    Introduction of my new Antipodes K50 Music Server

    @shakti, completely agree with your thinking. There is one already started earlier. @matthias I am not as frequent a visitor to the forum, but happy to take this topic onto the grimm thread started way earlier. Thanks for your understanding.

    Introduction of my new Antipodes K50 Music Server

    David, I look forward to your feedback between the Grimm and the Antipodes. The Grimm which I chose (last year in December '19), the K50 was not out then and an A/B with the previous Antipodes combo put the Grimm MU-1 far ahead. The MU-1 had the ability to take all red book and upsample it to...

    A Saturday afternoon in an audiophile heaven in Hong Kong

    A Saturday afternoon in an audiophile heaven in Hong Kong

    Having been around to Adelphi and Mongkok, I found Seoul right up there and may be the best in what they offered. There is one building which houses most of the used and new dealers. The vintage gear also was terrific.

    High-end Speakers V Headphone - you kidding me....

    I have the Raal Headphones with their matching amplifier and am quite impressed as they have a transparency that pure ribbons do. And this goes all the way into the bass frequency too. They are still headphones and have that sound a wee bit forward of your face, but nowhere like what speakers...

    What is it with the Dutch and high end servers?

    After the Six Moons award nomination, Grimm have picked up another one. http://www.the-ear.net/review-hardware/grimm-audio-mu1-digital-hub-network-streamer-server?fbclid=IwAR3we64_DMqbEO7IsYiNVvVA44Fca9hwwo67OC4CgBSwTZSCtgVVryDaGk4

    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...

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

    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...

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

    6Moons review of Grimm MU-1 by M&H I have waited a long time to get the right server. I think I have found one that serves the purpose especially for streaming Tidal and Qobuz. Though this is not a cheap unit, it certainly needs to be compared in listening to the higher brands out there like...

    Best streamer for Qobuz ?

    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.
