great photos, as always, Wizard. Thanks for posting. Seems I have seen Kharma and Gryphon a few times now in SOTA systems.

Nice, i have heard the exquisite midi (with new driver) already together with the big kharma sub and all kharma amplification .
Was the sub their 18 incher model , how big is it in the flesh . Outlandish or manageable ?

Cant remember it was a huge driver in a big box , I would say rather on the big side :D, they have two subs , exquisite sub and exquisite midi sub ,as it was playing with the midi I assume it was the midi sub with a 15 incher .
Integration was just so so , but I am not a sublover anyway


yes it was the midi sub , seeing the pics again I d say outlandish ,the kharma electronics are also nice by the way here is the link

Wow!! What was the decision...Gryphon Mephistos or Dartzeel 458 monos? I think I see both preamps as well? Gryphon Pandora and presumably Dart 18? CH Precision digital?

i can only presume that if he went the dart 458 route with dart pre that he has the new dart pre on order.:)

from my 4 years with my Kharma Exquisites i'm sure that the dart 458 is a killer match for them.

Thanks Mike...I remember that system of yours...makes sense.

Interestingly, I see this person has yet another set of SRA amp stands which are not being used right up front...wonder what those are for? Sounds like a serious shoot-out...
