Like new Gold Note's Award Winning PH-10 Phono stage in black: Opened box for inspection. Ready to go!
THE FIRST PHONO STAGE WITH 2 INPUTS AND 6 EQ CURVES 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 high quality coils, capacitors and resistors.
The EQ curves are implemented using analog circuitry realised with last generation integrated circuits and low noise components because we believe in the absolute superiority of a fully analog design over digital equalizers. Instead of the antiquated and inefficient electromechanical switches, we opted for electronic switches to select the curves: in this way PH-10 can preserve unaltered the audio signal and safeguard its purity without giving up on the use of digital technology. The use of electronic switches also helps shorten the paths of the audio signal to obtain greater efficiency and less dispersion. Digital technology is used only for real-time management of the display.
PH-10 is controlled via knob and display using a sophisticated micro-controller to select the functions through our custom firmware that is loaded on a micro SD dedicated flash memory and can be updated easily via PC. The micro-controller is separated and independent from the audio signal path to guarantee always clear and pure sound.
Once the tonearms are connected, PH-10 can be set 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] that will let you adjust the preamp to match it with a large number of cartridges in a quick, easy way.
HANDCRAFTED IN ITALY WITH PASSION AND TECHNOLOGY The secret behind PH-10? We design, craft and assemble every single part!
Every PH-10 is handmade in Italy with the best audio grade components to ensure flawless music playback.
The level of quality meets the highest standard throughout the entire production: from the CNC machining to the assembly and finally to the electronic tests at the PC.
To maximize the performance of the PH-10, we developed PSU-10, the dedicated external super power supply that allows PH-10 to achieve its fullest potential reaching an even higher degree of musical realism, better dynamics and deeper three-dimensionality.
