TELOS 590 NEXTGEN II
Stereo Power Amplifier with Integrated Preamplifier

For decades, Goldmund’s amplification technology has been acclaimed by music lovers worldwide.Over time, the various models in the Telos line have been meticulously refined. Year after year, circuit after circuit, the characteristics that give Goldmund units more transparency, energy, linearity, openness and stability, have been successfully maintained and improved. As with the other Telos amplifiers, the 590 NextGen II integrated also benefits from the latest developments of the NextGen circuit technology.

 

With 215 Wrms per channel (on 8 Ω / 1 % THD), this model provides outstanding dynamics and exerts a strong control on the speaker drive units producing an exceptionally tight and detailed sound.

 

The Telos 590 NextGen II benefits from considerably improved thermal dissipation of the ultra-linear transistors used for the amplification. This is achieved thanks to the combination of two heat-sinks andan aluminum conductive strut that cancels the need for a dissipation fan. The result is a particularly quiet stereo amplifier with a constant optimal temperature, even at increasing sonic levels. Two toroidal transformers give it the extreme speed demanded by the Goldmund Telos technology standards. A high performance D to A circuit improves its dynamics and resolution, making it both clear and spatial.

 

The ideal blend of technology along with our engineers’ passion for excellence makes the Telos 590 Next- Gen II an impressive amplifier that guarantees a unique sonic experience.
