Goldmund Telos 300 power amplifier

From the Goldmund press release:

Goldmund has released its latest Stereo Power Amplifier, a new product that can trace its lineage all the way back to the classic and compact Mimesis 3 amp from 1985. The new model brings together all of Goldmund’s latest evolutionary advances to its proprietary Telos amplification technology in a compact and stylish package.

Delivering 225 watts of Class AB power per channel, the stereo amplifier follows in the Goldmund tradition of delivering its output over an extremely high 3Mhz bandwidth, to ensure the audio signal exhibits no unnatural group delays and phase irregularities within the audible frequency spectrum.

Improvements have been made to the power supply and further refinements of the amplifier circuits have resulted in greater low frequency control, lower harmonic distortion in the high frequencies and improved linearity.

Ideally partnered with either the Goldmund Mimesis 27.8 or Mimesis 37S NextGen preamplifiers, the Telos 300 is sure to be a popular model in the brands traditional markets such as the US, France, Japan, Netherlands and the UK.
