As the lead-in to the Danish brand’s 30th anniversary celebrations, Gryphon Audio Designs has launched the Gryphon Diablo 300, a major overhaul of the 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 a popular integrated amp.
In designing the Diablo 300, the Gryphon crew drew heavily on concepts, components and technological breakthroughs that emerged during the evolution of the recent Gryphon Pandora preamplifier and Mephisto power amplifier.

The Diablo 300 ultra-transparent, fully balanced volume control derived from the Pandora preamp is executed via a microprocessor-controlled 43-step attenuator for extreme 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 0.5Hz to 350kHz and its prodigious 300 Watt (8 Ohms) power output represents a full 25-percent 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.
The Gryphon Diablo 300 integrated amplifier offers vast reserves of pure, stable power. Like every Gryphon product, Gryphon Diablo 300 is designed by Gryphon founder and CEO Flemming E. Rasmussen and manufactured in Denmark.
