    Stunning appearance and I'd bet they sound even better than they look with that supporting system!

    I'm guessing you rate that combo as one of the better you've had in the shop?

    The tube components in the picture are:

    Audio Research REF6 (on the top shelf)
    Audio Research VT80 amp (on the amp stand)
    VAC Signature 200iQ amp

    The Gryphon Diablo 300 is absolutely incredible. It has a big sound, with massive power, it demonstrates amazing control of sibilance, terrific bass, 3D soundstage and glorious vocals. A friend was over for a listen and he said, "there is no trace of any electronic artifacts."

    I also have the Gryphon Diablo 120, but haven't hooked it up yet.

    They will sound great with Gryphon, Vitus, VAC, AR...what a collection you now have. I have heard them with Luxman, CAT, Ypsilon hybrids, always sound good. They also do extremely well in multichannel.

    They do.
    The center channel blends in very nicely. And I have V1w's as surrounds.

    Yes, they sorted out the US Distributor situation and we are back. Was never a problem with the speaker! We technically still sell MIT, but we are moving to focus our cable efforts on Shunyata, AQ and WW. There are some concerns about the longevity of MIT.
