iFi XDSD Gryphon 

Discover Fantastic Beasts with the xDSD Gryphon, a portable DAC/amp that defies compromises. Unlike others in its class, the Gryphon excels in both digital and analog realms, boasting a Ultra-Res digital stage with the Burr-Brown MultiBit core and a PureWave analog power section capable of delivering 1,000mW. To rein in this mythical beast, serious headphones are required.

In terms of connectivity, the xDSD Gryphon is well-equipped with separate Bluetooth, DAC, and amp stages, each optimized for peak performance. Its wireless capabilities, featuring the latest QCC 5100 series Bluetooth v5.1, support a range of formats, including aptX Adaptive, LDAC, and more. Wired connections are equally impressive, handling PCM, DSD, DXD, and MQA formats through USB and S/PDIF.

The PureWave amplification circuitry, with 1,000mW at 32 Ohms and a max 6.7v output, ensures compatibility with high-impedance headphones. The 4.4mm Pentaconn provides balanced playback, the 3.5mm S-Balanced caters to SE headphones, and iEMatch eliminates hiss for high-sensitivity IEMs.

Tailor your audio experience with features like XSpace for a spacious soundstage, XBass II for bass enhancement, and iEMatch to reduce hiss. Choose from three digital filters (Bit-Perfect, Standard, GTO) for personalized sound. The OLED display and CyberSync operating system enhance user enjoyment, providing essential information without introducing noise.

Transitioning to headphones, the Meze 99 Classics stand out with their perfect natural sound, walnut wood earcups, and spring steel headband. The unique wood grain ensures each pair is one of a kind. Crafted with precision and attention to detail, these headphones deliver premium sound designed for audio enthusiasts.

Meze 99 Classic Headphone

Meze's commitment to quality is evident in their choice of walnut wood, a 45-day production process, and fully serviceable components. The 99 Classics prioritize comfort with an even-pressure headband and sound isolation through medium density memory foam earpads. The design features no glue, only nuts and bolts, with CNC-carved wood ear cups and cast zinc hardware.

Included in the box are essentials like a hard EVA carrying pouch, 1.2m and 3m Kevlar OFC cables with mic and remote, a 6.3mm gold-plated jack adapter, an airplane jack adapter, and a cable pouch. Weighing 260g, the 99 Classics are a blend of sophistication and functionality, providing a unique audio experience with lasting durability.
