    My comment on Luxman was not meant to imply that I expected Gryphon to cut prices when bringing their NA distribution in house - only that pricing could go either way with such a move depending on the company and their objectives. Luxman was trying...

    I'm not familiar with your speakers or the E-800 for that matter, but I did own the Accuphase A-36 for a year or so powering my Avantgarde horn speakers. At the time I was looking for a solid state amp to replace tube amps that I'd been using for...

    This is very different from Luxman in my opinion. Luxman is a much larger company with a more diverse product line from entry level to high end. Gryphon is small and uber-high end to begin with. Their starting stereo amplifier is $23k and speaker...

    These are both great power cords. It becomes a matter of personal preference. The Synergistic Research Atmosphere X Euphoria (level 3) is more open, more ďairyĒ, a bit more ďsparkleĒ. However, it sounds a bit thinner compared to Sigma v2 NR, which...

    I have never tried the Galileo SX power cord, but I had owned all three tiers of the SR Atmosphere X power cords, including the Level 3 Euphoria, which to me is a fairer comparison price wise to Shunyata Sigma v2. Galileo in price is similar to Omega
