Gold Note: PH-10 RIAA

En RIAA av den unike sorten på vei til oss nå

MM og MC RIAA - med enorme muligheter

Welcome to the new era of High-End Audio

“Gold Note PH-10 won me over with both features and sound. Anyone getting into the vinyl reproduction, thinking of returning or coming with the mileage should closely consider this stand out analog box. ” 

— Matej Isak ( Mono & Stereo )

Designed to allow precise adjustments to let you enjoy the best out of your system

with two separate RCA inputs to connect independently two different tonearms and cartridges.

Once the tonearms are connected, PH-10 can be adjusted 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 by 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, easy way.

introducing a new, amazing feature

select between 6 equalization curves and experience outstanding performances

You will finally be able 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 and powerful results.

AUDIOPHILE and versatile

built in aluminium and designed to elegantly cool down the sophisticated internal electronics

PH-10 shows every detail on its 2,8” colour display powered by Gold Note proprietary SKC - Single Knob Control technology – an intuitive control system developed to easily browse and select all the unit's functions.

The unit can be externally powered by a dedicated inductive Dual-Mono PSU to enhance even more the performance.

“PH-10 is the first generation of the new era of electronics launched by Gold Note.
Everything is super easy to handle with via user friendly interface, without any annoying sub menu diving” 

— Matej Isak ( Mono & Stereo )

“PH-10 is not only packed with features, expandable and future upgradable. It sounds great, involving, with potent dynamics, a sense of three dimensionality and of so called balanced transparency, that is not even scenting towards the brittle realms. This is a mighty, emotionally engaging musical box, that even without all the expandable accessories brings more then expected. A thrill and a fill!” 

— Matej Isak ( Mono & Stereo )


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

9 LOAD options

Perfect matching is easy and quick to achieve with 9 different load options 10Ω, 22Ω, 47Ω, 100Ω, 220Ω, 470Ω, 1000Ω, 22KΩ, 47KΩ


Select the record modulation between the internationally recognized RIAA, DECCA-LONDON or AMERICAN-CBS-COLUMBIA curves, and then “enhance” it with our cutting-edge proprietary technology to achieve the best vinyl
