What Gold Note say

The Super Integrated Amplifier

With the knowledge and the experience developed in over 20 years of research, Gold Note are 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 merges a powerful class AB Integrated Amplifier, a MM/MC Phono Preamplifier, a High-End DAC, and a high-resolution Streamer in one single unique source. The class AB amplifier with 125W @ 8Ω per channel 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.

Easy Access to Your Music

The IS-1000 is a device with a plug&play installation, fully compatible with multi-room systems.
You can stream through Roon, Airplay, Tidal, MQA, Qobuz, Spotify, vTuner, 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 drive and enjoy your favorite music tracks. If you love vinyl records, connect your turntable directly into the IS-1000 to use the integrated Phono Preamp.

Roon Ready

Roon Ready network devices have Roon’s streaming technology built in, and are certified by Roon Labs to provide the highest level of quality and performance in network streaming.

Tidal Connect

With Tidal Connect you can stream music to your IS-1000 directly from the Tidal app (both with iOS and Android).

Booster

The Booster is a feature designed to reproduce the lower range of frequencies with power and control. It works as a custom equalisation, increasing the gain around 50Hz to provide a richer and more full-bodied sound. The 50Hz frequency has been chosen since lower frequencies are more difficult to obtain with small speakers.

The Booster provides a richer and more full-bodied sound, for better realism and dynamic. It’s particularly useful in case of speakers that require more energy in the bass frequencies, for night-time listening at lower volumes, or even to achieve a more realistic headroom. The Booster is completely by-passed when set to OFF, applied to 50% when set to 1, applied to 100% when set to 2.
