Genuin FS 3 MK 2

Our classic reborn. Now with 10in-25cm woofer and harmonic construction.

After 10 years our Genuin FS 3 needed overhauling: it was missing the new technologies. We wanted to introduce the harmonic constructions, and… our new driver.
The Genuin FS 3 MK 2 now bears much bigger components, we developed extra for it a new 10" - 25cm paper woofer and the compression driver shows as well new membranes and a brand new horn, developed on purposes to match the compression driver behind it and the bigger woofer.
It is faster, it goes deeper, it is even more friendly to all kind of power amplifiers.

Audio Show Warsaw

I do not want to say how good we were, and how I enjoyed the show. It was really hard work! They have been really long days and really rich of new experiences and lessons.
As usual we met several people and some friends came as well from my hometown. Really, I enjoyed every single bit of these days…

The first frightening thing was seeing the room of our distributor: full up to the roof with lots of material to be distributed in the 5 or 6 rooms he rented to present his several brands. You can see some pictures.
Then we got the room at 8:00 PM to start the show at 2:00 PM the next day. I tell You, it was a run!

But in the end, despite the problems that affected the setup, the system played.
During the show I had the chance to present the Foné LP and SACD collection, I tell You, great recordings, great philosophy behind them. And, most of all, a real music lover realizing them.
These are some of the titles of Foné that I presented:

  • 4 Seasons of Vivaldi, performed by Salvatore Accardo
  • Campanella of Paganini, performed by Salvatore Accardo on the Stradivari Vesuvio
  • Frescobaldi per Noi, Music of Frescobaldi interpreted by an Italian quartet
  • Vir Dei Benedictus, a fantastic recording which I chose by mistake and hit me for his musicality
  • Musica Nuda, well… there is nothing to say about this, absolutely a Must Have

We were not the best sound of the show, and we did not achieve the performance level of last year, but the people were satisfied and loved the sound of our system.
In the end, I've been able to grab the attention of the people with a fable for music and a common understanding of what does mean to listen to music.
Henk & Marja from 6moons.com spent a longer time listening to the music I was proposing them, taking pictures of each single cover.
Ken Kessler said that he would be interested to listen to our gears at his place… in case that we get a distributor in the UK ;-) - Stay tuned

And the most amazing thing… a friend whom I did not expect to meet, peered into my room during setup attracted by the tones and the musicality and was as surprised to meet me as I was surprised to meet him: Lorenzo Sanavio from MastersounD

All in all, I must say that it was a good show… and I'm really looking forward to be there again in one year time!

Curious about the setup we played? Curious about more pictures of this fantastic venue? Here You can find more information and pictures about Blumenhofer in Warsaw in 2016!

Here the 6moons.com pictures of our room.

Sintonie Musicali - Lanciano

That was amazing and I was really surprised by the show. And the concert of Paolo Fresu? I've loved to hear it!

I think that by now You know my way of thinking: always the smallest possible loudspeaker to play an astonishing setup in the room available.
Here they had me confirmed in a bigger room… and in the end for some kind of problems I just had a small room. With really big loudspeakers, the Genuin FS 1 MK 2.
I do not want to complain, but just to tell You, for my normal way of doing, I would have got a Tempesta 20, for example. Or maximum, a Genuin FS 3 MK 2… but a Genuin FS 1 MK 2 was promised and I accepted the challenge.

As I entered the room the system was already playing and warming up… holy s**t, the bass was long like an aircraft carrier, the 3D feeling was blurred like a gray cat in a foggy day.
Let's try to set up differently and use the short side of the room… nonononononono: the rack was to wide to fit on that side with the whole components.
Back to the long side and let's start work.
I pulled all registers and I tried to use all the strangest solutions that fell into my mind to get the sound I liked. Lots of "tools" found there to get the right sound were hidden behind curtains and couches and inside cabinet… in the end it worked ;-)

In the end I've been able to achieve a sound that satisfied me… in both rooms!!! Given the boundary conditions, the limitation of room and system and the fact that I've not been allowed to use my toys, I think I got the best out of what was available… with lots of headroom for the joy of the customers, when they will get the loudspeakers at their home ;-)

I'm talking about 2 rooms:
Setup Room 184 - my room:
- Marantz SA-10 SACD Player for the first time in Italy
- EAT C-Sharp Turntable with Ortofon Cadenza Red cartridge
- EAR Yoshino MC Phono Preamplifier
- MastersounD Spettro Line Preamplifier
- MastersounD 845 Monoblocks Plus
- Genuin FS 1 MK 2 Loudspeakers

Setup Room 136 - MastersounD's room:
- Marantz SACD Player
- M2Tech DAC and Streamer
- MastersounD Compact 300B integrated stereo amplifier
- Genuin FS 3 MK 2

My feedback to the show? I was happy. It was a huge amount of work to setup and perform.
The public participating to the event was really highly interested and expert in terms of listening and music loving. Some of them have really impressive systems at home and invited me to meet them there, the next time.
And we played a lot of music without any kind of limitation in terms of what to play and volume. The system and the room in the end permitted it.

Giulio Cesare Ricci from Fonè presented some LPs:
- Musica Nuda with Magoni and Spinetti
- 5 LPs remastered from the original tape of Vaso Rossi (one leading Italian Rocker)
And we played together some of the tracks of his last productions, as example the remastered live album of Vasco Rossi at concert decibel level: people were rocking with closed eyes in the chairs and it was really involving and… like being there!!

Well… lot of music, lot of emotion, lot of talks and lots of amazing moments. Thank You Marco for the great show and the great organization.
If You are curious, here there are more pictures I shot at the event.

Small anticipation? I think in a Theater in March… not far from Lanciano… we will make a Mini-Sintonie with something big paired… stay tuned!!

Röhrentage at MuSiCa NoVa - Schweig bei Nürnberg

LogoMN-hifi


Harald Pensel, from MuSiCa NoVa started his regular RöhrenTage events with our Genuin FS 3 MK 2.
It is an impressive studio, what he presents to the customers and the choices are maybe even too much!

His statement of the day was:

War toll, viel mehr Besucher als erwartet


That means that it was good and he enjoyed the day and he had more people than expected.

Here You can see some more pictures
