HiFi Stars and the Munich High End System with the Gran Gioia 2x10


On that day, we had a longer afternoon with the two journalists of the HiFi Stars, a german magazine. Alexander Aschenbrunner (who already wrote some reports about our loudspeakers) and Dipl.-Ing Klaus Sigl. They were eager to have a glimpse at the system that we were setting up for the Munich High End 2019.
They brought some music, we had other. The music styles covered a really wide range and the weather contributed a lot to make it relaxing, not just 'hard' work.

Sitting on the balcony we discussed the technical behind the projects and about the system considered as a whole.

There were some surprises, but the overall comment of the persons was positive. I know, You (reader of this post) have read these kind of sentences everywhere... but believe me. I know the person (Aschenbrunner), who was talking in front of me, and we are always quite frank to each other when we meet, then, no need of bullshitting each other: when it is good it is good, when it is not, then it is a shit. Curious?
Well... allow me to post these comments in German language.

Talking about our new Gran Gioia 2x10 loudspeakers:
"Zum Klang fällt mir gerade der Begriff „Musikerlebnis“ ein - exakt dies passiert beim Hören mit den Lautsprechern von Blumenhofer Acoustics. Und je größer diese sind - so wie die hier in Rede stehende Gran Goia 2 x 10 - um so größer ist das Erlebnis"

Talking about the overall system (remember, when it is positive or negative, is always the whole system playing, not just a component):
"Blumenhofer, Kronzilla, Cammino? Das bewegt Emotionen!!"


Well, this comment was stolen in a quiet minute, drinking caffe and talking about something completely different ;-)

Penwerk's Review


Mr. Arno Verhoeven, of the online magazine Penwerk.nl published a review of the 4 Seasons of Vivaldi. The listening sessions have been made on a Tempesta 20.
Here You can read the impressions of Arno in Dutch

It is always nice to hear that people are trusting Blumenhofer for such kind of sensible tasks.

Thank You Arno.

Preview of the Munich High End


We partecipate to the Munich High End 2019, we will present some new products and play good music, not just show music.

Web Page - Reworked completely


It took longer than expected but finally we have completed the face-lift of the web pages. It is far from finished the huge amount of work, but step by step in the next months will be completed.
The main page's structure (https://www.blumenhofer-acoustics.com) stood mainly unchanged, but several parts have been moved

The biggest change is the introduction of subdomains for several parts of the content:
...and so on.

Lots of improvements are just under the hood, metatags are not jet completed, but this will be noticed only by google and the other search engines. 
This made the web page faster and simpler and more easy to maintain. We hope sincerely that You like it.

Klangschloss Greifensee

Blumenhofer's Setup at the Klangschloss.ch 2018

Our Swiss distributor, Soundrevolution.ch participated to the Klangschloss in Greifensee, near Zürich.

At this show we shared the big room with another company, Illusonic. This made the whole thing very relaxing: half an hour to present the system with the music, half an hour to discuss with customers outside... or drinking a cup of caffe...

Public was at a very high musical level, presentations were amazing, location was gorgeous… and we had a beautiful weather ;-)

The setup was composed by:
- Merging Nadac 8 channel DAC-Preamplifier with external power supply
- Gato Audio CD Player
- Gato Audio Mono Power Amplfiiers
- Whole cabling by Cammino
- Decouplers from Omicron
- Loudspeakers Genuin FS 1 MK 2 from Blumenhofer
- Rack studied and developed by us in Attalens
From the pictures in the gallery of Soundrevolution (here) You can have more information about the components and how they have been connected in our setup

We only had digital music, played with a Roon-based control. It was the first time since longer time that browsing the titles on the iPad gave a certain analogue feeling. I will investigate Roon as soon as I'll be back from the Munich High End Show 2018.
One (or rather 4) important appointments during the show were the 4 lectures from specialists. They invited me to be one of these lecturer and I used the opportunity to tell some stories about horn and our understanding of horns. Here You can download it and get a short feeling, of what I presented to the public. Honestly I was expecting optimistically 8-10 persons in the public. No. The room was full. More than 40 people were there listening to what I intended to tell them. Challenging has been the Q&A session after the lecture.

We all enjoyed the show at the Klangschloss and the great engagement of Marcus to have a great show in the amazing avenue. Looking forward for the Klangschloss 2019.
In the meantime You can enjoy here some pictures of the 2018 event, in the web pages of Soundrevolution
