X-Fi Veldhoven - a crowded event
The easiest thing is to quote our distributor, Marco, the owner of Music2.nl
The Setup? Feickert Blackbird, Jelco, Zyx, Octave Jubilees, BH Gran Gioia's... More or less my idea of the best possible set-up you can imagine...
Statements? We were told about 100 times:
- "absolutely the best sound if the show"
- "finally a set-up that sounds as it should be"
We had about 4000 visitors in total, think they all came to our room and, well, it was SO crowded in the room that it became almost impossible to do a demo at all!!
It is true... 105m2 and sometimes having over 100 people in...

Göteborg HiFi Show
We were in room Björkö, in the boot of OldSchoolHiFi at the Scandic Opalen Hotel.
The Setup was impressive, pure analog sources:
- Pluto Turntable with Pluto Tonearm and Ikeda 9TT cartridge
- Audiomat Phono Preamplifier
- Reed Turntable with Reed Tonearm and Van den Hul Condor Cartridge
- Octave Phono Preamplifier
- Audiomat integrated Amplifier
- Cammino cabling
- Cammino Power Harmonizer
- Loudspeakers Genuin FS 3 MK 2.
The biggest problem we had was the electricity quality. The room had very old unearthed sockets. Fact is that we had quite some grounding problems and an enormous hmm during setup…
…and these problems have been solved: we got our power from the corridor with a 15m long power cable brought in the local warehouse.
Despite these problems, we have been able to reach a quite satisfactory level of sound reproduction quality with that impressive analogue setup and the people were pleased by the sound that put the Music in focus…
This event has been possible thanks to our Dutch distributor, Marco de Wilde: he took over were Jan could not be part of the event. We are getting a nice Blumenhofer family that support each other, when for any personal reason some of us can’t, the other jump in. This is friendship!!
