Tempesta 20 in Amsterdam

Sander wrote to me:

I'm the proud owner of a pair of Blumenhofer speakers for over 5 years now. I happened to stumble upon them, when I visited a dealer (A10Audio, Amsterdam) looking for a different brand of speakers. While I was talking to Alex, the owner of the store, the Blumenhofer Genuin FS2s were making music in the background. I'd never heard music sound so close to the real thing.I quickly forgot about my original plans and we started listening to the FS2s instead. Unfortunately, the Genuin FS2s were a bit out of my price range at the time, but, fortunately, this was right about the time of the introduction of the Tempesta 20. So once those arrived at the dealer, and after some more comparisons, it was an easy choice. We paired it with an Ear Yoshino tube amp and I think it's an astonishing combination.About 3 years ago, we had the option to build a listening room from scratch. Now that it's finished, it's even more clear how good the Blumenhofers really are. They bring across the emotion in every kind of music, from Alt-J to Yo-Yo Ma. They can be very subtle and nuanced but also very dynamic and alive. Truly a dream system!
