As the lead-in to the Danish brand’s 30th anniversary celebrations, Gryphon Audio Designs launches the Gryphon Diablo 300, a major overhaul of the internationally acclaimed Gryphon Diablo.

The original Diablo stood its ground for a full decade, before making way for a new, upgraded iteration of the technologies and components that made it quite possibly the most popular High End integrated amp of all time with thousands of units sold worldwide.DIABLO_300_FRIT

Fortunately, in designing the Diablo 300, the Gryphon crew had the luxury and privilege of being able to draw heavily on concepts, components and technological breakthroughs that emerged during the evolution of the recent  top of the line Gryphon Pandora preamplifier and Mephisto power amplifier.

Gryphon founder and CEO Flemming E. Rasmussen explains the importance of in-house trickle-down technology in the brand’s design concept, “One of the main purposes of our no-compromise, cost-no-object test bed platforms like the Pandora and Mephisto is to serve as a source of inspiration for somewhat more accessible components. For instance, the Diablo 300 can be fitted with an optional PCM/DSD DAC module based on the innovative, award-winning Gryphon Kalliope digital-to- analogue converter or an MM/MC phonostage based on our Legato Legacy phonostage.

Whether you’re out there on the digital cutting edge or one of the dedicated analogue enthusiasts who continues to enjoy the musical treasures only available on black vinyl disc, the Gryphon Diablo 300 can be tailored to suit your tastes at the time of original purchase or later as your needs evolve.

Forward thinking is a key element in what sets the Gryphon apart and a large part of the secret behind the long life of our products. DIABLO_300_BAGFRA (1)

The Diablo 300 ultra-transparent, fully balanced volume control derived from the Pandora preamp is executed via a microprocessor-controlled 43-step attenuator for precision in setting the desired listening level. Select resistors and relays ensure long life and perfect level matching with no more than two resistors in the signal path at any setting.

The extreme wideband frequency response of the Diablo 300 extends from 0.5 Hz to 350 kHz and its prodigious 300 Watt (8 Ohms) power output represents a full 25% increase over the original Diablo. The extreme high current capability of the Diablo 300 allows it to double its output to 600 Watts in a 4 Ohm load and a massive 950 Watts into 2 Ohms.DIABLO_300_AABEN

Like every Gryphon product, Gryphon Diablo 300 is designed by Gryphon founder and CEO Flemming E. Rasmussen and manufactured in Denmark.

Price 12.800 euro plus eventual local taxes.
