The Gryphon Diablo 333 makes Canadian Debut as the “World’s Best Integrated” at Salon Audio Montreal 2024–

Montreal, Canada, 22 March 2024: Gryphon Audio Designs ApS, designer and manufacturer of Luxury Audio Systems, proudly announces the Canadian premiere of their new Diablo 333 Integrated Amplifier, today at Salon Audio Montreal. This much-anticipated debut takes place in Hotel Bonaventure, Montreal Room 2, courtesy of Gryphon Audio Premiere Dealer and Owner of Bliss Acoustics of Ottawa, Dragan Reljic.

Surpassing the legendary Diablo 300 was no simple feat: introduced at High-End Munich 2015, the Diablo 300 established a new benchmark in Integrated Amplifier performance and became the best-selling Ultra-Luxury integrated in High-End audio history.

Over the past eight years, however, new component technologies and intensive engineering research have suggested areas for improvement. Circuit highlights from the new Apex and Commander, Gryphon’s flagship Amplifier and Preamplifier, have “Trickled-Down” to the Diablo 333, which boasts ten percent more output power than its legendary predecessor. New ultra-fast, low-capacitance pre-driver transistors deliver both enhanced musicality and superior measured performance.

One look at the 333 and the Gryphon DNA is obvious: the triangular display panel with 4.3” TFT capacitive touch screen evokes the aesthetic created by Gryphon Founder Flemming Rasmussen for Apex and Commander, as do custom-made chassis spikes which enhance both mechanical integrity and visual harmony. Also developed for Apex, Gryphon’s bespoke binding

posts are also found on the 333’s back panel. Sculpted from a block of aluminum, the remote handset from Commander replaces the “Wand” remote supplied with Diablo 300. A new, more intuitive menu structure enhances the user interface while a USB 2.0 socket on Diablo’s rear panel simplifies firmware upgrades.

As with the Diablo 300, the 333 can be outfitted with optional Phono and DAC modules which have also been completely redesigned. The PS-3 RIAA module features True Dual Mono Class A-coupled topology from input to output, with no global negative feedback and discrete balanced circuitry featuring matched transistor arrays.

Gold-plated Neutrik XLR balanced input sockets replace the RCA sockets utilized in the previous generation. MC load impedance can be set externally with left/right rear panel switches, versus the internal jumpers found on the PS-2S. MC/MM setting is front-panel selectable via the Diablo 333 menu. Gryphon’s new DAC-3 D/A MODULE incorporates the latest High-Performance Sabre DAC: the ES9039PRO.

Seven user-selectable PCM digital roll-off filters are included, as are a full assortment of USB, AES/EBU, BNC, and TOSLINK inputs. The 333’s USB input is compatible with all current DigitalAudio Formats.

The new Diablo 333 will be on active display in Bliss Acoustics’ Montreal Room 2, driving AudioNec EVO-3 Speakers. Nagra’s Reference Anniversary Turntable with Nagra Reference Cartridge and Nagra HD Phono, Playback Designs MPS-8 SACD Player/DAC and Aurender N 20 Network Player, Modulum Racks, CAD GC 3.1 Ground Control, Luna Cables Rouge Series and Stillpoints Aperture II Acoustic Panels complete this “Super System.”

Anthony Chiarella from Gryphon Audio N.A., Herve Brasebin from AudioPrim (AudioNec), Rene Laflamme and Andre Theriault from Nagra, Danny Labrecque and Erik Fortier from Luna Cables, Jean Francois Michaud from Modulum Audio and Dragan Reljic, Owner, Bliss Acoustics will be on-hand to demonstrate the system and answer questions.
