Gold Note IS-1000

THE ALL-IN-ONE FOR AUDIOPHILES

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

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, seamlessly merging a powerful Class A/B Integrated Amplifier, a Phono Preamp, a DAC and a Streamer in a unique, complete source.

The refined technical innovations of IS-1000 come directly from our flagship models, like the preamplifier P-1000 and the power amplifier PA-1175, which inspired us to create a new source that would integrate the analogue components of a high quality amplifier with the digital technologies of a Streamer and a DAC to deliver outstanding performances.

MUSIC WITHOUT LIMITS
IS-1000 is a Roon Ready device, fully compatible with multi-room systems and with a quick plug&play installation: simply plug IS-1000 to the main A/C, connect it to your network (Wi-Fi or Ethernet) then to the speakers and start to explore the endless possibilities of music, streaming from Tidal & MQA via Tidal, Qobuz, Spotify & Spotify Connect and Deezer with Roon and our App [available for iOS and Android] or browsing your collection of digital music stored locally on NAS and USB sticks DSD64 [.dsf] files converted to high-resolution PCM over UPnP protocol on USB and LAN, PCM up to 24/192 with exclusive possible option to interchange the DAC converter PCB.

HIGH-END PERFORMANCE
You don’t need anything else to experience at home the pleasure of high definition audio, just IS-1000 and your speakers. If you love vinyl records, connect your turntable directly into IS-1000 to use the Phono Preamp we designed and engineered, it’s really that simple.

The new Class A/B amplifier with 125W@8Ω per channel guarantees the pure sound, vivid dynamics and the finest detail, offering a wide range of digital and analogue inputs to assure total control and freedom to upgrade, expand or connect more devices to IS-1000.

The IS-1000 is a radical, innovative solution dedicated to audio enthusiasts looking for a real high quality All-In-One source.

To offer the best versatility it also features 2 analogue outputs - 1 RCA variable and 1 RCA fixed - to connect your source, such as turntables or CD-players, to IS-1000 or to match it with your active speakers and even with power amplifiers.

Thanks to the exclusive technologies implemented, IS-1000 features an Adjustable Damping Factor allowing the connection of any speaker - small monitors or high efficiency speakers - always ensuring the best audio performance.
