Telos Grounding Noise Reducer is here !

Dear Friends,

Telos Grouding Noise Reducer has finally arrived. This product was being introduced by Jeff, himself in June. The respond was overwhelming and being pre-order by cusomters.

Some introduction:

In an audio setup, the effectiveness of the grounding facility has an immediate impact on the background noise. This translates to poor sound quality and greatly worsens the listening experience.

It is almost impossible to get satisfactory grounding facility, let alone one that meets the requirements for audio use. Most of the time, they only adhere to the minimum safety requirements. The common ones have the Neutral wire and the Ground wire connected together, or there is no Ground on the receptacles, leaving the Ground wire unconnected. This allows noise from the home appliances to pollute the Neutral wire, hence, causing interference. Electrical appliances like inverter air conditioner and those with switching power supplies, like computer, generate the highest level of interference.

When the electrical reference point is polluted with noise, it could get into the signal path and you could hear it as noise. The noise could potentially enter the digital circuit and cause bit error.

Thus, TELOS brings new meaning to grounding implementation. And this has been proven to be the most elegant way for any audio setup.

TELOS technical team analyzes audio equipment from a unique perspective. Every audio equipment uses power transformer in order to operate at the correct internal voltage. Hence, each equipment is said to have the primary side and secondary side. The primary side is from the power receptacle, all the way to the input of the transformer. The secondary side is from the output of the transformer to the circuit board. The audio circuitry remains within the secondary side.

We proposes the use of CPU in the GNR to calculate and generate high precision Ground reference voltage. Grounding is achieved by connecting the audio equipment to the binding posts of TELOS GNR that carry the Ground reference voltage. By doing so, GNR is able to truly correct the Ground reference point for the equipment chassis, audio circuitry and the Ground connection.

Using the same analogy as a high precision digital clock, GNR generates low distortion Ground reference voltage, giving each equipment a consistent reference point. When the audio setup is operating on a singular Ground potential, the signal transmission becomes least impeded, avoiding any transmission loss due to polarity mismatch and bit error. Therefore, truly achieving the best transmission possible.

TELOS GNR Active Grounding Box comes with Ground cables of the same materials. Thus each equipment is having the same grounding impedance characteristics, this greatly reduces the likelihood of coloration. By having an isolated Ground for your audio setup, the effect is as good as having a dedicated power line. Through the GNR generated Ground potential serving only your audio setup, noise will be totally isolated.

We strongly urge you to come for a demo, let us show you how to further elevate your musical enjoyment.

Acoustic Energy Refence Series and AE-1 Classic

Dear Friends,

Acoustic Energy Reference Series 1 & 3 has arrived at Audio Basic, and not to forget the legend AE-1 Classic which has improved further from it's original design. This speaker is 100% Made in England and their craftsmanship is awesome.

Acoustic Energy Limited was founded in 1987 and originally based in West London before relocating to its current 15,000 square foot facility in the Cotswolds. In 1988 the AE1 was launched and originally designed to satisfy the needs of the professional audio sector of the market, offering great accuracy, precise stereo imaging, dynamics, and transparency coupled with high power handling and linearity. Due to these product benefits, the AE1 acquired a global reputation with musicians, recording artists and studio engineers.

Subsequently the AE1 won the British Hi-Fi Award for Best Speaker in 1991 and 1992, and acclaim for the Reference Series within the hi-fi press grew world-wide. The hi-fi market rapidly became an integral part of Acoustic Energy's growth.

AE philosophy is simple "To create innovative audio design solutions which employ the latest technology wisely, thoroughly and elegantly."

Latest Telos Audio Grounding Noise Reducer and Jeff will be here on 13/6.

Dear Friends,

Mr Jeff, designer and director from Telos Audio Design will be at Audio Basic this coming Saturday (13/6) 1pm onwards.

He will showcase us the first complete unit of Grounding Noise Reducer. This product's internal CPU will actively monitor and adjust the grounding potential difference of your equipments being connected to it. They have already showcase the prototype of Grounding Noise Reducer in both CES 2015 and Munich HighEnd in Germany and was received a lot awareness from the industry.

We are have product introduction and demonstration. Please make yourself available on this Saturday to hear by yourself how this Grounding Noise Reducer could improve the system sounding.

Telos Audio's Quantum Noise Resonator and just launched Mini-Q already has been used by many customers and received many positive feedbacks. We believe this Grounding Noise Reducer will be another hot selling products.

Telos Audio Mini Quantum Resonator has arrived !

Dear Friends,

Latest products from Telos Audio, MINI Quantum Resonator has arrived.

This latest sound tuning device from Telos Audio Design, incorporating the 6 core technologies of Telos Audio Design

When you use Mini Q, you will experience our unprecedented technologies :

1) Mini Q was born based on the trickled down technical know-how from our higher range product, QNR. The components were rearranged and optimized to produce an active phase compensation circuit that fits into a 5 cm by 2.5 cm board. From the in-house engineers' testing to our early beta testers' evaluation, we were able to conclude that the effectiveness of Mini Q is close to 70% of QNR.

2) All the components of Mini Q, the top cover, fuse, male plug and all were run-in using our 0-100 KHz ultra wide bandwidth QBT run-in technologies. The ultra wide frequency sweep was aimed at maximizing the full potential of the components.

3) Based on the "material resonance feedback" concept, we developed our best selling product, the protective cap, using precious metals of gold and platinum. The Mini Q's top cover was created by enlarging our second-generation RCA cap's design scale. The top cover was plated with Palladium, a precious metal that has been acknowledged to have sweet timbre quality, refinement and smooth tonal texture. The QBT run-in top cover was then connected to the ground pin to influence the "sounding" of the ground point in the audio system.

4) Kanon DTDK-n50ex Digital Torque Driver was used to assemble the Mini Q. The servo-controlled high-precision screwdriver was able to apply closely matched torque force onto all screw-in points. Thus eliminating unnecessary structural stress that could compromise sound quality.

5) The circuit board also went through 36 hours of -196 degree Celsius cryogenic treatment. This aims to reduce welding stress on the components by harmonizing the molecular distribution of the solder. Hence, allowing smoother operation of the SMD circuit.

6) Telos Q, a proprietary insulating rubber made of far infrared material, was used throughout as circuit insulation. Other than ensuring safe insulation, the circuit board is continuously exposed to 280 cpm of far infrared emission that optimizes the work efficiency of the electronic components.
