Winner of the 6moons.com 2017 Blue Moon Award, the Telos 590 NextGen is a newly designed integrated amplifier benefitting from the latest development of the NextGen amplification technology. With more than 280W per channel (on 8 Ohms), this model provides outstanding dynamics and exerts a strong control on the drivers for an exceptionally neat and detailed sound.
It comes with 8 inputs: 5 analog, one digital, one optical and one USB. Using the same amplification circuit as the other NextGen units, it is much more powerful and much bigger than its predecessor, the Telos 390.5. It also benefits from a considerably improved mechanical grounding construction and two heat-radiating side fins that secure a constant optimal temperature. These, added to the beveled front panel inspired from the Telos 2500, make it look very impressive.
Two toroidal transformers give it the extreme speed imposed by the Goldmund Telos technology quality standards. A new D/A circuitry improving its dynamics and resolution makes it both clear and spatial.
The Telos 590 NextGen is a convenient and reasonably priced option to create a truly high-end audiophile system without the hassle of separate amplifiers. With numerous electronic and mechanical improvements over previous model, it will be really hard for any other integrated amplifier to beat its price performance ratio.
