AV-NU Audio Show in Utrecht 2011

STS-Digital has been present at the show, and as I asked Fritz his impressions, he gave me his enthusiastic statement:
We flabbergasted every visitor of the AV-NU show with a sound that, we think, they never heard before: it was music. They never experienced reproduced music in a way that Blumenhofer presented at the show.

Lots of interests and lot of pictures have been taken... the biggest surprise of the public was that that "small" speaker (Genuin FS 3) has been able to have such a big volume impact and quality.

The new Marantz SACD Edition 14 has come on the market. It has been mastered with Blumenhofer Acoustics Genuin FS 1 and Genuin FS 3. Take a look at it, it is worth it, and here You can purchase it online directly by STS-Digital.

Never boring, sometimes swinging in a cozy feeling, sometimes hitting You with extraordinary impact and speed, sometimes taking You away with sweet voices. Have a listen and enjoy its music.


Analog Audio Forum in Krefeld 2011


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.


Renaming the Fun 17 into big Fun 17

The only change is in the name.

The Fun 17 today became the big Fun 17. No other changes in the project, but the name.
Why this?
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

We introduce the Fun 13

We were wondering if we would have been able to produce a loudspeakers in a more affordable price range that our big Fun and Genuin Series.
The Fun 13 has borne.

Back loaded bass horn Loudspeaker with a standard silk dome for the tweeters.
High quality MDF wood and an astonishing sound quality at only 2.400€ German suggested retail price


Event in Chiclana de la Fronteira 2011

Tomás of Pick-Up Sound invited me to participate to the event for Blumenhofer in Chiclana de la Fronteira, near Cadice in Spain on the 8th of October.
It was the best occasion to know him and his team personally and support his promotion of our brand in Spain.

I have been very warmly welcomed and felt as I would fit well there, maybe is the southern way of thinking, maybe is because I'm Italian and it seems natural to be there.

We set the system up on the 7th and on the morning of the 8th and have been quite satisfied of the sound result.
The setup consisted of an Ayon Spark III, and an Ayon CD Player.

At 10:30 started to come the first visitors: customers and friends of Tomás and Pick Up Sound: the enthusiasm and the affluence have been far better than expected. People came from Sivilla, Granada and Malaga to spend the day with us listening for music.
During the afternoon we changed the cables, XLR instead of RCA for the connection of the CD Player to the Power Amplifier... the setup was already good, it became fantastic!

After the show Antonio wrote me a mail that gave me lot of Joy:
[...] I think the FS 3 are amazing, love it. But the most impressing thing was Mr Vitali illuminating face every time he pronounced the word “music”.
I hope you never lose that passion and love for music, because I think that is the spirit that makes your brand sound as good.[...]

Here You can read some more about the event on the Forum of PickupSound

And that's one fact that we should never forget, as Carlos suggested during the event:

Music is a way of life. It is not made to test the systems

The Blumenhofer Experience CD - Groove into Bits Vol. 1

We spent 2 days having lot of fun listening for music and remastering it directly from the LPs.
Conny Engelmayer - You will learn some more about him in the future - has made a narrow choice out of his 10.000 LPs collection.
Fritz de With - STS Digital - brought his recording equipment to Walkertshofen.
Thomas was more at the coffee machine than at the audio equipment: lots of double expressos, just for the good taste of them.
Lars - Kanzy - presented us his power amplifier

The Sound playing system was:
- Technics SP 15 Turntable
- Turntable Plint made by Blumenhofer
- Pro-Ject 12" Tonearm
- Sound-Smith Strain-Gauge Cartridge
- Kanzy KAAM-800 Power Amplifier

Fritz is now preparing the Master and we expect the CD to be on the market before the end of the Year.

Dynamic Experience Vol. 1 CD: reworked with Blumenhofer

The second release of the Dynamic Experience CD of STS-Digital has been rechecked with Blumenhofer Acoustics. Here You can purchase it online directly by STS-Digital.

Listen for it and it will not go out of Your head: You will leave Your chair with a light sensation of music carrying You around: an experience in pure dynamic.
