    Grimm MU-1 server review - A new force in digital source?

    I had a 6 hour continuous session with the Grimm today and it was not fatiguing at all listening to digital content for that long. The flow and detail are quite astounding.

    Grimm MU-1 server review - A new force in digital source?

    V Very interesting about the Aqua LinQ streamer, which too has an FPGA card, and avoids a USB output. It has quite a few different proprietary outputs that probably match its own brand of DAC's, quite ideal. The difference I find is that the Grimm FPGA card upsamples red book to 176.4Hz...

    Grimm MU-1 server review - A new force in digital source?

    Fred, thanks for the link. In regards to what I considered, it would have been quite a few brands like Melco, Lumin, Antipodes and the Taiko. The Grimm did something more with passing the signal through it's FPGA card. Most of all it negated the need for having to get into tweaking by using...

    Hi Francisco, Yes there are certainly more Players in the Netherlands and global field. It’s that Phillips experience amongst them all that probably gives them the edge. The Grimm is quite new and comparisons to others would come down the line once it gets more opportunity to showcase itself...

    Highly recommend the Grimm MU-1. It's new, and would be right up there. You won't need switches and clocks either. Certainly has that closeness and flow of tape.

    The 7th AudioExotics Super Hiend Audio Gala in Hong Kong, 7-8 July 2018

    I have had the pleasure of attending the AE show a few years back (2016). What the team accomplishes in such a short set up time is astonishing from the playback I heard. The components are great and for those that can afford it kudos to them. Sure show conditions can be challenging and when...
