TELOS 5500 NEXTGEN – Power Amplifier

 

Extreme, powerful and majestic, the New Telos 5500 NextGen is the heir to the Telos 5000+, an engineering prowess of the highest technical level. The major improvements brought to this unit represent such a significant step in audio amplification, that they will shape the next generation of high-end amplifiers, whether separate or built-in.

The new power supply in Telos 5500 NextGen is more powerful than its predecessor, the Telos 5000+. It is built with a 6400 VA transformer block, 360.000 uF reservoir capacitors, and 72 output transistors to provide extreme power reserves. It also includes gold plated brass conductors instead of PCB’s to achieve a direct, low impedance power transfer to the output stages. The Telos 5500 weighs more than 260kg per piece and is housed in an elegant tower measuring 94 x 47 x 39 cm. Two sides are used for the cooling heatsinks and the hard brass construction pushes the Goldmund Mechanical Grounding construction principle to a level never achieved before. Tests made on the Telos 5500 NextGen clearly show: – Excellent dynamic that makes the amplifier never, not even remotely, close to saturation. – Exceptional control on the drivers. – Unprecedentedly precise sound image with a spectacular soundstage that extends beyond the speakers, and this is without the Goldmund Leonardo time correction! The precision and openness are actually the most impressive of the three characteristics tested. The Telos 5500NextGen is the amplifier for connoisseurs who want the best of the best in audio reproduction.
