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.

To order: select finish and spacing from above and add quantity to basket depending on the tier you require. Price is for a single shelf including feet. It is possible and encouraged to mix and match spacing (e.g. base, 30cm, 20cm to form a three-tier rack).
Galileo, the first audio rack created by Gold Note, is named after the scientist Galileo Galilei born in the mid 1500s and is made to honour the most illuminated physician, mathematician, astronomer and engineer of the 2nd millennium.   The Galileo rack’s design combines several details deriving from the best Gold Note turntables, like Bellagio Conquest and Mediterraneo, to offer both a great dampening effect and a beautiful unique Italian design.   Its unique shape reminds of various monuments designed by the great Renaissance maestro Michelangelo, like the monumental staircase in the Biblioteca Laurenziana (Library) as well as the Monumental Tombs of Lorenzo Dei Medici, also designed by Michelangelo. With its softly curved and rounded shelf angles, Galileo combines a fantastic and elegant look with a superb dampening effect due to its anti-seismic design.   Every shelf is made of two massive MDF or Italian walnut hardwood layers interfaced with a 3mm stainless steel layer, kept together by 16 stainless bolts creating a 45mm thick module of 20/25kg.   The Galileo shelf’s dimensions are 700mm W x 45mm H x 650mm D and it can hold up to 100kg of units per shelf, so that our rack can virtually handle any kind of audio gear that deserves the best audio quality performance. From an aesthetic viewpoint, it’s obviously a great match with our turntables and Hi-Fi electronics, repeating the materials and colours already used for our products.   Galileo is offered with solid finely machined aluminium hourglass feet and giant interfacing bronze inserts. The feet feature a great dampening effect due to the elliptical shape that distributes the longitudinal forces along the foot that is 10mm recessed into the wooden shelf and it is coupled with a 30x48mm bronze threaded insert for even better dampening results.


  • 45mm thick shelves with anti-seismic design in massive MDF or Italian walnut hardwood with internal 3mm stainless steel polished reinforcement

  • extra-solid finely machined aluminium adjustable feet
  • interfacing the hourglass foot to increase coupling effect energy absorption
