Gold Note PH-10 Phono Stage

The PH-10 is a high configurable MM and MC phono preamplifier. The large user friendly display makes adjustment incredibly easy – so there is no need to power the system down, disconnect your phono stage and remove the lid to adjust awkward dip switches or get access to the rear panel or underside – it’s all done from the knob on the front panel and couldn’t be easier.

There are 2 RCA inputs on the rear of the PH-10 so if you have 2 decks or a deck with 2 arms you can connect both into the PH-10 at once.  There is 2 sets of outputs with RCA and XLR (this is a fully balanced output as well), along with a PSU input for the PSU-10 Power Supply

Performance is superb, it’s a common theme to find good turntables in systems where the performance they can offer is being held back by a phono stage that simply isn’t good enough for the job – say hello to the PH-10!

Someone could start with the PH-10 and when budget permits you can add the PSU-10 power supply – by feeding the PH-10 with a cleaner supply in a separate box the impact this makes is not subtle!

From Gold Note…….

The 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 the best components to recreate the musical event in the most natural way possible. Being the first amplification stage of the audio chain, the phono stage assumes great importance and this is why the PH-10 offers the very best sound and versatility using the latest technology.

To control the PH-10 we developed the user friendly Single Knob Control (SKG). Combined with the color display this rotary joggle allows quick adjustments of any function in real time during music playback.

The PH-10 lets you select the most appropriate EQ curve for every record: the RIAA, the DECCA-LONDON or the AMERICAN- CBS-COLUMBIA. All selection appears clearly as a graph on the large display. Each curve is enhanced by a modern Gold Note proprietary design that derived from the Neumann master cut machine project for superior dynamic and high-frequency extension.

The perfect cartridge matching is guaranteed with up to 9 different LOAD options [10Ω, 22Ω, 47Ω, 100Ω, 220Ω, 470Ω, 1000Ω, 22KΩ, 47KΩ] and 4 different selectable GAIN levels [-3dB, 0dB, +3dB, +6dB] that will let you adjust the preamplifier accurately to achieve the best sound experience with any kind of MM and MC cartridges.

With his two separate RCA inputs the PH-10 can be connected to two different tonearms, each with independently adjustable settings stored into memory, even when the unit is switched off. This guarantees to the audiophile a unique flexibility and impressive user-friendliness.

To maximise the performance of the PH-10, we also developed the PSU-10, a dedicated external super inductive power supply that allows the PH-10 to achieve its fullest potential, reaching an even higher degree of musical realism, better dynamics and greater three-dimensionality sound.
