Telos Headphone Amplifier 2
After the success of the Telos Headphone Amplifier and it's 6 Moons Award, Goldmund has yet improved this model. It still can drive any headphone - even the least sensitive ones - and adapt to any impedance; It still brings exceptional dynamics; It still provides a unique linearity and perfect channel balance; And it now comes with a new feature that will ravish headphone aficionados: The Binaural encoding.
This encoding is made thanks to algorithms that transform standard recordings into binaural. Any normal track can benefit from this feature thanks to a simple switch on the front panel of the amplifier. For recordings that are already in binaural, the switch should simply be on the STD position. In addition to a clear sense of depth, this feature greatly improves the natural balance between the instruments and provides a completely clear picture of the layout of the orchestra or band.
With extreme performance, DSD over PCM capabilities, new binaural features, and customization possibilities, the THA2 will undoubtedly remain THE reference in terms of headphone amplification for a very long time.
