      The Telos 380s are built exclusively for the South Korean market.

        It’s all speculation. Every room brings different pluses and minuses. You gain something, you give up something. Smaller and mid-sized rooms bring an intimacy and staging while larger rooms bring a different perspective.

        This combo is the best sounding system I’ve assembled in this room.

          The reason I asked was I've recently relocated my system back to the large room (temporarily moved for remodeling and so on) and despite completely different rooms, the preferred speaker geometry (distance between, distance to listening position) is the same. The image coalesces best at what I consider a nearly nearfield distance, given the largish multi-driver towers. I've found this a little surprising. I tried a pair of mid-sized two ways in the same location and the best imaging is very close to the same distance.

        Thanks! Looking forward to your initial observations soon!

          They look great - bit on the light side, mind you, at 53 lbs. (my monos weigh 102 each and would quickly toast a cat, as they don't have outer shells like yours do to distance the kitties from the heat sinks). Although cats are sensible enough not to do anything uncomfortable anyway.

          How does the sound compare to the old set up?

              Any updates on the sound of these Goldmund 440 as they should have "settled" by now? Will there be a review in the PF soon? Thanks!
