Scorpio S vs. Scorpio
The Scorpio has never been out of our program, but there were some small changes in year 2017.
The AKM DAC-chip (AK4397EQ) we used in the Scorpio was unfortunately discontinued.
The Scorpio S uses therefore a new AKM DAC-chip (AK4490EQ).
We do not offer an update from Scorpio to Scorpio S. We needed to add the “S” since the units aren’t 100% identical.
Dedication and Devotion
Gryphon Scorpio plays compact disc. Period. Full stop. It does not play video discs of any kind whatsoever, nor does it play any of the so-called “high resolution” audio formats long since given the cold shoulder by music lover, audiophile and mainstream consumer alike.
Gryphon Scorpio is designed unapologetically with single-minded dedication to the compact disc, because this focused approach enables Gryphon Audio Designs to devote all our resources and expertise to releasing the full, unfettered musical potential of CD playback.
Gryphon Scorpio will reveal more of the hidden treasures in your CD collection than any other player, “universal” or otherwise, up to and well beyond its price point. That is its sole mission.
