Genuin FS 1 MK 3

Harmonic construction and simplification with a gorgeous air dried Blumenhofer own 16in-38cm woofer.

When our 16" woofer reached maturity, we finally decided to upgrade the Genuin FS 1 to MK 3 level. The look and structure are essentially the same. The changes are in the inside. The new air dried paper membrane is moved by a really powerful Alnico magnet. This brings the mid-bass of our Genuin FS 1 MK 3 to a complete new level of quality. More bass, more deepness, more richness in the midrange.

Norddeutsche HiFi Tage - Hamburg

2017_02_04-Logo+Skyline-450


Hamburg and the Norddeutsche HiFi Tage are always worth a trip. Probably I've already mentioned: Hamburg is one of the cities where I could think about a good living. Better than a lot others.
Well, I'll not mention about the music and the higher and higher quality of the show. It is worth visiting, but believe me, You will need the whole time to be sure to find (and then enjoy) the rooms worth Your time: there are really a lot.
We played:
- The Pick Up - Einstein Cartridge
- The Tonarm - Einstein Tonarm
- Air Force 3 - Tech Das Turntable
- The Phono Preamp - Einstein Phono Preamp
- The Tune - Einstein Integrated Power Amp
- Tempesta 20 - Loudspeakers Blumenhofer
- The Power Harmonizer - Cammino power filter
- Reference series Cables - from Cammino

It is a big system, but if You consider the main parts, Loudspeakers and power amp, it is still in a reasonable price range.
As usual, blues, blues, rock, a small bit of classics, blues and then country, country blues, electro rock, country rock, blues rock, folk (but not too much) and then baroque, and orchestras…
Good music, good sound, really enjoyable for even longer than the 2 days of the show.

The organizer (Ivonne) put a basket of prizes together and we offered a set of Mini loudspeakers (here the news), they were the most valuable price of the event. These pair of Minis have been won by Ingo B**h. I hope he will enjoy them as well as I'm enjoying mine here in my home.
If You are curious about some pictures, please here You can find them.
We are curious about the 2018 edition ;-)
