All those who want to further refine a Gold Note DS-10 classic or Gold Note DS-10 Plus now have a suitable solution for this task, namely the new Gold Note PSU-10 EVO High Performing Power Supply, specially designed to combine an outstanding D/A converter, streamer, preamplifier and headphone amplifier.
With the so-called Gold Note Series 10, the Italian high-end hi-fi forge Gold Note has an extremely exciting product line on offer. These solutions are characterised above all by the fact that they represent the finest hi-fi systems with the genes of the “greats” from Gold Note in a particularly compact form. In this way, Gold Note does justice to a trend that has been increasingly in focus over the past few years, namely to enable high-end hi-fi in the most elegant, even discreet form possible. For many music enthusiasts and hi-fi lovers the times of massive castles of equipment are over, people prefer much more “dainty” systems, which nevertheless can offer the usual high quality level and combine many tasks in one system.
An essential component of the Gold Note 10 Series is therefore the Gold Note DS-10, a system which, due to its small dimensions, performs astonishingly well, since it is an immensely flexible streaming client, a D/A converter, a preamplifier and a headphone amplifier. Gold Note now offers these solutions in two “flavors”: the original Gold Note DS-10, which could be called Gold Note DS-10 classic, and the new Gold Note DS-10 PLUS, which has been expanded to include analog inputs and is therefore open to other analog sources.
When one speaks of high-end hi-fi, this usually includes the option of making the existing system even better by means of optional expansions. The Italian high-end hi-fi forge Gold Note also considers this to be the case for almost all of its solutions in the most diverse areas. In most cases, a particularly sophisticated power supply is available, which can raise the potential of the most diverse solutions to a significantly higher quality level. This is also the intention for the compact Gold Note Series 10, and we now offer an optional power supply in the form of the new Gold Note PSU-10 EVO for the Gold Note DS-10 classic and the Gold Note DS-10 PLUS.
Gold Note describes the new power supply unit Gold Note PSU-10 EVO as a High Performing Power Supply and promises to increase the sonic performance of the Gold Note DS-10 classic and Gold Note DS-10 PLUS significantly.
At the heart of the power supply are so-called Dual Inductive Filters, with the help of which the developers want to guarantee the basis for a particularly clean power supply and thus ultimately a particularly clear audio signal from the preamplifier. Disturbances and interference from the power grid are to be eliminated by the proprietary Gold Note Dual Choke Technology.
The Gold Note PSU-10 EVO features a so-called Multi Cascade design with four transformers inside, three of which are used for the power supply itself, the fourth for the inductive filters of the power supply.
Of course, the new Gold Note PSU-10 EVO has the same design as the Gold Note Series 10, measuring no more than 200 x 80 x 260 mm, and features a solid aluminium housing with cut-outs milled into the sides and top plate, which are primarily used for cooling but also serve as an elegant design element. The front is adorned only with the manufacturer’s emblem and a status LED, and that’s all it needs. At the rear there is the classic power connection, a master switch, as well as the so-called PSU Out for powering a Gold Note DS-10 including ground connection.
Of course the new power supply is also available in the same versions as the other Gold Note Series 10 models. So you can choose between black, gold and silver.
The new Gold Note PSU-10 EVO is now available in specialist shops. The recommended retail price is stated as € 1.100,-.
Getting to the point
When one speaks of high-end hi-fi, this usually includes the option of making the existing system even better by means of optional expansions, and the Italian high-end hi-fi manufacturer Gold Note also holds this opinion for almost all its solutions in the most diverse areas. In most cases, a particularly sophisticated power supply is available, which can raise the potential of the most diverse solutions to a significantly higher quality level. This is also the intention for the compact Gold Note Series 10, and we now offer an optional power supply in the form of the new Gold Note PSU-10 EVO for the Gold Note DS-10 classic and the Gold Note DS-10 PLUS.
