THA3 Nextgen

THA 3 NEXTGEN

Headphone Amplifier

Accumulated Goldmund’s technology excellence and design effort, the new Goldmund Telos Headphone Amplifier 3 NextGen (THA3 NextGen) is aiming to elevate the originally reference level headphone amplifier to a new level.

The THA3 NextGen maintains all the signature traits, including adjustable gain for driving all kinds of headphone cross sensitivities, adapting to any impedance, with great dynamics.

One crucial factor that made THA3 NextGen with supreme performance is that the internal circuitry was derived directly from the renowned Goldmund Telos amplifier circuitry. The headphone users can thus experience the transparency, energy, linearity, and openness from Goldmund’s legendary Telos line of amplifiers.
