to switch from the internationally recognized RIAA curve, to the DECCA-LONDON or the AMERICAN-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 WITH STYLE

Built from a solid block of machined aluminium and designed to elegantly cool the sophisticated electronics.

PH-10 shows every detail on its 2,8” colour display and everything is 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. PH-10 comes with a USB port to quickly update the unit via computer anytime new software is available

The unit can be externally powered by a dedicated inductive dual-mono power supply to enhance even more the audio performance

Advanced Features

TWO SEPARATE TONEARMS

With two separate RCA inputs you can connect two different tonearms and adjust settings independently for each single cartridge

SELECT THE GAIN STAGE

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
