Gold Note PH-1000 Phono Stage


What if you could play any LP ever pressed with the correct equalisation? And what if you could adjust or even modify that equalisation curve on the go? Or adjust any of the settings using a simple knob without messing around dip switches and external components? That’s the new PH-1000, our ultra-low noise phono stage designed to be easy to use and easy to love.

To sum it up, the PH-1000 is a premium phono stage that combines a digital interface with a Class-A discrete component design, offering the widest range of equalisations, gain, load, and capacitance adjustments to correctly match any cartridge ever developed. It doesn’t just come with 18 EQ curves available for Stereo, Mono and 78rpm records - it allows you to adjust (yes, actually adjust) the equalisation to virtually recreate any EQ curve ever used to press a record.

It also boasts a headphone output with dedicated volume control, 3 independent inputs (RCA and XLR), and the Single Knob Control (the signature rotary control) that allows you to navigate the menu on the display to change settings while playing music. There’s more, such as the external load, Stereo/Mono control, phase inversion, L/R channel swap, and Rumble subsonic filter.

Not to mention that it can optionally feature a built-in Class-A line preamplifier - what more could you want?
The PH-1000 is simply the best Phono Stage we have ever created, a unique piece of audio engineering designed to be innovative in every possible way and 100% made in Italy. Featuring Class-A exclusive discrete components, a Class-A headphone output, +40 EQ curves preset, 4 custom EQ curves manually adjustable, and the high-quality Class-A line preamp which comes as an optional.

For the first time ever, you will be able to play virtually any record the way it’s meant to be thanks to more than 40 EQ curves available, or even customise the EQ curves manually by adjusting three main parameters – that’s why the PH-1000 is a complete game-changer, opening a new era in vinyl reproduction.

PH-1000 & PH-1000 LINE

The PH-1000 is available in two models, the PH-1000 and the PH-1000 LINE, with the LINE model featuring a built-in Class-A line preamplifier of the highest quality. Turning 1x RCA and 1x XLR into line stage inputs to be used with other audio sources (DACs, Streamers, CD players).

The line preamplifier stage allows you to control the volume directly on the PH-1000 meaning you can connect it directly to your power amp and thus create the shortest analogue audio path ever - the shortest the audio path, the better the quality of the audio signal.  

That's the reason why both models feature the headphone output with dedicated Class-A volume control, making it possible for you to create an even shorter audio path and listen to your records simply connecting your turntable to the PH-1000, and then adding your headphones.  From the vinyl straight to your ears in just 4 stages.

The level of quality meets the highest standard throughout the entire production: from the aluminium ultra-solid chassis machined with precision to the electronic components and circuitry that undergo strict QC computer-controlled tests.

With 14 Gain and 14 Load levels, as well as 6 Capacitance options dedicated to MM cartridges, it is the ideal phono stage for high-performance analogue systems, capable of driving even the most exotic of cartridges with perfect synergy, making the PH-1000 a professional instrument for high- end studio recording.

On top of that, you can change settings and make ultra-fine adjustments, including the EQ curve, on the go by simply using the SKC and the display as you are playing music. Our innovative technology allows the best ease of use while preserving entirely the sound quality as it works in the analogue domain: the interface is digital and independent from the audio path, which is completely analogue. The result is an ultra- low noise phono stage with high gain and no audio filters.

All the functionalities are in fact managed through discrete audio-grade components and sealed single switches, always shortening the signal path to deliver superior audio quality and extract even the finest details from the vinyl record. Powered by our custom firmware, the PH-1000 can be easily updated via computer when necessary.

The PH-1000 offers 3 independent inputs, two RCA and one XLR. There are also 2 other inputs, one RCA and one XLR, that can be used either for the external load plugs for even finer control of the Load or as line inputs on the PH-1000 with Preamp.

Add the other functionalities, such as the Headphone Output, the Stereo/Mono control with phase inversion, the L/R Channel Swap and the Rumble Subsonic Filter and here you have it, the most advanced phono stage on the market.

The level of quality meets the highest standard throughout the entire production: from the aluminium ultra-solid chassis machined with precision to the electronic components and circuitry that undergo strict QC computer-controlled tests.

RIAA, Capitol, Columbia/CBS, Deutsche Grammophon, Decca London USA, Decca London UK and Decca Mono 78rpm,
Epic, HMW, Mercury, RCA Victor, Philips, Elektra, L’Oliseau-Lyre, Parlophone, and more. Each curve can be “enhanced” with our proprietary technology inspired by the Neumann Cutting Lathe for superior dynamic and musicality.

The PH-1000 shows every detail on the colour display powered by our proprietary firmware. With the SKC [Single Knob Control technology] and the display, you have an intuitive system to easily control the phono stage and quickly make fine-adjustments without even interrupting the playback.

You can now enjoy the shortest audio path ever with the PH-1000, your turntable and your headphones – that’s all you need for the audio signal to go from the vinyl directly into your headphones without the need of additional stages.

For the most demanding audiophiles, the PH-1000 can also be further enhanced with our external power supply PSU-1250 / PSU- 1000, or even the external tube output stage TUBE-1012 / TUBE-1006, to reach the highest level of musical realism in terms of dynamic, details, and imaging.
