This year we supported with our products the Analog Audio Association Forum in Basel.
Blumenhofer Acoustics, Lavardin, Hegel, Manger, Cammino and other Cabling were the tools we used to contribute to their success. The cooperation was good, but, as usual there was quite a lot of work to do in there! All in all a success. If You are curious, You can enjoy the pictures here
The Analog Audio Association Switzerland has elected some products of our portfolio to present their own event in Basel. And honestly, they have chosen some of the best: the Lavardin ISX Reference and the Blumenhofer Acoustics Genuin FS 1 MK 2.
We will be present as well to be able to support them in all possible ways.
Here You can download the program of the event
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
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.
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.
This is the statement of Mr. Zimmermann, the owner of the shop. He seemed quite happy about the result and the visitors.
Es war ein grosser Erfolg! - Am Samstag und Sonntag den 05.+ 06.11.16 besuchten uns viele fachkundige High-End interessierte.
Wir bedanken uns herzlich für Ihren Besuch.
Here some more pictures
Schaffhausen, a small town in a wonderful landscape. Now High-End Audio Zimmermann is our dealer for Blumenhofer Hegel and Neat in Schaffhausen.
Es war ein sehr erfolgreicher Tag. Es hatte nicht wahnsinnig viel Leute aber alle hatten irgendwie
An den Event kamen Leute die von Christian eingeladen wurden und es gab auch Leute die Christian nicht gekannt hatte.
Die Kommentare zu Blumenhofer, Einstein und natürlich Hegel waren sehr positiv!
Die meisten kannten Blumenhofer nicht, waren aber erstaunt wie gut die Lautsprecher klingen.
Wir planen in Zukunft zwei Events pro Jahr bei Christian zu machen. Einer im Frühling und einer im Herbst.
Im EG führten wir folgendes System laufen:
Quelle: Mac Computer oder CD Transport Gato Audio CDD-1
DAC: Hegel Wandler HD30
Verstärker: Vollverstärker Hegel H160.
Lautsprecher: Blumenhofer Tempesta 17
Stromfilter: Cammino Power Harmonizer H 3.1
Im UG hatten wir folgendes System laufen.
Plattenspieler: Thales TTT-Compact mit Tonzelle EMT JSD 6
Phonovorverstärker: Einstein The little big phono
Vollverstärker: Einstein The Tune
Lautsprecher: Blumenhofer Genuin FS 3 MK 2
Stromfilter: Cammino Power Harmonizer H 3.1
Ich bin froh, dass ich diesen Lautsprecher (Genuin FS 3 MK 2) gekauft habe, der ist wirklich genial!!
It is a positive surprise, we were not aware that the Genuin FS 1 MK 2 was in the narrow choice for the award in the Floorstanding loudspeakers category.
The Genuin FS 1 MK 2 got a superb review on Fairaudio.de and on 6moons.com back in march 2015 and now the Fairaudio favourite Award. This is Blumenhofer's first award.
At the Montreux CE Expo 2015, we had a big room, about 70 square meter, and we presented the Genuin FS 2 combined with The Tune from Einstein. The whole power cleaning and cabling was based on Cammino products their Power Harmonizer to get the system playing at its best.
The opted for analogue music reproduction, but even our CD partners found a good solution for their needs. The sources have been:
- Plattenspieler Thales TTT-Compact including the famous Thales Tonarm
- CD Transport from Audio Tonale
At fist I was surprised by the quantity of strange products at the show: refrigerators, ovens, television sets, even pots and hair blowers.
At first I was not really understanding what was happening: very little public at the show. Then I understood that: it was a dealer show.
Each person entering the room was in fact dealer of some kind of electronic components or home appliances. GREAT!!
We had the time to spend and to discuss with each person coming to our room. I think I've seldom enjoyed such a relaxed and rich fair, seldom in such a beautiful place with such a rich environment (even outside the show area).
If You are curious? Here to our gallery.
At the Montreux CE Expo 2015, we have a big room, about 70 square meter, and we will present our Genuin FS 3 MK 2 combined with either Einstein or Octave power amplifiers. Our distributor Soundrevolution.ch, is still testing the setups and the final decision is stil not met. The whole power cleaning will be based on Cammino their Power Harmonizer is the key to get the system playing at its best.
The whole setup will be based on analogue music reproduction, but even our CD partners will find good solutions for their needs. The sources will be
- Plattenspieler Thales TTT-Compact
- CD Transport Audio Tonale
Same room like last year, the 317, but for sure not the same sound.... and this year, we know how to do it even better next year!!!
Anyway, the system was straight simple:
- Dr. Feickert turntable, the woodpecker
- Octave V70 SE Power amplifier with integrated phono module
- Audio Tonale CD Transport
- Hegel DAC
- Cammino Power Harmonizer
We had plenty of really good contacts and the music was really enjoyable, and, of course, we had lot of fun as well: here You can see some pictures
This was our first official participation to the Swiss High End 2013 in Zürich as high end distributor and I must say it was a really positive surprise. Blumenhofer is in Switzerland an already well known and estimated brand and the public knew what they were looking for. Really enjoyable.
The system was composed by:
- Gato Audio CD Player from Denmark
- Hegel Music System DAC with integrated Preamplifier from Norway
- Sauermann Audio Power Amplifier from Germany
- Wireworld and Cammino cabling from USA and Italy
- Cammino H3.1 Power Harmonizer from Italy
- and of course a very nice Genuin FS 2 in olive veneer.
I must say, it made music and the public liked it really a lot, the comments of the people going out of the room were really cheering and pleased me and the team exposing in Zürich.
Then the spectacular atmosphere created by the artistic tapestry and the very pleasant environment completed the charm. It was a long work, but it was worth it.
A big thank You to Andrea (from Blumenhofer) and Gerd Sauermann for support given during the show.
