Gryphon Mikado Signature

Condition: used in Excellent Condition

Top End CD player from Gryphon with 32-bit/192 kHz upsampling of the digital signal also results in extremely accurate handling of the crucial 16th bit, which represents the recorded music signal, preserving linearity for vastly improved THD+N performance. The fully discrete, fully balanced analog circuits are pure Class A with zero negative feedback. The analog section is supplied with +20 Volts and careful attention has been paid to power supplies with separate transformers and comprehensive regulation. Naturally, the signal path is as short as possible and the balanced analog outputs are the finest Neutrik, while the custom- made single-ended connectors are gold-plated.

Distinctive modular design, Gryphon Mikado Signature is built to keep pace with digital technology as it evolves. Convenient modification of digital or analog circuits by your local authorized Gryphon service center as upgrades become available will ensure that your Mikado Signature remains on the cutting edge of CD playback. The Gryphon Mikado Signature reveals subtle nuances, minute musical surprises that will add a new dimension to your listening pleasure. It is an elite component that combines elegant styling with stunning musicality and future- proof technology.
