Gold Note has recently released a new product from the 10 series, the PA 10 and we cannot wait to have a listen to it. A stereo power amplifier dedicated to the smaller but not less efficient product range of the series 10. The amplification unit was developed in collaboration with a local high-tech supplier and features selected components to offer a wide range of functions such as our unique adjustable damping factor technology that lets you match the amplifier to your loudspeakers perfectly. - Gold Note
SMALL BUT POWERFUL
The PA-10 is the new stereo Power Amplifier of the Gold Note series 10 featuring a lot of innovations which have always distinguished Gold Note’s designs. PA-10 has been developed to offer great power considering its small size. The product is designed as the perfect companion of the DS-10 4in1 DAC completing a conveniently sized High-End System without renouncing to the power and Gold Note sound quality. Top-level electronic components combined with outer connections RCA, XLR and gold plated speaker terminals complete the high-level build quality of the product. PA- 10 is built around a very solid steel chassis completed by massive panels of aluminum to avoid RFI and EMI. The aesthetic of the chassis is derived from the other series 10 products integrating the PA-10 seamlessly into a coherent concept that is inspired by the Italian design tradition.
The PA-10 is a fully balanced amplifier featuring a BTL design (Bridge-Tied-Load) which allows the unit to be easily bridged and work as a mono amplifier doubling its power rate from 75Watt per channel @ 8Ω to a considerable 600Watt @ 4Ω load. Using two PA-10 will increase the performance of your stereo system noticeably. The existing flexibility of the stereo power amplifier could even be largely extended with the mono application for all kind of speakers that require really high power and great energy.
SELECTABLE DAMPING FACTOR
Like the flagship model PA-1175 MKII, PA-10 features a unique adjustable Damping Factor design allowing for an ideal matching with any kind of loudspeakers: PA-10 can drive either large and difficult speakers or high sensitivity and mini-monitor speakers.
The proprietary GN LINK technology allows putting the PA-10 into Master-Slave-Mode with other sources like the DS-10 or a second PA-10. When connected via the GN Link cable, the unit will go in standby mode and will re-activate itself only when receiving a signal from the master unit. The GN Link-Function guarantees major user-friendliness since you will be switching ON/OFF the entire audio chain from one source only.
