News about the Fun 17
Ken Micallef from Stereophile.com magazine, paid a visit to the booth of Alex Soundtech during the AXPONA show in Florida. His feedback was positive. Here You can read the note on that visit
The exhibition has not ended yet, and today, on the second day, there were a lot of visitors, press and customers. Unexpectedly we got a huge interest in Blumenhofer!!!Now there is no time to go into detail, but a lot of different people are interested in Blumenhofer.There were a lot of individual listenings and questions.Our system was one of the most musical systems at the show. Almost all the visitors told us about it.
Alex (https://alexsoundtech.com) received very good coverage and appreciation from customers and dealers at the Florida Audio Expo a few weeks ago and after that the coverage of the room was more than expected. That's great... You can read some of the comments in the links below. Here there are some more pictures
Enjoy the Music (Best of FLAX 2022 Award)
The first batch of new Blumenhofer woofers has been delivered yesterday. Looking forward to deliver You, the necessary tools for Your next time.
We actually had already some pre-series woofer in house that allowed us to deliver the first customers. And this delivery was expected already long ago. But... delayed due to Coronavirus.
Finally we are getting there again. After 2 years development and several iterations, the new 16" woofer entirely born on our experience and research. Air dried paper membrane. 8Ω and 16Ω for several projects. 2 versions, one for subwoofer application one for stereo application. We will soon be able to restart the production of the Genuin FS 1, which will become MK 3, because there are very big changes connected to the woofer.
Alexander Aschenbrunner from HiFi Stars spent some times with our Genuin FS 2 and had the chance to enjoy a lot of music. Apparently he will not give the loudspeaker back.
If You are curious about his report, You can read it at page 62-65 on the 34 issue of the magazine or here the pdf of the article in German and here in English
I had the chance to pay a visit to Mr. Aschenbrunner, the journalist writing for HiFi Stars at the Silvia Oelkers Verlag. Mr. Aschenbrunner is a direct person and preferred to have just his system depicted without people.
Despite an article about the Genuin FS 2 is going to be published in the next weeks, we did not talk at all about that: we discussed about music and its reproduction. It was an amazing afternoon that ended in an enjoyable dinner at a local high class restaurant.
Armin Kern, our sales representative in the northern part of Germany, presented nearly our complete product portfolio at the Mitteldeutsche HiFi Tage in Leipzig.
He just told me that the success was amazing and that there will be some follow up in the near future.
Ufff...geschafft, wir haben die Messe erfolgreich beendet und hatten sehr guten Zuspruch! Armin hat wieder mal die Bude gerockt!...Schlagzeuge knallen lassen...Kontrabässe schnurren lassen und so manches musikalisches Highlight an's "Hörorgan" gebracht, einfach Geil! Die Blumis sind und bleiben einfach der Hammer.
Here You can see the few pictures I received.
Likehifi.de invited his readers to have a try to Blumenhofer Acoustics. Here
On the 19th of November, Stefan Wörmer from HiFi Wörmer held an event at his show room in Bispingen. Performing were the Genuin FS 2 on MastersounD electronics with ZeroUno DAC.
This is the statement of Stefan:
Klasse statt Masse!
Alle die mit uns auf Kaperfahrt fahren….so könnte eine Einleitung für die 1. Hausmesse vom „ Hifi Wörmer Der gute Ton“ beginnen…
Keine aalglatten Kisten mit beliebiger Aufschrift waren am 19. und 20. 11. dort zu hören sondern echte Charakterköpfe von Blumenhofer Acoustics die mit Ihren aufgesetzten Hörnern wie Zyklopen aus der Ilias zu entsprungen schienen oder die Monoendstufen von MastersounD die mit ihren intensiv strahlenden 845 Röhren festliche Stimmung verbreiteten.
Im Abendlicht hätte man nach dem 3. Drink auch darauf kommen können, das ein riesiger Wal einen aus der Tiefe des Raumes anvisiert….
Die Zuhörer mit Bärten ( denn nur die kommen bekanntlicherweise mit auf Kaperfahrt) hatten da gut Schmunzeln und genossen die Magie der direkt beheizten Trioden und Hocheffizens Lautsprecher , die in Norddeutschland zum raren Strandgut zählen dürften!
Wer also echte Alternativen sucht zum industriellen Audio Einerlei, setze sein Beiboot zu Wasser und segele nach Bispingen….
Stefan bears a very fine sinn for humor and a very colorful way of expressing the ideas and the concepts. Really enjoyable indeed.

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.
