News about Blumenhofer Acoustics

HiFi Stars and the Munich High End System with the Gran Gioia 2x10


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.

Sitting on the balcony we discussed the technical behind the projects and about the system considered as a whole.

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 ;-)

Penwerk's Review

It is always nice to hear that people are trusting Blumenhofer for such kind of sensible tasks.

Thank You Arno.

Visit at HiFi Stars Mr. Aschenbrunner

2017_02_11-Logo_HiFi-Stars-300


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.

Report about our Munich High End on Part Time Audiophile

pta16

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.

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

2016_02_01-blumenhofer_tempesta_17_test_1_605


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
