News about Blumenhofer Acoustics
On that day, we had a longer afternoon with the two journalists of the HiFi Stars, a german magazine. Alexander Aschenbrunner (who already wrote some reports about our loudspeakers) and Dipl.-Ing Klaus Sigl. They were eager to have a glimpse at the system that we were setting up for the Munich High End 2019.
They brought some music, we had other. The music styles covered a really wide range and the weather contributed a lot to make it relaxing, not just 'hard' work.
There were some surprises, but the overall comment of the persons was positive. I know, You (reader of this post) have read these kind of sentences everywhere... but believe me. I know the person (Aschenbrunner), who was talking in front of me, and we are always quite frank to each other when we meet, then, no need of bullshitting each other: when it is good it is good, when it is not, then it is a shit. Curious?
Well... allow me to post these comments in German language.
Talking about our new Gran Gioia 2x10 loudspeakers:
"Zum Klang fällt mir gerade der Begriff „Musikerlebnis“ ein - exakt dies passiert beim Hören mit den Lautsprechern von Blumenhofer Acoustics. Und je größer diese sind - so wie die hier in Rede stehende Gran Goia 2 x 10 - um so größer ist das Erlebnis"
Talking about the overall system (remember, when it is positive or negative, is always the whole system playing, not just a component):
"Blumenhofer, Kronzilla, Cammino? Das bewegt Emotionen!!"
Well, this comment was stolen in a quiet minute, drinking caffe and talking about something completely different ;-)
Mr. Arno Verhoeven, of the online magazine Penwerk.nl published a review of the 4 Seasons of Vivaldi. The listening sessions have been made on a Tempesta 20.
Here You can read the impressions of Arno in Dutch
It is always nice to hear that people are trusting Blumenhofer for such kind of sensible tasks.
Thank You Arno.
On-Topaudio.fr released a review of our loudspeakers.
The article in French is a good description of our philosophy and way of thinking.
You can read it here on the pages of the French e-zine.
Alexander Aschenbrunner from HiFi Stars spent some times with our Genuin FS 2 and had the chance to enjoy a lot of music. Apparently he will not give the loudspeaker back.
If You are curious about his report, You can read it at page 62-65 on the 34 issue of the magazine or here the pdf of the article in German and here in English
I had the chance to pay a visit to Mr. Aschenbrunner, the journalist writing for HiFi Stars at the Silvia Oelkers Verlag. Mr. Aschenbrunner is a direct person and preferred to have just his system depicted without people.
Despite an article about the Genuin FS 2 is going to be published in the next weeks, we did not talk at all about that: we discussed about music and its reproduction. It was an amazing afternoon that ended in an enjoyable dinner at a local high class restaurant.
It was a nice Christmas gift. Stereopluss.no published on their 8/2016 issue a review of our Tempesta 17. Your can read it in Norwegian at page 46 - 48. The only thing the reviewer did not like was the veneer: he would have preferred something more exotic. The Tempesta 17 earned 5 Stars out of 5!!

For the first time since longer, we had a journalist paying us a visit and spending some times with us in interviews and visit of our company.
Since last time the improvements are quite a lot, if I look back at the first one, published by Fairaudio.de back in 2010… well, we are completely different company.
If You wish to enjoy the reading, please, here You can find the article.
Christian Wenger from AVguide.ch and André Aebischer from Soundrevolution.ch paid us a visit to interview us about the vision we have and the upcoming products. We disclosed a lot of information in the interview, but some of them were not intended to be made public jet. You will soon see some anticipation in this news page.
Both of them shot lots of pictures during the days and we took time to continue the visit even in places where we made some professionals installation as well.
Here You can browse some pictures they shared with us and have a little feeling of the kindness of the visit.
In a few weeks Christian Wenger will publish an article on the AVguide.ch pages about the company and the interviews.
Panagiotis visited us in our booth at the Munich High End 2016. He was surprised how well the Blumenhofer are playing with triodes and the pairing with Air Tight. Old style HiFi is simply great. He did not want to believe that the big loudspeaker in the window was meant for a customer. In fact it is, soon I'll post some pictures of this fabulous Cinema near Munich.
Stereoplay awarded our Tempesta 17 with the golden ear award. We were on place 3. We are really engaged and pleased by the quality we have achieved with this product!
Here the original post from the review on Stereoplay.de, here the page with the awards
Mr. Daniel Schmid from AVguide.ch writes a very positive report about our Tempesta 17. It has been tested in a set with the Hegel 160 and the reporter was widely convinced about the delivered quality.
Here You can read it in German
These are some highlights from the text, in German:
- Die Tempesta 17 schaffte es mühelos die atmosphärische Dichte des Stampen in Stockholm ausdrucksstark zu reproduzieren
- die Wiedergabe hat Charakter und lädt richtig zum Musikhören ein
- Besonders überzeugend dann wieder die sehr akkurate räumlich Abbildung, welche sofern auf der Aufnahmen vorhanden einen herrlichen dreidimensionalen Klangraum erzeugt
- Die präzise und authentische Klangentfaltung bürgt für geschmackvollen und sehr kultivierten Musikgenuss mit hohem Spassfaktor
- MUSS SAGEN, ICH HATTE EINIGEN SPASS MIT DER TEMPESTA 17
It hit us as a positive surprise, we were not aware that our Genuin FS 1 MK 2 was in the narrow choice for the award in the Tower loudspeakers category.
Our Genuin FS 1 MK 2 got a superb review on Fairaudio.de and on 6moons.com back in march 2015 and now the Fairaudio favourite Award. This is our first award.
