Gold Note is introducing P-1000, the first line preamplifier they ever made, available from September. The Gold Note P-1000 is an innovative ultra-balanced Class-A preamplifier powered by a new proprietary Six Gain Stage design featuring Relays & Optical ALPS Encoder volume control. Having a Triple Linear Transformer power supply, P-1000 offers 10 independent stereo inputs: 5 fully balanced XLR, 5 RCA and even an optional digital input available on demand.
The exclusive Gold Note Ultra-Balanced design developed with Six Single Gain stages enables incredible 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 even 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 for quick adjustments.
