It´s been re-designed from the ground up to meet any modern requirements of todays hybrid workenvironments in music-, film-, scoring- or video-production!
Here is a sound comparison between the GRIMM AUDIO TPR Cable and a well known, high-quality cable of another typical studio cable brand.
This sound example shows of the difference the Grimm Audio TPR cable can make to a recording. The example was recorded in PuckSound Studios / Amsterdam, the used Gretsch drumkit was recorded with a single AKG 414-ULS as overhead mic. The mic wasn´t moved, only the cables were switched! Can you hear the difference? We surely can (in fact we think you can even on cheap speakers!).

This cable is also available as a 16 channel multicore, called Grimm Audio TPR16 Mulitcable. It´s made from the exact same material and specs as the TPR cable, which is an industry first! (all other brands use lesser gauge cables inside a multicore assembly)
Here is another sound comparison: This time ITB summing vs. OTB summing via a Phoenix Nicerizer mkII
The track "Home" from Martin Praetorius´ current album 'Affairs of the Heart' was mixed twice (the only way to compare the realworld outcome of an added analog summing unit!). One mix is summed in the analog domain straight from the D/A into the Phoenix Nicerizer mkII, no additional outboard gear was used, the other mix was summed inside the DAW.
We don´t tell you which is which just yet, have a listen…..decided for yourself and if you´re curious for the answer drop us an email:
Grimm Audio LS1 PRO - The Future is Grimm!
"This is the most exciting, strange, beautiful, ridiculously convenient piece of non-audiophile audiophile gear I have seen or heard...Run a 9,90 Euro cable from a Mac to the LS1, crank Spotify and see what I mean. Then hook up a high definition source, but remember to wear two pairs of socks. These things are a bit science fiction really."
President, Sony Classical
GRIMM LS1 PRO - The sensational monitor speaker from our favorite dutch think tank! We dare you to put it up against ANY mastering speaker in any price range, it´s really that good.
It´s a complete active and dsp controlled 2-way or 3-way playback system (which only differs in available SPL), ruler flat frequency response, IIR correction filter to avoid pre-echo, close to a minimum phase response and an unheard of impulse response, this results into a high degree of accuracy combined with untrammeled musicality. Software or Hardware remote controlled and with analog, digital or even direct usb inputs from Mac/PC.
"I could not be more impressed"...
