Detaljer

Never tempted by shortcuts or compromise of any kind, Gryphon Audio Designs has consistently pursued new levels of realism in music reproduction for nearly a quarter of a century. Through the years, the Gryphon name has come to stand for the world’s most revealing High End components with peerless finish and build quality to inspire lasting pride of ownership.

Now, the most comprehensive and intensive research and development project in the history of the Gryphon brand culminates in the launch of the Gryphon Colosseum Solo single-channel power amplifier. Building on the success and acclaim accorded the two-channel Colosseum, the monoblock Colosseum Solo exudes strength, painstaking attention to even the minutest details, uncompromising stability under virtually any operating conditions and exceptional transient response, phase response and current capability. Armed with enormous current reserves, it will never be caught off guard by the complex impedance loads of even the most demanding loudspeaker.

While monoblock power amplifiers are by no means rare in the uppermost echelons of High End audio, few - if any - are executed as conscientiously and uncompromisingly as the Gryphon Colosseum Solo. More than 90% of all other mono amplifiers have been “designed” easily and speedily, simply by bridging the two channels of an existing stereo model.

Unfortunately, while bridging increases nominal output power, other critical parameters, such as distortion and damping factor, take a major hit. Most crucially, bridging doubles output impedance, thereby reducing current capability by a substantial 50%. By implementing parallel-coupling in the Gryphon Colosseum Solo instead of bridging, distortion is cut in half, damping factor is doubled and output impedance is cut in half, doubling current capability and enabling absolute control of loudspeaker loads as low as 1 Ohm.

The implementation of two physically independent audio channels on separate chassis effectively eliminates any interaction or interference between the two channels for infinite channel separation and the rock-solid holographic imaging that has become a Gryphon hallmark.

As a practical and stylish side effect, monoblock configuration and vertical orientation of the Gryphon Colosseum Solo invites the owner to place each amplifier in the immediate vicinity of its loudspeaker.

The slim, majestic high-rise tower of the Colosseum Solo occupies minimal floor space. With end plates machined from solid blocks of 40 mm black polyvinylmethacrylate and smart, curved side panels of your choice, the Colosseum Solo is a strikingly handsome minimalist sculpture that will enhance any space.

Any attempt to describe or analyze the audible characteristics of the Colosseum Solo is simply doomed to failure. As should be the case at this exalted level of ambition and engineering skill, it possesses no discernible sonic signature or identity of its own. Consider it a doorway that opens wide into the original recorded space, revealing performers in a supremely natural re-creation of three-dimensional reality that will take your breath away.

The Gryphon Colosseum

A Personal Design Statement
In selecting a finish for your Colosseum Solo, the possibilities are limited solely by your imagination. Because the side panels are based on an innovative modular construction, your dealer can remove and replace them in a simple operation. With Gryphon, your choice of finish is no longer a lifetime commitment.
This exclusive Gryphon service gives the proud Colosseum Solo owner access to virtually unlimited custom finish options not only at the time of original purchase, but also at any time after that and as often as you desire.

Whenever you re-decorate or move, you can have your Gryphon Colosseum re-dressed and updated to always keep pace with your evolving personal style and interior decor.

This exclusive service and extraordinary level of flexibility was pioneered by Gryphon for our Atlantis, Trident and Poseidon loudspeaker systems and remains unique in home audio. Now, the design of your Gryphon system can be an ongoing adventure of exploration and invention.

The Gryphon Colosseum

Keeping It Real
Despite its timeless beauty and imposing presence, in actual use, the Gryphon Colosseum Solo is essentially invisible, an utterly transparent conduit that lays bare every aspect of the recording, the location and, most crucially, the musical performance itself. The Colosseum Solo reproduces all the subtlest timbral shadings, the beauty of music in three dimensions and a rock-solid rendering of the soundstage. In addition to its exceptional dynamic capabilities, there is a striking absence of "grain" in the extreme high frequencies, which remain liquid and coherent.

The integration of the highs and the upper midrange is ideal with a seamless continuity of tonal structure when different timbres mingle above 5 kHz.

The amplifier's silky-smooth nature allows the listener access to a previously concealed universe of micro-details that bring the performance to life. Extreme deep bass is rendered with such power that the amplifier delineates and illuminates every corner of the recording space.

Rarefied levels of transient speed and dynamic headroom ensure that the Gryphon Colosseum Solo will never lose its firm grip on musical events even in the presence of the most extreme transient peaks. Control, fluidity, clarity and an effortless naturalness mark the Colosseum Solo as a breed apart. It stands unconditionally in the first rank for its faithful translation of the soul-stirring language of music.

For protection in transit, the Gryphon Colosseum Solo is shipped in a specially built wooden flight case with metal fittings.
