Gold Note has the launched the PSU-10 EVO, an external power supply designed for the DS-10 and DS-10 PLUS streaming DACs, available worldwide at a suggested retail price of €1100 (approximately $1,240). The new power supply follows in the same footsteps as the PSU-10 (which is dedicated to the PH-10 phono stage) and has been inspired by the same principle – to allow the most demanding audiophiles to enhance the absolute performance of their systems.
The PSU-10 EVO features a four-transformer power supply stage enhanced with ultra-low-noise voltage regulators, with three transformers entirely dedicated to the power supply and one to 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 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. It is designed, made and assembled by hand at the Gold Note facility in Tuscany.
