Introduced back in 2009, now it is time to discontinue it.
It is a small loudspeaker with astonishing sound qualities. I know several people, who would not even think about changing it, not even for the bigger ones: they have become addicted to the bass horn!
Should You wish to have more information about it, You can find them here in Blumenhofer History.
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
During the show in Veldhoven 2012 we meet René Visker, a painter from the group of the Ritsart Gallery in Maassluis, The Netherlands.
René speciality are realistic painting and we were all quite astonished about the way and the quality of his work. After this meeting we decided to cooperate with them.
Curious about the result, here some more pictures… more will come.
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.
That article is a really good description of what our loudspeaker is able to do.
By chance I found the online version of the article some minutes ago. Here You can read it.
That article was a comparison between 3 horn loudspeaker following 3 different operating principles. Here You can find the whole comparison.
You can read it on Stereoplay 06/2012 on page 38 as well.

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.
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 17 today became the big Fun 17. No other changes in the project, but the name.
We introduced a new speaker, the Fun 13 that has a back loaded bass horn and no horn for the tweeter...
The big Fun 17 has a back loaded bass horn with a compression driver as tweeter, a big difference
The Fun 17 has been presented by Da Pieve HiFi and Arem HiFi of the Homevision group. The presentation met the taste of the public and the response have been positive.
We participate to the Norddeutsche HiFi Tage in Hamburg and they have been the most relaxing days in the last months. After 2 days of Music we still did not have enough of it :-)
The chain playing was composed by:
- Einstein CD Player - The Source
- Einstein Power Amplifier - The Absolute Tune
- Blumenhofer Acoustics - Fun 17
- Einstein Cables
- Rack Andrea&Volker special construction for the Norddeutsche HiFi Tage

We received some days ago a mail from one of the visitors of the exposition, I translate it here below... I do not need to say more, this is the biggest satisfaction for me.
Dear ladies and gentlemen,
With biggest surprise and genuine astonishment among the present people, I truly enjoyed your presentation with my brother in law on saturday evening! In our ramble trough the corridors he suddenly said “there plays a live band!” (no joke) and disappeared in direction of Blumenhofer/Einstein... that was the hammer!
Tree times we came back to the room because it made Fun to enjoy each kind of music that way.
