Product Details

PH-1000 is a premium phono stage which offers exclusive and unique features including a large variety of Equalization Curves, Loads, Capacitance and Gain ultra-fine adjustments, designed to complete top quality turntable audio systems achieving the pinnacle of audio performance. Being very easy to use, PH-1000 is an innovative phono stage where all possible options are selectable from the remote control and from the front panel SKC proprietary rotary knob. All functions can be adjusted while the music is playing to allow precisely setting-up any record listened to. PH-1000 features 3 independent inputs one of which XLR balanced, 24 Equalization Curves, 6 Gain level set-ups, 12 pre-selected Loads to match the cartridge impedance, 6 Capacitance options dedicated to MM cartridges as well as Stereo/Mono and Swapping Channels options completing the most advanced phono stage operational on the market. PH-1000 is a fully analogue unit designed to preserve the audio signal purity the best. Its “Discrete Components Design” also guarantees absolute superiority over digital solutions. All selectable options are managed via High-End audio-grade analogue sealed single switches to shorten the audio signal path taking the best sound out of any vinyl. PH-1000 is controlled via the front knob and remote handset while all functions are displayed on a 3.5” front panel colour monitor powered by a custom Gold Note firmware loaded in a micro SD Card which can be easily updated via PC when necessary. The micro-controller is separated and independent from the audio signal path to avoid any interferences to the audio signal. As per other Gold Note sources from the 1000 series PH-1000 features a modular design and allows matching a special external Power Supply and Tube output stages enhancing the audio performance to the pinnacle of the High-End audio world. Front Panel and Case: Brushed anodized aluminum available in three colors: Black | Silver | Gold
