Gold Note Lite

Lite delight – It's Gold Note's PH-1000 Lite [€6.5K], a new phono stage. Despite the designation it still packs two RCA and 1 XLR input, can play stereo or mono LP and offers 36 selectable EQ curves. Gain goes from 31-74dB, loading from 10Ω-100kΩ, capacitance from 100-1'000pF. The output stage is class A and there's even a headphone output. Extension provisions can still bolt on the €3'790 external PSU-1000 power supply and the €4'480 Tube-1006 output stage for what the company call their Trio stack.
