Gryphon Diablo 300 with YG Hailey 2.2s?
Should work great - YG pairs well with warmish SS that can double down to 2ohms  
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
It's not just the vinyl rig cost and setup - it's the PITA to find good vinyl and the 000s to buy your first 100 titles. There aren't $1 vinyls at garage sales anymore. And the audiophile stuff is $40-$50 per record. Unless I had a record collecti... 
Best SS Amp - Pass Labs X350.8 vs. Luxman M900u vs. Ayre VX-R Twenty
I’ve owned all these amps except the Ayre, which I had the non-20 version on demo years ago. They are all quite different sonically. I like the Luxman quite a bit as its musical, transparent, with great texture- but its a top down amp so if bass i... 
Dynaudio Contour 30i or Sonus Faber Olympica II

Are there any other amps coming in? Wasn’t someone sending Benchmarks?  I offered my Ampzillas but didn’t read any takers.  
McIntosh Tube vs SS w/ Sonus Faber Aida II
I’ll take McIntosh over any dead sounding Soulution or Constellation. I have a friend who even prefers the 611s over Dagostino- don’t count Mac out.  
Equipment Report: Linear Tube Audio's New Ultralinear PLUS
@tvad which LTA amplifier did you prefer? I realize neither made you move on from your Audio Notes. I do wonder if being without output transformer limits the monoblock value. although Atmasphere and Joule always used monos.
