    Gryphon Ethos CD player + DAC

    New Gryphon Ethos CD player / DAC. Rather unique design but no streaming.

    Estimated price of €24,800 before tax ...so, fortunately, in line with current trends, it’s modular and designed to be upgraded in the field.

    As much as I want to like the way gryphon looks, I just .... don’t. Sounds great though.

    I like the design, but the price for a premium plus player that can't play SACDs is a non-starter for me.

    The link says:

    The company tells us that “correctly implemented upsampling eliminates the need for conventional, steep-slope analogue filtering altogether.”


    It's advertised as being special, but this is standard practice. My Berkeley Alpha DAC 2 did that, and so does my Yggdrasil Analog 2 DAC.
