Considering Gryphon Diablo 300 "OR" Simaudio 700iv2 ???
He posted back in March on another thread that he’d ordered the Gryphon.  Fortunately for him he now not only doesn’t have to read ads about other brands he never asked about, but his wise choice was confirmed by Humberto, George and Mike, LOL 
Why are there so many PS Audio BHK-mono or stereo amps for sale? What Gives?
Presently there are 11 Pass Labs amps for sale, and 8 BHKs.  Gobble gobble! 
How far have ss amps really come in the last twenty years?
jafox, try getting in touch directly with Klaus Bunge of Odyssey and ask him to keep his eyes open for SL amps for you.  He sold my Kraft 250s to me, after he'd imported them for someone else who only kept them for maybe a month, at a huge discoun... 
Class A Solid State Sound
"The gryphon ss amps asound more like symphonic line amps or boulder amps."That's interesting, I have Symphonic Line Kraft 250 monos and have wondered how Gryphon would compare to them. 
Revel Ultima Salon 2
When I auditioned both the Signature 8s and Salon 2s back in 2011, the Salon 2s were far better (I actually preferred the significantly cheaper Legacy Classics to the Sig 8s, which I thought were way too hot up top).  I ended up getting the Salon ... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
I’ve had Salon 2s for over 7 years in a very "live" sunroom that doesn’t make for great bass (have been told by several that electrostatics would be good in here, but don’t want something with both a tall and wide profile blocking my view). Powere... 
Tube Rolling for Pre-amps?
"I’ve had good luck on E-Bay, but I’ve heard horror stories also."Horror story for me - got curious to try something new after listening to Mullard 2492s. So bought some Amperex Bugle Boys on ebay that fried my pre’s power supply as soon as I powe... 
What are the weak points of Pass amps and pre-amps ?
You can’t spell “Tru-Fi” without “fruit.”  Coincidence?  I think not.Obligatory relevant thread comment: Pass makes some really good stuff.   
Bryston 4B3 vs Mac MC462 vs Pass Labs X250.8, OR... GRYPHON Diablo 300?
I get your concerns over repairs and the dealer’s response, but I am in a similar boat with my Symphonic Line electronics from Germany. This fall I had an output board fry in the CDP/DAC (ooo-oooh that smell, can’t you smell that smell?). The solu... 
Paradigm Persona series
I really wish bo1972 would find this thread. Then we could have a steel cage death match between Tru-Fi and Persona. 
Curious what people think is the best "value" high end speaker (~5K to 15K)
Folks, it will go away if you don't respond to it.DFTT (Don't Feed The Troll) 
Symphonic Line - No longer in business?
Still in business - I’ve been in touch recently with their U.S. representative Klaus Bunge to straighten out an issue with my Symphonic Line CD Player. Seems Rolf Gemain just hasn’t gotten around to updating the company website. 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
"May I suggest you look into the Symphonic Line Kraft amplifiers.  I know I know, everyone is telling you try this or that, it could be your last.  But the big SL amp(s) might truly do it for you."I have the SL Kraft 250 monos and they are incredi... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
"You know, the focal sopra 3 reminds me so much of the revel salon 2. It is incredible how much it brings back memories of those speakers."Salon 2s returning to WCSS system for the third time in 3...2...1... LOL
