The printed magazine Hifi Review from Hongkong has offered a ‘product of the year 2018’ award to two Grimm Audio products! Both the CC1mk2 and LS1be & LS1s-DMF won in their own category. We feel highly honoured by this recognition of our products’ quality.

 

Some excerpts from the jury report:

LS1be product of the year 2018

Liu Zhigang wrote about the CC1: “It’s my luck, I’m reviewing the best digital clock in the world. The only important thing about a digital master clock is stability. The Grimm CC1 MKII has the world's most accurate master clock (…) with science fiction-like technical specification! (…)"

"Chen Weichang entered our large listening room, took his chair on the east side and started to play some of his favorite music. When he played the Vagabond track, he muttered to himself: "I never noticed this immersion in the low frequency." (…) He kept repeating "I never noticed" for almost every disc. We listened to the Pepe Romero and Maria Magdalena Flamenco album on Philips Classics. Pepe uses a pair of hands (and a guitar) and Maria uses a pair of feet (and a stage floor). Pepe plays hot and dexterous, and Maria’s power is expressed with her feet. In the original setup, when Maria hit the floor strongly the echoes of the near and far walls were sometimes faint. After adding the CC1 MKII, the realism of the church sound was beyond one’s grasp. A system with such good analytical power brings you very close to reality."

"For us audiophiles, the price of Grimm's CC1 MKII (developed for the professional audio market) can be regarded a bargain. There is a saying: after using the excellent Grimm Audio CC1 MKII master clock, there is no turning back.”

 

LS1be product of the year 2018

Chen Weichang wrote about the LS1be with LS1s-DMF: “The electronic bass sounds as low as 20Hz, the power of a church organ, the texture of a double bass, the contour and firmness of a bass drum, the slap of an electric bass guitar: the LS1s-dmf subwoofers produce them without effort. At the same time, the personality, character, size, weight, presence (with an acoustic instrument) or non-presence (with synthetic instruments), etc. of all these instruments are conveyed in the most natural way. Bass tones from the DMF sub don’t affect the clarity of other frequency bands, nor disappear at lower or higher volumes. The performance of these speakers is very linear. (…)"

"Hi-Fi means High Fidelity. Some brands call their products "high-fidelity" but offer low quality on most tracks. Other brands have chosen to enlarge everything, good recordings shine even more, bad recordings are even more ugly. The Grimm Audio LS1be+LS1s-dmf on the other hand does not place such a microscope on the two extremes. Good is not better, bad is not worse, everything is balanced and in the right proportion, without emphasis on certain subjects or details. The pursuit clearly was not just to be linear, but also truthful.”

 

The Taiwan magazine “My Hi-End” did a review of the CC1 and was heavily impressed. Please enjoy some translated fragments from the text by reviewer Leo Yeh: 

 

“I first used the CC1 as the main clock for an Esoteric K-03X. The high-precision VCXO voltage-controlled crystal oscillator (0.5 ppm) is set to master mode. Immediately after I turned the system on I already had the feeling that the sound has improved. After 20 minutes of warming up, the sound performance is like reborn. I am most impressed by the texture and density of the sound. The background noise is greatly reduced and the stereo image is more distinct. When I changed back to the internal clock of the CD transport, the quality was loose and blurred in comparison.” 

 

“In conclusion, if a CC1 fits in your system, there is only one reason to not buy it, and that is that the children in your pocket have not saved enough... The thousand words of this review cannot do justice to the personal experience. It is strongly recommended that interested readers contact a Grimm Audio dealer. But watch out: this is an addictive device that is poisonous and will poison everyone who listens to it!”

On January 31st the first MU1 music player is introduced to customers, the press and our dealers and friends in the auditorium of the Van Abbe museum of modern art in Eindhoven. Our team has achieved an outstanding performance to reach this mile stone, and we are extremely proud to present this news to you. At the introduction there will be a unique concert by cellist Maya Fridman and harpist Majsa Koperberg, who were model for the extraordinary picture series of our ‘Magic’ campaign. The video registration of this performance will soon be available. Please enjoy the new web page of the MU1. The first series is already sold out, stock is expected from late spring.

The Hong Kong online magazine Fever Sound did a video interview with Eelco Grimm during the HKAV2018 show in Hong Kong in August. Eelco introduces several of Grimm Audio's products and talks about a few of the aspects that set them apart from the competition. Enjoy!

Hifi.nl reviews LS1a2018, September 6

Major Dutch online hifi magazine hifi.nl just published the LS1a review that journalist Jan de Jeu did for printed magazine Music Emotion. He wrote: “The Grimm Audio LS1a is an active speaker system that performs to the highest standards. And not just technically, but also in its musicality and sense of realism. For this money, I cannot assemble a system of separate components that performs at the same level.”

Grimm Audio has signed a sponsor contract with Minco Eggersman and Theodoor Borger for their ‘UNIFONY’ project. Grimm Audio believes that the chain of equipment and media between the music producers and consumers should become transparent, so that the listener can enjoy music like it was sonically intended. To share their dedication to music, Grimm Audio decided to present selected music projects to their audience, and let the general audience learn about Grimm Audio and their goal. With ‘UNIFONY’ Grimm Audio lays the first stone of this project, and it is a very special one.

 

Minco Eggersman is artist and composer of movie sound tracks as well as solo albums, Theodoor Borger is musician and sound engineer (relying on Grimm Audio equipment for much of their work). When they decided to create this special series featuring famous and befriended musicians, the ball started rolling. Norwegian trumpet player Mathias Eick, well known for his ECM albums, agreed to join this special project that is about creating new music based on sounds rather than notes. After the recordings were finished, Phill Brown (of Talk Talk fame - and many more) was so inspired that he could not resist to return to the studio and do one more album mix. That helped to convince famous mastering engineer Bob Ludwig to do the mastering. And to wrap it all up, graphical designer James Marsh (again Talk Talk) made some beautiful artwork. This whole project breathes dedication to the art of music and attention to details. It is perfectly suited to demonstrate Grimm Audio’s intentions. On October 12th, the first UNIFONY album will have its release, the second track ’Hunt’ just saw its pre-release, after ‘Ascend’ last spring.

Hong Kong Hi-End audio magazine Hifi Review published a grand review of the LS1be plus DMF subs in June. One month later they released the review for online access. We are sure that our Chinese fans will enjoy this 12 page review very much.

Dutch magazine Music Emotion published a review of the LS1a in their ’summer edition’. Reviewer Jan de Jeu is very enthusiastic about the LS1a and its concept: “the Grimm Audio LS1a is an active loudspeaker system that plays in the highest league. Both with the technology and with a musical and truthful playback. And that at a budget price. For the money I cannot assemble a system of separate components and cables that performs at this level.” Before this conclusion Jan writes about a series of songs he played in various music styles, and that moved him strongly: “phenomenal!”

The major Hong Kong High End audio magazine “HiFi Review” did a review of the LS1be with DMF subs with no less than four reviewers, and made it their cover story. The reviewers were unanimously amazed. Please enjoy a translation of their judgements:

 

1) “The Grimm Audio LS1 playback system, which was selected as radio and recording monitoring system for the famous Amsterdam ‘Concertgebouw’ Concert Hall in the Netherlands, was definitely stunning in quality! If you prefer a coloured sound, this system may not be for you, but even then you should spend some time with it and perhaps change your opinion. If however you like to enjoy a fresh experience of fast, solid and accurate music reproduction for all kinds of music, this system will surprise you!” (River Chan)

 

2) “Hifi enthusiasts don’t need to worry over the sound quality of the LS1be+ LS1s-dmf's, nor over the required financial resources or space requirements. They only need self-examination about whether they are in this audio game to ‘play the machine’ or to listen to music. If the latter is the case, then this set of speakers will give you tremendous fun, and it will be almost impossible to achieve the same sound quality when spending the same price on separate hifi components.” (Archimedes Chan )

 

3) “When just looking at this active two-way bookshelf speakers with upward firing active subwoofer, I could never have imagined such powerful low frequency performance. Drum sounds can be played at high sound pressure levels, with a solid and strong kick drum. The sound is clean, fast and without resonance of its own. The low-frequency temporal resolution is high, and the rendering of tonal pitch in the extremely low-frequency range is very precise. This skill alone is worth more than €50,000!" (Sam Ho)

 

4) “The Grimm LS1be offers a much higher absolute audio quality than all of the overpriced astronomical speakers on today's premium audio market. During the entire audition process of the review, only music files were used as a source. Undoubtedly I heard the best computer file playback to date. To demonstrate the LS1be's low-distortion performance, we played a loud techno dance track, that shook my pants and pushed my heart to my brain! Even at these extremely high sound pressure levels, not the tiniest trace of distortion or compression was heard!” (Zhong Yi)

    Wai-Shan Lam, hifi enthusiast, Hong Kong (LS1)

  • The LS1 is by far the best speaker that AUDIO had the pleasure of reviewing in over 35 years; this especially in the two crucial audiophile disciplines of neutrality and detail reproduction.

    Wolfram Eifert, AUDIO, Stuttgart (LS1)

  • I was focusing more on the music than the equipment, something that rarely happens when I listen to digital...

    Tony Bolton, Hi-fi World, London (CC1)
