Gold Note
MAURIZIO ATERINI - FOUNDER - From a very young age the passion for music and its instruments of reproduction have marked my life so much to condition every choice I made. I desired to be able to offer the greater audience ideas and technical potentials with an all-Italian brand specialized in Hi-Fi created by a team with years of experience in the field. In 2012, with my wife Elena, my partner Alessio and a team of specialized technicians and engineers I founded GOLD NOTE, profiting from previous work experiences in the same industry. Together we created a High-End audio brand which since the start wanted to speak a simple but evocative language in order to bring the best of “Made in Italy” to the whole world. In my opinion, one of the greatest peculiarities of this brand is its “double glance”, our business vision which in some ways directed to the past, but at the same time to the future. On the outside, this approach is expressed by forms we give to our creations which prove a strong references to the artistic history of Tuscany though representing our point of view on the future of quality listening. The same thing is true on the inside of our products which are designed based on the cornerstone elements of the audiofile tradition but introducing new features and using components of information technology unknown to these kind of products until recently. The spirit of our audio equipment stems from the fusion of past and future. This means that we don’t see a contradiction in combining avant-garde technological innovations with a design that seeks ties with tradition. The Renaissance of our city Florence is a role model to be inspired by every day, a period of great technological innovation and new ideas, and this is the tradition we are interested in - it is our mission to reread it with deference and respect to obtain a direct connection with that innovative spirit of six centuries ago. Today Gold Note presents a line of unique, perfectly coherent and elegant products that allow you to set up an entire quality stereo system with turntables, electronics and loudspeakers. A philosophy that has allowed us to represent Italy, the most beautiful country in the world, as I have always dreamed of doing.

PA-10 is the new power amplifier of the Gold Note Series 10 that can play either in stereo or in mono (bridged) mode. Characterized by great built quality and an impressive variety of functions, PA-10 is an incredibly versatile power amplifier suitable for any modern High-End system. The aesthetic of the chassis is derived from the other Series 10 products integrating the PA-10 seamlessly into a coherent concept that is inspired by the world-famous Italian style and Gold Note modular design.

The amplifier is composed of a high-quality chassis based of heavy aluminum panels and selected audio components. The idea behind the PA-10 was to design a compact size power amplifier (less than half-width compared to standard Hifi electronics) that would nonetheless be capable of astounding power to drive any kind of loudspeakers. The new great proprietary technology developed for the PA-10 allows the amplifier to act like a Class A amplifier doubling its power while lowering the speaker impedance and thus featuring 75Watt in stereo @ 8 Ω, 150Watt @ 4Ω and 300Watt @ 2Ω, and amazing 300Watt @ 8Ω, 600Watt @ 4Ω in mono mode.

PA-10 distinguishes itself also because of its great versatility applying a lot of the innovations Gold Note has become known for: starting from the adjustable Damping Factor lets you perfectly pairing different kinds of speakers from the most difficult to drive models to high sensitivity and mini monitor providing always the best energy matching.

The Bridge-Tied-Load technology (mono mode) allows PA-10 being a super high power amplifier to virtually drive any speaker of the market, while the XLR stereo output enables the PA-10 to be configured in series for convenient high quality multi room solutions helped by the automatic stand-by mode based on the audio signal received.

The PA-10 comes with both RCA and XLR Inputs. It optionally offers the possibility to be simultaneously connected to two different sources like the Gold Note PH-1000 phono stage with volume control and the DS-10 4-in-1 DAC.

More user friendliness is given with the in-house In/Out GN Link technology which allows putting the amplifier in master-slave-mode with other units with the same feature.

BRIDGE-TIED-LOAD

The PA-10 is a fully balanced amplifier featuring a BTL design (Bridge-Tied-Load) which allows the unit to be easily bridged and work as a mono amplifier doubling its power rate from 75Watt per channel @ 8Ω to a considerable 600Watt @ 4Ω load. Using two PA-10 will increase the performance of your stereo system noticeably. The existing flexibility of the stereo power amplifier could even be largely extended with the mono application for all kind of speakers that require really high power and great energy.

SELECTABLE DAMPING FACTOR

Like the flagship model PA-1175 MKII, PA-10 features a unique adjustable Damping Factor design allowing for an ideal matching with any kind of loudspeakers: PA-10 can drive either large and difficult speakers or high sensitivity and mini-monitor speakers.

GN LINK

The proprietary GN LINK technology allows putting the PA-10 into Master-Slave-Mode with other sources like the DS-10 or a second PA-10. When connected via the GN Link cable, the unit will go in standby mode and will re-activate itself only when receiving a signal from the master unit. The GN Link-Function guarantees major user-friendliness since you will be switching ON/OFF the entire audio chain from one source only.
