Gryphon EOS 5: Three-way floorstanding speakers from Denmark

The Danish company Gryphon Audio Designs presented the new Gryphon EOS 5 compact speaker systems at the High – End Audio Show 2023 in Hong Kong . Building on the technologies developed for the EOS 2 model introduced earlier , the larger EOS 5 speakers extend the operating frequency range, which extends from 20 Hz to 40 kHz at a level of +/-2 dB.

All four drivers are designed specifically for the EOS 5. The high-frequency range is served by a 29 mm beryllium dome tweeter, which has been adapted for the EOS 5, which has a higher operating range than the EOS2. The mid-range is entrusted to a 6.5-inch speaker, and the bass is reproduced by a pair of 9.5-inch drivers with proprietary cones TPCD (Thin-Ply Carbon Fiber Diaphragm – thin-layer carbon fiber diaphragm), which first appeared in the EOS 2.

As in the EOS speakers 2, the cones are made by one of the world’s leading manufacturers of Formula 1 components. The nominal impedance of the Gryphon EOS 5 speakers is 4 ohms with a minimum of 2.9 ohms at a sensitivity of 90 dB.

The design of the Gryphon EOS 5 is similar to that of the EOS 2, with many facets reminiscent of a gem. On the inside, however, the proprietary Line-Dampened port system offers a unique solution for smoothing airflow in this larger case with higher bandwidth. Like the EOS 2, the new EOS 5 speakers feature two features that make it easy to install speakers in rooms with a wide range of acoustic conditions.

A three-position tweeter level switch, located on the switch panel on the back of the cabinet, provides 0dB, +2dB, or +3dB gain to optimize off-axis dispersion. And Gryphon’s custom-made, adjustable spikes feature removable, built-in dampers to ensure the speakers are most stable on carpeted or uncarpeted floors.

In addition to the three colors offered for EOS 2 – Soul Red Crystal, High Gloss Black and Stealth Gray – a new S-Mat Black variant has been added. The next-generation matte black finish, first used on the EOS 5, has a “self-healing” chemistry that allows the wearer to repair minor scuffs and scratches with a piece of baking parchment paper and a regular iron.
