News about Blumenhofer Acoustics
Armin Kern, our sales representative in the northern part of Germany, presented nearly our complete product portfolio at the Mitteldeutsche HiFi Tage in Leipzig.
He just told me that the success was amazing and that there will be some follow up in the near future.
Ufff...geschafft, wir haben die Messe erfolgreich beendet und hatten sehr guten Zuspruch! Armin hat wieder mal die Bude gerockt!...Schlagzeuge knallen lassen...Kontrabässe schnurren lassen und so manches musikalisches Highlight an's "Hörorgan" gebracht, einfach Geil! Die Blumis sind und bleiben einfach der Hammer.
Here You can see the few pictures I received.
Likehifi.de invited his readers to have a try to Blumenhofer Acoustics. Here
Thinking out of the box, the event is happening on Sunday Monday instead of Saturday Sunday. Well.
Armin Kern, our Representative North of the WeißWurst-Equator will present our products together with the products of Supra, Nottingham Analog and Synthesis. A quite good promising setup. Enjoy and book a personal presentation directly with him.
It was a really crowded event, lots of people talking and getting in contact eager to know and understand the news on the music reproduction.
This time our loudspeakers were just as static display. Next time… probably…
Here You can enjoy more pictures
On page 14 of the 123rd issue of the Image HiFi there is a nice article issued by Clemens Mayer, our dealer in Hamburg, about a 10.000€ system including our Fun 13 loudspeaker. Clemens commented on his experience and his thought in the setup, here You can read his idea behind.
Heinz Gelking the reviewer involved to try the musicality of our Fun 13 was pleased by the sound result achieved with the loudspeaker. This is the demonstration that there is not need to invest the equivalent of a small flat to have a good sounding system.
Enjoy the reading!
These are the Words of Mark van Braam of Audio 21:
"The 12th October, Audio21 in Wapenveld NL held their vinyl-party. In three listening rooms, three sets, the first Gran Gioia with the new preamp of Sonore AC, in the second the FS2 ‘patchwork’ which is probably the most special pair of the world, also with the amps of Sonore AC. The third listening room was filled with the fun13, amp of Pathos Acoustics. And of course vinyl was always the source; Pluto and Dr. Feickert were ‘singing’. Outside in a tent, the local vinyl store showed their new stock. About 150 people came to this charming event, in the most charming hifi-shop of the Netherlands. Next year, the first weekend of may, the second edition of the ‘Vinylfuif’. The word ‘fuif’ is difficult to translate… an other word for ‘party’ which was used in the 80’s."
Here to the picture gallery
Well... they were that busy dealing with customers that they forgot about taking pictures.
It must have been amazing.
A familiar ambient and a really professional support from Mark van Braam, near there a very cosy Bed and Breakfast to be able to enjoy Your own listening section until late at night and the whole day after.
Here some pictures of the event.
Das Finale Furioso. Thomas Blumenhofer aus dem schönen Walkertshofen im Allgäu baut anerkannterweise mit die besten Hornlautsprecher in Deutschland. Seit geraumer Zeit gibt's sogar durchaus preiswerte Böxchen für den Hörnchen-Einsteiger. Wir spielen sowohl die Einstiegsdrogen als auch die großen Teile für fortgeschrittene Freaks. Die Elektronik ist von mir. MuSiCa NoVa halt, Röhre pur, kompromisslos und dennoch bezahlbar. Als Zuspieler dient zum einen der CD-Player ProMetheuS, ebenfalls aus meiner Manufaktur. Zum anderen kommt ein Plattenspieler von dem angesehenen Berliner Spezialisten Scheu Analog zum Einsatz. Somit können wir glatt sagen: Alles deutsche Wertarbeit.

This time has been a different show, I spent a lot of time talking with final customer in our room and it has been really enjoyable.
Volker of Einstein Audio had as usual really great music and was fun.
Fun 13, our new speaker was the star of the room and the people were surprised by the range and musicality that it has been able to express for the 2 days.
It has been driven by:
- The Source, the gorgeous CD Player of Einstein Audio
- The absolute Tune, the integrated Einstein Amplifier
and on the analog side there was
- Roksan Xerses turntable
- The Turntable Choice, phono preamplifier of Einstein Audio
Power Harmonization by Cammino, Italy
With him were Fritz de With, Lars Dam and Cor Kleijn.
We have listened, discussed and drunk a lot of coffee.
The Setup was impressive:
- Turntable: Acustic Signature Ascona
- Tonearm: SME M2-12
- Cartridge: Sound Smith Strain Gage
- Cabling: of Cammino Reference Stage Loudspeaker and Reference Interconnect
- Amplification: Kanzy KAAM-1000
- Loudspeaker: Wiki, Genuin FS 2, Fun 13
During the days we had as well found some music ideas for the future Blumenhofer Acoustics CD, and I tell You, even if the first CD has not jet come on the market, we are already looking forward for the second. BTW, how do You like the title for the CD (SACD maybe?) "Groove into bits"? It reflects the way we recorded it: mastering directly from the turntable :-) We also had a short taste of the first songs and they sound really "analog".
The discussions were long, the interviews interesting the ideas astonishing. A real brainstorming weekend that will have effects in the near future of the company. In other companies it is called business development, we call it listening for music.
At the end René was overwhelmed by the sound and the music. You will be able to read his impressions in Music Emotion in December. We are looking forward to read the full article!!
Two systems were playing,
- one with an vintage Thorens turntable and a vintage 2250B Marantz receiver playing our new Fun 13 loudspeaker
- one with a Technics SP-15 and a Marantz nineteen (19) receiver playing our new Genuin FS 2 loudspeaker
The only modern components were our speakers,
Well, we all agreed, with modern loudspeaker technology older systems are able to deliver better performance than lot of new systems on the market.
Coffee and cheese were a roundup to the music enjoyment.
We will have another retro evening on the 10th of December. Feel free to come and participate.
This year our participation to the Analog Audio Forum has been really relaxing. The hard part was before and after: there were 4 rooms playing Blumenhofer Acoustics:
- Room 'Ausdauer' - the organizer's room used a Gran Gioia for its presentation and seminars. The final amplification was a Grandinote Prestigio and the cabling was as well made in Italy by Cammino
- Room 'Königsregel' - was Einstein Audio and Blumenhofer official Room, played a big Fun 17
- Room 119 - was Peter Steinfad's Room. The setup of the frankfurter hörgesellschaft was based on Musica from Japan and Crayon Audio from Austria, played a big Fun 17
- Room 122 - was Jürgen Fuchs from HiFi Studio Fuchs the setup was based on Mastersound, Rui Borges Turntable, Grandinote Phono Preamplifier, played a big Fun 17
I'm really satisfied with the result our rooms achieved during the show.
I have to say a great thank You to the whole organization team and the really kind people working for the Music in its original form.
At the end of the Show, Eric from Essen won a Pair of Blumenhofer Acoustics Satellite PC Loudspeakers and Marion from Oberhausen one set of DynAris by Aktyna.
The Fun 13 has borne.
