    Heard this amp at the LA audio show last year - truly ginormous in person!

    Probably the best Ive ever heard Magico sound.

    The Mephisto is like this giant sledgehammer thatís also like a Ferrari F1 car.

    The Antilleon Evo has endless reserves and is smoooth. More laid back a bit. But has the slam and huge sound. Itís still breaking in. I will listen serious next week.

    The Essence is special, special, special. It has a sweetness and encapsulating musicality. I love it.

    Hi Mike.
    I just listened to the video you uploaded to YouTube of the Antileon Evo. He's next to Essence. It would be very interesting to hear the same song changing the amps.

    Re: Gryphon Antileon Evo Arrives

    Mike, sorry to push you. Am dying to know your views on this most wonderful amp. IMHO it is so warm and musical that it has actually biased my music towards Jazz, Classical, Afrobeat, Soul, Blues etc, and slightly away from rock and electro. It does rock and electro well, but it has helped me discover other genres.

    The amp is incredible and coasts along regardless of what speakers we try it with. However, this amp changes like no other depending on the power cables and speaker cables and ICís you use, but especially the power cables. The AQ Firebird and Dragon lit this baby up like putting rocket fuel in the engine. We are still experimenting with ICís and speaker cables.

    Iím not sure how much more I can add. Itís currently running with two Dragon power cords and sounds incredible. It has dynamics when needed. It has a big big sense of ease and depth to it. It has a more relaxed sound than the Mephisto, but more dynamic than the Colosseum. It truly is the best of both worlds. I truly believe it needs the Pandora Preamp to reach itís full potential.

    Well, if it were possible, that YouTube comparison with Essence and a great orchestral mass, it would be fabulous.
