    I’d love to join - in CT. Surprised there isn’t more interest given some of the positive impressions.

    While this old wolf doesn’t have great hearing, I would like to compare the Diablo with my Gryphon. Rockford, Illinois

    I'm in the same boat. If it makes it to Canada I'm interested. I can't be first though, because customs hates me.

    Saw your profile post. I got it in my head that this was an portable amp only, but I see it's has iFi's ubiquitous burrbrown dac in it as well. I'll try it out.

    The iFi Gryphon drives full size headphones reasonably well. I use it with Beyer DT880 and ZMF Auteur. i’ll be curious to hear the differences between the Gryphon and Diablo with my own ears.
