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

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 did not understand what was meant to be, until we participated ourselves to the event.
The Finest Brands will contribute to promote our Brand in the USA: we understood, it is a great compliment made to us, combined with that world wide known brands, means for us a certification of quality and level of our product.
Soon a new distributor will appear in our web pages!
These are the words of our Sales-Rep in Austria:
The Show was amazing, if we exclude the heavy burden to transportFor the first time it was not HiFi but music - Really a show...And both power harmonizers were amazing.

...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.
We spent a whole day at A Capella, one of the world leading manufacturer for Horn Loudspeakers.
As development system we were using a one way Laudatio loudspeaker, a small bookshelf which is 'just' a development reference project of A Capella which will only see the light if there will be a minimum order.
The source was an Einstein CD Player, one of the best CD Player in the world.
The power amplifier was a simple MaiA of Pro-Ject box Design, but believe me, more than sufficient for the task.
We spent the whole day, as I mentioned, trying to understand each-other products and find a way to implement new ideas in our power harmonizer.
Alfred Rudolf has been keen on working with us, at least as much as we have been keen on working with him!
I think all of us profited of this cooperation development day.
Fact is that we were really astonished. Yes, really astonished about the big result that even small changes could bear. Astonished, by the quality of the products we were working with. Flabbergasted by the ideas we collected.
It was a start and a first rough idea. It is up to us to extend and implement it.
We have known some more CDs and authors, some of them will become reference for us to work with.
Thanks to Armin, Alfred and Hermann to have made it possible!
Here to the Gallery with some pictures of the day.
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!!
Well, Blumenhofer Acoustics was in fact the host, where we had our listening and recording sessions.
Goal of those days was to generate a CD recording it directly from the LP. A challenge for the recording engineers after that!
Our Part, of course, You can imagine it... enjoy here the pictures taken, for the CD will take until the next Munich High End!
Marc van Berlo from Qualityhifi.nl issued a valuable review of our Power Harmonizer in Dutch.
Here You can read his review.
I do not understand Dutch language that much, but in the end Marc purchased the H 3.1 from our Dutch distributor, I think this is the best reference!
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.
I can tell you. They have been long days, but really fruitful.
The system was composed by:
- Loit Passeri CD Player
- Dr. Feickert Analogue Turntable
- Grandinote Celio Pre Phono
- Grandinote Domino and Demone Power amplifiers
- Blumenhofer Acoustics Gran Gioia Loudspeakers
- Cammino HP Power Harmonizer and cabling
