Gryphon Diablo 300

To Jeff Fritz,

Thanks for your great review of the Auralic Vega G2 DAC. I have had one in my system for a year and am in firm agreement with your observations.

I did take the plunge and added the Leo GX clock. I wanted to demo the unit and see if there was any noticeable difference. I don’t want to disappoint you, but the improvement is just night and day -- as great as the G2 was over the Comet that I used previously, [this is an even greater improvement].

I don’t really understand why, but there is even more clarity and air around instruments, yet the musicality is front and center. Too often I have auditioned equipment that is claimed to be revealing, only to hear that etched, clinical presentation that drives me from the music.

The Leo GX is a revelation and worth an audition. You have to change the interior clock cable in the Vega G2 to use the Leo, but otherwise, it just fits in.
