IS-1000 Australian Hi-Fi Review

"Despite its limitless capabilities, the IS-1000 is not only super-easy to operate, it's a real joy to use. It's also a joy to listen to. Its sounds clean and powerful when playing any music, no matter from where it's sourced: hard-wired to the rear panel, via a local network or streamed from the internet."

Gold Note's $11,999 PH-1000 is by a considerable margin the most sophisticated, most configurable phono preamplifier that any audio manufacturer has ever produced, at least that I know of. Remarkably, considering all that flexibility and sophistication, using and adjusting the PH-1000 is straightforward.

If you have been holding off on buying a phono stage to see if something incredible comes onto the market, you’ve hit the jackpot, because Gold Note’s new PH-1000 is everything you’ve been waiting for and more. It is a truly incredible phono stage. I can still barely believe such an achievement was possible.

Overall, the measured performance of the Gold Note CD-1000 was excellent, either as CD player or a DAC.
