The Finest Brands

2014_11_10-FinestBrands


When I entered the room of the event of The Finest Brands, I was skeptic. I did not really understood what it was all about... but I tell You, as time went by and the discussion continued I was more and more amused and amazed!!! What a great choice, what a big chance! What a fantastic idea!

The Finest Brands is promoting Lifestyle brands and equipment made to better enjoy life and fill up the free time with great activities: Music and Dramaturgy are arts that since the dawn of mankind are supporting the soul of the men.
Which brands are included in this portfolio? For the time being, and just an example:
- Donnelly Fine Art
- Signature Royale
- Olhausen Pool table and games
- Darafeev Fine Furniture
- Inada Massage Chairs
- Memphis Grills
- LifeForm executive Seating
- Positive Posture Recliners
- ...and many more!

Blumenhofer is not directly in the portfolio of the finest brands, because electronics is not in their portfolio, but... look for the finest brands in Your hometown in USA and You will find our loudspeakers.
The most beautiful story regarding music of those days is that for the first time I've had the chance to experiment a true Blumenhofer Genuin FS 2 home cinema set. It included the Genuin CS 2 Twin center and 2 Sub 21". All powered by a spectacular Dataset processor and power amplifier. The Subs were alimented by a 10 kW power amplifier: my best cinema experience ever!!

4 were the setups in the showroom:
- Tempesta 17 Bookshelf with Sonos amplifier
- Tempesta 17 home cinema set with Arcam receiver
- Tempesta 20 stereo set with Arcam CD Player, Arcam Dac and Arcam Stereo Power Amplifier
- Genuin FS 2 home cinema set with Datasat AV Decoding and Power Amplification

Already this was a fantastic experience, and then, in another showroom, I had the chance to enjoy a complete Tempesta 20 home cinema set.

In both cases the chosen projector was a Sim2, a small luxury brand, devoted to highest quality.

Take Your time to have a look at the pictures here, they are really saying more than words!

Report from the Swiss High End 2014 in Zürich

2014_10_17-VisitUs-HighEnd-Swiss

We were there, and we had fun!!
We changed everything and in the end everything was even better than last year. What shall I write, the best sign of success is seeing people staying in the room long time and... something I take with me? A customer brought a CD of the Toccata and Fugue of Bach, the classic organ piece. This time I plaid loud and in the end I had such a fantastic feeling of satisfaction and completeness that I only seldom remember. That was music!

The power amplification: Octave V70SE with integrated in the Power Amplifier
Analog source: Dr. Feickert Woodpecker with Tonearm from Jelco and Lyra Delos Cartridge
Digital source: CD Transport from Audio Tonale with DAC from Hegel

Of course the whole cabling from Cammino including the power harmonizer.
If You wish to have a short view of what we did, take a look at the pictures here

Vinylfuif - the party on vinyl at Audio 21 in Wapvenweld

2014_10_11-Vinylfuif

These are the Words of Mark van Braam of Audio 21:

"The 12th October, Audio21 in Wapenveld NL held their vinyl-party. In three listening rooms, three sets, the first Gran Gioia with the new preamp of Sonore AC, in the second the FS2 ‘patchwork’ which is probably the most special pair of the world, also with the amps of Sonore AC. The third listening room was filled with the fun13, amp of Pathos Acoustics. And of course vinyl was always the source; Pluto and Dr. Feickert were ‘singing’. Outside in a tent, the local vinyl store showed their new stock. About 150 people came to this charming event, in the most charming hifi-shop of the Netherlands. Next year, the first weekend of may, the second edition of the ‘Vinylfuif’. The word ‘fuif’ is difficult to translate… an other word for ‘party’ which was used in the 80’s."


Here to the picture gallery

Sonore and Pluto Demonstration

Mark van Braam of Audio 21 told me:

"I drove to the south of Holland with the gear, to let hear a group of people (about 40 during the day) the difference between the ‚standard’ Pluto motor and the special ‚Sonore’ motor. Using the FS2. I am the very.. big tall guy, 10th photo, with the white shirt at the left"


Marco de Wilde of Music2 told me:

"Yesterday they were flabbergasted by the FS2’s. Over a 1000 m3 of room (21 by 10 by 5 meters) and a real full range sound! They keep amasing me..."



The whole setup was based on Sonore AC gear using our Genuin FS 2 as a front end, the patchwork one, and according to the words of Mark and what he is doing in these days, it worked out to be a really successful event!!

Listening Session with Emiral Audio

2014_07_08-Emiral-Audio


We had an amazing listening session with Emiral Audio, a small company from the north of Germany.
While listening we had longer discussion on market chance and cooperation in several areas of the world: expect some surprises!!
It is really well promising.

We tested their 845 based single ended power amplifier with our Genuin FS 1 MK 2 and on the Fun 17. First with the stock tubes and then with some special 845 we had in our showroom and we had great satisfaction in what we have heard.
In the next future we will get to try their phono preamplifier for a critic listening.
Thank You Ralf and Emil for Your visit, see You soon.
If You are curious, here to some pictures.
