Goldmund and Focal Presented at the Hotel Le Bristol by Jefferson Hifi & Video

Focal and Jefferson at Le Bristol

The latest news about the Goldmund Days organized yearly by Jefferson Hifi & Video Team at the Hotel Le Bristol in Paris is that The Focal Stella will also be presented with Goldmund electronics. Goldmund is proud to collaborate for this occasion with this excellent high-end French brand, famous for its Grande Utopia, one of the best and most luxurious speakers available today. A custom configuration will be used in the Mimesis 16 Acoustic Processor for the system presented that will also use the Telos 350 Power Amplifier and the Eidos 20CD Player. We look forward to this high level demonstration and hope to have the pleasure of welcoming numerous Focal customers for this event.

High End Research Show in Singapore: Proteus and Apple

Another show was organized in March in Singapore by the High End Research Team with Goldmund Electronics and the Sonus Faber Fenice Speakers. Proteus demonstrated again its authority on the sound quality of the system and thrilled the large audience that attended the demonstrations.

This show was also the first public Goldmund event that featured a Goldmund system sourced by iTune and controlled by an iPad. The reactions and interest of the youngest visitors clearly showed that the Apple centricity announced last year by Goldmund will be decisive in the conquest of a younger public highly formatted to the iLife!

Product News

Grey Market Alert

We noticed that several heavily discounted new Goldmund products have been sold through non authorized channels lately (mainly from online distribution websites). Goldmund is strictly against this kind of practices that damages its reputation and undermines the work of serious distributors who spend time and money to provide our faithful customers with appropriate service.

We inform you that: * No warranty or service will be offered on units that are not sold by authorized retailers. * Some units sold through unofficial distribution channels are stolen products. As a rule, Goldmund cooperates with the local police departments and provides them with information on these units so they can find who is responsible for the sale and purchase of concealed goods and take the necessary legal actions. * Products with altered serial number tags (removed, defaced, or replaced tags) do not benefit from the Goldmund warranty * Some Goldmund products include safety features that prevent them from functioning other than in their original export country and this definitively. These safety features can be modified by official Goldmund Retailers so we advise you not to purchase new Goldmund equipment elsewhere than in your country of residency. We also advise you to contact your official retailer to make the appropriate changes in your units in case you need to move to another country. * The serial number and type of the grey market units that should not be serviced by our distributors are listed on the Goldmund distributors’ intranet.
