    As a full line manufacturer, Gryphon probably uses Gryphon for the most part.

    Just to keep in mind, several of these companies have business relationships (like common ownership) which are reflected in their equipment selections. Some examples from the OP that come to mind are ARC/Sonus faber, Focal/Naim, and Revel/JBL/Mark Levinson.

    Yes I'm aware of that. I'm more curious about independent companies.

    Mc uses all Mc.
    VAC has several speakers including Thiel, Tannoy, VS, etc. I joke with Kevin that if he can make the product sound great on a Thiel, it will sound great on any speaker. LOL. That Thiel tweeter. Eek. Still not as bad as the Paradigm. Just saying...well, maybe. Tough call.
    CJ uses Zellaton I think
    No clue on D’Ag. Would ASSUME Wilson.
    B&W uses Rotel and Classe and McIntosh. But the Luxman factory in Japan uses B&W 800D3’s.
    Luxman works great with anything.
    Vitus has been showing with Rockport, but they have the big Ypsilon’s I THINK I’m the factory.
    Gryphon with Gryphon
    Boulder with Rockport
    YG with AudioNet
    Nordost with ??
    MIT with Magico
    BAT with Quad

    Thanks for the reply Mike. Lower end paradigm lines always sounded bright to me. Have you had a chance to listen their persona line? Also heard Magico, Rockport and Wilson use Transparent cables for internal wiring, YG uses Nordost and Vandersteen uses Audioquest.

    Yes. There isn’t one Paradigm I would consider.
