News about Blumenhofer Acoustics
Weihong Audio presented our loudspeakers in the ‘Ruby Hall’ at the China Hotel.
Thomas was there and if I look at the pictures it must have been a real success event. Killing for the big effort but for sure with enormous presence of people and customers.
The setup was based on Einstein amplification, Cammino cabling and power treatment.
There were 2 sets of loudspeakers playing: during the show the loudspeakers have regularly been swapped, sometimes the Genuin FS 1 MK 2 sometimes the Einsteins. Two different listening habits and two different ways of presenting music.
Then there was a second Blumenhofer room with Ottavio amplification where You could have enjoyed a completely different philosophy of sound.
Have a look at the pictures (here) to get the feeling of what happened.
Weihong Audio, our new Chinese distributor paid us a visit directly after the Munich High End. We had the chance to show them our premises and our way of working. Presenting the unicity of our company and our specialities.
During the discussion we talked about some important factors for the Chinese market and some special edition products. You will see some pop up in the next months.
Thank You for Your visit!
Here You can see the report of their visit in their hifi168.com page
And here You can enjoy some pictures of the meeting.
…btw, even our Swedish distributor, Old School HiFi was there…
Even this year we have participate to the SIAV in Shanghai. It was quite a different configuration and it was one of the first time that we played turntables in the far east.
According to the friends participating there, this was a good success!!
Here You can enjoy some pictures of our room at the show.
We were at the Guangzhou AV Fair. It was a very demanding trip for all the things we had to discuss and to do.
At the show there were 2 Blumenhofer rooms, both of them playing the Genuin FS 2 both of them with 2A3 tube amplifiers, do You know any other loudspeaker, able to be used with such a thin power amplifier at a show and present himself in the best way?
Here You can see some pictures and if You know the brands…
Tony participated to the Chengdu International Exhibition with our big Fun 17. Things are changing for us in China… soon more news about it!
Here our picture library
At the Beijing HiFi show played our Tempesta 20 connected to an Ottavio EL 48 power amplifier. I've heard this combination somewhere else and was really extraordinary!
This is the comment of Mr. Bill. Our friend and producer of Ottavio:
The Beijing Hi-end show we got alot of praise.Many of the network media and hifi fans write the reviews.
This show our equiment combination is;
- CD Player: CEC TL3N
- DAC: Apogee Symphony I/O
- Amplifier: Ottavio 84i
- Loudspeakers: Blumenhofer-Acoustics Tempesta20
Here You can see some pictures of the show. The setup was really nice!
Our Taiwanese friend Tony Hu, presented at the SIAV in Shanghai our Tempesta 17
The power amplification comes as well from Taiwan, they are the Arte Forma Audio power amplifier. The system was composed by the Thalia Preamplifier and the Due Volte Power Amplifier
I can imagine Music playing well and lot of people. The SIAV in Shanghai at the Shanghai International Convention Center has a 20 and more years tradition and it is a fix appointment in the Chinese HiFi industry.
I hope sooner or later to be able to go there again myself!
Here to see the few pictures I got from China.
Probably this year we will open new chances and future for the presence of our brand in China.
One thing I can state: it was an hard trip, but it was worth it.
==> to the gallery
During the show a professional recording engineer came to our room and made some demonstration about his recordings. There was a singer and himself was playing a flute.
After that he did not move any further: this was the room that was demonstrating best how near can be a reproduction match the original sound... barely a difference.
Enjoy the pictures!! in our gallery.
Then the 3 days show time, we had plenty of visitors staying in our room for longer time to enjoy the music and several potential dealers approached us too.
It was a long time that we did not go to China and we appreciated the opportunity.
In the end there were 3 rooms playing Blumenhofer Loudspeakers:
- the room of the German chamber of commerce playing a Fun 10 and a Tempesta 17 on the 3rd day
- our room with a Genuin FS 2
- the room of Mr. Amari with the Genuin FS 3 he purchased some years ago
what to say, we are small player, but apparently well appreciated :-)
I have to tell you what happened:
Mr. Miura San, Managing Director of Air Tight Japan, came to our boot and was so pleased by the sound of our speakers in our room that he asked to test them on his system in his room. We brought them to Air Tight's room and connected them to the ATM-2001S driven by the ATE-2001. He enjoyed and we did as well. It was only a pity that the room had a terrible acoustics for the basses...
The second amazing event was when During a walk trough the exposition, I've heard the italian song "Bella Ciao" performed by an enchanting female voice playing in a corner on a 250W Mark Levinson power amplifier.
We supported the responsible of our show room in Shangai to present our speakers at the Shangai audio show and then we spent some time in Shangai with him to complete the set up of the show room.
Every evening after work, some time to relax and to speak.
Looking forward to be there again
