Opening of Club Ideal in Augsburg - 2010

Sometimes there are some special projects that we like. This was one of those. The owner of the Club Ideal in Augsburg in the Gögginger Str. 22 loves music and wanted a high end Night Club. It has not been difficult for Andreas and Ramona to persuade us to this project. It was worth it! Really! This is not a new product we will put on the market, but no Night Club can deliver a better sound. There, at the Club Ideal you can enjoy the Blumenhofer-Philosophy on your skin. Have Fun!!

Pro-Ject - Little Man got big - Event in Walkertshofen 2010

Was the event at Blumenhofer on the 27th and 28th of November 2010 directly at Blumenhofer. We showed how the small gear of Pro-Ject Audio is able to deliver biggest results.

In the organization of the event we did not consider the start of the Christmas markets in the south of Germany and therefore we have not been able to grant Pro-Ject the public it deserved.

ATR offered one USB Box, which already found the winner, he has been contacted by e-mail. We have come Cantuccini left and for sure they will not become old in the drawer.

On Sunday we used the pauses between the visitors to think about some Projects and Ideas we have in mind: some nice perspectives have started to grow in our minds... I will not tell anything more, but really soon you will find some results on these same pages :-)
stay connected!!!

Analog Audio Forum in Krefeld 2010

2010_10_03-Analog-Audio-Forum-logo
It was a long weekend: on the first day we made the setup until 2:00 in the morning and this after a long trip. The people and their warmth payed us off: our presentations, each with its own personality, convinced. - Room Erfolg: Jürgen Fuchs and Uwe Trabert presented a setup consisting of MastersounD preamplifier and 300B mono blocks connected to a big Fun 20. Their source was the turntable of Roi Borges from Portugal. - Room Begeisterung: Volker Bohlmeier has been able to create a special atmosphere and his blues and his warm music let the people stay in the room for longer than usual. - Conference room of the AAA (Analog Audio Association): unexpected. On Friday, short before the beginning of the show, the setup was not yet decided... good chance I had a Fun 17 with me, the people of the AAA decided to use it. In the conference room have been lectured lot of information and examples about music, recording and sound. The room was usually really quite full! Thanks a lot to the whole organising team and to Rainer Bergmann for the perfect event.

ACF Audio Analogue and Tube Audio Show

Located in 8 diffrent rooms you found the highlights for Dutch Analogue and Tube gear.

Blumenhofer’s Fun 17 and Genuin FS 3 played with Leben amps and Accuphase cd-players

This took place on the 1st and 2nd of october 2010 at the Edisonstraat 12, 3261LD  Oud-Beijerland the Netherlands.
                        
It was a mixture show between 10 distributors showing their gear in crossed configurations and great cooperation. The Blumenhofers act great with Leben this was his first choise of the organiser. Since he also is a dealer of Verity loudspeakers and my Octave amps are the only tube amps with enough power for this speakers Marco, our distributor for the Netherlands, agreed with him.

Top Audio, Milano 2010

It was not a concert, but there were 2 concerts. Tom enjoyed both of them, I only one.
It was our first experience with the new distributor and I can only count it positive, no doubt. It is amazing how two people in the same business might have that different way of doing and different stiles in their work.

The biggest surprise for me was seeing that lot of people already knew our brand, more than I expected: the work of the last years is paying off :-)

And then really really a lot of very charming meetings with new and old friends congratulating for the sound in our room: no surprise, we were playing with MastersounD 845 Compact and T+A CD Player on Nordost cables, only the best. On our side, we brought a Genuin FS 3, which played, the Fun 17 and the Genuin FS 4.2 have only been shown statically. In the showroom there was a Satellite Mini as well, lot of people asked us if we plan to produce it again... who knows.

Max Schlundt in Stilwerk in Berlin, an extraordinary venue, 2010


from the 3rd until the 22nd of September in Berlin in Stilwerk, Max Schlundt presented our products in his IFA-Parallel event. We brought him the Clara Luna for which should be taken an appointment; the Genuin FS 1, the Genuin FS 3 and the Fun 17 were on the contrary ready for play anytime. At Max event there have been some interesting panel discussion on several arguments concerning the world of HiFi nowadays, and the changes happened in the last years from the vinyl to the streamer’s era. We unfortunately did not have the chance to participate and listen to the lessons, but Max told us that they have been a success. ==> musical Value of popular music: based on some Examples ==> Status of the Recording techniques: limits of the music reproduction ==> Designed in Europe-Made in China? ==> Solo-Piano: Improvisation at the big Bechstein-Piano ==> Music sources in the modern times: -Vinyl revival, -Music download, -End of the CD? ==> Home cinema- Cinema at home about Pros and Cons of free availability ==> Music press - Protector of the end user or marketing instrument? It has (and in a certain way it still is) a great event. Pass by at Max venue, you will enjoy great music

From now on longer spykes

After some intensive testing we decide not to include the covers for the dishes of the spykes anymore: they are not contributing in a positive way to the sound of the speakers in comparison to the steel dishes alone. In order to preserve the distance from the floor of the Fun 17 and big Fun 20 we introduce longer spykes. The suggestion came from Volker Bohlmeier of Einstein Audio.

New foot for the Genuin FS 3

Since the introduction of the big Fun 20 and big Fun 17, we are not more really satisfied with the overall look of the Genuin FS 3. Then it is time to change a little bit, to make the design more modern and more elegant.
This design change reflects more on the overall look alike of the loudspeaker: we change the foot and we make the horn a little bit smaller. What a big improvement!!
Does it affect the sound? No, not really, everything sounds exactly like before. Enjoy the new look…
