Klangschloss Greifensee

Blumenhofer's Setup at the Klangschloss.ch 2018

Our Swiss distributor, Soundrevolution.ch participated to the Klangschloss in Greifensee, near Z├╝rich.

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

Logo-Ultimate-AV-Kft


Ultimate AV from Budapest is our new distributor for Hungary. He is specialised in high quality systems and therefore his choice fell on our loudspeakers to be able to deliver to his most demanding customers the most proficient system.
We spent a good time together to learn from each-other the special tricks needed to setup a system in the perfect way. …and I enjoyed some special Hungarian Gulash!! ;-)

We introduce the Gran Gioia MK 2

Gran-Gioia-MK-2

No need for big marketing slogans, no need to tell You how many prototypes of the horn we built, no need to tell You what nor why. As usual, no compromises… but we collected good ideas what could come next ;-) Today we will play the Gran Gioia MK 2 for the first time in public. At the Munich High End 2017 Room F224… there is no better moment to introduce new products.

We discontinue Gioia, Gran Gioia and Clara Luna

Clara-Luna gran-gioia gioia

After several years we discontinue the Gioia, the Gran Gioia and the Clara Luna. The reasons are different but absolutely understandable. The Clara Luna: one of the components is no more available and there is no possibility to find an alternative without going in the MK 2 version. The Gran Gioia: in the last years we have made huge steps forward in the construction and in the knowledge about how to build horns and phase plugs. The Gioia: very simple, the costs related to the construction of the Gioia are just a little bit lower than the costs related to the Gran Gioia. This would put the Gioia in a very similar price category to the Gran Gioia and would force us to artificially increase the price of the Gran Gioia. We are not keen to these pricing games just to avoid internal competitions. We aim at giving the best value for money to our customers.

Sound-of-the-valve-logo


Our Milan dealer, Enea Spinelli from Spinelli HiFi, participated to the Milano Hi-Fidelity show this year. An event from the Sound of the Valve by Stefano Zaini, this event presents HiFi in Milano since more than 16 years.
It has been an amazing weekend with some very good music and food. I enjoyed the chance as well to test some of the music for the Munich High End.
No big news in the setup but for the new racks of Solidsteel and feet of Omicron. Nothing very mind blowing, but a lot of small things to increase the level of the presentation.

Octave and Marantz electronics, Transrotor and Rega sources, Cammino cabling and power treatment. Blumenhofer loudspeakers.

If You wich to see more pictures You can enjoy them here.
