THE HIGH-QUALITY OF GOLD NOTE’S PHONO STAGES HAS BECOME AFFORDABLE
The PH-5 is the latest born at Gold Note’s range of phono stages, designed to deliver the same high quality and excellent performance that made the PH-10 and PH-1000 famous, with an affordable price and all the cutting-edge features that stands out our products. With a single RCA input, it can be connected to either MM or MC cartridges and offers an EQ curves selection (RIAA, Decca London and American Columbia, with Enhanced option), as well as the LOAD’s and GAIN’s adjustments to guarantee the utmost flexibility and versatility, making it perfect for every kind of analogue system.
ANALOGUE HEART, DIGITAL INTERFACE
The PH-5 is the first Gold Note product designed with a touchscreen interface: all the settings are easily accessible and changeable thanks to the innovative and unparalleled user-friendly display that allows you to select and manage all the options in real time while playing your music. The phono stage is based on a completely new design to integrate the whole electronics into a single board.
The digital interface is combined with a full analogue heart: indeed, the signal path is made through discrete audio-grade components and sealed single switches and it’s optimized to shorten the distance and minimize possible interference. Every setting selected through the touchscreen is applied to the audio signal switching its path through the usage of relé. The PH-5 features an “analogue purity” able to deliver superior audio quality and extract even the finest details from the vinyl record.
TO EACH RECORD ITS OWN EQ CURVE
The PH-5 allows a selection of the most appropriate equalization curve for each vinyl record, directly on the touch display: RIAA, DECCA LONDON, and AMERICAN COLUMBIA. Thanks to our proprietary technology inspired by Georg Neumann (the producer of the famous Neumann Disc Cutting Lathe ), each curve can be “Enhanced” to extend the frequency response up to 50kHz, improving even further the stage, dynamics, and resolution when required.
DEDICATED EXTERNAL POWER SUPPLY
To maximize the performance of the PH-5 we also developed the dedicated, external super inductive power supply that allows the phono stage to achieve its fullest potential, reaching an even higher degree of musical realism, better dynamics, and greater three-dimensionality sound.
