The Telos 690 may offer connectivity, but Goldmund's new integrated is just as focused on power and precision.

The Telos 690 integrated amplifier from Swiss luxury audio creators Goldmund boasts a 350 VA dual toroidal transformer and a massive 46,000 µF smoothing capacity, which, says the company, results in improved dynamics, response, and clarity (THD+N, unloaded: < 0.08 % from 20 Hz to 20 kHz at 30 Vrms output).

This should also mean that the Telos 690 has sufficient power to easily drive any speaker, even in a large listening room, thanks to a quoted output of 2 x 250 Wrms at 8Ω and 2 x 320 Wrms at 4Ω.

Of course, the Telos 690 does, in fact, offer a range of digital connectivity options, including a USB Audio Class 2.0 interface supporting Hi-Res audio up to 32-bit/384 kHz. There is also an optical and a coaxial digital connection. Five RCA stereo line inputs are available for analogue sources.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Telos 690's casing is typically Goldmund. Expect precision mechanics, while the improved panel structure is said to strengthen the amplifier's chassis, improve mechanical grounding, and dampen the propagation of physical vibrations.

The Goldmund Telos 690 is priced at around US$36,250. Australian & New Zealand pricing and availability has not yet been confirmed.

    applause awards

    Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.

    The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

    We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
