We show the second LS1 prototype to the US at San Francisco’s AES. Please visit booth #1404 where Bruno, Eelco and Grimm Audio’s US distributor Mark Pappakostas will present not only the LS1 but also the MP1 in its beautiful new looks and of course the CC1 and AD1. Bruno enjoyed himself using Google Sketchup so we’d be sure everything would fit.

A CC1 has been used in a massive digital PA system in Gelredome stadium, Arnhem, The Netherlands. It served as sync master for a concert of Lionel Richie with the 'Symfonica in Rosso' orchestra of Guido Dieteren. On all 5 concerts the stadium was sold out with 30.000 people... 

The editorial team of German magazin’Studio Magazin’ did two large articles on word clocks and were impressed by the CC1 and our support. From part 1 (August 2008): "The Grimm CC1 offers a beautiful and precise sound, a pleasure to listen to." From part 2 (September 2008): "The jitter measurement results of the CC1 were the best of all competitors" (compared to Apogee Big Ben and Mutec iClock)

Guido and Eelco feature in an AES Amsterdam news items video by Sonicstate. We outline some aspects of our products, including the new LS1 loudspeaker. Enjoy!

The AES visits Amsterdam in our home country! We expect to have a great and busy show with all our Dutch friends, but of course we will find time for everyone visiting us at booth #2511, close to the bar. On show is the best kept secret of Grimm Audio: the first prototype of our LS1 DSP loudspeaker! Don't miss it...

  • I heard the LS1 in NYC at the AES Convention... man, I was really impressed. Although it was at the booth, I could identify my mix immediately. So far the best speakers I've heard.

    Christian Klotzbücher, Kunstuniversität Graz, Graz (LS1)

  • If someone came up with the idea to call the LS1 the best speakers he's ever heard, I would join in with a smile.

    Max Schlundt, Kultur...Technik, Berlin (LS1)

  • After all these years I finally have a standard on which I can rely.

    Al Pryor, Mack Avenue records, Hempstead (LS1)

  • This is probably the most 'correct' loudspeaker I've ever laid ears on. The combined honesty, neutrality and pleasing musicality is at a level that I haven't come across before.

    Christian Rechenbach, EinsNull magazin, Duisburg (LS1)

  • The LS1 seems to be a melting pot for all your expertises. I just find it fascinating. I am quite certain that the LS1 is at least the very very best 'value' in the market right now.

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

  • I have used all high end AD converters known to date. Every one of them had a sound to it. Your converter doesn't: it is completely transparant!

    René Gambini, Lyrinx, Marseille (AD1)

  • We are very impressed by the quality of this unit.

    Günther Pauler, Pauler Acoustics, Northeim (CC1)

  • The LS1's frequency response is unusually flat - indeed the flattest we've ever measured.

    Keith Howard, Hi-Fi News, Croydon (LS1)

  • A world class machine!

    Yasushi Hamase, Be-Tone Studio, Kanagawa-Ken (AD1)

  • I was in the opportunity to hear your CC1 unit and I have to say INCREDIBLE!!

    Carlos Imperatori, Producciones Tumbador, Caracas (CC1)

  • I had expected a small sound improvement. What happened is just the opposite: I am very impressed.

    Gerd Hoppe, hifi enthusiast, Alicante (CC1)

  • Throughout even the most turbulent passages the recording space stays luxuriously illuminated and the soundstage remains absolutely clear.

    Reinhold Martin, Hifi Statement Net Magazine, Gröbenzell (CC1)

  • 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)

  • 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)

  • 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)

  • Very impressive.

    Steve Hall, Future Disc, Los Angeles (AD1)

  • Sensational! I have never found this quality in any commercial AD converter.

    Ronald Prent, Galaxy Studios, Mol (AD1)

  • This is a larger improvement than I expected. The sound actually gains quality in all aspects.

    Marnix Bosman, HVT magazine, Baarn (CC1)

  • Suddenly and distinctly, there's a palpable increase in naturalness, extension and spaciousness.

    Nicholas Bedworth, Positive Feedback, Makawao (CC1)

  • The AD1 made the most realistic recording of my piano that I have ever heard. Incredibly realistic and involving.

    Mark Conese, Ambient Records, Stamford (AD1)

  • One for all and everything.

    Fritz Fey, Studio Magazin, Oberhausen (LS1)

  • I'm now using a DSD converter called a GRIMM for my SACD mastering. Big improvement.

    Steve Hoffman, Audio Fidelity, Los Angeles (AD1)

  • A fantastic experience to work with this device.

    Hein Dekker, producer for Channel Classics, Baarn (AD1)

  • I was thrilled with your power supplies for my Neumann M50's. We used those mics for an upcoming Chandos release of the Kansas City Chorus, and they were stunning.

    John Newton, Soundmirror, Boston (MP1)

  • I'm in tears, listening to my own recordings.

    Ben Zijlstra, Dutch Film & Television Academy, Amsterdam (CC1)

  • The jitter measurement results of the CC1 were the best of all competitors.

    Friedemann Kootz, Studio Magazin, Oberhausen (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)

  • This is a revelation. It is the first time in my 20 years of digital recording that I hear a fundamental improvement in sound quality.

    Leo de Klerk, Bloomline Studio, 's Gravendeel (AD1)

  • It seems as if the musicians have more fun when they play music.

    Ingo Iebhart, hifi enthusiast, Eberdingen (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)

  • You have to work hard on the LS1's to get a good sounding mix, but once you have it, you can be sure it really is a good mix.

    Wessel Oltheten, Pro Audio & Video magazine, Buren (LS1)

  • 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)

  • I didn't know clock influence was that big!

    Tim Vine-Lott, Air studios, London (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)

  • Did Grimm Audio reinvent the loudspeaker?

    Bert Oling, Hi-fi Video Test, Nijmegen (LS1)
