Product Description

The Gryphon Essence preamplifier is designed with ultimate fidelity in mind. Its strictly dual mono configuration results in a short signal path with minimal internal wiring and reduced interchannel crosstalk. Superfluous circuity has been removed from the signal path to reduce signal path coloration to an absolute minimum. The preamplifier features a pure line design with two balanced XLR inputs and three single-ended phono inputs, and comes with menu-activated functions that allow for level matching, input naming, maximum level and start-up level. The preamplifier can also be configured with a 0 dB AV throughput for easy integration with multi-channel installations. Additionally, the Gryphon Essence preamplifier offers modular options including an MM/MC phonostage or a digital to analogue converter. The Gryphon PS2-S MM/MC Phono Module is a true dual-mono design for enhanced channel separation and is capable of extracting every musical detail for ultimate realism. The Gryphon ZENA DAC module is based on the award-winning Gryphon Kalliope digital-to-analogue converter and is future-proof for any current or foreseeable high-resolution digital format. The Gryphon Essence preamplifier delivers exceptional bass performance and renders the width and depth of a soundstage with three-dimensional realism and precision. Its luxurious design combines brushed, anodised aluminium with subtle black acrylic details for a highly refined aesthetic sensibility.
