Fully Balanced Class-A Line Preamplifier.
Designed for high demanding audio systems, P-1000 is the new complete High-End Audio Preamplifier for real music lovers, an innovative Class-A preamplifier born from a new proprietary Six Gain Stage project developed in our labs and with a Relays & Optical Encoder volume control. Completing the 1000 line of electronics, P-1000 is powered by a Triple Linear Transformer PSU and features ten independent analogue stereo inputs: five fully balanced XLR and five RC, optionally it can even feature a digital input. P-1000 belongs to a new era of electronics where performance is combined with technology to offer the best possible musical experience and to be easily controlled: with its colour display, P-1000 is as easy as it gets: all the settings can be selected from the main screen without annoying sub-menus for quick and precise fine adjustments, and the unit can be updated via computer through the USB port. The sophisticated volume control matched with the exclusive Six Single Gain stages and Gold Note Ultra-Balanced technology is crucial to achieving incredible low distortion and extended linear bandwidth for true superior musicality.
To perfectly reproduce old recordings, the preamplifier can be set to Mono/Stereo, it also allows the Left/Right channel swap to enable the reproduction of inverted recordings and can swap the absolute phase 0°/180°. The over-boost function has been developed to drive speakers that require robust power to achieve enough energy in the lower range of frequencies. As all Gold Note electronics, P-1000 can be enhanced with external dedicated units, like the tube output stages TUBE1006 or TUBE1012 and the power supply units PSU1100 or PSU1250 for ultimate performances. P-1000 stores in memory settings and volume levels for every single audio input to allow a better experience and quick adjustments. It also features a large number of functions, like Mono/Stereo, Left/Right channel swap, Absolute Phase Swap, Over-boost, fine Balance tuning.
