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.

We believe that every hand made turntable has something special and what we make carries a small part of the Italian heritage, showing our dedication to native traditions, history and to our passion: this is how we craft perfect music sources.

Such passion defines all our turntables and drives us to design with great care and attention every single detail in order to deliver the best audio performance from the most fascinating source of music.

Giglio is one of our best creations and - with Mediterraneo - redefines the traditional design of a turntable through innovative shapes, quality materials and technical solutions to merge tradition and technology.

The particular curves of the base result in extra rigidity and allow Giglio to achieve a superior performance delivering pure sound and details to recreate the musical event. The wooden base is also coupled with a 20mm thick board in polished Acrylic and reinforced with a 3mm stainless steel platform lowering the total frequency resonance.

Enhancing the turntable's ultra-compact structure, combining and refining the technical design with elegant, smooth lines: that's how we created Giglio.

The Walnut curved plinth is in fact coupled with a 3mm stainless steel board then completed with a 20mm thick black polished acrylic board that integrates the electronic system.

The new polished pulley with its hourglass design allows the belt to spin smoothly reducing even more the Wow&Flutter and the rumble.

Even the platter is designed to minimise vibrations with noiseless functionality and low platter/plinth distance for greater stability.

The Power Supply of the 12 Volt Swiss Made synchronous motor has been developed to guarantee fantastic audio performances.
Thanks to our proprietary power control generator based on a Quadral-Core micro-controller, Giglio can effectively control vibrations and deliver high torque for the greatest dynamic and resolution.
The Power Supply Unit electronically control the 33rpm and the 45rpm mode and the speed fine adjustment, storing the settings in memory.

Giglio features a  33mm thick platter made of Sustarin and a high precision bearing/spindle design with ultra-strict matching tolerances.
The spindle is made of rectified hardened chromed Steel and the bearing is in tungsten steel, both engineered to obtain great rotational stability and low noise.
The platter in black Sustarin - a special material based on POM plastic polymer, rigid and high dampened - reduces vibrations and improves the stability.

TRIPLE DAMPENED PLINTHS

Giglio is built with a multiple plinth structure based on the main 50mm wooden base made of Italian Walnut hardwood slats.
The base is coupled with a 20mm plinth in polished Acrylic and reinforced with a 3mm thick stainless steel platform to guarantee exceptional stability and rigidity. 

QUADRAL-CORE POWER SUPPLY

Giglio features a proprietary best power control generator based on Quadral-Core micro controller enhances an audio converter completely reshape the AC wave to perfectly drive a 12V synchronous motor to virtually cancel vibrations and improve torque power for greatest dynamic and details resolution both.

HIGH PRECISION PLATTER

Giglio features a  33mm thick platter made of Sustarin and a high precision bearing/spindle design with ultra-strict matching tolerances.
The spindle is made of rectified hardened chromed Steel and the 5mm bearing is in tungsten steel, both engineered to obtain great rotational stability and low noise.
