Norwegian reviewer blown away by the LS1

Stereo+ LS1 review

We have another rave review for the LS1, this time in the Norwegian magazine “Stereo+” (does the LS1 have the world record for 5 star reviews by now?). Look at what Roy Ervin Solstad has to say about the LS1:

“Grimm shows that it is worth lending an ear to the pros. They know what they’re doing.”

“From the beginning, the thing that impresses most is the Grimm LS1’s ability to disappear completely. The sound stage is extremely homogeneous without any flaws, and the holographic precision of the sound is exemplary. Musicians and singers are nailed in a wide and deep sound stage.”

“One can turn up the volume to obscene levels without any kind of trouble. Never before have I feared that a speaker would dislodge the floorboards of my living room. It is simply the craziest full range level I have ever experienced at home. And this with complete control, definition and resolution.”

“The whole thing is so clean, and without a single audible blemish, not even from the room. They’re definitely not the kind of tool for those who enjoy tuning their system in one direction or another. These speakers are basically designed for monitor use in a studio. They show everything the way it is recorded, and that is precisely what you hear when you have them in your living room. For such a precision instrument, it is no surprise that the sound balance is extremely neutral. But at the same time the wonderful openness is enchanting. There is so much space around all instruments and voices, that I can not remember ever hearing it better.”

“I’ve played everything from Rammstein to chamber music on these speakers, and they eat everything raw. It is only what you feed this setup that determines what you get out at the other end.”

“You will have to go to great lengths to find something that matches this sound quality for the same price. What more can one wish for.”
