TELOS 280 – Power Amplifier

 

The Goldmund Telos 280 is a stereo analog power amplifier producing 320W of pure power for the best musical enjoyment. Continuing the excellence and legacy of the Telos line, its design is inspired by its illustrious predecessor the Mimesis 28.

The Telos 280 can be considered as a luxury upgrade of the Mimesis 28 with more power, enhanced aluminum chassis providing excellent mechanical grounding and vastly improved driver control (the Goldmund “Acoustical Grounding”). The unit consists of incredibly precise joint positioning and the visual perfection required in all high-end components. Its aluminum casing with satin finish, reasonably sized enclosure and on-board technologies makes it a perfect blend of sober aesthetics, size and function. One of the secrets of its extraordinary sound quality is that we make it run quite hot at the output junction’s level (the (in)famous secret of Class A !). By slightly increasing the bias and doubling the heat sink cooling capability, we made this possible without risking temperature overload when the amplifier is pushed to its limits. The DC coupled Telos 280 amplifier is easy to use and safe. It features an automatic switching to muting if the AC line drops or is interrupted. A balanced input is provided in addition to the regular unbalanced RCA analog input. It offers performances that cater to the most demanding audiophiles, which for Goldmund means extreme precision, depth and clarity.
