Gryphon Diablo 300

To Jeff Fritz,

I’ve been an avid follower of your reviews for years. Thanks for your insights, and thoughtful and informative reviews.

I’m writing to seek your opinion on a potential purchase I’m considering. I have an eye out for a Simaudio Moon 880M/850P pair matched to the new Magico M3 loudspeakers. So here is my question: Is this combo a good match if I’m looking for the most lifelike sound I can get in a relatively small 15’ x 16’ x 9’ room?

Thanks for your very kind consideration,

I can’t imagine the system you propose not sounding fantastic. I think the Magicos, with their three 7” woofers per side, are ideal for a small- to medium-sized room. The Simaudios are exceptionally transparent, while providing plenty of stable power to get the best out of the M3s. As long as you pay careful attention to the setup, which your dealer should of course provide, I think you’ll be in audiophile heaven. Good luck and let me know how it turns out. . . . Jeff Fritz
