    Gryphon 300 - one month later

    I have several hundred hours on my Gryphon Diablo 300. I've been using the Aurender N10 with it. The Gryphon Diablo 300 is absolutely superb. Phenomenal. Incredible. You really feel like you're listening to big ass monoblock amps and a preamp. Incredible authority and control. It has this chocolatey rich gorgeous seductive sound.

    I LOVE THE SOUND!!!! ❤️

    My 300 drives Magico S3 Mk IIs from a Proceed CDP/Oppo UDP-205. I play mostly large scale classical music and jazz. The 300 replaced a Mark Levinson 331. My impressions are similar to yours. Tremendous control and dynamic ease. On the musical side of neutral (but not lacking resolution), which appeals to me for the type of music I play. Better defined sound stage. Unique design is a 'like' for me. Difficult to comment much further now, because I'm experimenting with speaker placement, cables, and front ends.

    I’d love to have a second system with the Gryphon Diablo 300 for an integrated amp and Magnepan 20.7 or 30.7 for speakers. Two dream systems!

    Ken, according to Gryphon, up to 15 watts in Class A.

    Mike, wait till you hear the Mephisto... but, with the Diablo 300, you don't really want for anything more. Huge dimensional sound, detailed without being analytical.

    Btw, how is the Blade 2 sounding now that you have had more hours on it?
