Delivery on a wrapped pallet was in three boxes, one for the plinths. The speakers emerged in black stockings for protection. Users will want to keep these around as they make for great dust shields when not in use. Whilst affixing the heavily contoured plinth, I recommend plugging the port with a rolled-up dish towel or sock to prevent inadvertently dropping the hex key or bolts inside.

The exposed silk-dome tweeter came covered with a magnetically attached protector.

The super-imposed inside shot of the precursor model gives a rough idea on what the A-6 Evo will look like internally.

Once out in the open, the roaming eye will delight in flawless gloss veneers and faceted sidewalls which recall Kaiser's trademark diagonals. Gold Note's Italian cabinet supplier was clearly at the very top of this global game. The upper diagonal from the front of the top metal band toward shy of the cabinet's upper rear corner is faintly visible.

In the final photo, the head-on look at the front shows the differing wall thickness of the cheeks whilst the side view gives a ghost impression of the lower diagonal which begins at the front of the lower metal band and ends short of the cabinet's lower rear corner.

Gold Note's smallest tower speaker revealed itself to be a very elegantly proportioned, fastidiously detailed creation of top-class fit 'n' finish. As an audiophile household, I left the magnetically affixed grills in the shipping cartons bound for the locked horse barn where all our empty boxes live. The supplied spikes and floor protectors might go on once the speakers were in their first place and needed leveling. That meant carrying them upstairs to play our smaller room as their intended natural habitat before making a guest appearance in this bigger downstairs space.
