Göteborg HiFi Show

Göteborg-Show-Logo


We were in room Björkö, in the boot of OldSchoolHiFi at the Scandic Opalen Hotel.
The Setup was impressive, pure analog sources:
- Pluto Turntable with Pluto Tonearm and Ikeda 9TT cartridge
- Audiomat Phono Preamplifier
- Reed Turntable with Reed Tonearm and Van den Hul Condor Cartridge
- Octave Phono Preamplifier
- Audiomat integrated Amplifier
- Cammino cabling
- Cammino Power Harmonizer
- Loudspeakers Genuin FS 3 MK 2.

The biggest problem we had was the electricity quality. The room had very old unearthed sockets. Fact is that we had quite some grounding problems and an enormous hmm during setup…
…and these problems have been solved: we got our power from the corridor with a 15m long power cable brought in the local warehouse.

Despite these problems, we have been able to reach a quite satisfactory level of sound reproduction quality with that impressive analogue setup and the people were pleased by the sound that put the Music in focus…

This event has been possible thanks to our Dutch distributor, Marco de Wilde: he took over were Jan could not be part of the event. We are getting a nice Blumenhofer family that support each other, when for any personal reason some of us can’t, the other jump in. This is friendship!!

Report about our Munich High End on Part Time Audiophile

pta16

Panagiotis visited us in our booth at the Munich High End 2016. He was surprised how well the Blumenhofer are playing with triodes and the pairing with Air Tight. Old style HiFi is simply great. He did not want to believe that the big loudspeaker in the window was meant for a customer. In fact it is, soon I'll post some pictures of this fabulous Cinema near Munich.

Munich High End 2016

2016_05_08-Munich-High-End-Banner

Lot of stories to tell. Lot of satisfactions in several fields.

Miura San (we met him already in Guangzhou 2009), the owner and founder of Air Tight, paid us a visit and spent half an hour with us listening to music. I had the feeling that he enjoyed it.
One Polish journalist came and had a longer talk with me. In the end it came out that he reviewed the Genuin FS 3 MK 2 and dropped his comment on the speaker: "It is a f***ing good loudspeaker, what would You wish more?"
Giulio Cesare Ricci, owner of Fonè, a small but really fine Italian recording company, and organizer of the Gran Galà dell'Alta Fedeltà expositions in Italy, came as well to our room. His idea was to sit down and relax, taking a short nap and saying some circumstances word about our equipment… he could not sleep, at the first tone he jumped on the chair flabbergasted by the quality of the reproduction of his own LPs. We made a short presentation in his room and then he came back several times since! And… he wishes for a cooperation with us in Padova and Milano, where he will present some new records of a famous Italian Rock Star.
An american Tenor, husband of Mr. Jason Victor Serinus from Stereophile, spent longer time in our room and came back several times. In the end I have been shortly interviewed by his husband and received a positive feedback on Stereophile.
A Russian Music lover, who came to our room after each listening in other rooms, just to get his reference back again and start for the next room.
An Englishman, who was surprised that such an 'affordable' system was giving real music, where lot of the others were just asleep and wrong. He spent longer time talking with us to know where to start from to get his system working in the proper way.
A Dutchman who was jumping on the chair for some music and was romantic engaged by other music, really emotional.

What else, there are lot of stories, these are just some that stick more in the head. Other will come up during the next days. Looking forward, positively looking forward for the upcoming news…
Meanwhile, You can have a look at our event pictures here
