Wilson Sasha W/P amplifier pairing
I would highly recommend Gryphon. I’m driving a pair of W/P 8 with a Diablo 300, by far the best they’ve ever sounded   
Compatibility between speakers and sub.
REL are about as simple as it gets. Use the high level input (which draws the voltage directly from your amps output stage) and dial in cross over point and gain  
Best High Current amplifiers stable into low impedances
Gryphon Diablo 300. 950W/channel into 2ohm!!!!  
INSIDE LOOK NOBEL llC PURE ACOUSTIC
This must be one of the most useless videos... shows nothing but a cheaply made speaker  
Does anyone on this Forum have any experience with Audio research ref 610t monoblocks
Just to put the re-tubing cost in perspective.... You're looking at about $5k for a set, but that can easily go upwards for premium tubes. https://www.thetubestore.com/shop-by-amp/home-audio-tube-packages/audio-research-amps/audio-research-refe... 
Recommendation for low to normal level listening a 13.5' x 21' x 8' room
For less than 10k, you can get a pair of Wilson Watt Puppy 8. They rival the clarity of electrostatic, space of a planar and have dynamics to the point where a subwoofer is definitely not needed.   My system consists of W/P 8, driven by Gryphon ... 
Speakers To Replace Castle Edens
Visit New Hampshire and Fidelis and AV Therapy. Both will be able to help you and you save on taxes.  
Transimpedance phono stage
@chayro , you are of corse right… the simple solution would be to get the phono module for the Diablo. Not only simpler, but the fact that I don’t need another set of interconnects and another power cord, makes really attractive also from a cost v... 
Boulder 866 vs Gryphon Diablo 300
Both are outstanding integrated amps, so you really can't go wrong with them. To me, the Gryphon Diablo 300 is quite magical in its ability to put you "there" without any details sticking out. Just one coherent picture right in front of you.   T... 
Recommendation on speakers for listening to live music
If you want to recreate live music, you will need low end. There's nothing like a great live recording with full range speakers. Think larger, floor standing speakers. The MC275's should do well with reasonably easy to drive speakers. Joseph Audio... 
Considering buying a used Gryphon Diablo 250
$6k sounds reasonable for a Diablo250 in good condition. The Diablo 300 will be north of $10K (without DAC or phono, more if it has either or both). The Diablo120 seems to go for about $7-8k.   I would seriously consider listening to the Diablo2... 
“House” Character of Popular $20-$30k Speakers
I'm driving Wilson Watt Puppy 8's with a Gryphon Diablo 300. Talk about synergy!!! Ever so slightly sweet, but extremely detailed and does space (depth, width, height) better than anything I've ever heard. The bass is super tight and impactful, bu... 
Need recommendations for a streamer
I'm a big proponent of keeping the ROON computer completely separate from your audio chain.   Here's what I'm using... Roon Nucleus+ wired LAN Stack Link II wired LAN, usb out to Matrix SPDIF/2 out with i2s to PS Audio DirectStream   About a... 
D’Agostino Progression integrated
I listened to int250, progression and Diablo300. With my Watt Puppy 8’s, the Gryphon gave me the most goosebumps; just sounded the most natural, “you’re there”, and the most dynamic ( macro and micro). It was incredibly close with the progression ... 
Basic question about power/watts
It's not necessarily about the power output, but rather the ability to delivery lots of current at a low impedance. Also, not all amps are created equal to 80W from a HT receiver is VERY different from 80W from a high end amp...   As mesh mentio...
