On the 29th issue of the HiFi-Stars Magazine in Germany there is a Company profile (in German).
Between page 62 and 67, You can read what Mr. Alexander Aschenbrunner tells about our company.
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…
This was the last event of our 2015. We participated at the Klangbilder 2015 in Vienna, Austria. Room Murray hosted our system and as we supposed at the start of the show, it was a good system:
- Accustic Arts and Trafomatic electronics
- Dr. Feickert Turntable
- Cammino power harmonization and complete cabling
- Symposium Acoustics Racks
- of course, our loudspeakers, the Genuin FS 2
(there was a smaller Tempesta 17 system, but in fact we did not use it that much)
To have more information You can read Walter Kircher's Blog or browse to our picture gallery or trough his picture gallery.
Music2, our distributor for the Benelux participated to the event with a Genuin FS 2. The people and the other people exposing Systems at the show were so amazed that probably Marco will be able to start new cooperations in the Benelux for the future. The names he mentioned were quite good sounding and tradition loaded, the timeframe of these cooperations is quite a short notice. I'm confident and looking forward: these are big successes in an HiFi Show. And these successes demonstrate on the other site the quality of the presentation.
Here to the few pictures provided by our distributor.
It was just a one day event in a town in the former East Germany. But it was not less worth than a whole weekend show. Borne from the cooperation of two HiFi shops in Leipzig, Germany, presented in 5 rooms lots of equipment and good sounding materials. We had our Genuin FS 3 MK 2 signature edition, and it won some more signatures during the show.
Armin (our sales rep) and Matthias (retailer of Uni-HiFi) told me that they were amazed by the musicality of our loudspeaker and the way the people appreciated its qualities. I do not doubt and I'm looking forward to have it in Hamburg myself. The ambiente and the whole program were first class. You can see it in our gallery here
It is useless to say that the show was gorgeous: everybody knows about the Audio Video Show in Warsaw, Poland. I did not. The more I've seen the more I was surprised by the dimensions and the perfect organization of the event. Adam has been able to build a real big, challenging, amazing event.
Nearly 150 rooms, I do not know if it is the second or the third biggest HiFi show in Europe, together with the Munich High End and the Norddeutsche HiFi Tage in Hamburg. When somebody claimed it was great, I could not imagine how great it is.
For the first time the 50 rooms at the national stadium have been added to the show rooms of the hotels. And we were there in one of those.
Now, to our presence: we were present in 2 rooms. One room in the main hotel another room is in the stadium.
The hotel room presented:
- Burmeister CD player
- Sphinx integrated Amplifier
- Tempesta 17 and Fun 13 loudspeakers
- Cammino cabling and power harmonization
The stadium room presented:
- Scheu Analog turntable
- Cary Audio CD Player
- Cary Audio electronics, complete: Phono Preamp, Preamp, Power Amp
- Cammino cabling and power harmonisation
- Genuin FS 1 MK 2 loudspeakers
We took all the time needed to setup the system and we let it play for the whole time, from the beginning of the show until the end. As usual we had wonderful surprises as we noticed that some of the components were getting better and better (in the end some of them were not even burned in).
And then we have discovered that people liked all the different kind of musics. There are shows, where You only can play classical music, there are shows where the classical music sounds like an invitation to exit from the room. In Warsaw it has been totally different! Death Metal, or Violin, Hard Rock or Soft Melodics. As soon as the music was good, people of all ages came in.
To see Yourself, You can have a look at our picture gallery here or come to the Audio Video Show 2016.
Spinelli HiFi in Viale Zara 108 in Milan hosted an event sponsored by our Italian distributor: HiFi United and the Home Vision group.
We have spent some good days playing there music. There were lot of people and very friendly customers. It was recharging! And we enjoyed it.
The system was composed by:
- Transrotor Turntable
- Rega CD Player
- Octave V70-SE Power amplifier
- Several components from M2Tech
- Astri contributed very effectively to tune the room acoustics
- and our Genuin FS 3 MK 2.
Lot of the components were brand new, but at the end of the days we managed to burn them in.
Tony participated to the Chengdu International Exhibition with our big Fun 17. Things are changing for us in China… soon more news about it!

Horten HiFi Messen is a small show in Horten, Norway.
Ketil invested lot of research to chose what to play in the room. He even made a professional measurement of the sound qualities of the room to be sure to be ready for the show and avoid surprises during setup.
Great hifi show
very nice feedback, the Fun 10 was perfect in this small room.
The set up was simple:
- Resonessence labs Mirus DAC
- Leben CS 600
- FUN 10
- Cables from Analysis Plus
- DAAD Room treatment from acustica applicata
Lots of people told me that this is a small show. Well they should be disappointed by that: the show is big! There were at least 25 rooms and huge crowd of people. We shall not forget that Slovenia only bears about 2 million inhabitants.
The Ljubljana Multimedia HiFi show is big (here its FaceBook page), and it is worth participate to it. No doubts on that. I was thinking about it since at least 2-3 years and this year, with the meeting with Igor Opassi from Tafos Audio this idea became real.
The quality of our performance rose day by day and we have been able to deliver the quality of sound I'm used to. Each day we had to face different problems in the room, but every day we have been able to master them! Thanks to Claudio Trevisanello from Cammino and our all ideas and intuitions. One time more I state that his products are a value added to the performance.
Surprising was the EL 84 Power Amplifier of Trafomatic. There are no other words to describe it: it has been able to push the music and transfer the life feeling trough the whole chain!
The quality has been confirmed by several positive feedback from the public and several e-zines:
- TooLoud, reported in his show review several times about our room, here
- Audiopuls, came professionally with his CDs and plaid them in a real hurry trough, but that was sufficient to leave a positive impression about our system, here
- Audio-Kontakt, the participants of the forum where enthusiastic about the performance we delivered, here
Now about the system, in room 105:
- Loudspeaker Tempesta 17
- Power Amplifier Trafomatic Audio Premise
- CD Player from Exposure UK, the smallest one
The whole system is about 7600€ and plays great music already
The analog part was based on my personal Technics SP-15 Turntable
and not to forget that the complete cabling and power treatment came from Cammino

It was worth being there. We think about being there again next year! Even with the hope to meet some of the people again!
Here our pictures.
At the Westdeutche HiFi Tage, Armin Kern and Stefan Brück presented a system in the hall of the Hotel. This is for sure not the best environment to present ta loudspeaker, but probably the most effective way to impress people.
They were playing for the first time ever the Genuin FS 3 MK 2 and they made a Signature Edition out of it… It is amazing was the idea of Armin!!
This loudspeaker will follow me in the next german events! We wait for Your contribution.
