It was Danish Flemming E. Rasmussen's dream to reproduce the purest essence of the live music experience in the comfort of one's own four walls. He founded Gryphon Audio Design in 1985 as an offshoot of his marketing company 2R Marketing. The Danes' first product was an absolute surprise hit: the Gryphon Head Amp emerged from a one-off hobby project that was originally only developed for the designers' own home systems.
A respected Japanese retailer showed interest in the product at a trade show in Chicago and the rest is history. As a result, Gryphon Audio Design officially became known as a separate company. Gryphon Audio Designs gained instant and enduring global recognition for the state-of-the-art performance, intuitive ergonomics and stunning beauty of Gryphon preamps and power amplifiers. Rasmussen's background in fine arts and industrial design gives each Gryphon product a distinctive, luxurious finish that flows organically from the design of the audio circuitry and user interface, allowing for a truly unique integration of form and function.
