    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...

    Ella Fitzgerald -Sunshine of your Life - Horch House

    I had bought this title up from Volker at the Munich Show just gone. It was recorded in 1964 by Norman Granz. And in the liner notes Norman said, "when Ella heard it played back she thought it was the best 'live' recording of her ever done". There is big band accompanying Ella on tape 1...

    Cut off for music purchase-Are you an Audiophile or Musicphile?

    Hi to all the members, It was with such great delight, that I got to know about this site. As all of us have been on Agon, and I was severly disheartened when I kept following 'there is only one Oneobgyn's" threads and commentary which had come to a sudden stop. I don't wish to persevere...
