Telos 5000

Telos 5000 - Power Amplifier

The 20 pairs of the limited series have been delivered to our customers.

Delivering 5000 Watts rms with the lowest distortion figure ever measured, the Goldmund Telos 5000+ is the best and most spectacular Power Amplifier ever made by Goldmund. It can drive any loudspeaker with true ease, providing an incredibly powerful yet ultimately refined sound.

Many of the innovations in the Telos 5000+ are unique and have never been used in an audio amplifier before. The Alize 7 (D/A converter) built into the Telos 5000+ improves over any pre-existing designs. Its ability to recreate 3D space by lowering the noise level to levels barely measurable is astonishing.

The Telos 5000+ new circuitry includes a revolutionary full protection circuit for the amplifier itself and its associated speaker. This is a necessary precaution for the power capability and the incredible speed of the new amplifier that can deliver more than 200amps in a few nanoseconds. It is to be used with a digital preamplifier. Its power supply comprises 16 separate transformers and ultra fast rectifiers but also ultra low impedance filtering capacitors.

The result is a cancellation of spurious noise generated through the AC power line by other equipment. The hard brass structure is pushing the Goldmund Mechanical Grounding construction principle to a level never achieved before. The effect is a tremendous decrease of the resonance produced by the power amplifier but it also incidentally gives the Telos 5000+ a very majestic look.

Limited to just 20 pairs, the Telos 5000 and Telos 5000+ have rapidly become valuable collectibles among privileged audiophile collectors and music lovers.
