    Re: Testing the Grimm Audio MU1 streamer at Listening Matters, The Hague

    In case I would go for dCS I would be happy with the Rossini or Bártok. But I think the Grimm would play in the same league.

    Yes, this kind of device can be a gamechanger.
    Not everybody can spend 100K on a MSB or dCS stack...
    MSB Discrete is $10k and I will tell you, it’s superb. Add a Roon Renderer module and you’re all set (or just stick with USB and your music server if choice). Haven’t heard anything better at it’s price point. The Grimm sounds interesting, I’ll have to check it out. But I’m not sure I would be comfortable buying a digital streaming device from a speaker company. That’s just my two cents.

    Hi Mike,

    They're not really a speaker company.
    Check out their history on the Hans Beekhuyzen channel.
    There is a 13' video that describes their background.
    Their clocks are what made them famous.

    I'm sure the MSB discrete is a killer DAC, but I want something that streams multi-channel also.

    Gentlemen, might be nice to meet up. I’m planning to attend this year as well.

    Eelco Grimm and Guido Tent, Grimm Audio's designers, wrote me that the software update that will allow multi-channel streaming will be launched in 2 more months.
    There is an update before that. It will give the possibility to control the volume over AES and also to decode even more hi-res formats.
