Genuin FS 1 MK 3

Harmonic construction and simplification with a gorgeous air dried Blumenhofer own 16in-38cm woofer.

When our 16" woofer reached maturity, we finally decided to upgrade the Genuin FS 1 to MK 3 level. The look and structure are essentially the same. The changes are in the inside. The new air dried paper membrane is moved by a really powerful Alnico magnet. This brings the mid-bass of our Genuin FS 1 MK 3 to a complete new level of quality. More bass, more deepness, more richness in the midrange.

Klangschloss Greifensee

Blumenhofer's Setup at the Klangschloss.ch 2018

Our Swiss distributor, Soundrevolution.ch participated to the Klangschloss in Greifensee, near Zürich.

At this show we shared the big room with another company, Illusonic. This made the whole thing very relaxing: half an hour to present the system with the music, half an hour to discuss with customers outside... or drinking a cup of caffe...

Public was at a very high musical level, presentations were amazing, location was gorgeous… and we had a beautiful weather ;-)

The setup was composed by:
- Merging Nadac 8 channel DAC-Preamplifier with external power supply
- Gato Audio CD Player
- Gato Audio Mono Power Amplfiiers
- Whole cabling by Cammino
- Decouplers from Omicron
- Loudspeakers Genuin FS 1 MK 2 from Blumenhofer
- Rack studied and developed by us in Attalens
From the pictures in the gallery of Soundrevolution (here) You can have more information about the components and how they have been connected in our setup

We only had digital music, played with a Roon-based control. It was the first time since longer time that browsing the titles on the iPad gave a certain analogue feeling. I will investigate Roon as soon as I'll be back from the Munich High End Show 2018.
One (or rather 4) important appointments during the show were the 4 lectures from specialists. They invited me to be one of these lecturer and I used the opportunity to tell some stories about horn and our understanding of horns. Here You can download it and get a short feeling, of what I presented to the public. Honestly I was expecting optimistically 8-10 persons in the public. No. The room was full. More than 40 people were there listening to what I intended to tell them. Challenging has been the Q&A session after the lecture.

We all enjoyed the show at the Klangschloss and the great engagement of Marcus to have a great show in the amazing avenue. Looking forward for the Klangschloss 2019.
In the meantime You can enjoy here some pictures of the 2018 event, in the web pages of Soundrevolution
