Gold Note P-1000 MKII Preamplifier $11,500
Designed for High-End audio systems, the P-1000 MkII is an innovative Class-A line preamplifier powered by a new proprietary Six Gain Stage Ultra-Balanced design featuring relays and optical ALPS Encoder volume control. The best audio-grade components provide incredibly low distortion and extended linear bandwidth for true superior musicality.
The P-1000 MkII belongs to a new era of electronics. Top performance is combined with top technology offering the best possible musical experience, tradition and innovation to meet each other to create such a unique preamplifier.
Featuring a three independent linear transformer power supply and 8 stereo inputs: 4 fully balanced XLR and 4 RCA. The P-1000 MkII offers a large number of functions: Mono/Stereo selection, Left/ Right channel swap, Absolute Phase swap, Booster technology, fine Balance tuning and quadruple analogue outputs (two pairs of unbalanced stereo RCA and two pairs of balanced XLR).
To perfectly reproduce even old recordings, the preamplifier can be set into Mono as well as Stereo mode. It also allows swapping the Left & Right channels to enable the reproduction of inverted recordings in addition to the absolute phase swap from 0° to 180°.
The P-1000 MkII Booster technology enhances the unit to get the best out of speakers that require power supplies. It provides greater energy in a very specific range of low frequencies. The Booster is completely bypassed when set to OFF.
The P-1000 MkII is easy to control with its large colour display showing all functions. All the settings can be found on the screen allowing quick and precise fine adjustments, whether using the Single-Knob-Control rotary joggle conveniently placed on the front panel or the elegant IR remote control.
To enhance the performance of the P-1000 MkII even further, it can be optionally matched with the external super inductive power supply PSU-1250/1000 and the valve output stage TUBE-1012/1006.
