The new frontiers of digital music

The DS-10 EVO is a versatile and innovative streaming DAC, equipped with a state-of-the-art D/A converter, a line preamplifier and a headphone amplifier. In addition to its numerous connectivity options, it also features high-definition Bluetooth and a professional headphone output. The DS-10 EVO supports high-resolution files, such as MQA and DSD (up to DSD512), to provide an unparalleled digital music listening experience. The DS-10 EVO’s technology is housed in a compact aluminium chassis, making this unit the perfect addition to any modern High-End audio system.

With the DS-10 EVO, you can stream music via Roon, Airplay, Tidal, MQA, Qobuz, Spotify, vTuner and Deezer, access a collection of digital music stored locally on a NAS or USB flash drive, or from a smartphone or tablet, via the GN Control app (available for free on iOS and Android) and directly from the Tidal application thanks to the implementation of Tidal Connect. Furthermore, the DS-10 EVO is Roon Ready and compatible with all UPnP/DLNA and Airplay 2.0 services. It can be connected to the network using Wi-Fi or Ethernet port and, at the same time, to a power amplifier or active speakers to explore the limitless possibilities of high-resolution music.

The DS-10 EVO features a unique function that sets it apart from any other DAC, making it extremely flexible: it is possible to modify the DAC profile to adapt it to the music being played, without degrading the audio signal and maintaining the highest quality, by acting on the de-emphasis parameters, on the low-pass digital filters and the DSD filter. These parameters can be adjusted in real-time during playback, quickly and intuitively thanks to the dedicated menu and the TFT display.

On the 2.8″ TFT display, it is possible to quickly view all the available functions and manage them via the SKC (Single Knob Control) knob located on the front panel, the Gold Note remote control or the dedicated GN Control App.
GN Control shows on a smartphone or tablet all the information regarding the track being played, such as the format and resolution, while the user experience is super intuitive thanks to a cutting-edge interface and the possibility of performing firmware updates directly from the internet.
Roon Ready devices have integrated Roon streaming technology and are certified by Roon Labs to provide the highest level of quality and performance in high-resolution streaming.

The story of Gold Note is one of dedication and talent. And, like all business success stories, it is a plural experience: the paths of a vast community of people intertwine in the magnificent headquarters nestled in the Florentine hills. Every day, these people put their skills and abilities at the service of the same goal, the Italian sound.

But in the beginning was Maurizio Aterini. It’s the end of the Seventies of the last century; Maurizio is only eight years old: one night his father comes home with a stereo system that will change his entire life. From that moment, his passion for audio reproduction systems is ignited. At the beginning it is little more than an interest he shares with many of his peers, something that fascinates and intrigues him; but as time goes on, this pull grows and in the Eighties Maurizio, now a young man, starts studying engineering at the university.

1992 is a pivotal year: Maurizio decides to challenge himself and he founds a technical design studio for third parties. Those are the years when he designs a specific tonearm that, up to these days, is still mounted on the Gold Note turntables with very few changes: the B-5, a model with an accurate distribution of the weights along its longitudinal axis, which guarantees a perfectly balanced configuration.

Commission after commission, the company achieves a good reputation among the international community, eventually asserting itself as an important boutique of sound engineering. The industrial model proves to be able to offer to the market creativity, engineering and production startup, thus guaranteeing the utmost flexibility at the service of the companies’ needs. The growth of the working group runs parallel to the company development: in the early 2000s, technicians and designers are joined by other figures, like Elena Basciano, Maurizio’s wife, who joins the company as head of human resources, putting to good use the experience she gained as head of many large international corporations. In 2007 Alessio Oronti becomes an associate and enters the executive ranks of the company.

In the meantime, a new type of interlocutors looms on the horizon: no longer just constructors with very specific catalogue requirements, but also distributors without well-established brands, looking for a new one. It’s at this moment that Maurizio, Elena and Alessio realize that it is time to leave the third-party industry. In 2012 Gold Note is founded. It’s the beginning of a new story: many of those who used to be their clients are now competitors; but the market looks promising: from the very start Family sound and design are recognised as the distinctive traits of the brand. Today, more than ten years after that moment, the company controls all the major markets, and it has a well-established reputation both among the experts and the audio enthusiasts as a guarantee of audio excellence. In such a competitive and crowded space as the world of audiophilia, Gold Note is a synonym of reliability, sonic quality, constant research for innovation and respect for the tradition of the Italian sound.
