Gryphon Diablo 300 vs Vitus RI-101
Before I tried the Vitus and Gryphon, my friend and I tried the Boulder 866 with DAC also at home with same partnering equipment. Well, Boulder is what Boulder is known for; quick, clean, clear, dynamic, drive... However I felt that harmonics were... 
Gryphon Diablo 300 vs Vitus RI-101
Hi georgesallit325Yes, it was the RI-101 Mk2 in the comparison. Great amp!!!The shootout came about because a close buddy wanted to buy an integrated amp for his Magico S-series speakers. He has since bought the Vitus. I am happy for him! 
Gryphon Diablo 300 vs Vitus RI-101
I agree with eziggy above in general. Vitus RI-101 vs Gryphon Diablo 300; I just did a shoot out of both, in a domestic environment.  Only the amp was the variable, all other factors remained constant in the system.If you like the Gryphon darkish,...

Cartridges: Kuzma CAR or Lyra on a 4-Point (11") arm
Thanks to everyone for helping me to clarify my own thoughts. At this stage, I will most probably continue heading down the Kuzma path than toward the Lyra path. However, saying that, I would like to check out the Dynavector too...I have heard Ben... 
Cartridges: Kuzma CAR or Lyra on a 4-Point (11") arm
@rossb I found the Lyra nice but a bit too lean slightly soft. Other Lyras such as the Delos or Kleos are more dynamic but even leaner.I understand this because I felt so, too. The CAR 40 was good but a little dull.That's why I wonder if moving u...

Hi dover,I will be looking forward to your CAR-50 comments! ;-)Hi rossb,That's an interesting choice. What is it that you prefer the Dynavector?  Just to get a rough idea.Thanks
