Blumenhofer Acoustics is now member of the Analog Audio Association

Today Blumenhofer Acoustics joined the Analog Audio Association. The AAA, is committed to pure analog audio reproduction: from the LP to the loudspeaker our listening bases on analog... why to use the bits and bytes is the question of the AAA. We share with them the love for the analog music reproduction and LPs.

2011_12_01-Analog-Audio-Forum-logo

following a short text from the AAA-webpage about their way of thinking: Die Schallplatte lebt! Während die Verkaufszahlen digitaler Tonträger schwächeln, feiert die Langspielplatte heimlich ihr Comeback. Immer mehr Menschen, die mit der CD groß geworden sind, entdecken für sich die Magie der schwarzen Scheiben und die bunte Welt der großformatigen Plattencover. Viele DJs in den Clubs und Discotheken schwören aus rein praktischen Gründen auf die bewährte Schallplatte. Inzwischen hat der LP-Verkauf wieder die Millionengrenze geknackt. Aus gutem Grund: Trotz aller Fortschritte der Digitaltechnik, trotz neuer Daten- und Tonträgerformate ist die Schallplatte klanglich das Maß aller Dinge. Heißt es doch in Bezug auf DVD und SACD: "Nie war digital so analog wie heute!"

Stereoplay nominated the Genuin FS 1 one of the 100 best loudspeakers of the World

Stereoplay's chief redactor Holger Bierman has chosen the Genuin FS 1 among the 100 best loudspeaker of the world.
"Die 100 beste Lautsprecher der Welt" is the name of the publication, it is a special issue for this season. It is going to be available in the next few days in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

German and Italian webpages are now integrated in the .com page

Now is trough. Not jet 100% translated or complete, but renewed a lot inside and a little bit on the outside
Since 2 hours the German and the Italian web pages of Blumenhofer Acoustics are fully integrated in the english one. Take a look at them, graphically has not jet changed that much. But the function is much easier and faster, for customer and for the maintainers.

Furthermore have been integrated the services and the possibility to interact with the world wide community of Facebook, Twitter, Blogspot and Flickr. It has been a long path from the old setup to this one, full of difficulties and things that did not want to work from the start. But this gives our company the possibility to be more present in the networked world. Others will come, but I'll not anticipate anything. Stay tuned and You will see more and more Blumenhofer present in the network and in the media.

Due to the new design and setup the implementation of new section of the site will become a breeze. In the next future You will be able to read more and more about the services Blumenhofer is able to deliver to his customers of both commercial and final customer's in both private and professional audio.

The only drawback is that the news page will now only be in english and no more translated in German and Italian but on blogspot it is possible to get a rough translation of the page made from google: it is a really good way to have free fun :D

For today it is sufficient. Enjoy the new web page and, if You have any comment, feel free to post them on
Facebook I'll do my best to answer them :-)

Westdeutsche HiFi Tage in Bonn 2011

We have been present at the Westdeutsche HiFi Tage in Bonn.

Jürgen Fuchs of
HiFi Studio Fuchs presented our Loudspeakers.
The show has been a real success of public with over 2000 people visiting the show.
In my humble opinion, this is what music needs to find back its place in the houses of the people: the place it deservs.

I asked Jürgen a statement about the event. These are his words:

am Samstag haben Grandinote Shinai und Celio die Fun 17 auf Touren gebracht.
Sonntag haben eine Trigon Phonovorstufe und ein Mastersound 300B / PSE die Musik übernommen.
An beiden Tagen spielte ein
Rui Borges UNO Plattenspieler mit Reed 2A Tonarm und Phase Tech 3G Tonabnehmersystem. Die Verkabelung stammte von dolphin audio.
Die Veranstaltung wurde von ca. 3000 interessierten Musikliebhabern besucht. Das Interesse verteilte sich gleichmäßig auf Plattenspieler, Elektronik und Lautsprecher.
Insgesamt wurde jedoch immer wieder die Homogenität der angeschlossenen Musikgeräte hervorgehoben.
Resultat: One of the best sounds of the show!!!
Also eine Wiederholung der Meinungen vom
Analog Forum in Krefeld von vor drei Wochen.

here the english translation:

on saturday Grandinote Shinai and Celio powered the big Fun 17
Sunday a MastersounD 300B/PSE and a Trigon Phono-preamplifier took over.
On both days the
Rui Borges UNO turntable with REED 2A Tonearm and Phase Tech 3G cartridge. Cables from Dolphin Audio.
About 3000 people have been present at the show and the interest has been distributed between turntable, electronic and loudspeakers.
Always has been appreciated the homogeneity of the whole chain. This lead to the common statement of the public 'Best sound of the show'!!!
Again, the same opinion and feedback coming from the
analog audio forum in Krefeld 3 weeks ago.

Visit of René L. van Es - Freelance Journalist of Music Emotion

René L. van Es - Freelance Journalist of Music Emotion - has spent the weekend with us in Walkertshofen.
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!!

Retro event in Walkertshofen

We had our vintage event in Walkertshofen.

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.

We introduce the Genuin FS 2

Who would have thought? After several attempts we have it. It costed 3 different attempts to finally get the Genuin FS 2 ready.

It is a standard horn loudspeaker with floor ported bass reflex system. A 30cm woofer that surprises for speed and extension.
