A friend of mine has the same speakers as I do an he is using the 2300/452 combo and loves it. And I love my Diablo. I would say that the Gryphon could be the right choice if you want something that has a tighter and more agile sound than the Mac-set up. They are both very musical but to me Diablo delivers more speed and pace. Not to mention the grip it has on the membranes of the speakers. In my room it made me forget that I ever had a bass problem. It is no longer present. So the Dane is doing something with my Sonus Faber Amati, that my previous Jeff Rowland Contiuum S2 with 800 W couldn't.

I would love to do a direct a to b comparison in the same room, at the same time on the same speakers with a Devialet 440 against this to see what happens.

At this level of equipment, my experience says it all comes down to taste. A Devialet could be the perfect choice if you like the way it interacts with your equipment, room and music taste. But IMO, it will bring a very different signature to the experience compared to the Mac or Gryphon.

That is definitely a legitimate approach for many people, and I'm sure they are all really good units. However, on the very best minimally miked recordings, one of the units will be superior to the others in terms of information retrieval, resolution and ability to hear all the spatial cues of the original recording venue. If that holds true, then that unit would be "superior" to the others. That is the comparison I would like to see.

Information retrieval, resolution and ability to hear all the spatial cues are all great categories that many of us want our set up to ace.
But thats only part of the "puzzle". IMHO it don't automatically make ME fall in love with the music that reaches my ear. And to me that is the only thing that matters.

Of the three machines we are talking about here, to me the Devialet is the most detailed and could come across as slightly analytical in some set ups. The Mac is on the other side of the spectrum and the Gryphon somewhere in between.
