Gryphon Siren Phono Stage Preamplifier

**High Fidelity Reaches New Heights**

Introducing the Gryphon Siren Phono Stage Preamplifier, a pinnacle in analog audio performance. Crafted with an eye for excellence and designed for those who demand the ultimate in sound quality, the Siren sets a new standard for high-end audio systems.

**Unmatched Design and Build Quality**

The Siren shares its "Nordic Noir" aesthetic with Gryphon's acclaimed Apex Power Amplifier and Commander Preamplifier, boasting a sculptural beauty that complements its advanced technology. Its 4.3” TFT capacitive touch screen, protected by a 4mm hardened glass panel, provides intuitive control and a sleek, modern look. The dual-mono Power Supply Unit (PSU) is a powerhouse, weighing over 83 lbs (38 kg), and features local, fully regulated power supplies for all voltage amplifying stages, ensuring a deep black background for ultimate phono performance.

**State-of-the-Art Circuitry**

True to Gryphon's legacy, the Siren employs a fully discrete, fully balanced circuit topology. It utilizes four-layer printed circuit boards with 70µ copper traces, twice the thickness of competitive components, and is populated with premium-grade parts like Mundorf MCap ZN capacitors, Vishay low-inductance resistors, ROHM matched transistors, and ultra-low noise transistors from ZETEX. Sensitive audio circuitry is mounted on a proprietary isolation base with constrained layers of Kerrock, Bitumen, and steel to prevent detail smearing and optimize component damping.

**Exceptional Features for Superior Performance**

- True Dual Mono Configuration: Ensures channel separation and clarity.

- Zero Global Negative Feedback: Preserves signal integrity.

- Selectable Inputs: Includes three XLR and one RCA input for system flexibility.

- User-Selectable Load Impedance: Customize MC load impedance from the remote handset.

- Extremely Low Noise: Achieved through minimal internal wiring and high-quality PC-mount connectors.

**Advanced User Features**

Designed for ease of use, the Siren includes a remote handset for convenient operation of input selection and load impedance settings. The 12V Buss Links facilitate seamless system power-up and power-down, while a rear-panel USB 2.0 socket allows for simple firmware upgrades, ensuring your system remains up-to-date.

**Unparalleled Audio Experience**

Whether judged by sound quality, build quality, or user-friendliness, the Gryphon Siren Phono Stage Preamplifier represents the zenith of analog playback design. Its sophisticated engineering and meticulous construction deliver a listening experience that transcends ordinary high fidelity, making it an indispensable component for audiophiles seeking the best.
