Founded in Firenze in 2012 by Maurizio Aterini, who is currently the CEO and driving force behind the brand, Gold Note is the leading Italian manufacturer in the High-End audio industry. Our products are a statement of Italian craftsmanship sold in more than 40 countries worldwide.

We are based in the countryside surrounding Firenze, where every product is designed with locally sourced high-quality materials. Today, we are one of the few brands worldwide to offer a complete line of digital and analogue equipment and let audiophiles enjoy a full Gold Note system for the best experience with our signature sound.


Our story is one of tradition and innovation, a seemingly contradictory concept that drives our brand. We are lucky enough to come from a place full of history, architecture and art, which is also a leading country in technology and engineering – an endless source of inspiration. Above all, we value creativity, technical know-how and sense of beauty, and we like to think that it shows with every product we have ever created.

And it’s the story of Maurizio, an audiophile journey that began from vinyl. His passion for music turned into an obsession for the art of audio reproduction, especially vinyl, which led him to build a collection of thousands of records by the age of twenty.
