The Goldnote PH-10 Phono stage
The Phono Stage of the next generation - the first phono stage with 2 inputs and 6 eq curves
The PH-10 is an ultra-versatile phono preamplifier that offers unique features, including EQ CURVES,
LOAD and GAIN adjustments: a fully analogue design engineered exclusively with high quality coils,
capacitors and resistors.
The PH-10 is controlled via a single knob and display using a sophisticated micro-controller to select the
functions through our custom firmware that is loaded on a micro SD dedicated flash memory which can be
updated easily via PC if required. The micro-controller is separated and independent from the audio signal
path to guarantee always a crystal clear and pure sound.
Once the tonearms are connected (you can connect 2 tonearms), the PH-10 can be set with 4 different
GAIN levels (-3dB, 0dB, +3dB, 6dB) to match precisely the output level of any MM or MC cartridge.
The perfect setup is guaranteed with 9 different LOAD options (10Ω, 22Ω, 47Ω, 100Ω, 220Ω, 470Ω, 1000Ω,
22KΩ, 47KΩ) that will let you adjust the preamp to match it with a large number of cartridges in a quick,
These options are set using the single control knob, there are no internal or external DIP switches to set!
The secret behind the PH-10’s great performance is that Goldnote design, craft and assemble every single
part! Every PH-10 is handmade in Italy with the best audio grade components to ensure flawless music
playback. The level of quality meets the highest standard throughout the entire production, from CNC
machining to assembly and finally to the electronic tests at the PC.
The 6 selectable eq curves allow you to switch from the internationally recognized RIAA curve, to the
DECCA-LONDON or the AMERICAN-CBS-COLUMBIA curve, always graphically shown on the front
display. And there’s more, because you will also be able to “enhance” each curve with a modern Gold Note
proprietary design for superior dynamic results.
There is an upgrade Power Supply (PSU-10) so the unit can be externally powered by a dedicated
inductive Dual-Mono PSU to enhance the already superb performance.
2 SEPARATE INPUTS: With two separate RCA inputs you can connect two different tonearms and adjust
settings independently for each single cartridge
4 GAIN options: PH-10 offers 4 different selectable GAIN levels -3dB, 0dB, +3dB, +6dB to precisely match
any kind of output level for MM and MC cartridges

100Ω, 220Ω, 470Ω, 1000Ω, 22KΩ, 47KΩ
6 EQ CURVES: To achieve the best vinyl experience select the correct EQ curve: RIAA, DECCA-LONDON
DISPLAY & KNOB: SKC is a unique technology that combined with a TFT display allows quick control of
the functions through the single knob joggle
