THE AUDIOPHILE ALL-IN-ONE AMPLIFIER

Imagine a complete High-End stereo system enclosed in a beautiful aluminium chassis carved in bold Italian style: this is the IS-1000.

With the knowledge and the experience developed in over 20 years of research, we are now able to offer an all-in-one solution powered by the most advanced technologies and components to achieve true audiophile quality sound.

The IS-1000 is an advanced, fully integrated amplifier that redefines the way music playback is experienced to achieve a new pinnacle in High-End audio. It seamlessly merges a powerful Class A/B Integrated Amplifier, a MM/MC Phono Preamplifier, a High-End DAC and a high-resolution Streamer in one single unique source.

The refined technical innovations of the IS-1000 derive directly from our flagship models which inspired us to create a new source that would integrate the analogue components of a Class A/B amplifier with the digital technologies of a Streamer and a DAC to deliver outstanding audio quality.

The IS-1000 is a Roon Ready device, fully compatible with multi- room systems. With a quick plug&play installation you simply plug the IS-1000 to the main AC, connect it to your network (Wi-Fi or Ethernet) then to the speakers and you are ready to start exploring the endless possibilities of music. You can stream through Roon, Airplay, Tidal, MQA , Qobuz, Spotify and Deezer, controlling the IS-1000 with our easy to use GN Control App on your smartphone or tablet (available for iOS and Android for free), browse your collection of digital music stored locally on a NAS or USB flash drives and enjoy your favorite vinyls of course.

The new Class A/B amplifier with 125Watt per channel @ 8Ω guarantees pure sound, vivid dynamics and the finest detail. It also offers a wide range of digital and analogue inputs to assure total control and freedom to upgrade, expand or connect more devices to the IS-1000. You don’t need anything else to experience the real pleasure of high-definition audio at home, nothing more than the IS-1000 and your speakers. It’s really that simple.

Product Reviews

IS-1000 IS A HOT TICKET ON THE ABSOLUTE SOUND

Gold Note is kicking off its relationship with the good old TAS magazine with a great first review on the Gold Note IS-1000 Do-it-all Amplifier as they called it. Happily, Neil Gader really understood what this unit is all about and only had good things to say about it. We strongly invite you to pass on the good news to your clients!
