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
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, more pictures are going to be added as soon as we have shared them.
Then the 3 days show time, we had plenty of visitors staying in our room for longer time to enjoy the music and several potential dealers approached us too.
Even this year Marco de Wilde of Music2 presented an astonishing show in Veldhoven.
There have been 3 rooms with Blumenhofer Acoustics loudspeakers for a total of 5 systems playing.
Here You can enjoy a picture gallery of the systems playing.
Main rooms with Blumenhofer were:
- Music2 played a Genuin FS 2, a Tempesta 17 Surround set and a Tempesta 20
- STS Digital played a Genuin FS 1 and a Fun 17
- Sonore AC played a Gran Gioia
Like last year the atmosphere was really enthusiastic and during the show lot of people showed their interest for our products.
The online magazine Puresound.be released a report about a visit to our company during the Munich High End 2013. Here You can read it… in Dutch
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:
