Guangzhou HiFi Show 2009

It is always nice and fruitful to pay a visit to our friends in far east and like last year we had an appointment to the Guangzhou exhibition. The show has been very big with lot of show rooms and plenty of goods. I think that more than 5 floor of the hotel were full of people loving HiFi.
I have to tell you what happened:
Mr. Miura San, Managing Director of Air Tight Japan, came to our boot and was so pleased by the sound of our speakers in our room that he asked to test them on his system in his room. We brought them to Air Tight's room and connected them to the ATM-2001S driven by the ATE-2001. He enjoyed and we did as well. It was only a pity that the room had a terrible acoustics for the basses...
The second amazing event was when During a walk trough the exposition, I've heard the italian song "Bella Ciao" performed by an enchanting female voice playing in a corner on a 250W Mark Levinson power amplifier.

Mastersound: Lorenzo used our big Fun 20 with his 845 Evolution
Sutra: Boris and Stefano played on a Fun 17 with their Digital power amplifier

Review of the big Fun 20 by Srajan Eban of 6moons

After an unexpected meeting in China, we fixed an appointment with Srajan Eban of 6moons.
As usual in the last minutes, but right on time we reached Chardonne in Switzerland. Nice situated on the Geneva Lake.

He decided to test the big Fun 20 because:
- the Genuin FS 3 had been already tested in some papers
- the Fun 17 was not jet burned in

The report has not been positive, and this is luck for the company: we were not yet ready for the international market and its demands, this would have taken us to bigger problems!!!
Furthermore the points Srajan focused on have been really good suggestions to improve our products and grow a lot in quality!

Here you can read the report.

I must say something: if you are disappointed reading it, remember, we did our homework and improved and corrected the flaws Srajan appointed. Come and listen yourself!!
- we improved the crossover changing one component that eliminated the echo Srajan was talking about (yes there was an echo and yes this was entirely our mistake)
- we improved the internal wiring
- we had to slightly change the compression chamber of the mid high driver due to a sub-supplier shortage: this lead to an unexpected improvement
- we changed the supplier of certain Caps

After these changes
Stereo, a leading german magazine has chosen the big Fun 20 to become reference speaker. All the customers received the improved version of the big Fun 20.

Listening Session: Vexo, Italy

Giampaolo and Carlo of Vexo brought us the top of their power amplifiers, the 300B and the 2A3.

They are real sound machines and the 2A3 plays like a charm. Take a closer look at these “toys” for playing music, it is worth.

Milano High End 2009

The first show with Dimitri of MadForMusic as first dealer for Blumenhofer in Italy.
At this show we presented the Fun 17: it has been a really amazing experience, we received a really good welcome from all of them, and we enjoyed it.
The Heineken beer has been a fable ;-)
and the sound far far better than we expected!!


Do you want to have Fun? We introduce the big Fun 17 and the big Fun 20

Do you want to have Fun? We made it for you.
The Fun 17 and the big Fun 20 have born.

They convince for the natural sound and the perfect matching speed and coherence between the 2 speakers.
They use innovative concepts for the horn and several kinds of new materials in the construction of the components.

An horn speaker for the mid high coupled with a bass horn speaker in a folded construction:

Have Fun!!
