New Gold Note P-1000 MkII preamplifier

Gold Note is pleased to announce the immediate release of the line preamplifier P-1000 in its MkII version. The P-1000 MkII is part of the acclaimed Series 1000, the unique flagship Hi-Fi electronics line entirely hand-made in Italy. P-1000 MKII is an innovative ultra-balanced Class-A preamplifier powered by a Gold Note exclusive proprietary Six Gain Stage design featuring Relays & Optical ALPS Encoder volume control. Having a Triple Linear Transformer power supply, P-1000 MKII now offers 8 independent stereo inputs - 4 fully balanced XLR, 4 RCA and double RCA/XLR outputs.

The exclusive Gold Note Ultra-Balanced design developed with Six Single Gain stages enables incredibly low distortion and extended linear bandwidth for true superior musicality.
The preamp features a complete series of settings to satisfy the most demanding systems: Mono/Stereo, Left/Right channel swap, Absolute Phase Swap (0° to 180°), Over-boost, fine Balance tuning.

The Overboost function is designed to drive speakers that require robust power supplies providing greater energy in the lower range of frequencies and can be turned off or set on two different modes to integrate seamlessly into a wide variety of systems.

The settings are stored in memory together with the volume level for every single audio input to allow a better experience and quick and easy intuitive adjustments.

The P-1000 MkII is introduced with new aesthetics: the chassis has been updated to the unmatchable Gold Note look of the Series 1000. The preamplifier is built around an ultra-rigid steel chassis completed by massive panels of aluminium to avoid RFI and EMI. The new design includes hidden screws on the front, top and side panels and the iconic air vents design formed by the Catenary curve.
With three elegant finishes (black, silver or gold) the P-1000 MkII integrates itself seamlessly into the look of the flagship series that is characterized by a coherent design concept inspired by the native Italian design tradition. With Gold Note you will be able to create a complete system with a very unique harmonious and sophisticated look.

The high level of build quality of the P-1000 MkII is completed with meticulously selected top-level electronic components and flexible RCA and XLR connectors. To enhance the performance of the P-1000 MkII even further, it can be optionally matched with the external super inductive power supply PSU-1250/1000 and/or the valve output stage TUBE-1012/1006.
