Goldmund Telos 8800

Tower of power – It's the new Goldmund Telos 8800, a 1.4KW/8Ω amplifier singing in the key of class A/B with 35dB of voltage gain adjustable in 3dB increments ±9dB. Unloaded noise is below 3µV, dynamic range 117dB, weight a colossal 265kg/ea. and size 42 x 113 x 47cm WxHxD – so yes, over a meter tall and heavy as sin. The press release neatly sidesteps price so we assume that if we must ask, we can't afford it. Nothing wrong there when this clearly is a no-prisoners flagship effort. This Swiss catalogue has plenty of smaller amplifiers and active speakers which don't even need external amplification.
