Lucy and Harry, from the Bespoke Audio Company, paid us a visit at Blumenhofer: after a 5 years old appointment that has been postponed and renewed several times, finally we managed to meet. For this, we have to thank the perseverance of Harry, more than anything else.
We had chance to listen to their pearl. A passive preamplifier.
From the start the sound was convincing, dynamic, fast, clear, with the right presence on the whole frequency spectrum. It bears the musicality we aim to and we pursue in each of our developments. We tried it with several power amps and it matched them correctly.
Convincing. It is a product we will think about.
Then we have learnt that Lucy is personally winding the transformers, we then have learnt how far it is possible to tailor it to the needs of the customers and that it can be made to match the look of our loudspeakers. Lots of nice surprises and add ons for the demanding and knowledgable customer.
In the end, they opened up the little box for us: wow, very nice design, very nice construction, very simple but efficient cabling inside. Flabbergasting!! Not only for the sound but for the overall workmanship and attention to the single detail.
Lucy and Harry invest a huge amount of work and knowledge in their product. Entirely made in UK! I think that our two companies share a lot of understanding for music: looking forward for working together!!
Of course we had some fun during the day, if You are curious, You can have a look at our gallery, here.

They bare a beauty, a musicality and they are so enjoyable that You will not miss higher priced systems
There is no listening fatigue, the annoying sensation related to hyper-definition and hyper-detail is absent
The Mini of Blumenhofer have the virtue to be enjoyable at high volume even for longer time
