Manger: Behind the scenes at the Munich High End 2018

Klangschloss Greifensee 2018



What a show has been the 2018 edition of the Klangschloss.ch in Greifenberg. Very enjoyable and very smooth in the long run.
Public was at a very high musical level, presentations were amazing, location was gorgeous… and we had a beautiful weather ;-)

We had a big setup composed by:
- Merging Nadac 8 channel DAC-Preamplifier with external power supply
- Gato Audio CD Player
- Gato Audio Mono Power Amplfiiers
- Whole cabling by Cammino
- Decouplers from Omicron
- Loudspeakers Genuin FS 1 MK 2 from Blumenhofer
- Rack studied and developed by us in Attalens
From the pictures You can have more information about the components and how they have been connected in our setup

The listening room was split in half: we shared the room with Illusonic, a Swiss company specialised in digital sound processing. This is not our philosophy, it is a different approach that can suit quite a lot of situations, where it is not possible to work with analogue technologies. Very appreciable.

We only had digital music, played with a Roon-based control. It was the first time since longer time that browsing the titles on the iPad gave a certain analogue feeling. Andrea says that he will investigate Roon as soon as he is at home, when an LP-convinced like him says so, it must mean something.
At the show there were several rooms playing completely analogue setups, as You can see from the pictures, with reel to reel and really classic 40 years and older turntables.

One really amazing part were the presentations that occurred in the show days. Here You can download it and get a short feeling, of what Andrea Vitali from Blumenhofer Acoustics lectured. There were much more people in the lecture, than he expected. The feedback was positive, very informal and informative speech, they said. Andrea accepted the compliment and enjoyed the questions after the lecture.

We all enjoyed the show at the Klangschloss and the great engagement of Marcus to have a great show in the amazing avenue. Looking forward for the Klangschloss 2019.
In the meantime You can enjoy here some pictures of the 2018 event

Our visit at the Munich High End 2016

Participation to the CE Expo in Montreux

2015_09_20-Montreux


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.

- Audio Tonale CD Transport
- Hegel DAC

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

Swiss High End 2013 in Zürich

2013_10_18-SwissHighEnd01


This was our first participation to the Swiss High End 2013 in Zürich 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.
If I made You a bit curious, here You can find the picture gallery.
