With 43 precise steps in 2 dB increments, every nuance of your music is faithfully reproduced without compromise. The fully balanced signal path ensures pristine audio fidelity, eliminating signal conversion for unparalleled sound quality.

Innovative Features for Seamless Integration

The Zena boasts an expanded AV throughput function, allowing seamless integration into your multi-channel setup without sacrificing stereo performance. Advanced components like Wima polypropylene capacitors and Schottky barrier diodes enhance power supply stability, delivering consistent and distortion-free sound.

Elevated User Experience

Designed for the modern audiophile, the Zena offers a range of customizable menu options via a sleek graphical touch-sensitive panel. From input naming to display brightness control, every aspect is tailored to your preferences. The optional PCM/DSD DAC module and MM/MC phonostage module further expand its versatility, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of audio sources.

Green Bias Technology

With Gryphon's innovative Green Bias technology, the Zena intelligently adjusts amplifier bias for optimal Class A power output based on your listening preferences. This not only enhances energy efficiency but also ensures peak performance during critical listening sessions.
