GRYPHON EOS 2

Gryphon lanserer snart oppfølgeren til EOS!

One of Gryphon’s historic strengths has been our “Systems approach” to HiFi: by designing every component in the
playback chain, we’re able to achieve a level of system synergy that would otherwise not be possible. Recently, we’ve
introduced breakthrough amplifier technology—first with Essence and then with Apex—then redefined preamplifier
performance with Commander. Gryphon’s Vanta cabling likewise represented a dramatic step forward in metallurgy while
our StandArt equipment racks brought audio furniture to a new level of both sonics and aesthetics. Now, we’re proud to
introduce EOS 2: a new standard in compact loudspeaker design.
Gryphon’s new EOS-series is the brainchild of Benno Meldgaard, Gryphon’s Chief Loudspeaker Designer. Former Head of
Design for Gamut, Benno is one of High-End Audio’s great young talents and his work for EOS delivers innovative solutions

to achieving big speaker sound in small rooms. First among these is EOS’ unique “Stealth” enclosure, whose purpose-
engineered front baffle enables the drivers to yield smooth dispersion and uniform energy output, as well as a more stable

and dimensional soundstage.
EOS’ Stealth exterior has been sculpted to function as an efficient diffusor of standing waves—a great advantage in small
spaces—while the interior has been critically shaped to eliminate standing waves and cabinet resonances. Gryphon’s
proprietary “Line porting” technology, a new way of directing the back wave of the mid-woofer towards the ports, ensures a
perfect path for the low frequencies to exit the enclosure while providing efficient damping of frequencies above the 60-80
Hz region. The result is shockingly fast and clean bass reproduction, free of distracting upper-frequency artifacts. Benno’s
mandate to maximize room compatibility and placement flexibility yielded two additional design flourishes: EOS can be
either front- or rear-ported by means of removable port plugs, while a three-position phase switch ensures ideal response
at the listening position. Taken together, these two features enable unmatched versatility in speaker placement.
Although EOS 2 is Gryphon’s most accessible loudspeaker, it offers uncompromising parts and build quality. Our proprietary
woofer features a Thin-ply Carbon Fiber cone manufactured to our specifications by the world’s leading fabricator of Formula
1 components. EOS’ tweeter—also proprietary—uses a large (34mm) Beryllium dome and resonance-free rear enclosure
for enhanced dynamics and low-end response. Hand-assembled from the finest components, our PCS (Progressive Curved
Slope) crossover maximizes power handling and ensures a seamless transition between drivers. Featuring 91 dB efficiency
and 4 Ohm minimum impedance, EOS 2 presents an easy load for virtually all high-quality power amplifiers.

 

Evocative of Gryphon’s State-of-the-Art Kodo and Trident II loudspeakers, EOS’ handsome, stringed front grille combines
beauty and protection with acoustic transparency. As Gryphon’s new entry-level loudspeaker, EOS 2 not only revolutionizes
affordable performance but makes it possible to assemble a world-class music system at a price that was previously
impossible. Combine EOS 2 with a Diablo Integrated Amplifier and Rosso cabling for a system whose.
