Product Description

Gryphon Diablo is quite possibly the most popular High End integrated amplifier of all time. Despite sales of thousands of units, its virtual absence from the second-hand market is a reliable indicator of the extreme loyalty of Diablo owners.

Now, the Gryphon Diablo makes way for the Gryphon Diablo 300, a revitalised iteration of the technologies and components that made it the world's most award-winning High End integrated amplifier.

In updating the Diablo, the Gryphon engineering team faced a considerable challenge. In addition to Product of the Year awards including Lyd & Bilde (Norway), 6 Moons.com (USA) and Haute FidelitΩ (France), many of the most critical professional listeners have been inspired to effusive praise, as in this evocative turn of phrase from Hi Fi Choice (UK): "Sounds like God's own stereo."

And there are many more:

"Ultimately, Gryphon's Diablo is a contradiction in terms, because the sound it makes is truly Angelic." Australian Hi Fi

"Spectacular design and equally spectacular sound quality. An ultra-cool potent amplifier for demanding loudspeakers and demanding listeners." Lyd & Bilde (Norway)

6mooms.com noted "the phenomenal level of resolution, detail retrieval, ambience recreation and dynamics this amplifier is capable of."

The original Diablo also found its way into the pages of the mainstream press, where the Sydney Morning Herald (Australia) praised its "exceptional sound quality, even when driving speakers other amplifiers have found difficult to handle."
