News about Blumenhofer Acoustics
It was (and still is) a great loudspeaker, and sounds really mature with big fundament and musicality, they way we like it.
Since the introduction and the price reduction of the Genuin FS 2, its sales virtually stopped. Now it is time to stop its production as well.
He organized the show with an exceptional presence of our brand: our loudspeakers were present in 3 rooms.
In one room there was:
- Genuin FS 1
- in a setup with 4 Turntables from Pluto and Acoustics Signature
- 4 Phono preamplifiers from Einstein, van den Hul, Octave and Monk Audio
- and the Octave V110 with a (silver) black box.
- 2 H3.1 Power Harmonizer from Cammino
a really impressive setup.
On the sunday, in this room have been recorded and replayed a live concert of Case Mayfield. It was astonishing to have the artist sitting there and the music playing 1 to 1 and hardly notice a difference between the live and the playback performance.
The second room had:
- Blumenhofer Acoustics Genuin FS 2
- Einstein integrated amplifier
- Einstein Phono Preamplifier
- Dr. Feickert Blackbird
The third room showed:
- Blumenhofer Acoustics big Fun 20
- Hans Acoustics Turntables
It was a long weekend: on the first day we made the setup until 2:00 in the morning and this after a long trip. The people and their warmth payed us off: our presentations, each with its own personality, convinced. - Room Erfolg: Jürgen Fuchs and Uwe Trabert presented a setup consisting of MastersounD preamplifier and 300B mono blocks connected to a big Fun 20. Their source was the turntable of Roi Borges from Portugal. - Room Begeisterung: Volker Bohlmeier has been able to create a special atmosphere and his blues and his warm music let the people stay in the room for longer than usual. - Conference room of the AAA (Analog Audio Association): unexpected. On Friday, short before the beginning of the show, the setup was not yet decided... good chance I had a Fun 17 with me, the people of the AAA decided to use it. In the conference room have been lectured lot of information and examples about music, recording and sound. The room was usually really quite full! Thanks a lot to the whole organising team and to Rainer Bergmann for the perfect event.
We enjoyed the visit of lot of people and received really positive feedback on our 2 rooms.
Dimitri, Max und Gigi supported us in Room 374 with the Grandinote power amplifier and the Labtek Tube-SACD player.
We have been presenting with Einstein Audio Components in room Versailles.
Thank you all for being there.

Vexo: Giampaolo and Carlo used our Genuin FS 3 and presented their new preamplifier and a 2A3 Amplifier
Mastersound: Lorenzo used our big Fun 20 with his 845 Evolution
Sutra: Boris and Stefano played on a Fun 17 with their Digital power amplifier
Grandinote: Max showed his Prestigio on a big Fun 20 and on a Satellite Mini
I think this demonstrates that our speakers are really versatile :-)
As usual in the last minutes, but right on time we reached Chardonne in Switzerland. Nice situated on the Geneva Lake.
He decided to test the big Fun 20 because:
- the Genuin FS 3 had been already tested in some papers
- the Fun 17 was not jet burned in
The report has not been positive, and this is luck for the company: we were not yet ready for the international market and its demands, this would have taken us to bigger problems!!!
Furthermore the points Srajan focused on have been really good suggestions to improve our products and grow a lot in quality!
Here you can read the report.
I must say something: if you are disappointed reading it, remember, we did our homework and improved and corrected the flaws Srajan appointed. Come and listen yourself!!
- we improved the crossover changing one component that eliminated the echo Srajan was talking about (yes there was an echo and yes this was entirely our mistake)
- we improved the internal wiring
- we had to slightly change the compression chamber of the mid high driver due to a sub-supplier shortage: this lead to an unexpected improvement
- we changed the supplier of certain Caps
After these changes Stereo, a leading german magazine has chosen the big Fun 20 to become reference speaker. All the customers received the improved version of the big Fun 20.
The Fun 17 and the big Fun 20 have born.
They convince for the natural sound and the perfect matching speed and coherence between the 2 speakers.
They use innovative concepts for the horn and several kinds of new materials in the construction of the components.
