News about Blumenhofer Acoustics
For a longer time was our best seller and for it we developed the P2F© bass woofer.
There have been 2 versions in the design of this loudspeaker. The first one, when we introduced it back in 2005 and this last one with a more modern foot and a smaller horn cabinet, an improvement made back in 2010. Electrically and soundwise the 2 design issues of the Genuin FS 3 are identical.
Probably this year we will open new chances and future for the presence of our brand in China.
One thing I can state: it was an hard trip, but it was worth it.
During the show a professional recording engineer came to our room and made some demonstration about his recordings. There was a singer and himself was playing a flute.
After that he did not move any further: this was the room that was demonstrating best how near can be a reproduction match the original sound... barely a difference.
Enjoy the pictures!! in our gallery.
A familiar ambient and a really professional support from Mark van Braam, near there a very cosy Bed and Breakfast to be able to enjoy Your own listening section until late at night and the whole day after.
Here some pictures of the event.
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.
It was a long time that we did not go to China and we appreciated the opportunity.
In the end there were 3 rooms playing Blumenhofer Loudspeakers:
- the room of the German chamber of commerce playing a Fun 10 and a Tempesta 17 on the 3rd day
- our room with a Genuin FS 2
- the room of Mr. Amari with the Genuin FS 3 he purchased some years ago
what to say, we are small player, but apparently well appreciated :-)
Our distributor Exotic Audio participated to the Hi Fi Messen in Horten. He says that our products have been well accepted in Norway and Denmark. We are looking forward for happy customers!!
We flabbergasted every visitor of the AV-NU show with a sound that, we think, they never heard before: it was music. They never experienced reproduced music in a way that Blumenhofer presented at the show.
Lots of interests and lot of pictures have been taken... the biggest surprise of the public was that that "small" speaker (Genuin FS 3) has been able to have such a big volume impact and quality.
It was the best occasion to know him and his team personally and support his promotion of our brand in Spain.
I have been very warmly welcomed and felt as I would fit well there, maybe is the southern way of thinking, maybe is because I'm Italian and it seems natural to be there.
We set the system up on the 7th and on the morning of the 8th and have been quite satisfied of the sound result.
The setup consisted of an Ayon Spark III, and an Ayon CD Player.
At 10:30 started to come the first visitors: customers and friends of Tomás and Pick Up Sound: the enthusiasm and the affluence have been far better than expected. People came from Sivilla, Granada and Malaga to spend the day with us listening for music.
During the afternoon we changed the cables, XLR instead of RCA for the connection of the CD Player to the Power Amplifier... the setup was already good, it became fantastic!
After the show Antonio wrote me a mail that gave me lot of Joy:
[...] I think the FS 3 are amazing, love it. But the most impressing thing was Mr Vitali illuminating face every time he pronounced the word “music”.
I hope you never lose that passion and love for music, because I think that is the spirit that makes your brand sound as good.[...]

And that's one fact that we should never forget, as Carlos suggested during the event:
VälLjud was playing on a system consisting of Kondo Ongaku, Kondo M7 Phono and Kondo SFZ Stepup and a Oracle Delphi turntable, there was also an EAR Acute cd player for the digital playback. All cables was also Kondo, and a Shunyata netfilter.
The show was a big success with a lot of compliments on the exquisite sound coming from the Blumenhofer speakers.
The chain VälLjuD played on was composed by:
• Oracle Audio mk VI Turntable
• Oracle SME reference tonearm
• Kondo IO-M pickup
• Kondo KSL-SFz step-up transformer
• Kondo KSL-M7/Phono
• Kondo Ongaku
• Kondo KSL-SPz speaker cable
• Kondo KSL-LP interconnect cables
• Blumenhofer Acoustics Genuin FS 3
A lot of people were in the room and sat there for a long time listening to the system, more than one noted how enjoyable and engaging the system played.
