    Give Gryphon credit for the clever packaging to facilitate installation. Otherwise I don’t think you could fit a forklift into that room.

    Please share what you hear, once broken in, when you move the bias between L, M, and H. And how does it differ with speakers of different efficiency?

    For those familair with Gryphon Antileon and Mephisto, the Apex sounds even more like a Mephisto - even more dynamic, more resolution etc. Not a romantic sounding amp by any means.

    A friend of mine had one at home with the new preamp.

    Elberoth,

    Wasn’t clear to me from your post if you listened to the Apex. Respect your opinion and I think you previously posted that you would love to have the AE (my amp). I haven’t heard the Mephisto and the Apex is way, way out of my reach (am still saving to upgrade my Magico S3s to the Kharmas). Would love to hear more of your (or your friend’s) thoughts on the Apex.
