The Diablo 300 integrated amplifier’s optional internal DAC module draws heavily on the innovative engineering that inspired the highly acclaimed Gryphon Kalliope digital-to-analogue converter. Critics around the world praise the breakthrough design and performance of the Kalliope:
“The Kalliope is at the cutting edge of digital performance. This one is becoming a permanent reference at Tone.” – Tone Audio, USA, www.tonepublications.com/magazine/
“Amazing realism and utterly analogue fluidity. A total success!” – Haute Fidelité, France
“It is hard for me to imagine a more musically accurate DAC in the marketplace today.” – Enjoythemusic.com, USA
“By far the best standalone digital to analogue converter ever auditioned by yours truly” – Fedelta del Suono, Italy, no. 221
Now, in classic Gryphon style, technologies and components developed for our cost-no-object, state of the art reference models trickle down in our product range. And when it rains at Gryphon, it really trickles down hard.
Ready for current and future digital audio formats, the cutting edge ESS Sabre ES9018 DAC chip stands at the heart of the Diablo 300 DAC module, partnered with heavily regulated, fully discrete, ultra-low noise +/- 22VDC voltage supplies to ensure optimal noise suppression and minimal analogue THD.
