Gryphon Sonett - Phono Stage
The Sonett MM/MC Phonostage is a perfect companion for the Gryphon integrated amplifiers if an outboard vinyl solution is desired.
The Gryphon Sonett is a fully discrete, DC coupled design employing exclusive polypropylene capacitors for precision RIAA correction.
Rear panel switches offer multiple options for selection of the desired MC load (10, 20, 80.6, 100, 200 or 402 Ω). Multiple load options can be combined in parallel for even more options. For instance, 80.6 Ω can be activated together with 100 Ω to achieve a load of 45 Ω.
Gryphon Sonett employs only the finest components, including Wima polypropylene capacitors and polymer coupling capacitors, Schottky barrier diodes with low Von voltage. Separate Talema toroidal power transformers for each channel ensure minimal magnetic radiation. Low-noise linear series regulators deliver a total of 22,400µF per channel.
The transformers are mounted behind the front panel as far away as possible from the phonostage circuit to effectively isolate it from transformer radiation. The internal power wiring from the rear IEC socket to the power switch is mounted in a shielded channel to minimize risk of 50/60 Hz interference.
The Gryphon Sonett Phonostage and will provide a significant upgrade for any system assembled to extract the very best from black vinyl grooves to enlighten the lives of dedicated music lovers for years to come.
