Even this year we participated to the analog Audio Forum in Krefeld.
As difference from the usual shows, this time we decided to have a bigger room to play bigger loudspeakers, and we played the Gioia.
Like last year, the room of the organizer used a Gran Gioia for its demonstration and it has been very well accepted.
In our room the setup consistsed of:
- Rui Borges - Uno Turntable
- Einstein Audio Components - The Turntable's choice Phono Preamplifier
- Einstein Audio Components - The Tube Preamplifier
- Einstein Audio Components - The Light in the Dark Stereo Power Amplifier
- Blumenhofer Acoustics - Gioia Loudspeakers
- Cammino HP - complete power supply and cabling including its extraordinary Power Harmonizer
On the first day we had a straight setup, it played, but it was not possible to turn up the volume. The people were already satisfied, but we did not. We knew what was reachable with that setup and we reached maximum 60% of that. Not satisfactory. Not at all for us.
In the night from Saturday to Sunday, after a good dinner in a nearby restaurant, we spent half of the night to start from scratch. What a wonder, on the second day, music was playing, finally music was in the room and cheered our ears. Thanks to Claudio and Marco for the big effort.
Thanks to Hanna as well for taking care about the customers and to Jürgen from HiFi Studio Fuchs for the LPs.
And most of all thank You to the whole AAA Team for the great organization of the event and the great support during the days of the show!!! See You again next year!

Our best compliments to Marco of Music2, for the fantastic organization, and the wonderful setup. Take Your time to take a look at the pictures, they present our products in an astonishing good way.

Take a look at the pictures, it is worth it… meanwhile, we will wait for the portrait of the setup, a painting by René Visker of the Ritsart Gallery in Maassluis, The Netherlands

Our CD has impressed the international press even faster than expected. In the last issue You can find at page 43 a report about our Groove into Bits project. Enjoy Your reading!! Here You can download the Dutch pdf of the article
Thursday, 3 May 2012
The idea to participate has borne by chance during one of my visit to STS-Digital to evaluate the quality of the Groove into Bits CD and discuss some more points about marketing. And this is the question we had: how can we promote the brands in the most effective ways. Then we crosschecked our resources and decided to go again an unconventional way: we have the Blumenhofer Acoustics CD, why not to sell it at the show?
Some dazzling some phone call after we had the space at the fair and the equipment for displaying and playing the CDs.
The electronic of Pro-Ject has been supplied by ATR, the cabling and the power supply harmonizer by Cammino-HP. We used the stand as static display and as point of contact for the people interested in our products. And the interest was big. Nearly every person took a picture of our Gran Gioia: a great eye catcher!
During the show we had several visit of old friends and new potential distributors.
The visit of Van den Hul himself, the owner of the famous Van den Hul brand, brought some emotion to Mr. Trevisanello, the owner of Cammino. Mr. Van den Hul appreciated the look of our Gran Gioia.
Mr. Heinz Lichtenegger, director of Project, has been pleased by the quality of our CDs and recordings.
As usual we made lot of pictures, you can see them here:
Based on the same quarter wavelength technology of the Fun 13 it is a continuation of that development.
High quality MDF wood and an astonishing sound quality, available starting today. Have Fun!
We already informed You about this project.
It was extraordinary and it has borne by chance.
We met in Walkertshofen last September and started listening for music of all kinds. Of course on LP. Spontaneous was the question… why don't we master it to a CD trying to keep the analog feeling of the turntable. Then, the task was set, how to perform it? Simple? Conny Englmeier started playing DJ, Fritz connected his Marantz mastering equipment, Lars set up the Kanzy power amplifier, and Tom connected our Wiki: if we need a monitor speaker why not the best one available? Marco had a Acoustic Signature Ascona with an SME tonearm and a Soundsmith cartridge in the trunk of the car. The setup was done. The songs were chosen and we started the recording process. It took us a longer time than expected but was fun. After hours we were eating in the restaurant and René suggested to name it after the project: Grove into Bits was what we did. From LP to CD. Extraordinary.

He wrote a very charming article about his experience with the Wiki, and called the article for Music Emotion "in Wiki Wonderland", here is the post about that article and here is the article in Dutch.
But not all of us are able to read Dutch (I'm not able at all), therefore René agreed to translate to English and Michael of Astin Trew agreed to support us with this translation (thank You René and thank You Michael). Here You can read it in English, well it is just the text, without pictures, but it it worth reading. Enjoy.

On the 31st of March and the 1st of April our Dutch dealer East West Audio Shop organized a great show with one key role player: Blumenhofer Acoustics!
Set-ups were made with the Fun's 10 and 13, Big Fun 17, Genuin FS4.2, Genuin FS3.2 and Genuin FS1. Main source during this event was streaming audio, except for one set-up (and this set-up had it's private room to show the real meaning of dynamics): Blumenhofer Genuin FS1, Grandinote mono-amps, Octave Phonomodule and an Acoustic-Signature turntable with a van den Hul cartridge. All the cables were supplied by Live Cable. This set-up almost made us forget we were listening to reproduced music, closer to life is almost impossible.
A very big surprise for our visitors was the set-up in the main hall with the Genuin FS3.2. Powered by an Octave HP300 mkII and a RE 280 power amplifier this set-up was able to fill the complete hall with a very good open 3- dimensional sound with lot's of dynamics. No big surprise for us of course, but to keep in mind: this room was 10 meters wide and 20 meters long! A very big compliment for this set-up. The source in this set-up was streaming audio with Arcam and Calyx DAC's.
Again we were also noticing that Blumenhofer and T+A is a very good marriage, the Genuin FS4.2 and Big Fun 17 almost seemed to be made for this electronics, according to our visitors: nothing but big thumbs up!
As a ''little'' surprise we introduced the Blumenhofer Fun 10, this €975 a piece loudspeaker was playing with the all-in-one CVR-100 from Audio Block (€799), this complete set-up showed visitors that even the smallest Blumenhofer loudspeaker is still a real Blumenhofer loudspeaker. While playing in that same 200m2 room there was no lack of bass or definition at all! We foresee a very good future for this new range, almost impossible to beat in it's price range.
As with every show also this one had to come to an end, but we already agreed, this is going to be an event that will return every year.
This show was organized by Blumenhofer dealer East West Audio shop, Blumenhofer, Octave and Acoustic-Signature distributor Music2, T+A and Arcam distributor Audiac, STS-Digital and Music-Emotion magazine

The enjoyable warm voice of Ingram Washington in his CD/LP "What a difference a day makes" brings back sonorities and inspirations from vinyl and piano bar atmosphere.
Useless for me to stress that it has been mastered with Blumenhofer's Loudspeakers :-)

and on the analog side there was
- Roksan Xerses turntable

Rarely was our room not full and not visited. The contacts have been several and well promising. The cooperation with Grandinote, Astin Trew, Cammino and Acoustics Signature has been fruitful. The results will be fruitful as well.
