News about Blumenhofer Acoustics
We have been away for a certain while. And I have so much news to tell You since the Munich High End… well, In the next week I'll catch up with You and with all happened since May 2017!
Ultimate AV from Budapest is our new distributor for Hungary. He is specialised in high quality systems and therefore his choice fell on our loudspeakers to be able to deliver to his most demanding customers the most proficient system.
We spent a good time together to learn from each-other the special tricks needed to setup a system in the perfect way. …and I enjoyed some special Hungarian Gulash!! ;-)
I guess Edward got inspired for his company name by the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I shall ask him.
42 Audio is the new distributor for Blumenhofer in the Ukraine.
No need for big marketing slogans, no need to tell You how many prototypes of the horn we built, no need to tell You what nor why. As usual, no compromises… but we collected good ideas what could come next ;-)
Today we will play the Gran Gioia MK 2 for the first time in public. At the Munich High End 2017 Room F224… there is no better moment to introduce new products.
After several years we discontinue the Gioia, the Gran Gioia and the Clara Luna. The reasons are different but absolutely understandable.
The Clara Luna: one of the components is no more available and there is no possibility to find an alternative without going in the MK 2 version.
The Gran Gioia: in the last years we have made huge steps forward in the construction and in the knowledge about how to build horns and phase plugs.
The Gioia: very simple, the costs related to the construction of the Gioia are just a little bit lower than the costs related to the Gran Gioia. This would put the Gioia in a very similar price category to the Gran Gioia and would force us to artificially increase the price of the Gran Gioia. We are not keen to these pricing games just to avoid internal competitions. We aim at giving the best value for money to our customers.
Our Milan dealer, Enea Spinelli from Spinelli HiFi, participated to the Milano Hi-Fidelity show this year. An event from the Sound of the Valve by Stefano Zaini, this event presents HiFi in Milano since more than 16 years.
It has been an amazing weekend with some very good music and food. I enjoyed the chance as well to test some of the music for the Munich High End.
No big news in the setup but for the new racks of Solidsteel and feet of Omicron. Nothing very mind blowing, but a lot of small things to increase the level of the presentation.
Octave and Marantz electronics, Transrotor and Rega sources, Cammino cabling and power treatment. Blumenhofer loudspeakers.

Walter Kircher presented our products at the Vienna Vinyl show at the Ottakringer Brewery, an exceptional location with a big potential for public and good entertainment. In one of the pictures You can see concert area, which, You can believe me, has been used very well during the event!!!

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
The polish magazine High Fidelity translated the review of the Genuin FS 3 MK 2 written by Marek Dyba in English. Here You can read it. I'll read it in the next few hours…
Marek Dyba wrote a review in polish language about our Genuin FS 3 MK 2. Apparently one of the best reviews ever. You can read the review in polish here.
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.
