Gold Note IS-1000 super integrated amplifier, gold
Imagine a complete High-End stereo system enclosed in a beautiful aluminium chassis carved in bold Italian style: this is the 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.
The 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. It seamlessly merges a powerful Class A/B Integrated Amplifier, a MM/MC Phono Preamplifier, a High-End DAC and a high-resolution Streamer in one single unique source.
The refined technical innovations of the IS-1000 derive directly from our flagship models which inspired us to create a new source that would integrate the analogue components of a Class A/B amplifier with the digital technologies of a Streamer and a DAC to deliver outstanding audio quality.
The IS-1000 is a Roon Ready device, fully compatible with multi- room systems. With a quick plug&play installation you simply plug the IS-1000 to the main AC, connect it to your network (Wi-Fi or Ethernet) then to the speakers and you are ready to start exploring the endless possibilities of music. You can stream through Roon, Airplay, Tidal, MQA , Qobuz, Spotify 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 drives and enjoy your favorite vinyls of course.
The new Class A/B amplifier with 125Watt per channel @ 8Ω 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.
