Gryphon Pantheon Loudspeaker System
'While it would be arrogant to refer to The Gryphon Pantheon as a “compact” loudspeaker, it is, despite its imposing, stylish presence, the slimmest floor-standing model in the exclusive, luxurious Gryphon Audio Designs loudspeaker range.'
Drawing heavily on proprietary, innovative technologies and customised parts developed for and introduced in the Gryphon Pendragon and Trident II loudspeakers, the Pantheon lives up to the same exceptional standards of musicality, build quality and stylish design for an enhanced musical experience with soul and vitality.
Gryphon Pantheon is housed in a sleek, tall, massively braced enclosure with precisely contoured modular baffle and driver surrounds and baffle covering carefully selected and applied to effectively address baffle reflections and eliminate diffraction phenomena.
In keeping with every Gryphon loudspeaker before it, the Gryphon Pantheon incorporates specially developed constant phase technologies to ensure that all drivers are in phase at all frequencies at all times, eliminating deleterious slurring in the temporal domain, allowing the Gryphon Pantheon to re-create the original acoustic event with holographic realism and ultimate resolution.
High Frequency Energy and Clarity
Like all Gryphon loudspeakers, the high-frequency range in the Gryphon Pantheon is handled by an extraordinary Air Motion Transformer (AMT) drive unit that moves air by driving an extremely low-mass folded metal sheet in a semi-perpendicular motion via a powerful magnetic field for instantaneous response to the audio signal.
Exclusive Danish Triple-Magnet Drive
The cone drivers are custom designed for low Q and minimal dynamic compression to our exacting specifications by an internationally respected Danish driver manufacturer.
The dual 8” bass drivers have been specially developed and mounted in a precision-tuned reflex chamber to achieve levels of bass extension and power rare in any loudspeaker, regardless of size and cost. The triple-magnet motor system ensures maximum force and focus.
To achieve the ambitious objective of perfect phase at all frequencies and realize a truly seamless integration of the selected drive units, a fourth order filter network is utilised based exclusively on the finest components (Duelund, Jensen, Holm, Mundorf) in a layout carefully calculated to eliminate electromagnetic interaction and fitted to a decoupling platform to prevent vibration.
The crossover network is pre-biased by a 28 V battery for constant charge to the electrolytic capacitors in the impedance correction in order to eliminate crossover distortion at zero electric potential, resulting in audibly enhanced stability and substantial gains in body, timbral colour and image coherence. Operating the battery-biased crossover in “Class A” mode ensures a smoother, more richly detailed three-dimensional presentation.
The exterior design is distinctively Gryphon with a wide range of custom finish options and the opportunity to personalise your Gryphon Pantheon in the real-wood finish of your choice. In selecting a finish for your Gryphon Pantheon loudspeakers, the possibilities are limited solely by your imagination. Because the side panels are based on a modular construction that makes removing and replacing them child’s play, your choice is no longer a one-time only, lifetime proposition.
