Genuin FS 2 MK 2

Big sound: precision, speed, and depth. Tailored for everyone.

The new 12" woofer of the Genuin FS 2 MK 2 has the same technologies like the 16" woofer of the Genuin FS 1 MK 3. A powerful AlNiCo magnet moves a very good sounding paper membrane. The result is an improved Genuin FS 2 that then deserves the MK 2 tag. Structurally the loudspeaker is the same has the same dimensions and the same look. The sound has become more rich, the result and the improvements are in the same fields like the improvements on the Genuin FS 1 MK 3: more bass, more deepness and improved richness in the midrange.

Report from the Swiss High End 2014 in Z├╝rich

2014_10_17-VisitUs-HighEnd-Swiss

We were there, and we had fun!!
We changed everything and in the end everything was even better than last year. What shall I write, the best sign of success is seeing people staying in the room long time and... something I take with me? A customer brought a CD of the Toccata and Fugue of Bach, the classic organ piece. This time I plaid loud and in the end I had such a fantastic feeling of satisfaction and completeness that I only seldom remember. That was music!

The power amplification: Octave V70SE with integrated in the Power Amplifier
Analog source: Dr. Feickert Woodpecker with Tonearm from Jelco and Lyra Delos Cartridge
Digital source: CD Transport from Audio Tonale with DAC from Hegel

Of course the whole cabling from Cammino including the power harmonizer.
If You wish to have a short view of what we did, take a look at the pictures here

Vinylfuif - the party on vinyl at Audio21 in Wapvenweld

2014_10_11-Vinylfuif

These are the Words of Mark van Braam of Audio 21:

"The 12th October, Audio21 in Wapenveld NL held their vinyl-party. In three listening rooms, three sets, the first Gran Gioia with the new preamp of Sonore AC, in the second the FS2 ‘patchwork’ which is probably the most special pair of the world, also with the amps of Sonore AC. The third listening room was filled with the fun13, amp of Pathos Acoustics. And of course vinyl was always the source; Pluto and Dr. Feickert were ‘singing’. Outside in a tent, the local vinyl store showed their new stock. About 150 people came to this charming event, in the most charming hifi-shop of the Netherlands. Next year, the first weekend of may, the second edition of the ‘Vinylfuif’. The word ‘fuif’ is difficult to translate… an other word for ‘party’ which was used in the 80’s."

Sonore and Pluto Demonstration

Mark van Braam of Audio 21 told me:

"I drove to the south of Holland with the gear, to let hear a group of people (about 40 during the day) the difference between the ‚standard’ Pluto motor and the special ‚Sonore’ motor. Using the FS2. I am the very.. big tall guy, 10th photo, with the white shirt at the left"


Marco de Wilde of Music2 told me:

"Yesterday they were flabbergasted by the FS2’s. Over a 1000 m3 of room (21 by 10 by 5 meters) and a real full range sound! They keep amasing me..."



The whole setup was based on Sonore AC gear using our Genuin FS 2 as a front end, the patchwork one, and according to the words of Mark and what he is doing in these days, it worked out to be a really successful event!!
