The Gryphon sound was such that I sold immediately my Pass Labs XA160.8 and XP22 for a new pair of Mephisto Stereo and Pandora.

The new equipment was delivered just before Christmas.
The sound is now amazing

CH Precision is extremely expensive. Out of reach for most audiophiles. They need to make a cheaper entry level tier like Soulution with their 3 series components.

@savakntr
Could you explain in objective terms "far better" means, so the audience can benefit from the characteristics you heard?
Thanks very much.

Highly recommended.
Hi CMarin,
I see you like the CH Precisions. But I also do see the Gryphon Solos as your main amps.
Any way did you compare the CH M1.1 mono amps to the gryphon Solos?
Thanks a heap!

Elaborate please. What did the system as a hole consist of?

Hi sthekepat,

No Iím sorry I havenít yet had the opportunity to compare the Gryphon Mephistos with the CH M1.1s. That was my intent, and had discussed the option with my CH dealer, but unfortunately the Covid situation has made it difficult to transact.

How are you liking the CH I1? I'm becoming more and more interested in this integrated and have read good things. Curious what other components are in your system.
