    Crackle in the left channel of my Gryphon Colosseum

    I've thought about using piano removal firm should the need ever arise. I was impressed by how well they transported a piano we sold so a Gryphon amp should be no problem and they are used to handling with care

    Gryphon Apex & Commander

    Thanks for sharing that. I'm a little surprised at the choice of front end . Is streaming that good nowadays to show what the Apex is capable of ?

    Gryphon cone footers

    Yes very helpful thanks - I couldn't find anything out there about the differences they made. So with the Pantheons do you unscrew the flat footers that came with them and replace them with the spikes ? I would need 2 sets Did you get a chance to compare with the Atlas spikes ?

    Make way, the big boy is here.

    Yes -having spent a lifetime upgrading and swapping hi-fi components to solve 'problems' it was a huge relief to discover Gryphon . It just sounds so natural and viscerally exciting . Expensive yes but cheaper in the long run

    Harmonic Resolution Systems or Grand Prix Audio ?

    The Incredible Importance of Fine tuning (to me)

    I would recommend Jim Smith Get Better Sound . I must admit I found the nearly 300 page book and 3 DVDs a bit daunting and it took me a while to get round to it. However the results have been amazing and well worth the time and effort involved. I realise now I had just been tinkering round the...

    Can my proposed new room work?

    Hmm probably equivalent to a pre-amp upgrade. The sound was more full bodied with more 'snap' and a sense of rightness . Hard to describe really but for the cost of the package (discounted now as Through the Sound Barrier coming out) , laser measure and Chieftains CD Tears of Stone it was...

    Can my proposed new room work?

    Well I was a bit sceptical initially but I thought I would give it a go. It took about a week to work my way through it , it's not easy. However it did make a huge difference to presence , dynamics and tone even though the speakers weren't moved that far from their original position. It's not...

    New Spectral 200S power amp released

    Thanks for that. Just trying to work out what the suffix S means . Is it different to previous Universal amps? Presume there will still be the requirement for Spectral/MIT cables

    Phono Preamp to match with Spectral Gear

    My Naim Superline with Supercap (non DR) works really well with my 15SS. I tried the Supercap power supply DR upgrade but found it dark and lacking in dynamics

    Spectral dma 260 hum

    This hum issue is dragging on a bit.It seems the domestic amp at 120v works fine in the USA. I presume Spectral have tried using a step down voltage converter from 240v-120v for the European market. Is there any reason why that wouldn't work?
