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.

THE ALL-IN-ONE FOR AUDIOPHILES

Imagine a complete High-End stereo system enclosed in a beautiful aluminum chassis carved in bold Italian style: this is IS-1000.

With the knowledge and the experience developed in over 20 years of research, we are now able to offer an all-in-one solution powered by the most advanced technologies and components to achieve true audiophile quality sound.

IS-1000 is an advanced fully integrated amplifier that redefines the way music playback is experienced to achieve a new pinnacle in High-End audio, seamlessly merging a powerful Class A/B Integrated Amplifier, a Phono Preamp, a DAC and a Streamer in a unique, complete source.

The refined technical innovations of IS-1000 come directly from our flagship models, like the preamplifier P-1000 and the power amplifier PA-1175, which inspired us to create a new source that would integrate the analogue components of a high quality amplifier with the digital technologies of a Streamer and a DAC to deliver outstanding performances.

IS-1000 is a Roon Ready device, fully compatible with multi-room systems and with a quick plug&play installation: simply plug IS-1000 to the main A/C, connect it to your network (Wi-Fi or Ethernet) then to the speakers and start to explore the endless possibilities of music, streaming from Tidal & MQA via Tidal, QobuzSpotify & Spotify Connect and Deezer with Roon and our App [available for iOS and Android] or browsing your collection of digital music stored locally on NAS and USB sticks (DSD64 via DoP on USB and LAN, PCM up to 24/192 with exclusive possible option to interchange the DAC converter PCB).

You don’t need anything else to experience at home the pleasure of high definition audio, just IS-1000 and your speakers. If you love vinyl records, connect your turntable directly into IS-1000 to use the Phono Preamp we designed and engineered, it’s really that simple.

The new Class A/B amplifier with 125W@8Ω per channel guarantees the pure sound, vivid dynamics and the finest detail, offering a wide range of digital and analogue inputs to assure total control and freedom to upgrade, expand or connect more devices to IS-1000.

To offer the best versatility it also features 2 analogue outputs - 1 RCA variable and 1 RCA fixed - to connect your source to IS-1000 or to match it with your active speakers and even with power amplifiers.

The IS-1000 is a radical, innovative solution dedicated to audio enthusiasts looking for a real high quality All-In-One source.

"Connectivity is comprehensive and I can see many having the IS-1000 as the hub of their entertainment system and having it not only for playing tunes saved on NAS/HDD or from streaming services, but also for putting the television through." - Stuart Smith

“One of the most important and overarching aspects of the IS-1000’s performance is that it feels like a single cohesive unit rather than a collection of elements partnered together in a nice-looking box. This isn’t a traditional integrated amplifier, but one that reflects the requirements of audio enthusiasts in 2018, and if you are looking for an amp with a built-in network music streaming source, it makes a great deal of sense.“ - Ed Sulley
