Gryphon Diablo 250 vs Hegel390

Hi all,
Looking at buying an integrated and was close to pulling the trigger on Hegel390. But came across a used Diablo 250 at the same price... Loved the sound of Hegel and could not yet audition the Diablo. Worth giving Diablo a shot, despite it's age (almost 10 yo)?
Appreciate your comments.

Hegel is nowhere near Gryphon quality. Hegel is midfi compared to Gryphon.
Hegel has a very good price to performance ratio.For someone with low budget and who wants to buy new, Hegel is a great choice.
@greg_f  Absolutely it's a different animal.
@greg_f Try to audition the Diablo 300, you will be surprised.It’s the type of integrated you can keep for a lifetime.
