Gryphon Callisto 2200 Integrated Amplifier Upgrade
Let me start by saying that I had researched getting mods done on my DV60 and was already to ship the Esoteric to The Upgrade Company based on their tremendous customer reviews... but fate stepped in... My much loved Gryphon Callisto 2200 integrated amp developed a noise in the volume control...no one seemed to want to work on it but Dave said no problem, he went on to tell me he had worked on Gryphon's before with great success so, off it went to MI. A few weeks later I got it back... Dave said it would need to be run in for a while but I could not wait... so, I plugged it in and started to listen... immediate difference in upper register and sound stage ... but yes the bass was congested... so I left it on over the next week before I did any more serious listening...When I went back to check it out OMG what a difference, the bass was DA Bomb.. so tuneful and melodic... I could make out the attack and pitch no matter who low the frequency, even with syn. bass... I've never said this before but alas it (syn. bass) actually could be not only tuneful but musical as well. I also noted much cleaner transients as well as a large increase in sound stage depth. The amp which I had thought was about as good as it gets in pitch, flow, detail, sound staging, bass, and musicality took on a whole new dimension...to break this down further I have listed the changes that I noticed in my system since getting it back, in order of magnitude (greatest to least), but I do want to say that all of the changes were important and easily discernable:
- Bass ... oh so clean and sweet with no overhang.
- Detail ... if you like layers of sound here it is.
- Sound stage ... deeper to a great extent and somewhat wider.
- Mids and highs ... much less glare more music.
- Overall musicality ... greatly enhanced.
In conclusion, I liked working with Dave very much and got the feeling his is a labor of love...But as they say the proofs in the pudding... I am sending my esoteric DV60 to Dave to work his magic on (he says that this will make an even greater difference... ) can't wait to check out what this will do... and when that comes back I'm sending him my Blu Ray player so that I can attempt to reach video nirvana. I don't believe that I'm given to overstatement, the changes were really that significant.
Dave thanks for your great work!!!
