Strength:

Calidez del sonido, perfecta estabilidad en la entrega de poder, desempeña a la perfección cualesquier clase de bocinas, diseño minimalista y perfección en los detalles de sus acabados, calidad insuperable en los cableados internos. Inisisto, una obra de arte.

Weakness:

Demasiado pesado, como es normal en estos equipos emite una cantidad inmesa de calor derivada de los altos consumos de energía que requiere para trabajar.

En mi concepto uno de los mejores amplificadores crados en la historia del high end. Desempeña a la perfección cualquier clase denbocinas, la extraordinaria calidad de los materiales con que está elaborado demuestra que es una verdadera obra de arte.

SCHWINNINDIA   AudioPhile [Nov 03, 2006]
Strength:

Power - quality & quantity
Unaffected by speaker load - any impedence is OK for it.
Build Quality - will last for 2 generations
Is right up there with the Pass Labs + Accuphase + Spectral + Karan and the likes.
The only amplifier that will better the Gryphon will be [IMHO] Goldmund.

Weakness:

Needs a lot of Power [Wall Socket should be in a position to deliver]
Set up is difficult - weight & heat sinks
Disapates a lot of heat [it is like a heater in a room]
I need 3 tons of airconditioning in a small 200 sq. ft. room to keep the temperature ambiant.
Needs 2 Power Cords - expensive & occupies a lot of space
Cost - the amplifier is too expensive @ 25 K US $'s

One of the Best Power Amplifiers ever made in the history of High End Audio - Gryphon Audio Designs - Antilion Singature
This is the best way I could begin to describe the Gryphon Power Amplifier.

It is powerful & yet gentle.
Can drive 'any speaker' under the sun. Any impedence - Any sensitivity
Plays perfectly with its own pre amplifier - Sonata Allegro.

Customer Service

Gryphon Audio Design is a great audio company.
Makes fabulous electronics & speakers too [Trident is my favourite]
Very professionally run.
I do hope that they re-appoint a distributor for India. I need to buy the Cantata to complete my set.
