It's time to enjoy your music: with DS-1000 it's simple, just as simple as playing from a USB key or connecting to the web to browse digital radio stations.

To play music files at its best and always with top quality high resolution in 24bit 192kHz, DS-1000 is equipped with a D/A converter and one S/PDif coaxial and one TOS optical digital inputs powered by AKM receiver, and also a USB port powered by the world class XMOS U6 500MHz DSD for high speed peripherals.


A large 3,5” TFT monitor displays all unit information in a clear menu that's easy to browse, showing all USB inputs, digital inputs and radio stations

Thanks to the exclusive SKC - Single Knob Control the unit becomes a friendly plug-and-play source fully controllable even without a remote or the computer and mobile App.


INSIDE: DS-1000 offers a unique modular design exclusively modelled for Gold Note's 1000 series to expand and grow your system into a complete all-in-one high-end audio source with an optional internal preamp stage and also an analogue balanced stereo input

OUTSIDE: Modularity is also extended to external accessories, perfect to push the performance even further, up to outstanding levels with:

two unique optional external Class-A tube output stages
TUBE-1006 | TUBE-1012

two different external super Inductive Power Supplies
PSU-1250 | PSU-1100

The output stage matches the best digital sources available on the market today with a fully balanced, solid state Dual-Mono PCM1792A.

For a no-compromises experience, DS-1000 optionally gets two exclusive balanced Class A tube output stage units:

TUBE-1012 - featuring 12 double triode tubes, is a special unit employing 6 transformers, inductive and tube power supply, ultra-low distortion, noise-less and low impedance output

TUBE-1006 - a simplified 6 tubes unit, able to significantly improve performances.

The unit's voltage will always be extremely stable on every audio signal paths due to two proprietary Dual-Mono transformers PSU, achieving high-quality audio performances and annulling digital interferences

To step up the configuration we designed two external super power supplies:

PSU-1250 - 250 Watt inductive unit in a massive multi-transformer working as a virtual battery

PSU-1100 - 100 Watt inductive unit able to maximize DS-1000's power and providing a full galvanic insulation from the AC system and a perfect unit shielding from RFI and EMI troubles


DS-1000 comes with a standard digital volume control and can be connected directly into a power amplifier with no need of any preamplifier

But enthusiasts will appreciate the optional high quality preamp stage also equipping the Deminoff flagship line of amplifiers, a PGA single resistor for dual-mono volume control.

A stereo balanced analogue input is also available as an optional to allow DS-1000 to be an integrated control unit and drive a power amplifier directly.
