    Re: Gryphon Mojo S Review

    Alex, Mike, anyone - is it worth replacing the 4 cylindrical feet on Mojo stands with Gryphon spikes? My floor is wood. Just wonder whether any further isolation benefit is available.

    Re: Gryphon Mojo S Review

    Thank you, Ian, for your kind words!
    About the speaker cable. VIP is a very good option! But Gryphon cables need to be heated for a long time.
    Be careful with the purchase of the Pantheon! They have a great sound but ... a lot of bass! Very bass! I have them in the demo room. (130 sqm). And sometimes I want them to have less bass)

So now I decide between Pan Theon and Mojo S. But I think I have to be sensible in my 12' wide room.. My usual question - what's the speaker cable?! I'm about to order VIP..

    You would have to experiment. We didnít use anything extra.

    Re: Gryphon Mojo S Review

    These things can be put if you need to make the bass more assembled, elastic, clear. I don’t think it should be done for Mojo! And for sure the Pantheon!
    For example, I do not have this)

    Re: Gryphon Mojo S Review

    Thanks Alex. This was what I observed originally. Iíve ordered Mojo anyway. I just thought I might ask the dealer to bring Pantheon to demo with an eye to a future change.
    Iíll try Argento Flow before I order VIP

    Re: Gryphon Mojo S Review

    Thanks Both. Stillpoints had a great effect on my Dynaudio towers. I thought I might make triangular oak platforms with Stillpoint feet for Mojo but itís a lottery as to the result and I definitely wouldnít be happy if I lost any Ďwarmthí.

    I made a discovery. Essential to unplug Diablo from wall when changing xlrís. Not enough to turn off with remote control. If I donít do this sound becomes very harsh and compressed. Took me a while to figure out what was going on.. Perhaps the same with all Gryphon amps?

    Re: Gryphon Mojo S Review

    Thatís a great space you have there Alex. If you sometimes find too much bass with Pantheon there then for sure I have no chance! They do look stunning in piano black.

    Alex/Mike - I'm missing the big soundstage of my previous floor standers. The Mojo is very good, especially as the volume goes up, but would a pair of subs give me a bigger soundstage as well as more extended bass, especially at lesser volume levels? Pity Gryphon don't make a 3-way smaller than Pantheon! Thanks.

    Yes, I think the subs would help. Something fast ideally.

    Thanks, Mike. I was thinking REL S510. I prefer the smaller size of Dynaudio Sub 3 but worry that, like my Dyn floorstanders, they may be too slow in my context. Do they need to be in phase- ie same distance from me as Mojo or, if they come in below, say, 60hz will it make no difference? I know nothing of sub culture so your knowledge is welcome and appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi Ian!
    If you use a subwoofer, then of course it will improve your bass situation.
    But personally, my opinion.
    Subwoofer and Mojo will not be easy to work correctly in tandem.
    Since Mojo has a 4th order filter.
    We have already done such an experiment.
    And the bass then was either late or ahead of the speakers. True, we did not do this for long.

    Hey Alex! Thanks a lot for the thought. I wondered about timing and phase, too. I saw a picture on the FB Gryphon page of a dealer demo of MojoS and sub's, which got me thinking. I'll think about. Still waiting for the Flow cable so I won't do anything until I've tried it. I don't necessarily need the lower bass; mostly I just want to open up the stage and mid range a bit.. Saw your latest great video

    So the Argento Flow speaker cable is in. Only has about 6hrs on it but initial impression is sound with a little more body and soundstage and a slightly rolled off top end. Very 'musical' and less irritating of my ears at the top end than the Guideline I picked up. I'll put another 24hrs on it before a critical listen tomorrow. Decision has to be made Friday. Right now, I miss the higher resolution of Guideline but appreciate the increase in stage and the slightly 'more relaxed' listen.

    The Flow was very good. Much more open and less 'thick' sounding than Serenity. After another 24hrs on it, the top end seemed just about spot on. It increased size of soundstage as I'd hoped and produced a very refined, smooth sound that was effortless to listen to. But it snatched just a tiny bit too much pace/energy from the music. The additional 'body' it brought to the sound was a double-edged sword. So I'm going to go for Gryphon VIP and hope it does everything without compromise. If not, I'll go back to Flow and probably be happy into my dotage.

    The VIP speaker cable has been in for 3 days. It's utterly sublime. Almost all the music I've played thus far sounds quite different to previous renditions. The midrange is more beautiful, the bass is more expansive and impactful when called to be; the highs are extended without any smear or edge. Music just sounds utterly effortless and silky smooth. It's so much more relaxed when called to be; notes hang in mid air and decay with such delicacy; yet, at the same time, it's also faster and more furious when it needs to be, too. Blackest of black backgrounds. Phenomenal detail retrieval - I want for no more. I don't know how Gryphon pulls all this off. It has completely freed the Diablo 300 to show off its full potential - it is staggeringly good.

    In this system, the Jorma and Argento are not on the same level. Music now sounds 'correct' and I'm no longer listening to hifi.

    For anyone reading these experiences for research purposes, my recommendation, increasingly and if you have the budget, is to do yourself a favour and take a holiday from trying to make different manufacturer products work together, with all the attendant angst and costly mistakes and buy into an all-encompassing brand whose sound you like. Gryphon plays it how it is; no frequency hikes for fake-big bass; no tubey added warmth; no thinness masquerading as detail. (I'm not affiliated, just very happy after years of blind alleys). That said, if you're looking for a speaker cable that does what they all claim to do, but frequently don't - i.e. utter transparency with no perceivable colouration or bias and total neutrality - VIP should be on your list to try.

    (Disclaimer - if you like tubey warmth and frequencies fiddled-with to make the music play in a certain way, I am not knocking it!)

    All that remains for me now is to audition Essence with a view to moving exclusively to Class A

    So the Gryphon was the winner in your opinion?

    Well, my comment was aimed at the technical recording job. I'm wary of judging anything reproduced on my Mac laptop! What I hear is a very smooth, holographic, laid-back D'Agostino and a faster, slightly less refined but more snappy Gryphon. I'm very sensitive to highs/leading edges these days and regret I liked the D'Agostino presentation far more than I wanted to. That's as much as I can bring myself to admit. But what it's like in reality I'll never know. It probably comes down to personal preference in the end as they're clearly both staggeringly good. I can say, assuredly, in my room, Diablo 300/Mojo S/VIP spkr cable is sounding wonderful. With a view to even more soundstage and organic sound Essence is firmly on my radar now. Stay safe and well.
