This is basically all you’d need to drive an LCD-X.
Sounds just as good if not better than iFI DSD Signature at $750, and it is more portable and
has Bluetooth if you care about that.
Full of useful features including the iFi XBass and XSpace analog EQ type adjustments. Sound quality is very good but not quite at the level of their Signature Zen Can/DAC combo. The Gryphon can do more though.
An excellent piece of audio gear! I’m having all kind of fun listening to music.
Really happy with the device but, I noticed that their display glass easily scratches if you happen to put this in a pocket with your keys. Pains me quite a bit to see a $600 device with a scratch so quickly, given it's the most likely use case to listen on the go.
This DAC/Amp has everything you would expect from a portable device in 2022 as far as connections, codecs, supported formats, and build quality. What is totally unexpected is how it makes you feel. The Gryphon just brings joy back to your music. You just want to keep listening. I also found it was very friendly to a wide verity of headphones and earphones. In todays environment finding and being taken back in time by a song for even just a few minutes is priceless. So I highly recommend you pick up your own time machine and travel back to a time a little less complicated.
