The Telos 2500 that received the Stereo Sound Grand Prix Award in 2006 had already been improved with the Telos 2500+ version, a mono amplifier of the highest power and performance, but you will be amazed to hear how the Telos 2500 NextGen still surpasses the previous models.
Its amplification board, the Goldmund 6209H used in the new Telos 5500 NextGen, gives it additional power thanks to its new 80 000 microfarad PSU power bank, allowing it to drive any speaker, even those with the lowest impedance. Its sound is both dynamic and transparent thanks to the full implementation of the Goldmund Thermal Grounding technology, recognizable by the large gold-plated copper buffer plate on its back panel radiator. This result is even more reinforced by the improvement of its Mechanical Grounding that now includes a fourth pod of evacuation and an additional complete gold-plated brass framing inside. Its internal construction is just spectacular and clearly explains the complete lack of coloration of the sound produced by the unit.
Its circuit time accuracy is unique, better than 100ps. It uses a high bandwidth circuit with minimal group delay distortion, taking great care of the cut-off distribution nodes so the group delay distortion is not measurable inside the audio bandwidth
A truly universal amplifier, the Telos 2500 NextGen offers many different connection possibilities (balanced and unbalanced) that make it ideal for any system configuration. It also comes with very convenient features such as: - An RS232 port that allows the connection with a Crestron or other home automation control systems, including the ultra simple Goldmund ipad/iphone Remote Control - The adjustment of power functions (On-Off-Standby) that can be controlled remotely - A gain adjustment that can be added for complex configurations. - A new front control panel with more technical capabilities in measuring the amplifier - Improved safety circuits that activate the protection mode for the amplifier and associated speakers in nanoseconds. Twelve separate high-power transformers, two separate low-power transformers and a separate power supply make the Telos 2500 NextGen one of the safest amplifiers on the market.
