Our room was one of the chosen ones. Here You can read his opinion.
PANAGIOTIS KARAVITIS appreciated the qualities of the system:
I heard Ella Fitzgerald singing “Black Coffee” with a vibrant and clear voice like few other times.
The 12” woofer provided all the bass one would want for a moderate room.

Event at the Klangvilla in Leipzig28 November 2014, 18:05 Event, Fun 17, Germany, Mini
The aim of the show was not presenting Blumenhofer, but Blumenhofer has been chosen as a tool to present the other HiFi components in the game. This is for us an even bigger compliment: people should concentrate on music and listening.
Star of the show were several Ortofon cartridges on an Extension 10 Tonearm. Aim was to demonstrate the difference between several cartridges.
Electronic from Pro-ject, the reference series.
Although the star was Ortfon, the visitors paid high attention to the loudspeakers, and even women appreciated the look and the music our loudspeakers have been able to deliver.

They bare a beauty, a musicality and they are so enjoyable that You will not miss higher priced systems
There is no listening fatigue, the annoying sensation related to hyper-definition and hyper-detail is absent
The Mini of Blumenhofer have the virtue to be enjoyable at high volume even for longer time

The Finest Brands10 November 2014, 17:34 Event, USA
When I entered the room of the event of The Finest Brands, I was skeptic. I did not really understood what it was all about... but I tell You, as time went by and the discussion continued I was more and more amused and amazed!!! What a great choice, what a big chance! What a fantastic idea!
The Finest Brands is promoting Lifestyle brands and equipment made to better enjoy life and fill up the free time with great activities: Music and Dramaturgy are arts that since the dawn of mankind are supporting the soul of the men.
Which brands are included in this portfolio? For the time being, and just an example:
- Donnelly Fine Art
- Signature Royale
- Olhausen Pool table and games
- Darafeev Fine Furniture
- Inada Massage Chairs
- Memphis Grills
- LifeForm executive Seating
- Positive Posture Recliners
- ...and many more!
Blumenhofer is not directly in the portfolio of the finest brands, because electronics is not in their portfolio, but... look for the finest brands in Your hometown in USA and You will find our loudspeakers.
The most beautiful story regarding music of those days is that for the first time I've had the chance to experiment a true Blumenhofer Genuin FS 2 home cinema set. It included the Genuin CS 2 Twin center and 2 Sub 21". All powered by a spectacular Dataset processor and power amplifier. The Subs were alimented by a 10 kW power amplifier: my best cinema experience ever!!
4 were the setups in the showroom:
- Tempesta 17 Bookshelf with Sonos amplifier
- Tempesta 17 home cinema set with Arcam receiver
- Tempesta 20 stereo set with Arcam CD Player, Arcam Dac and Arcam Stereo Power Amplifier
- Genuin FS 2 home cinema set with Datasat AV Decoding and Power Amplification
Already this was a fantastic experience, and then, in another showroom, I had the chance to enjoy a complete Tempesta 20 home cinema set.
In both cases the chosen projector was a Sim2, a small luxury brand, devoted to highest quality.
Take Your time to have a look at the pictures here, they are really saying more than words!

Report from the Swiss High End 2014 in Zürich17 October 2014, 19:10 Genuin FS 2, HiFi Show, Switzerland
We were there, and we had fun!!
We changed everything and in the end everything was even better than last year. What shall I write, the best sign of success is seeing people staying in the room long time and... something I take with me? A customer brought a CD of the Toccata and Fugue of Bach, the classic organ piece. This time I plaid loud and in the end I had such a fantastic feeling of satisfaction and completeness that I only seldom remember. That was music!
The power amplification: Octave V70SE with integrated in the Power Amplifier
Analog source: Dr. Feickert Woodpecker with Tonearm from Jelco and Lyra Delos Cartridge
Digital source: CD Transport from Audio Tonale with DAC from Hegel
Of course the whole cabling from Cammino including the power harmonizer.
If You wish to have a short view of what we did, take a look at the pictures here
Old School HiFi is our new distributor for Sweden15 October 2014, 13:28 Distributor, Sweden
We have been in contact with Jan from Old School HiFi since a longer time. And the personal relationship is working pretty well. We have fun together, we like the same kind of music and the way we listen to music is the same. It feels good drinking a beer and turn the volume up and up and rock until it makes fun!
After some uncertainty on both sides, we decided to work together. Jan Öström is our new distributor for Sweden.

Vinylfuif - the party on vinyl at Audio21 in Wapvenweld12 October 2014, 14:17 Event, Fun 13, Genuin FS 2, Gran Gioia, Netherlands
These are the Words of Mark van Braam of Audio 21:
"The 12th October, Audio21 in Wapenveld NL held their vinyl-party. In three listening rooms, three sets, the first Gran Gioia with the new preamp of Sonore AC, in the second the FS2 ‘patchwork’ which is probably the most special pair of the world, also with the amps of Sonore AC. The third listening room was filled with the fun13, amp of Pathos Acoustics. And of course vinyl was always the source; Pluto and Dr. Feickert were ‘singing’. Outside in a tent, the local vinyl store showed their new stock. About 150 people came to this charming event, in the most charming hifi-shop of the Netherlands. Next year, the first weekend of may, the second edition of the ‘Vinylfuif’. The word ‘fuif’ is difficult to translate… an other word for ‘party’ which was used in the 80’s."

Sonore and Pluto Demonstration20 September 2014, 09:05 Genuin FS 2, Listening Session, Netherlands
"I drove to the south of Holland with the gear, to let hear a group of people (about 40 during the day) the difference between the ‚standard’ Pluto motor and the special ‚Sonore’ motor. Using the FS2. I am the very.. big tall guy, 10th photo, with the white shirt at the left"
Marco de Wilde of Music2 told me:
"Yesterday they were flabbergasted by the FS2’s. Over a 1000 m3 of room (21 by 10 by 5 meters) and a real full range sound! They keep amasing me..."
The whole setup was based on Sonore AC gear using our Genuin FS 2 as a front end, the patchwork one, and according to the words of Mark and what he is doing in these days, it worked out to be a really successful event!!
