We report on chirped-pulse amplification of an ultrafast thulium-doped fiber laser. Pulses with an energy of 3.3 nJ and a bandwidth-limited pulse duration of 195 fs could be amplified to 151 nJ , which corresponds to an average power of 5.7 W at 37.6 MHz pulse repetition rate. The maximum output power was limited by the available pump power. The pulses could be dechirped to a duration of 258 fs .
