News about Blumenhofer Acoustics
Weihong Audio, our new Chinese distributor paid us a visit directly after the Munich High End. We had the chance to show them our premises and our way of working. Presenting the unicity of our company and our specialities.
During the discussion we talked about some important factors for the Chinese market and some special edition products. You will see some pop up in the next months.
Thank You for Your visit!
Here You can see the report of their visit in their hifi168.com page
And here You can enjoy some pictures of the meeting.
…btw, even our Swedish distributor, Old School HiFi was there…
While we were sweating in the halls of the Munich High End, Igor Opassi, from Tafos Audio, enjoyed at the Internautica in Portorose, Slovenia. Even if the public was more interested in other issue, for sure the public was more appealing for a men's eye ;-)
Browse the pictures taken by Igor and You will for sure agree with me. Here.
Lot of stories to tell. Lot of satisfactions in several fields.
Miura San (we met him already in Guangzhou 2009), the owner and founder of Air Tight, paid us a visit and spent half an hour with us listening to music. I had the feeling that he enjoyed it.
One Polish journalist came and had a longer talk with me. In the end it came out that he reviewed the Genuin FS 3 MK 2 and dropped his comment on the speaker: "It is a f***ing good loudspeaker, what would You wish more?"
Giulio Cesare Ricci, owner of Fonè, a small but really fine Italian recording company, and organizer of the Gran Galà dell'Alta Fedeltà expositions in Italy, came as well to our room. His idea was to sit down and relax, taking a short nap and saying some circumstances word about our equipment… he could not sleep, at the first tone he jumped on the chair flabbergasted by the quality of the reproduction of his own LPs. We made a short presentation in his room and then he came back several times since! And… he wishes for a cooperation with us in Padova and Milano, where he will present some new records of a famous Italian Rock Star.
An american Tenor, husband of Mr. Jason Victor Serinus from Stereophile, spent longer time in our room and came back several times. In the end I have been shortly interviewed by his husband and received a positive feedback on Stereophile.
A Russian Music lover, who came to our room after each listening in other rooms, just to get his reference back again and start for the next room.
An Englishman, who was surprised that such an 'affordable' system was giving real music, where lot of the others were just asleep and wrong. He spent longer time talking with us to know where to start from to get his system working in the proper way.
A Dutchman who was jumping on the chair for some music and was romantic engaged by other music, really emotional.
What else, there are lot of stories, these are just some that stick more in the head. Other will come up during the next days. Looking forward, positively looking forward for the upcoming news…
Meanwhile, You can have a look at our event pictures here

Even this year we have participate to the SIAV in Shanghai. It was quite a different configuration and it was one of the first time that we played turntables in the far east.
According to the friends participating there, this was a good success!!

It was lot of trouble to get it.
If You are curious about the long day of work we had to transfer and install it, here You can see some pictures.
It helped us to supply one valid product even in the lower market segments, where the competition is fiercer and does not always rely on real quality of sound and of the product.
Our distributor, André Aebischer, from Soundrevolution.ch was very enthusiastic about the event in Olten. Here are his words in German!

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.
