Spring is a renovation time, our business increased and our product portfolio developed further in the analogue domain. For this reason our web pages became more and more clumsy and nothing but just a list of brands. It was time to spend a little bit more effort to permit our customer to find the relevant information with ease... even if this needs one click longer, it bears lot more content it is open to bear lot more information and suggestions for the dealers and the final customers.
We appreciate feedback.
We are expanding to become more and more specialised in analogue technology. We will be able to fulfil soon the needs of each music lover. Jelco is our new entry

We are improving our analogue offerings. Soulines from Serbia is now in our product portfolio.
Very nice and simple turntable based on a minimalistic concept.
Blumenhofer's goal was to keep the same friendly dimensions and the same friendly design of the predecessor. Not a bigger loudspeaker, but a far better sounding one.
The differences, technically speaking are 2:
- a new silk dome tweeter with 28mm diameter
- a new woofer same dimensions but with P2C membrane
The first production after the pre-series have left the company in the last weeks.
About the beginning of February it will be also available in Switzerland
We have been able to work out a deal with a special brand of loudspeakers: Audel, from Italy. They are specialized in transmission line loudspeakers and have an amazing workmanship for wood... but this is not the reason, why we have decided to take them on board: the design and the sound were the drivers of this choice.
Our friend at AVGuide.ch wrote a reportage of our visit on the 14th of November at Blumenhofer Acoustics (here). The article (in German) is amazing and shows the added value of Blumenhofer Acoustics and which are the ideas of Thomas and Andrea about the company and its products.
If You are curious about the article, You can read it here.
THE FACT THAT the Mohican CD player has no digital inputs, SACD playback or the ability to double up as a DAC caused a few raised eyebrows on the disc player’s launch, but sometimes it’s best to just concentrate on doing one thing, and doing it better than anyone else. Using a 32-bit AKMAK4490 converter run in native 16-bit/44.1kHz resolution, there’s no upsampling here – the result is a player that has a relaxed, natural and neutral sound that’s immensely satisfying to spend time with. If the Mohican is ‘The Last...’ CD player you ever buy, you won’t be disappointed...
We are moving in direction of a self hosted news system. Our choice went to Armadillo from Nimblehost. In a few days all older content will be transferred in the new platform. We are sure to offer a big improvement in the way the news will be handled and shared.
We (Christian Wenger from AVguide.ch and me) paid a visit to Blumenhofer Acoustics to interview Thomas Blumenhofer and Andrea Vitali about the company and the upcoming news. We collected lots of impression, very positive impressions and have learnt which products will soon hit the market. Some of them are really exciting, some other will bring good chances to promote the brand. We will promptly inform You on this line.
We shot lot of pictures during the days and visited some professionals installation as well.
We enjoyed the warm welcome and the great atmosphere trough and trough. Here You can browse the pictures we shot and have a little feeling of what unique product are the Blumenhofer Acoustics loudspeakers. I hope that the pictures will be able to transfer their richness and flavors.
In a few weeks Christian Wenger will publish an article on the AVguide.ch pages about the company and the interviews of Thomas and Andrea. You will find the link in these pages as well.
Mr. Zimmermann is opening his new show room. Blumenhofer and Neat loudspeakers are the tool he has chosen to present his power amplifiers.
