Gryphon vs Luxman vs Accuphase

Thinking that I may bite the bullet this year and get into a Gryphon Diablo 300 but before I consider shelling out that much, wanted to get some input from any of you that have heard this amp in comparison to Luxman or Accuphase. The 509X from Luxman costs half that of the Gryphon and is more within reach. The Accuphase E650 is not that far off the Diablo 300 pricing. IF the Gryphon is better in your mind, curious to hear whether you think the Luxman or Accuphase come close?

It sounds like all 3 have rave reviews. One is a class A while the other two are Class A/B.

I am not OP but have excellent experience in Line Magnetic 508 amplifier.

I inserted Synergistic Blue Fuse (150$).

Mullard ECC85 (6sl7) 130$

Sylvania 1944 vt231 (6sn7gt) 125$

Psavne Acme 805 733$

It really shine with above combination of tube and fuse.

It is almost comparable to my Silbatone 300B SET int amp fitted with original WE 300B (25k$) at transparency, details.

If you are tube lover, LM805 or 508 will fit your need.
