Gold Note DS-10 EVO

Gold Note
The New Frontiers of Digital Music

The DS-10 EVO is a versatile and innovative streaming DAC, featuring a state-of-the-art D/A converter, line preamplifier, and headphone amplifier. It offers numerous connectivity options, including high-definition Bluetooth and a professional headphone output. The DS-10 EVO supports high-resolution files such as MQA and DSD (up to DSD512), providing an unparalleled digital music listening experience. Its technology is housed in a compact aluminum chassis, making it 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. You can also 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). Additionally, you can stream directly from the Tidal application thanks to the implementation of Tidal Connect. The DS-10 EVO is Roon Ready and compatible with all UPnP/DLNA and Airplay 2.0 services. It can connect to the network using Wi-Fi or an Ethernet port and, at the same time, to a power amplifier or active speakers, allowing you to explore the limitless possibilities of high-resolution music.

The DS-10 EVO offers a unique function that sets it apart from other DACs, providing exceptional flexibility: you can modify the DAC profile to suit the music being played without degrading the audio signal and while maintaining the highest quality. This is done by adjusting the de-emphasis parameters, low-pass digital filters, and DSD filter. These parameters can be adjusted in real-time during playback, quickly and intuitively, thanks to the dedicated menu and the TFT display.

The 2.8″ TFT display allows you to easily view all available functions and manage them via the SKC (Single Knob Control) knob on the front panel, the Gold Note remote control, or the dedicated GN Control App. The GN Control app displays information about the track being played, such as format and resolution, on a smartphone or tablet. The user experience is highly intuitive, thanks to a cutting-edge interface and the ability to perform 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.
