Goldmund Telos 2800

Goldmund writes: “Today marks a milestone in high-fidelity audio with the launch of the Telos 2800 Mono Amplifier (Suggested Retail Price: 115.000 CHF). Engineered for audiophiles and designed for distinction, this state-of-the-art amplifier redefines the standards of sound quality and precision.

The Telos 2800 delivers a maximum power output of 450 Wrms on 8 Ω with 1% THD, demonstrating its impressive audio prowess. Its distortion level nearly inexistent boasts less than 0.05% IMD (SMPTE) and THD+N, unloaded, from 20 Hz to 20 kHz at 30 Vrms output. The input noise floor is below 3 μV from 20 Hz to 20 kHz.
With a gain of 35 dB and a dynamic range of 110 dB within a 22 kHz measurement bandwidth, the Telos 2800 ensures clarity and depth in audio reproduction. A damping factor of 600 at 1 kHz / 8 Ω highlights the amplifier’s ability to control speaker drivers for precise audio output.

At the heart of the Telos 2800 lies a robust 3200 VA toroidal power transformer, now enhanced in size and power to deliver even more power in the same case. This enhancement is complemented by a colossal capacitor bank of 109,600 µF, which has been increased to improve the dynamic and reactivity of the amplifier. This bank includes custom Goldmund branded capacitors, further elevating the quality of
the amplifier. Additionally, the Telos 2800 introduces a significant improvement in heat dissipation. A new CNC machined heat sink covers the entire rear panel of the amplifier, allowing more surface area to dissipate the heat generated by the power supply. This new heat-sink design has been used on these amplifiers to
ensure optimal thermal management.

The rear panel is elegantly outfitted with an array of analogue and digital inputs, ensuring seamless compatibility with a diverse spectrum of audio sources.

Measuring 44 W x 32 H x 46 D cm and weighing 59 kg, the Telos 2800 boasts a robust build quality.
