From the Gold Note Press Release
Firenze, Italy: Gold Note is pleased to announce the launch of the PSU-10 EVO, the new external power supply designed for the DS-10 and DS-10 PLUS streaming DACs, available worldwide at authorised Gold Note dealers at a suggested retail price of 1100€ (approximately $1240).
Part of the awarded Series 10, the power supply follows in the same innovative footsteps of the PSU-10 (which is dedicated to the acclaimed phono stage PH-10) and has been inspired by the same principle - to allow the most demanding audiophiles to enhance the absolute performance of their DS-10 and DS-10 PLUS even further.
The PSU-10 EVO is available in Black, Silver and Gold, and uses massive panels of finely machined aluminium as a shield to avoid RFI and EMI. The chassis shows the iconic air vent design and the same size and finishes of the rest of the Series 10, that is 200mm W x 80mm H x 260mm D, for a weight of 4kg.
The PSU-10 EVO follows that unique and coherent design concept that belongs to all Gold Note products, designed, made and assembled by hand at the Gold Note facility in Tuscany using locally sourced materials.
Moving to the specs, the PSU-10 EVO features a 4-transformer power supply stage enhanced with ultra-low-noise voltage regulators. The power supply stage takes advantage of a 4-transformer layout with 3 transformers entirely dedicated to the power supply and 1 for the inductive filter. The Dual Choke Hybrid design features an inductive filter on the analogue stage and is powered by a double inductor, driving both the negative and positive stages.
The technology developed for the PSU-10 EVO filters the current to eliminate interference and electrical noise from the AC power system achieving the ideal insulation from electrical noise and providing ultra-clean power.
Powered by the PSU-10 EVO, the DS-10 delivers even greater dynamics, higher resolution and refined details resulting in improved stunning realism and musicality.
: the PSU-10 EVO is compatible exclusively with the Gold Note DS-10 and DS-10 PLUS while the PSU-10 is dedicated to the PH-10 Phono Stage.
