Yamaha and Blumenhofer at Spinelli in Milano
On the first weekend there was EAR and Blumenhofer and this weekend we played at Spinelli with a source and power amplification of Yamaha. They were the top stereo products the A-S3000 and the CD-S3000. The products were top and the sound matched the quality of the products used.
The whole cabling and power treatment, as usual in our events was completely Cammino.
Some of the people present the week before have come again to enjoy the difference and better understand the quality of the material involved in the presentation. They were not disappointed. The character of the 2 kind of amplification was clearly recognizable.
For me it has been a really successful weekend!! Here the Gallery of the pictures

Burning music at the HiFi Schmiede
The HiFi Schmiede is situated in an idillic village not far from Karlsruhe, in the south west of Germany. In the ancient time there was a smith, an important one for the region. If You visit the store, other than real good music and ambient, You find remainings of this older use of the area.
The focus was music, and lots has been played. The original idea was to have 20 minutes music and then 40 minutes discussions. In the end there was music from the beginning to the end and always again one question in between.
The whole system was composed by:
- Lindemann 825 CD Player
- Rega RP8 Turntable with Quezo cartridge
- Octave Phonomodule
- Octave V110 Power amplifier
- Genuin FS 2
- Cammino cabling and power supply
With these components and with the fantastic LP collection of Mr. Baumer, it is useless to say how good it has been. If You are even just a little bit curious, You can check the pictures on our gallery here

Vedere per credere, sentire per immaginare
Lots of first times this time in Palermo.
First time in Palermo, the first impression was great.
First time Sony 4k projection presentation, wow gorgeous
…first time appeared a Blumenhofer product (and myself) in TV.
Here, You can see the reportage of this interview on YouTube.
Here, You can see the reportage directly embedded in the news. Scroll to 23rd minutes and soon after will start the interview.
All of this happened at Pick-Up HiFi, a 47 years old HiFi institution in Palermo, founded from Father Cefalù which Vincenzo e Fabio are continuing with love and engagement. Here extensive information about the event, in Italian
Besides that, which is only a small part of the huge amount of surprises we enjoyed, there were dozens of beautiful people and beautiful opportunity during the 2 days. Stay tuned to read the review of a listening section on AVMagazine.
The affluence of public has been enthusiastic and the people were really fit on music listening, able to appreciate the quality and ready to give good hints. We had lots of nice talks. If You have the impression that the pictures are of empty rooms, it is because we took them late in the evening when we had already spent all of our strengths
Thank You Vincenzo, Fabio, Carlo for making this possible. See You soon!!
If I made You curious, You can visit Pick-Up HiFi and/or take a look at our gallery of the event

Swiss High End 2013 in Zürich
This was our first participation to the Zürich High End 2013 and I must say it was a really positive surprise. Blumenhofer is in Switzerland an already well known and estimated brand and the public knew what they were looking for. Really enjoyable. Sound Revolution, our distributor for Switzerland has been able to make a very astonishing setup in that room.
The system was composed by:
- Gato Audio CD Player from Denmark
- Hegel Music System DAC with integrated Preamplifier from Norway
- Sauermann Audio Power Amplifier from Germany
- Wireworld and Cammino cabling from USA and Italy
- Cammino H3.1 Power Harmonizer from Italy
- and of course our Genuin FS 2
I must say, it made music and the public liked it really a lot, the comments of the people going out of the room were really cheering and pleased me and the team exposing in Zürich.
Then the spectacular atmosphere created by the artistic tapestry and the very pleasant environment completed the charm. It was a long work, but it was worth it.
A big thank You to André and Gerd for making this possible.
If I made You a bit curious, here You can find the picture gallery.
And here the list of products presented.

Listening session: Sonore AC, Netherlands
Incredible the content of these wooden boxes. I've never heard these kind of power amplifier playing this way. Cock and Arnold from Sonore AC explained us the concept and the ideas behind them and it was really astonishing to understand the deepness of the know how involved and the technical solution adopted to pursue the philosophy behind them trough and trough.
It is always good to learn something.

We discontinue the Genuin FS 5
We originally did not expect a success for this loudspeaker, but sold quite well.
We just decided to discontinue it, because the Tempesta 17 bookshelf delivered the same quality at a much reasonable price

Munich High End 2013
Groove into Bits Vol. 2 comes to the market
On the first day of the Munich High End Fritz de With of STS Digital presented us the Groove into Bits CD Vol. 2.
The CD presents good pieces of music. In the first issue there has been an error on the cover that will be corrected in the reissues of the CD. One song, the one of Bob Dylan, due to rights problems, did not manage to get into the final release of the CD, but it is still in our hearts. Maybe we will be able to add it in the next Groove into Bits.

"Battle of the Best!" Event in Amsterdam at A10 Audio
"horns n'tubes" event at MuSiCa NoVa in Nürnberg
Das Finale Furioso. Thomas Blumenhofer aus dem schönen Walkertshofen im Allgäu baut anerkannterweise mit die besten Hornlautsprecher in Deutschland. Seit geraumer Zeit gibt's sogar durchaus preiswerte Böxchen für den Hörnchen-Einsteiger. Wir spielen sowohl die Einstiegsdrogen als auch die großen Teile für fortgeschrittene Freaks. Die Elektronik ist von mir. MuSiCa NoVa halt, Röhre pur, kompromisslos und dennoch bezahlbar. Als Zuspieler dient zum einen der CD-Player ProMetheuS, ebenfalls aus meiner Manufaktur. Zum anderen kommt ein Plattenspieler von dem angesehenen Berliner Spezialisten Scheu Analog zum Einsatz. Somit können wir glatt sagen: Alles deutsche Wertarbeit.

Inauguration of the Organ in the Church of Bibione
The Church Santa Maria Assunta in Bibione received a new organ from one beloved member of his community, Rino Benedett.
Then we discovered that Fritz de With from STS-Digital has a spleen for organ music and loves to record organs.
Agreements were made and quite fast the decision was taken.
With the support of the community in Bibione the Church has been able to finance the production of the CD of the inaugural concert of the organ.
The CD is only for internal use of the Church and for the local community. You can contact Don Andrea Vena here if You wish to have more information about it.
Under magistral conduction of Maestro Daniel Roth from Saint Sulpice in Paris, the result and the sound were really moving.
These were the music played
This concert was the opening concert for the Summer organ concert season in Bibione.
The Organ comes from the Francesco Zanin company of Codroipo. The site is still in construction but You can reach them here.
Some data of the organ can be read in this document
To perform the recording Fritz de With used a 4 microphone setup, placing 2 microphones in front of the altar directed to the two wings of the organ plus 2 more microphones about 10 meters behind to be able to generate the ambience of the church and eliminate some of the unavoidable disturbs arising during a live concert.
The microphones from Shoeps were connected to a Nagra VI pro 8-channel recorder. The power supply chain of the electronic involved was from Cammino-HP.
Blumenhofer's involvement? We made the whole possible and our loudspeakers will be used in the post-processing of the recorded tracks to reach the quality needed to realize the CD.
After enjoying the concert in the church, we spent the whole sunday playing the tracks again and again to understand the quality and start a first remixing process to decide the relative levels of the tracks. We were astonished, I've never had the experience of listening for a concert a second time in that quality. It beamed me away into a meditative status: fantastic! I'm looking forward for hearing the CD at my place.

Norddeutsche HiFi Tage 2013
It is one of the most appealing consumer HiFi shows in Germany and like in the last 4 years we had our chance to expose there.
This time it was not intended to be minimalistic it was a really huge system and played really good music.
The groove was there, the energy pushed us to the wall and the wish to increase the volume was there, but we had to spare the ears of our visitors.
The visitors came… and forgot to leave the room. At certain moments it was that full that we were not able to move.
We had a Genuin(e) good sound. This was the setup:
- Einstein Vorstufe - The Tube
- Einstein Endstufe - The Poweramp
- Einstein CD Player - The Source
- Einstein Phono Preamplifier - The Turntable's Choice
- Pluto Audio Plattenspieler
- Van den Hul Tonabnehmer
- Cammino H 3.1 Power Harmonizer
- Klangstube Phono Rack
- Blumenhofer Acoustics Lautsprecher - Genuin FS 2
And if You are curious to see some pictures, they are here in our Gallery.
Thank You and thank the whole Bramsfeld team for the wonderful organization. Here the link to the HiFi Tage pages.
See You in 2014!
