Groove into Bits Vol. 1 CD

In cooperation with STS-Digital, we produced the Groove into Bits Vol. 1 CD.
We already informed You about this project.
It was extraordinary and it has borne by chance.

2012_05_03-GrooveIntoBits_01
We met in Walkertshofen last September and started listening for music of all kinds. Of course on LP. Spontaneous was the question… why don't we master it to a CD trying to keep the analog feeling of the turntable. Then, the task was set, how to perform it? Simple? Conny Englmeier started playing DJ, Fritz connected his Marantz mastering equipment, Lars set up the Kanzy power amplifier, and Tom connected our Wiki: if we need a monitor speaker why not the best one available? Marco had a Acoustic Signature Ascona with an SME tonearm and a Soundsmith cartridge in the trunk of the car. The setup was done. The songs were chosen and we started the recording process. It took us a longer time than expected but was fun. After hours we were eating in the restaurant and René suggested to name it after the project: Grove into Bits was what we did. From LP to CD. Extraordinary.

René L. van Es Article "in Wiki Wonderland" available in English

Do You remember that in René L. van Es visited us back in November? Here is the post about that visit.

He wrote a very charming article about his experience with the Wiki, and called the article for Music Emotion "in Wiki Wonderland",
here is the post about that article and here is the article in Dutch.

But not all of us are able to read Dutch (I'm not able at all), therefore René agreed to translate to English and Michael of
Astin Trew agreed to support us with this translation (thank You René and thank You Michael). Here You can read it in English, well it is just the text, without pictures, but it it worth reading. Enjoy.

Exercises in Intarsium

Sometimes it is worth experimenting. We made some exercises in Intarsia. Wikipedia has a nice description about what this ancient art of decorating wood is: here to wikipedia article

East West Audio Show in Wichen

East West Audio's Blumenhofer Show:

On the 31st of March and the 1st of April our Dutch dealer East West Audio Shop organized a great show with one key role player: Blumenhofer Acoustics!

Set-ups were made with the Fun's 10 and 13, Big Fun 17, Genuin FS4.2, Genuin FS3.2 and Genuin FS1. Main source during this event was streaming audio, except for one set-up (and this set-up had it's private room to show the real meaning of dynamics): Blumenhofer Genuin FS1, Grandinote mono-amps, Octave Phonomodule and an Acoustic-Signature turntable with a van den Hul cartridge. All the cables were supplied by Live Cable. This set-up almost made us forget we were listening to reproduced music, closer to life is almost impossible.

A very big surprise for our visitors was the set-up in the main hall with the Genuin FS3.2. Powered by an Octave HP300 mkII and a RE 280 power amplifier this set-up was able to fill the complete hall with a very good open 3- dimensional sound with lot's of dynamics. No big surprise for us of course, but to keep in mind: this room was 10 meters wide and 20 meters long! A very big compliment for this set-up. The source in this set-up was streaming audio with Arcam and Calyx DAC's.

Again we were also noticing that Blumenhofer and T+A is a very good marriage, the Genuin FS4.2 and Big Fun 17 almost seemed to be made for this electronics, according to our visitors: nothing but big thumbs up!

As a ''little'' surprise we introduced the Blumenhofer Fun 10, this €975 a piece loudspeaker was playing with the all-in-one CVR-100 from Audio Block (€799), this complete set-up showed visitors that even the smallest Blumenhofer loudspeaker is still a real Blumenhofer loudspeaker. While playing in that same 200m2 room there was no lack of bass or definition at all! We foresee a very good future for this new range, almost impossible to beat in it's price range.

As with every show also this one had to come to an end, but we already agreed, this is going to be an event that will return every year.

This show was organized by Blumenhofer dealer East West Audio shop, Blumenhofer, Octave and Acoustic-Signature distributor Music2, T+A and Arcam distributor Audiac, STS-Digital and Music-Emotion magazine

Ingram Washington CD and LP - What a difference a day makes

It has been a long path to get back to LP, but, finally, with our support and the engagement for the whole team, STS-Digital got back to the roots: they made the first LP since years and it has been a best selling product at once.

The enjoyable warm voice of Ingram Washington in his CD/LP "What a difference a day makes" brings back sonorities and inspirations from vinyl and piano bar atmosphere.

Useless for me to stress that it has been mastered with Blumenhofer's Loudspeakers :-)

CES 2012 in Las Vegas

After 36 hours of travel Andrea arrived in Las Vegas. This was only the beginning. The CES is the most important international HiFi show on the world. But only for professionals. Journalists, Distributors, Dealers, Manufacturer and all the people working in the electronic industry are allowed to participate to this event at the Venetian in Las Vegas.
Rarely was our room not full and not visited. The contacts have been several and well promising. The cooperation with Grandinote, Astin Trew, Cammino and Acoustics Signature has been fruitful. The results will be fruitful as well.

The Show 2012 in Las Vegas

Parallel to the CES, in the Flamingo Hotel there was T.H.E. Show. An HiFi show in Las Vegas, open to the whole public, not only professional, but private people as well. Tom Hills asked us to use our Loudspeakers to present his new line of power amplifiers. We appreciated his appreciation and borrowed him the big Fun 17 and the Fun 13. He was really astonished by the sonic quality of booth loudspeakers and did not want to believe the quantity of bass that the small Fun 13 has been able to deliver. I'm sorry I did not spend that much time at T.H.E. Show. It would have been worth it!!
