The Gold Note P-1000 MkII (€6500) is part of the Italian high-end audio brand's hand-made flagship 1000 series. What you have here is an ultra-balanced Class-A preamplifier powered by Gold Note's proprietary Six Gain Stage design featuring relays and an optical ALPS Encoder volume control. We're told that this enables incredibly low distortion and extended linear bandwidth for true superior musicality, says Gold Note.

The preamp is said to feature 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, and fine Balance tuning.

The Over-boost function is designed to drive speakers that need more energy in the lower frequency range. It offers two different modes to enable it to integrate seamlessly into a wide variety of systems.

The settings are stored in the system's memory together with the volume level for every single audio input, thus allowing a better experience and quick and easy intuitive adjustments.

The preamplifier is built around an ultra-rigid steel chassis finished with massive aluminium panels to mitigate RFI and EMI interference. The new design includes hidden screws on the front, top and side panels and the iconic air vents design formed by the Catenary curve.
