Have Luxman 509x. Considering Pass Labs INT-250 or Dan D’Agostino Progression Integrated
@eclumsden  Get the new Diablo 333 (with phono stage module) and be done.  
Anyone bought a Gryphon Diablo 333?
@nyev  I will probably get a chance to hear them side by side when the importer gets the 333, hopefully very soon. They also have the Essence, Antileon and Mephisto. In my part of the world the 333 is almost 50% more expensive than a D300 and th... 
Anyone bought a Gryphon Diablo 333?
I’m sure the 333 is a bit better/different than the 300, but how much better can it be without being better than the Essence pre/amp…….  
Have Luxman 509x. Considering Pass Labs INT-250 or Dan D’Agostino Progression Integrated
I was considering the Pass int250 and Dag Prog Int but finally decided on the Gryphon Diablo 300 which I preferred over the other two. I like the slight ”dark” quality to the presentation and the bass is awesome; powerful and articulate with great... 
What was the first power cable that you noticed a difference in the sound?
@curiousjim Bought the A/C Master coupler round 97 for less than $400 If memory serves.  
What was the first power cable that you noticed a difference in the sound?
Synergistic Research A/C Master Coupler. Still have it on my Diablo 300.  
Gryphon Diablo 300 vs Vitus RI-101
@thieliste Yes it is system dependent. Thiel speakers can sound a bit bright and aggressive with the ”wrong” amp. Both Diablo 300 and Vitus 101mkII are great sounding amps….but perhaps not the best match with Thiel speakers.  
Amplifier Specification questions
All amps. P=R*I^2=R*4*Iq^2  
Amplifier Specification questions
This is the reply I got from Pass Labs when I asked this question: ”The X260.8 does 34 watts peak in class A into 8 and will do about half that into 4” Your amp will operate in class A up to 9 watts in 4 ohms  
Luxman D-07x
 I called around a bit and contacted a dealer that carries both the Luxman and Esoteric.  He actually liked the new Esoteric K-05XD and it bested the D-07X and D-010X   I’m interested in both the Esoteric K-05XD and Luxman D-07X. Has anybody el... 
Aesthetix Romulus Sign. vs Esoteric K-05XD
Anyone who has heard the new K-05XD?  
what amplification are you running with your Dynaudio Heritage Specials?
A Dynaudio dealer told me that the best amp they have had on the Dynaudios was a Diablo 300…..and they are not a Gryphon dealer.  
any current integrated amps in market have great dacs?
Gryphon Diablo no good ?   @inna The Diablo 300 is still among the very best. The D333 will probably be even better but the price is much higher.  
Intg Amps: Hegel 590 vs NAD M33 Masters vs Gryphon Diablo 120
@missioncoonery If you are located in the states I fully understand why you choose Pass Labs; easier to get service and lower prices. Here in Sweden the Pass Int 250 and Diablo 300 have the same pricetag, my understanding is that the Pass is quite... 
Intg Amps: Hegel 590 vs NAD M33 Masters vs Gryphon Diablo 120
@marcyun Yes, he explained that the Antileon stands out from the other amps with it’s more colored sound; fuller, warmer with huge bass. He said that the Antileon will stay in their lineup forever. Rune also told us that the D120 is slightly warme...
