If You are curious about our participation, and where to find us, come to the Room F224 in Munich and see You there.
Should You wish to know something more, You can browse the Munich High End Preview page on the Blumenhofer Acoustics Web site.
At the Montreux CE Expo 2015, Soundrevolution had a big room, about 70 square meter, and Blumenhofer presented the Genuin FS 2 combined with The Tune from Einstein.
During the setup of the room we made a lot of testing, to be sure to setup the best possible system with the tools we had handy. There were also some attempt with other cabling, and these attempts were not leading to the desired result: it was a further confirmation of the quality of our products. In the end the whole cabling and the whole power cleaning was based on Cammino. With our Power Harmonizer we got the system playing at its best.
The analogue music reproduction was leading, but even our CD partners found a good solution for their needs. The sources have been:
- Turntable Thales TTT-Compact including the famous Thales Tonarm (I think it is a good idea to test it further)
- 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? It was refreshing: Here to our gallery.
Pacific Audio presented our products at the Hong Kong Audio Video Show HKAVshow 2015.
Here You can download the show guide
Here You can download the very nice brochure Pacific Audio made for our products in Chinese
Here You can view the whole pictures taken by the organizer
and here some pictures chosen from Pacific Audio
The show has been very well visited by public and our products rose lot of interest: it is a good start.
Looking forward for the results and a more detailed feedback.
What a show, what a huge work, what a fantastic crow of people.
We plaid great music, we had lot of discussions, and other big news will appear day by day on these pages.
Already before the show we have been able to make a step further in our market presence: it will be defined in the next months. And during the show we consolidated the strength of our name
Blumenhofer Acoustics, our partner, made an extensive coverage of the show in their web pages:
Here You can read the preview on the Munich High End,
Here You can read what we did during the dry run at Blumenhfer. The dry run has been really important and allowed us to reduce the setup time during the show.
Here You can see our picture gallery. Here the picture gallery of Walter Kircher.
…and here our story about the setup and the show itself.
Lot of information is mutated with Blumenhofer Acoustics: we are deeply working together :)
For now, a big thank You to the whole team!
The success was astonishing. We had the chance to expose in 2 rooms.
MastersounD and Blumenhofer
Needless to say, that booth rooms played music at a very high level. And that our love for Tubes grew even bigger this time :)
The show restarted after one or 2 years of pause with a bang! There were all the big names of HiFi, there were really plenty of rooms, but most of all, there were plenty of visitors!!
Here to the Blog entry of Walter Kircher about the Prague HiFi Show
Here You can visit our Picture Gallery
Even more than in the last years, the fireworks really exploded!!!
But this time… it left me breathlessssssss.
Just some small hints of the setup:
- TechDAS Air Force Two worldclass turntable, developed by former Japanese Micro Seiki: his lifetime project
- Einstein Audio The Little Big Phono phonopreamp
- Einstein Audio The Pickup cartridge
- Einstein Audio The Tune integrated amplifier including phono MM and Dac
- Cammino Power Harmonizer H3.1 - passive state of the art power conditioner (Blue Moon Award)
- Einstein Audio cables and Cammino power cords
- Symposium Acoustics rack, and overall decoupler and isolation and support elements
- Blumenhofer Acoustics Tempesta 20
At the first moment the whole system blowed me out of my socks!
The first impression was of a great maturity and understandability of what was coming out of the speakers: it was simply real!
Then slowly the feeling came of how was set up the system. A relatively simple setup with a grown world-class turntable.
Needles to say that we just played analog and have not been shy with the volume.
Needles to say that we all enjoyed the whole happening.
Here You can read the blog post of Walter Kircher, who supported us excellently during the whole days
Here You can view our picture slideshow
And in this picture, left Mr. Borchert and right his daughter: the two people behind the whole organization of the show. A big thank You to the both of them for making this possible!!
We were there, and we had fun!!
We have been able to wire the whole system with our cables... except for one digital and one power cable from WireWorld. It was the first time as well that we used the new loudspeaker cable, the 14.4 reference with Smart Wiring. Was great!! What incredible possibilities unfold, if there is the time to play and fiddle a little bit around, what enormous chance to push the system further.
What shall I write, the best sign of success is seeing people staying in the room long time and... having something good to remember.

If You wish to have a short view of what we did, take a look at the pictures here
...and now is time to tell the story of our Göteborg Ljud & Bild
We were playing in Hotel Hotel Scandic Opalen, Room Bohus 1, under the flag of Old School HiFi.
The system was an "old school" system:
- Power Amplifier: McIntosh MC75 Jubilee edition
- Preamplifier: McIntosh C220 60 Years edition
- Source: Turntable McIntosh MT5
- Cartridge: London Decca Special Gold
- Loudspeaker: Blumenhofer Genuin FS 1 MK 2
- Cabling and Power Treatment from Cammino
We used the top of our products, and they played top. As usual, our power harmonizer played a very central game to support the quality of all the other equipment!
The show was great!
Plenty of people interested in what we were making, people appreciating a lot our sound, people enjoying our kind of music and presentation, people spending hours at our booth.
Journalists enthusiastic about the result of our efforts.
Well, I must admit, it has been really convincing and really enjoyable, and honestly sometimes breathtaking for me!!
It made me eager for more. If You are curious, here You can browse the pictures of the show. See You soon in Scandinavia.
In the last part of his report from the Munich High End, Peter Breuninger put a video of our room in the show.
Even if he did not mention our company we are there, look beyond the table and on the rightmost edge of the setup, You will se our power harmonizer and our blue moon award
In his comments Peter says about our room that there was a beautiful sound, had a lot of crispiness and no coloration.
At the end he apologized for the volume ...well, we should apologize for the volume, not he, but You know, when it sounds good, I tend to increase it more and more :-)
Thanks Peter for Your positive feedback!!

We met in Walkertshofen Eddy from Pluto Audio, Peter from Allnic in Germany, Thomas from Blumenhofer and had some discussion and work to perfectly tune up our system for the Munich High End 2014. We are confident that we can participate at a reasonable level to the show... we are sure You will be thrilled too!!
More pictures will be available after the Munich High End ;-)
More pictures available since the 16th of Mai 2014 here!!
What to tell that I haven't already told?
This time I did not have the chance to make even one step outside of our room and spent the whole day talking with people visiting the show and spending lot of time in our room.
...even if really tough it has been very good!!
This was the setup, simpler than last year, but for this not less performing:

Thanks to Clemens and Martin of Sound and Vision (our dealer in Hamburg) for the outstanding support.
Looking forward for 2015! It is going to be the 10th anniversary of the show and our 6th participation: the organization promised big things for next year!
Here some pictures of the show.
This was our first participation to the Zürich High End 2013 and I must say it was a really positive surprise. Blumenhofer is in Switzerland an already well known and estimated brand and the public knew what they were looking for. Really enjoyable. Sound Revolution, our distributor for Switzerland has been able to make a very astonishing setup in that room.
The system was composed by:
- Gato Audio CD Player from Denmark
- Hegel Music System DAC with integrated Preamplifier from Norway
- Sauermann Audio Power Amplifier from Germany
- and of course Blumenhofer's Genuin FS 2
Ours was cabling and power harmonization, but do I need to stress it?
I must say, it made music and the public liked it really a lot, the comments of the people going out of the room were really cheering and pleased me and the team exposing in Zürich.
Then the spectacular atmosphere created by the artistic tapestry and the very pleasant environment completed the charm. It was a long work, but it was worth it.
A big thank You to André and Gerd for making this possible.
If I made You a bit curious, here You can find the picture gallery.
Even this year Marco de Wilde of Music2 presented an astonishing show in Veldhoven.
Cammino has taken care about the cabling and power harmonization in the main room: it was not an easy job!
And then we discovered another power harmonizer in another room. Unexpected but delightful!
Here You can enjoy a picture gallery of the systems
Like last year the atmosphere was really enthusiastic and during the show lot of people showed their interest for our products.
He organized the show with an exceptional presence of our brand: our cables and power harmonizers were present in 3 rooms.
In one room there was:
- Genuin FS 1 of Blumenhofer Acoustics
- in a setup with 4 Turntables from Pluto and Acoustics Signature
- 4 Phono preamplifiers from Einstein, van den Hul, Octave and Monk Audio
- and the Octave V110 with a (silver) black box.
- 2 of our Power Harmonizers!!
a really impressive setup.
On the sunday, in this room have been recorded and replayed a live concert of Case Mayfield. It was astonishing to have the artist sitting there and the music playing 1 to 1 and hardly notice a difference between the live and the playback performance.
The second room had:
- Blumenhofer Acoustics Genuin FS 2
- Einstein integrated amplifier
- Einstein Phono Preamplifier
- Dr. Feickert Blackbird
- and just one power harmonizer
The third room showed:
- Blumenhofer Acoustics big Fun 20
- Hans Acoustics Turntables
- and 'just' cabling from us
Here more pictures!
It is one of the most appealing consumer HiFi shows in Germany and we participated this year as well with Blumenhofer and Einstein.
This time it was not intended to be minimalistic it was a really huge system and played really good music.
The groove was there, the energy pushed us to the wall and the wish to increase the volume was there, but we had to spare the ears of our visitors.
The visitors came… and forgot to leave the room. At certain moments it was that full that we were not able to move.
We had a Genuin(e) good sound. This was the setup:
- Einstein Vorstufe - The Tube
- Einstein Endstufe - The Poweramp
- Einstein CD Player - The Source
- Einstein Phono Preamplifier - The Turntable's Choice
- Pluto Audio Plattenspieler
- Van den Hul Tonabnehmer
- Blumenhofer Acoustics Lautsprecher - Genuin FS 2
Guess which was our part?
And if You are curious to see some pictures, they are here.
See You in 2014!
Even this year we participated to the analog Audio Forum in Krefeld.
In our room the setup consistsed of:
- Rui Borges - Uno Turntable
- Einstein Audio Components - The Turntable's choice Phono Preamplifier
- Einstein Audio Components - The Tube Preamplifier
- Einstein Audio Components - The Light in the Dark Stereo Power Amplifier
- Blumenhofer Acoustics - Gioia Loudspeakers
- Cammino HP - complete power supply and cabling including its extraordinary Power Harmonizer
On the first day we had a straight setup, it played, but it was not possible to turn up the volume. The people were already satisfied, but we did not. We knew what was reachable with that setup and we reached maximum 60% of that. Not satisfactory. Not at all for us.
In the night from Saturday to Sunday, after a good dinner in a nearby restaurant, we spent half of the night to start from scratch. What a wonder, on the second day, music was playing, finally music was in the room and cheered our ears. Thanks to Marco for the big effort.
Thanks to Hanna as well for taking care about the customers and to Jürgen from HiFi Studio Fuchs for the LPs.
And most of all thank You to the whole AAA Team for the great organization of the event and the great support during the days of the show!!! See You again next year!
Here You can see the pictures.
On the 29th and 30ies of Sepember we have participated to the X-Fi audio Show in Veldhoven. What to say?

We knew it would have played really good, but it was astonishing, it overwhelmed our expectations. Much much more.
The impression was to listen for a real orchestra, complete with all its elements and power. You can not believe what I mean if You do not hear it Yourself.
Take a look at the pictures (here), it is worth it… meanwhile, we will wait for the portrait of the setup, a painting by René Visker of the Ritsart Gallery in Maassluis, The Netherlands
The idea to participate has borne by chance during one of the visit Andrea played to STS-Digital to evaluate the quality of the Groove into Bits CD and discuss some more points about marketing. And this is the question we had: how can we promote the brands in the most effective ways. Then we crosschecked our resources and decided to go again an unconventional way: we have the Blumenhofer Acoustics CD, why not to sell it at the show?
Some dazzling some phone call after we had the space at the fair and the equipment for displaying and playing the CDs.
The electronic of Pro-Ject has been supplied by ATR, the cabling and the power supply harmonizer by Cammino-HP. We used the stand as static display and as point of contact for the people interested in our products. And the interest was big, thanks as well to the Gran Gioia from Blumenhofer Acoustics: a great eye catcher!
During the show we had several visit of old friends and new potential distributors.
The visit of Van den Hul himself, the owner of the famous Van den Hul brand, brought some emotion Mr. Van den Hul appreciated our work.
Mr. Heinz Lichtenegger, director of Project, has been pleased by the quality of our CDs and recordings, and was astonished by the result over their CD player... well they were fed by our power harmonizer!!
As usual we made lot of pictures, you can see them here:
We were in the room of Blumenhofer Acoustics and Einstein, on the 16th floor of the hotel.
We had longer talks with final customer interested in power treatment and perfect system setup.
Volker of Einstein Audio had as usual a really great choice of music.
Blumenhofer was playing the Fun 13, a new budget loudspeaker and the people were surprised by the range and musicality that it has been able to express for the 2 days.
It has been driven by:
- The Source, the gorgeous CD Player of Einstein Audio
- The absolute Tune, the integrated Einstein Amplifier
and on the analog side there was
- Roksan Xerses turntable
- The Turntable Choice, phono preamplifier of Einstein Audio
We, of course contributed with the Power Harmonization, what else ;-)
Here to the pictures
Rarely was our room not full and not visited. The contacts have been several and well promising. The cooperation with Grandinote, Astin Trew, Blumenhofer Acoustics and Acoustic Signature has been fruitful. The results will be fruitful as well.
Here to see some pictures of the event, and here to watch the movie of Andrea Vitali presenting our products
We all know that the Munich High End is the most important european HiFi exposition. We have been present in area A03-B04. A show without playing music but lot of time to talk with lot of people. At the show we presented: - the complete cabling by Cammino HP and his Power Harmonizer - the complete line of Grandinote Power Amplifiers - the Loit Passeri CD Player - our nearly complete product range including the new introduced products. The Wiki was only present as development prototype
As usual, during the evenings, after show, we continued our show with special guests in Walkertshofen. Instead of going to dinner somewhere we spent time listening for music in our company.
