Up your date with Gold Note's IS-1000 – The Italian super integrated gets a firmware shot in the arm. Free of charge, the update provides the following features: 1/ volume now displays as a 0-100 graphic; 2/ the volume itself now always works in the analog domain even when digitally streaming Roon, Tidal, Qobuz, Deezer et al. Gold Note's analog volume overrides the digital volume inside their iPhone/iPad app. That's possible because the new attenuation protocol is bi-directional. Digitally made volume changes trigger the analog attenuator matrix to guarantee the best sound quality.
