@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.
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...
Apologies for the delayed response, as I haven't been back on the forum since I last wrote the post.
Yes they are polite and welcome visitors.
If you are genuinely looking and show interests for purchase they will entertain your requests.
The name of the building is ETLand (one word...
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.
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...
After the Six Moons award nomination, Grimm have picked up another one.

The difference I find is that the Grimm FPGA card upsamples red book to 176.4Hz...
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...
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...
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...
Great story and journey Steve, and some lovely anecdotes with photos too. Reminds me of the one we did some 4 years back or so. As you said, this hobby does make you some life long friends.
