PS2-S MM/MC Phono Module
Gryphon Audio Designs has consistently offered unwavering support to the LP format with high performance MC/MM phonostages as separate products or as optional modules for installation in preamplifiers and integrated amplifiers at all price points across our product range.
Based on the Legato Legacy phonostage, the Gryphon PS2-S MM/MC Phono Module is a true dual-mono design for enhanced channel separation, capable of extracting every musical detail for ultimate realism.
Nearly 40 years after the introduction of the compact disc, the LP still represents the largest selection of recorded music on any storage medium in human history. Therefore, we believe it is essential that Gryphon owners have full access to the artistic vision captured for all time by this true high-resolution format.
The Gryphon Essence preamplifier can be ordered with the PS2-S Phono Module factory-installed. The module can also be added later at a time of your choosing.
If the module slot in your Gryphon Essence preamplifier is already occupied by the Gryphon ZENA DAC Module, then the stand-alone Sonett Phonostage is recommended as a substantial upgrade for any system assembled to extract the very best from black vinyl grooves.
Style and performance
The peerless finish, build quality, ergonomics and pride of ownership that contribute to the totality of the Gryphon concept can only be fully understood and appreciated up close and in person. The distinctive, luxuriant finish of every Gryphon product arises organically out of the audio circuit design and the user interface for a truly unique integration of form and function.
The exemplary build quality combines brushed, anodised aluminium with subtle black acrylic details for a highly refined aesthetic sensibility.
From the very beginning, every Gryphon product has offered stunning audio performance, sumptuous styling and superb user- friendliness, catering to the needs of the discerning audiophile who demands musicality, convenience and aesthetics, all without compromise.
Essence bass performance is simply superb: firm, well-defined, with massive attack, in a pure demonstration of power.
The wealth of detail and fine handling of bass and high frequencies contribute to the preamplifier’s ability to render the width and depth of a soundstage with three-dimensional realism and instrumental placement with great precision and realistic size.
