“Gryphon Diablo 300 is unequivocally and by awide margin, the best integrated amplifier everto grace our audio testing and music listeningenviroment.”

Audio Esoterica, Australia

 

"...an excellent combination of power andmusicality in a bold brutal design offering allfeatures. The musicality and power does notconflict, they supplement each other and thisdualism makes it one of the greatest amplifiersthat we have ever encountered...”

Pro High End, Russia

 

A step closer to Nirvana”Best Hi Fi, Spain“The Diablo 300 is a mad, inimitablemasterpiece.”

Hans Wetzel, Soundstage, USA


“This is heavenly sound in a Diabolicpackaging.”Pro High End, Russia“Deviishly great” ( Musical performance rating100% )

Michael Lange, Chief Editor, Stereo, Germany

 

“Integrated amplifier of the year 2015”

Edgar Kranmer, Sound & Image, Australia

“But throw in the not insignificant fact that
the Gryphon integrated can accept both an
internal DAC and phono stage, and suddenly
the Diablo 300 looks awfully like the nerve
center of a serious (and yet seriously simple)
high-end rig. Just add source and speakers.”

Reviews of Diablo 120


“Now the music becomes emotionally
accessible and invested. The rest of it—the
usual talk of frequency response, tonal balance, soundstaging etc. - is just small print.”
6moons.com


“Let’s make it clear up front:
Gryphon Diablo 120 is an amazingly good amplifier. It exudes authority and maintains control of loudspeakers, with sufficient finesse to reveal even the slightest variations in chamber music or jazz recordings.”
Stereopluss.no

“Diablo 120 fulfills all these criteria with competence and intelligence, without concession or compromise and at the same time achieves all objectives of linearity, stability, consistency and authority.”
Audio Italy

“Simply amazing”
Audio.de


 

 

“Powerful, efficient and very musical, Diablo 120is one of the 3 or 4 best integrated amps in itsprice range.”

Haute Fidelité. France

 

“embodies everything the brand stands for, from the striking aesthetics to performance that is both high-end and highly musical.”

“what it does deliver in combination with the Mojos, is a sense of unburstable musical enthusiasm, dynamic headroom, and rhythmic authority in a package that’s easier on the wallet, considerably easier on therunning costs, and demands a lot less real estate. “

Hi-Fi plus UK

 

“This is the first rung on the ladder to greatness from the grandmasters of Scandinavian high end audio systems, Gryphon. Both phenomenally well made and exceptionally well-matched, this power duo work beautifully.”

Hi-Fi Plus UK, April, 2019
