Gold Note PA-10 Stereo Power Amplifier
Available in Black, Gold or Silver
PA-10 is Gold Note’s newest stereo power amplifier dedicated to the Series 10 product line
Built around a steel chassis plus panels of aluminium to, “…avoid RFI and EMI,” the PA-10 features a BTL design (Bridge-Tied-Load).
The Gold Note PA-10 has been designed to partner the Italian audio company's DS-104-in-1 DAC and boasts the “Gold Note sound quality” in a compact 220 mm x 80 mm x 260 mm (WxHxD), 4 Kg package.
The PA-10 is a fully balanced amplifier featuring a BTL design (Bridge-Tied-Load) which means you can use it as a mono amplifier which, in turn, doubles its power rating from 75 Watt per channel at 8 ohms to a potent 600 Watt @ 4 ohms.
The PA-10 has a quoted frequency range of 10 Hz - 30 kHz +/- 1 dB and, just like the flagship model PA-1175 MKII, has an adjustable Damping Factor feature that enables perfect matching with any loudspeakers.
It can drive either large and difficult speakers or high sensitivity and mini-monitor speakers,”
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 Gold Note PA-10 is equipped with a stereo XLR input, and a stereo RCA input which, looking at the spec sheet, can be used at the same time should you wish.
Additionally, thanks to the proprietary GN LINK technology, you can put the PA-10 into a Master-Slave-Mode with other sources, such as the DS-10. Essentially, this means that when you switch one unit on or off, all the others follow suit.
