Previously the object of widespread scorn from audiophiles, the full potential of the integrated amplifier was finally realised in the Gryphon Diablo, so far ahead of its time that it - with typical Gryphon longevity – remained the absolute reference in its class for a full decade.Gryphon Diablo is quite possibly the most popular High End integrated amplifier of all time.Production director is a huge role; whoever is hired will coordinate development on one of Blizzard’s flagship franchises.Indeed, it’s perhaps a little odd that they’re advertising for the job on the open internet rather than approaching candidates directly - though, they're almost certainly doing that too.(SACRAMENTO, CA) –Governor Jerry Brown recently signed into law Assembly Bill (AB) 361 by Assemblymember Katcho Achadjian (R-San Luis Obispo) and coauthored by Senators Bill Monning (D-Carmel) and Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara).The bill received unanimous, bipartisan support in the Legislature and will take effect immediately.“It is imperative that we ensure that our local governments have the necessary funding tools to continue their emergency response planning for any disaster that could occur at Diablo Canyon,” said Achadjian, “AB 361 is also a responsible step to ensure that an independent peer review panel will continue to review seismic testing results at the Power Plant.” AB 361 extends the sunset date of the Nuclear Planning Assessment Special Account to August 26, 2025, to continue funding emergency planning programs for Diablo Canyon Power Plant.
In addition to Product of the Year awards including Lyd & Bilde (Norway), 6 (USA) and Haute Fidelité (France), many of the most critical professional listeners have been inspired to effusive praise, as in this evocative turn of phrase from Hi Fi Choice (UK): ”Sounds like God’s own stereo.” And there are many more: The original Diablo also found its way into the pages of the mainstream press, where the Sydney Morning Herald (Australia) praised its “exceptional sound quality, even when driving speakers other amplifiers have found difficult to handle.” 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 much lauded Gryphon Pandora preamplifier and Mephisto power amplifier.
The extreme wideband frequency response of the Diablo 300 extends from 0.5 Hz to 350 k Hz and its prodigious 300 Watt (8 Ohms) power output capability represents a significant increase over the original Diablo.
Though this shouldn’t be taken as confirmation that Diablo 4 is in the works, it’s the strongest evidence yet.
The ultra-transparent, fully balanced volume attenuator topology fully exploits the two balanced inputs.
Unlike the vast majority of solid state volume controls that typically introduce dozens of resistors in the signal path, the Diablo 300 employs no more than two for any given level setting.
