    Any Gryphon D120 owners on the forum?

    I've read some reviews, all highly positive. But I'd appreciate any comments from owners or anyone that has auditioned one.

    I love mine. It has the built in DAC.

    The Gryphon 120 is driving Magico A3s with a Lumin U1 Mini as the source. Great combination!

    I purchased everything from Mike. Now he's tempting me with the Magico M2s....

    I'll be visiting Mike next month and making a decision on an amp and streaming components to go with my Harbeth Super HL 5+ 40th Anniversary Model speakers. A Gryphon D120 is in my top five. I'd love to go with a D300 but it's simply out of my budget.

    Pending availability I'll also be auditioning a Luxman 509x, Luxman 590axii, Simaudio Moon 700i v2 and/or 340ix, Hegel H590 and/or H390, NAIM Supernait 3, Pass Labs int250 and VAC Phi 170. I'm thinking there could be a few surprises awaiting me too, we'll see.

    There's something very wrong if I can't find a winner/s in this bunch. All these amps, including the D120, are very consistently, highly rated in reviews. I've read most of those reviews. Now it's auditioning time. And, yes, my ears will tell the story. Anyone care to make a prediction on my choice?

    I'll get the DAC too if I go with the Gryphon D120. I wonder how it will sound with Harbeths?
