Gryphon Diablo 300 vs Vitus RI-101

   So I've been itching to upgrade my amp. I currently have: PS audio Directstream -> PS BHK preamp -> parasound JC1 -> Focal Sopra 2.
    I narrow down to these 2 candidates. Any one with experience with both int amps can comment on them?Thanks!!!

Hi all, I got experiance with gryphon and vitus but not exact models mentioned. 

Own Vitus ri100 now for last 6 months and not looking to make any changes soon, convert from separates and was on quest for years to find Vitus, hands down. Previously own Gryphon Atilla which is pre version of diablo 120. I was impresed with gryphon slam and overall performace but noticed that preamp section was the wick link as I bypass it and only use its power aplification section with hegel P30 as preamp for some time. That combination was very good or sruning I should say but when i got my hands on rs100 (power amp) I was immediately taken on with realizm and smooth presentation, like best of two words ss and tubs. Then I managed to get hands on freshly serviced ri100 unit and I must tell I did not think I ever get rid of Hegel P30 but this integrated unit just blowed away any previous configuration. Soundstage, image, details, transaprency everything just got on to next level. 

I haven’t post my journey for awhile as op.

So Originally I had JC1+ARC LS preamp. Alright, but the pre was giving too much gain, and ARC pre to me unless reference, it’s just low price/performance.

Then I got the BHK pre, was not expecting much, at first it sounded only decent to me, but seeing alot of people like it after tube rolling, got myself some new issue gold lion, wow....completely different preamp. Still leaned toward warm side, but very energetic and abit wild, loved it.

Then things got interesting; managed to get a SIA-025 mkI, buttery smooth, holographic presentation, does everything. Truly I can see why they say it’s the best int-amp in the world, tons of reserve power.

Covid hitted, moved to somewhere I have more space, manage to build another system, got a hold of a pass x150.8 to try out, wild pleasing sound, needles never moved no matter how much I cranked it up (meaning it never leaves class A, for X series). Put back the BHK, yes everything is in place. I will not say its better than SIA-025, but it’s such a interesting wild holographic sound, even watching chick-flicks with this sys is interesting.

Will never get rid of the SIA-025 tho, the sound is more polite, but smooth velvety and subtly beautiful.

This is just my SS stuff, I have a whole set of tube SET mess my SO hates going on the side as well......

This is a great thread and is very useful for someone such as myself looking at a 2nd tier SS integrated.  This is a follow up question re. Vitus.  Is it a waste to buy an SIA-025 (Mark 1 or 2) if I’m never going to use the low output class A output?  Would I be better off with an RI-101 or RS unit?

 It does not respond much to source or cable changes.

?! My D300 responded very well to a better power cord.

I preferred the Diablo 300 over the Vitus RI101mkII, better looking too.
