News about the Tempesta 20

Munich High End 2021

We just decided to participate to the Munich High End 2021. Still is open the configuration and the setup, still is open which amplification and which presence.

But... we will be there: we will have something big and good sounding to present.

The High End Society cancelled the Munich High End 2020



Today, the organisers of the Munich High End decided to cancel the show for 2020. We think that this is a very responsible and courageous decision. We never know how the things might develop in the next months... but just in case, this was the one and only decision to be taken.

We partecipate to the Munich High End 2020

 Munich High End

We will participate to the 2020 edition of the Munich High End. We plan to present our upcoming flagship loudspeaker... we are still at the development stage, but here an hint what it might become


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 ;-)

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

Milano HiFi presentation of the Genuin FS 1 MK 2

Sound-of-the-valve-logo


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.

If You wich to see more pictures You can enjoy them here.

Norddeutsche HiFi Tage - Hamburg

2017_02_04-Logo+Skyline-450


Hamburg and the Norddeutsche HiFi Tage are always worth a trip. Probably I've already mentioned: Hamburg is one of the cities where I could think about a good living. Better than a lot others.
Well, I'll not mention about the music and the higher and higher quality of the show. It is worth visiting, but believe me, You will need the whole time to be sure to find (and then enjoy) the rooms worth Your time: there are really a lot.
We played:
- The Pick Up - Einstein Cartridge
- The Tonarm - Einstein Tonarm
- Air Force 3 - Tech Das Turntable
- The Phono Preamp - Einstein Phono Preamp
- The Tune - Einstein Integrated Power Amp
- Tempesta 20 - Loudspeakers Blumenhofer
- The Power Harmonizer - Cammino power filter
- Reference series Cables - from Cammino

It is a big system, but if You consider the main parts, Loudspeakers and power amp, it is still in a reasonable price range.
As usual, blues, blues, rock, a small bit of classics, blues and then country, country blues, electro rock, country rock, blues rock, folk (but not too much) and then baroque, and orchestras…
Good music, good sound, really enjoyable for even longer than the 2 days of the show.

The organizer (Ivonne) put a basket of prizes together and we offered a set of Mini loudspeakers (here the news), they were the most valuable price of the event. These pair of Minis have been won by Ingo B**h. I hope he will enjoy them as well as I'm enjoying mine here in my home.
If You are curious about some pictures, please here You can find them.
We are curious about the 2018 edition ;-)
