“Truly, the Gold Note PH-10 Phono Stage is a stunning bargain, and the partnering Gold Note Mediterraneo turntable is an absolute delight.
Right from the start, I liked the look of the Gold Note turntable. The exceptionally stylish Walnut plinth, hefty black platter, and relatively compact size make it an eye-catching addition to any decor. Dave Clark’s article discusses how easily he had the turntable up and running in about an hour. In turn, I appreciate the Mediterraneo’s ability to change speeds at a push of button, as well as its easily accessible and smooth-action cueing lever.
Speaking of unvarying performance, I am also inordinately pleased to report that the Mediterraneo runs at the correct speed. I’m sensitive to the acceleration and drag of turntables when I hear it, so the Mediterraneo’s speed stability is most welcome.
I’m fully confident that anyone hearing the Gold Note PH-10 phono stage and Mediterraneo turntable will agree that both deliver sweet, sterling sound and exceptional value. Decidedly worthy of my highest recommendation and Writor’s Choice Award!”
