    Mike will probably be the only one unless Larry took them both home to try before he got his 300. Call Mike and talk to him as it might matter which speakers are involved.

    Very nice. I think I’d go with the Luxman in this case. (My preference) They look fairly easy to drive and I normally enjoy a slightly warmer sound.

    interesting , both have home theatre bypass , gryphon products seem to arouse huge love and reverence . my money would be on the gryphon , and when you have more money you can move to the 300

    So I bit the bullet and ordered the Diablo 300. Will receive in about a week. Time will tell if this ends the merry go round insanity
