That's a nice amp. I currently run a classic ML 585 and love it. Lots of new tech out there. Surprised Dag has not come up.....

I'd suggest the new McIntosh MA12000 integrated for 14,000.00 or the Dag Momentum integrated for 45,000.00. The Humbolt comes in 55,000.00 which is pricey for an integrated. At 350 w/ch the hybrid Mac is much more cost effective. I'd prefer it over the 320 w/ch Humbolt same price.

Best

Charles

Gryphon Diablo 300. I never heard the Diablo. But I did hear the Mephisto. It gave me goosebumps.

The Gryphon Diablo 300 is no only the best integrated amp on the market, it out performs some separates costing thousands more.

I'm surprised the Vinnie Rossi L2iSE hasn't been mentioned. It bested two set ups of separates in my system:
Pass Labs XP32 driving First Watt S-1s and a Shindo Giscours driving Pass Labs XA30.8. And not by a little, by a lot. I now have Linlai 2A3 tubes doing the DHT work in the pre and it is even better. The VR L2iSE is driving my 92db sensitive Cube Audio Nenuphar speakers. Most engrossing sound I've experienced to date.
Only Shindo gear I have left is my 301 Record Player. Don't think that's going anywhere.

If I was looking for an integrated, the Boulder 866 would be at the top of must audition list.

With a proper pairing of a speaker that can showcase the tonal/timbral qualities, resolution and a grain-free presentation, it can be a stunning system on a reasonable level budget.


Just listen to this potential... This has some serious performance
