Gold Note of Italy has announced the release of the All-in-One DS-10 in its PLUS version.

The DS-10 PLUS is a significant upgrade to the original DS-10 CLASSIC, which we reviewed last year here. the versatile 4-in-1 unit features a new generation D/A converter, UPnP-DLNA Streamer, line preamplifier and headphone amplifier with a 3.5mm jack analogue input.

Digital & Analogue

Standing between the worlds of digital and analogue music, the DS-10 PLUS now offers “the best of bot”h, giving audiophiles the opportunity to fully use it as a multi-source pre amp. With the DS-10 PLUS it is now possible to connect the Gold Note PH-10 phono stage or any other analogue source using it as a pure pre amplifier.

DS-10 PLUS is a real multitool product designed to sit at the centre of any High-End audio system, enclosed in a convenient compact-sized box exuding the Italian sense of “bellezza”.
