On Mother’s Day (at least in the Netherlands) – May 9, 2021 – we at Alpha Audio held a live stream event featuring three insanely beautiful streamers. Top of the bill: the MSB Discrete DAC with Renderer module, the Grimm Audio MU-1 with Mola Mola Tambaqui dac and the Naim ND555 with PS555 power supply. […]
We have another wonderful live stream planned for you. On May 9, 2021 at 10:30 we are going to start listening to three ultra-high-quality streamers: Naim ND555, Grimm MU-1 with Mola Mola and the beautiful MSB Discrete DAC with renderer module. In short: the crème de la crème.
On Sunday, March 28, 2021, we held another Live Test in the Artone Studios. We had three active speakers play: the Grimm LS1a, ATC SCM40A and the Dutch & Dutch 8C. Yes indeed: a familiar trio. But with one big difference: the prices are the same this time. How do they compare this time?
On Sunday November 1st 2020 we tested (Live on Youtube) three beautiful studio monitors. Speakers primarily for the studio. But in fact also very suitable for the living room. We are talking about the Dutch & Dutch 8C – 12,500 euros – ATC SCM100A SL classic – 22,950 – and the Grimm LS1be – 36,000 […]
This Saturday – August 15, 2020, 10:30 CEST – we are going to have a good talk with the Grimm Audio Guys. Eelco Grimm and Guido Tent have earned their stripes in the miraculous world of high-end audio. Well: in fact both on the hi-fi side and in the studio world. But we are wondering: […]
After our live stream “expansion project” in which we had to pull two 35 meter xlr cables, we got the idea to use CAT6-cable for those XLR microphone cables.

Grimm Audio has released a firmware update to version 1.1 for its MU1 musicstreamer. A series of new features now completes the device, according to the manufacturer.
Some reviews are ticking themselves. This can be positive or negative. But fortunately it is often positive. The Grimm Audio MU1 can not just be caught. That’s not so much because of the musical performance: they are excellent. Rather, it is a challenge to capture the way of playing and performing in words. That is really difficult in this case. Because… how do you explain that the Grimm Audio MU1 creates a feeling?
What a lovely cable again. No-nonsense… focus on quality. And the result is impressive. Clean, open, quick… …calmness. And that for a very reasonable amount of money. For us absolutely 5 stars and Alpha Approved.
Grimm – Grimm Audio – is a Dutch company that develops speakers, streamers, cables, (studio) clocks, DA and AD converters. The company does carry the name of Eelco Grimm, but know that there are more important people driving the company. Think Guido Tent (Tentlabs) and Menno van der Veen. Everyone is a specialist. And Grimm uses that. For example, they make grateful use of Guido Tent’s beautiful cooks and Menno’s power supply is used. LS1 An icon within the Grimm Audio product range is the LS1 speaker. A speaker that is used in a lot of high-end studios . The series consists of the ‘normal’ LS1, the slightly cheaper LS1a and the ‘no-compromise’ LS1be with a beryllium tweeter. The series can be equipped with a normal subwoofer, but also with the special MFB version (with montional feedback). MU1 Around 2019 the MU1 streamer was added to the range. With the MU1 streamer / Roon-server – it is possible to build a complete system with the LS1. There will then be a source and since the LS1 is an active system with d/a converter, you will be ready immediately.
