“A TOUCH OF WARMTH” FOR YOUR ELECTRONICS
TUBE-1012 and TUBE-1006 are the best way to improve the Gold Note electronics even further to reach a whole new level of performance through the class A 12 or 6 valve output stages. Our sources and amplifications are capable of great control and definition, providing outstanding realism in recreating the musical event. But if you prefer the warm sound of the tubes and want to bring your system to its very top performance, the TUBE-1012 and TUBE-1006 are the way to go. Connect them to your Gold Note electronics and you’ll hear Solid-State and Tubes playing in perfect synergy to deliver the best High-End listening experience.
Our proprietary Totem-Pole Output Stage design, with six independent audio stages per single tube, guarantees ultra-wide bandwidth response and ultra-low distortion to deliver the purest audio signal ever.
Thanks to new audio inputs on the rear panel our valve output stages can be connected with up to two sources at the same time using the TUBE INPUT for the Gold Note sources and the LINE INPUT for other manufacturers. The input can be easily selected from the front panel for maximum convenience and ease of use.
