News about Blumenhofer Acoustics
The Vienna Vinyl and Music Fair is an event based on Music. Lots of Gigs, lots of good chances to buy LPs, CDs and any kind of material to play music. (here some pictures from the organizer)
It is not about tools and gears for reproduction of music. It is about music at all.
In this show we had a special room to make what we like: we played music.
Walter took several pictures of the event, here You can watch them on his web pages or here You can have a look at the ones we have chosen.
The Sweetspot in Stockholm was one of the first trips in the last year that I started with joy, here You can find the page of the show in Stockholm. Although Jan, our distributor, was sick and Marco (our Dutch distributor) and me had to prepare and setup everything.
Well we managed and almost all the people were talking english without problems, therefor we can say that we achieved a good result level.
The setup was amazing:
- Kronzilla stereo power amp, with the big tubes
- Kron preamplifier
- Reed turntable and tonarm
- Van den Hul Canary cartridge
All in all a very sounding system, with an extraordinary look and an extraordinary sex appeal in post industrial design.
My compliments to Maria from OldSchool HiFi to have had these beautiful ideas for the setup: we will copy them :-) and You can have a look at the pictures of the event here
In the Einstein Room we played the Genuin FS 3 MK 2 signature edition combined with The Amp Ultimate from Einstein and the Air Force III from TechDas turntable.
In the AAA room the Tempesta 17 was playing on an ASR integrated amp with the turntable project from the Analog Audio Association.
Both of the room had lots of visitors and the Tempesta 17 proved itself as a good allrounder to support the several seminars and information happening made by the AAA people.
The Genuin FS 3 MK 2… for me it was the first time I had the chance to use it and test it how it performs in a show environment. I'm pleased, no hassle in setting it up, no problems in having it playing the way we desired, no fatigue during the 2 days of listening… in fact we spent the whole Friday at listening as well: we were ready with the setup really fast! And, as usual, at the end of the Friday we paid a visit to the centre of the town and shopped for LPs: it is always a good moment and a good way to relax.

Mr. Daniel Schmid from AVguide.ch writes a very positive report about our Tempesta 17. It has been tested in a set with the Hegel 160 and the reporter was widely convinced about the delivered quality.
Here You can read it in German
These are some highlights from the text, in German:
- Die Tempesta 17 schaffte es mühelos die atmosphärische Dichte des Stampen in Stockholm ausdrucksstark zu reproduzieren
- die Wiedergabe hat Charakter und lädt richtig zum Musikhören ein
- Besonders überzeugend dann wieder die sehr akkurate räumlich Abbildung, welche sofern auf der Aufnahmen vorhanden einen herrlichen dreidimensionalen Klangraum erzeugt
- Die präzise und authentische Klangentfaltung bürgt für geschmackvollen und sehr kultivierten Musikgenuss mit hohem Spassfaktor
- MUSS SAGEN, ICH HATTE EINIGEN SPASS MIT DER TEMPESTA 17
It hit us as a positive surprise, we were not aware that our Genuin FS 1 MK 2 was in the narrow choice for the award in the Tower loudspeakers category.
Our Genuin FS 1 MK 2 got a superb review on Fairaudio.de and on 6moons.com back in march 2015 and now the Fairaudio favourite Award. This is our first award.
Looking forward for a successful 2016!!

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
