Lately I've noticed my system wasn't sounding so great and found my CC2 was accidently turned off. Once I secured the power cord, turning on the unit, I happily noticed how much more vivid, dimensional, and natural everything sounded.

In many years I tried all brands of the world for a master clock. So far only the CC1 can really fulfill my wishes.

Last week I was recording a strings section and piano. My client was very happy and he asked me if I changed something in the studio. Of course, it was your CC1.
Josep Umbria, Calma Estudis, Manacor (CC1)
The CC1 is a brilliantly designed piece of equipment. Every piece of gear that I plugged into it sounded better and more natural.
Erik Zobler, Mix Magazine, Los Angeles (CC1)
My most impressive upgrade so far!

Its job is so critical that I’d never settle for less.

I had a client ask why my mixes were so much better this week.
John Davis, The Bunker Studio, New York (CC1)
I'm in tears, listening to my own recordings.
Ben Zijlstra, Dutch Film & Television Academy, Amsterdam (CC1)
The CC1 brings out a level of detail and clarity that I had dismissed as only possible with analog.
John Davis, The Bunker Studio, New York (CC1)
This clock is incredible. The detail and imaging from it are superior to anything we heard.
Allen Farmelo, Pink Noise magazine, Hopewell Junction (CC1)
This is a major improvement. We need much less eq on the high end, the low end sounds more solid and the punch on the snare is great. This clock is a large improvement, we were amazed.
Peter Riebeek, Studio 150, Amsterdam (CC1)
I did some sessions in 44.1, 48 and 96. It works great, and sounds fantastic. The CC1 is such a great upgrade in the studio, amazing!
Samuel Girardin, Point d'Orgue, Montreal (CC1)
A signal that sounds pretty decent with a good clock, sounds just incredible with the Grimm Clock.
Hay Zeelen, Hay Zeelen Mastering, Amsterdam (CC1)
I didn't know clock influence was that big!
Tim Vine-Lott, Air studios, London (CC1)
What can I say... what a difference
Michael Pfeiffer Strauss, Erftstadt (CC1)
The jitter measurement results of the CC1 were the best of all competitors.
Friedemann Kootz, Studio Magazin, Oberhausen (CC1)
I had expected a small sound improvement. What happened is just the opposite: I am very impressed.
Gerd Hoppe, hifi enthusiast, Alicante (CC1)
Realize that not all timepieces are created equally. In this regard, the Grimm CC1 has no peer.
Bob Katz and Garrett Haines, TapeOp, Sacramanto (CC1)
I was impressed by how my chain with the EMM's got a benefit when I added a Grimm clock to my setup. Guided by what the literature and many designers are saying I was stunned about the change in a positive way) in sound.
Daniel Dettwiler, Idee und Klang Studio, Basel (CC1)
I buy and sell a lot of stuff, but the CC1 is not leaving the building.
Alex Abrash, AA Mastering, New York (CC1)
After installing your CC1, I often catch myself thinking that I listen to 88.2 when in reality it is 44.1. Their difference used to be much larger, and both sound much better now.
