Gold Note PA-1175 MKII

Gold Note
High-Performance Power Amplifier for Audiophiles

Introducing the PA-1175 MkII, a Class AB power amplifier meticulously engineered to satisfy the most discerning audiophiles. Its selectable damping factor ensures seamless compatibility with a wide array of loudspeakers. Our proprietary optical BIAS technology delivers high power with minimal distortion by precisely controlling the reference voltage, offering superior stability compared to traditional systems. This optical signal analysis operates independently from the audio path, guaranteeing unparalleled performance and safeguarding your loudspeakers.

The PA-1175 MkII features BTL (Bridge-Tied-Load) technology, enabling the stereo amplifier to be bridged into a mono power amp, boosting its power output from 200W@8Ω per channel to an impressive 520W@8Ω per channel. This capability allows it to effortlessly drive the most demanding loudspeakers on the market.

Designed to minimize all forms of RFI and EMI interference, the PA-1175 MkII boasts thick aluminum panels showcasing the distinctive Gold Note design. Its power transformer is a specially crafted toroidal design with a spiral core, ensuring stability, eliminating mechanical vibrations, and providing exceptional performance and isolation. A secondary transformer handles auxiliary functions to preserve the purity of the audio signal.

One of the standout features of the PA-1175 MkII is its front-panel selectable damping factor. This allows you to optimize the amplifier's performance for any loudspeaker type. Setting the damping factor to 250DF unleashes the full potential of large, low-sensitivity loudspeakers, while the 25DF setting is ideal for high-efficiency speakers or small monitors that require lower current output.

Experience the ultimate in audio performance with the PA-1175 MkII, the power amplifier designed to meet and exceed the expectations of the most demanding audiophiles.
