Gryphon Commander Pre Amplifier



How Gryphon Built the Perfect Preamplifier
Since our company’s founding nearly 40 years ago, the philosophy of Gryphon Audio Designs of Denmark has remained constant: the relentless pursuit of sonic perfection without commercial compromises in design, construction or cost. All Gryphon products have been conceived in this same perfectionist spirit: uncompromising engineering in the service of music. Impeccable build quality complemented by our original, highly refined “Nordic Noir” aesthetic sensibility and absolute simplicity of use.

Our starting point for Commander was Gryphon’s extraordinary Pandora, widely regarded
as one of the world’s finest preamplifiers. Commander shares Pandora’s Dual-Mono
layout with separate chassis for signal and power supply circuitry. Pandora’s single-
ended Class A input buffer is retained, as it offers the compelling advantage of passing
the signal through the smallest possible number of electrical components–two transistors
and a single resistor–yielding sound that is exceptionally transparent, fast, natural and
open. Neither preamplifier employs any global negative feedback

Naturally, Commander embodies major advances in many sonically-critical areas,
including a high-precision, extremely low noise voltage reference in connection with the
analogue series regulators which supply the amplifier stages. The Commander’s voltage
reference has approximately 50 times lower noise than the already-excellent reference
used in Pandora! A pair of fully discrete, linear power supplies feed each channel’s
analog circuit while a third is dedicated to the digital control circuitry, thus maintaining
absolute mechanical separation and electrical isolation between digital and analog
