The Gold Note 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.

You will finally be able to switch from the internationally recognized RIAA curve, to the DECCA-LONDON or the AMERICAN-CBS-COLUMBIA curve, always graphically shown on the front display.

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.

PH-10 shows every detail on its 2,8” colour display powered by Gold Note proprietary SKC - Single Knob Control technology – an intuitive control system developed to easily browse and select all the unit's functions. The unit can be externally powered by the dedicated external inductive power supply PSU-10 to enhance the performance even more .

Made of solid machined aluminium, the shell body guarantees low frequency resonance, feedback vibrational control and low magnetic inertial field. PH-10 is available in Black, Gold or Silver finishes
