Review of the Fun 17 on Hörerlebnis in German

Westdeutsche HiFi Tage - Bonn

2015_10_03-Westdeutsche

At the Westdeutche HiFi Tage, Armin Kern and Stefan Brück presented a system in the hall of the Hotel. This is for sure not the best environment to present ta loudspeaker, but probably the most effective way to impress people.
They were playing for the first time ever the Genuin FS 3 MK 2 and they made a Signature Edition out of it… It is amazing was the idea of Armin!!

This loudspeaker will follow me in the next german events! We wait for Your contribution.

We played, but that was not the main point, we played our Genuin FS 2 in an Accustic Arts setup. Crowned by a Dr. Feickert Blackbird turntable.
And there was a second setup, with a Tempesta 17. But for sure it was not an audiophile show, it was all about Music, the way it should be.
The gigs? Well, astonishing, really professionals and amazing music made. For the first time in my life, I enjoyed an hammond, live!!

My opinion? Well, believe me, this show will grow. This show has a really astonishing potential! And we are one important part of it. You will see in 5 years: if the cards are played in the proper way, it is going to become one of the reference show in the German speaking countries!
But if You are curious to see some pictures I took from the current 2015 edition: please check here our gallery

Montreux CE Show 2015

2015_09_20-Montreux_Logo



At the Montreux CE Expo 2015, Soundrevolution had a big room, about 70 square meter, and we presented our Genuin FS 2 combined with The Tune from Einstein. The whole power cleaning was based on Cammino their Power Harmonizer to get the system playing at its best.

The opted for analogue music reproduction, but even our CD partners found a good solution for their needs. The sources will be:
- Plattenspieler Thales TTT-Compact including the famous Thales Tonarm
- CD Transport from Audio Tonale

At fist I was surprised by the quantity of strange products at the show: refrigerators, ovens, television sets, even pots and hair blowers.
At first I was not really understanding what was happening: very little public at the show. Then I understood that: it was a dealer show.
Each person entering the room was in fact dealer of some kind of electronic components or home appliances. GREAT!!

We had the time to spend and to discuss with each person coming to our room. I think I've seldom enjoyed such a relaxed and rich fair, seldom in such a beautiful place with such a rich environment (even outside the show area).
If You are curious? Here to our gallery.

Sempre-Audio.at releases an analisys on our product line

2015_09_15-sempre-audio-reportage


Michael Holzinger of Sempre-Audio.at is always astonishing. Not even one day after our news about the Genuin FS 3 MK 2, he is making an analysis on our Genuin product lines. And as usual he is going deep in the matter. Here You can read his article, in German. Enjoy!
I'm looking forward for his article on the Tempesta 17! ;-)

2015_09_14-Genuin-FS-3-MK-2

We introduce the Genuin FS 3 MK 2

It was due time, after introduction of the harmonic construction on the Genuin FS 2 and then in the Genuin FS 1 MK 2, even the Genuin FS 3 needed a major overhaul. And now there it is. Today we introduce the new Genuin FS 3 MK 2.
This loudspeakers bears several news, if compared with the one it substitutes:
- Harmonic construction
- 25cm (10") paper woofer based on own development (instead of 20cm-8")
- easy time alignment system on top of the main cabinet
- floor ported bass reflex duct (instead of front)
- own made lacquered HDF horn

It maintains lots of the properties that made the Genuin FS 3 MK 1 a best-seller:
- High efficiency
- flat impedance curve
- tube friendliness
- switchable impedance linearization for the cross over frequencies

For us a really major improvement, worth the while.
Available starting mid of October 2015. Now, the music is up to You!

2015_09_17-Genuin-FS-3-MK-2-Makassar

We discontinue the Genuin FS 3

The Genuin FS 3 was the second product borne from Blumenhofer Acoustics, when we started to focus on the HiFi Market, was our first companion to the Genuin FS 1.
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.
