Gryphon Audio Designs proudly announces the release of a whole new series of cables. It is the very top of the line from Gryphon and it is a new evolutionary step in Gryphon Cable Production. The Vanta Series will offer Speaker Cables, Interconnects, Power Cords and finally Digital Cables as well.
The Vanta Cables offers the ultimate solution in cable technology and performance. It is a benchmark and the most natural solution when connecting audio components. All Vanta Cables are terminated with carefully selected audio grade connectors from some of the leading manufactures in the world, such as Oyaide and Neutrik. The connectors are soldered to the Silver-Gold conductors under a microscope to make sure that all connections are soldered to perfection. Nothing is left to chance.
2020 not only marks the 35th Anniversary of Gryphon Audio Designs, but also 35 years of cable manufacturing at Gryphon Audio Designs. To judge by some cable manufacturers' "technical" explanations, you could be forgiven for thinking that cable differences are voodoo, black magic, or hallucinations. But the simple fact is that there are straightforward laws of physics that govern impedance, inductance, capacitance, and hysteresis and, through them, sonic performance. Gryphon Audio Designs have made it their mission to identify and control the practical construction parameters which define these crucial mechanisms.
As with all Gryphon products, there is no recognizable cable "house sound" that can be attributed to the brand. Neutrality, purity, and accuracy are the DNA of everything that carries the Gryphon logo. The extreme, high build quality of Gryphon cables ensures maximum mechanical stability, optimum electrical insulation, and minimum dielectric absorption. Conductors, PTFE insulation, bedding, and outer sheath form a tightly wrapped bundle virtually immune to self-induction and hysteresis. The extremely low noise and high resolution that is the Gryphon sonic trademark are in large part due to careful scrutiny of the electro-dynamics of field geometry. Fully shielded against RF interference and emission, unstressed conductors of the purest metals available are protected by multiple layers of insulation for uniform pressure on the conductors to effectively eliminate the "acoustic memory" of insulating materials, which in other cables causes smearing and degraded impulse response.
The crystalline purity of the unique, costly silver/gold alloy employed in all Gryphon conductors results in fewer crystal boundaries and eliminates distortion caused by amplitude-dependent signal transmission. Unlike more conventional cables that distort high frequencies due to crystal impurities in the conductor wire, Gryphon cables provide pure, open high frequencies and a natural, non-resonant tonal quality across the audio range. Materials purity and a sophisticated extrusion process contribute to the focused, clean, tight sound of Gryphon cables. With no intrinsic colorations and no bias in favor of specific frequency bands, Gryphon cables possess a unique level of tonal coherence from deep, detailed bass up through the rich, open midrange to the airy transparency of the highest frequencies.
