In mid-2009 we decided to finally start doing for living something that we really like and enjoy. Being discerning music lovers and trained musicians with solid experience in recording, mixing, production and sound restoration on the one side and trained mechanical engineers on the other, we decided to commercialize our long-time hobby and passion, turntable tweaking/upgrading/redesign/building.
We started the "tt recycled" company (turntable recycled), www.ttrecycled.com, with the main intention of offering turntable upgrade/tweaking services along with turntable recycling and redesign. In a short period of time we established ourselves as local turntable specialists, successfully recycling, redesigning and upgrading turntables for local clients. Along with commissioned projects, we produced a number of turntables successfully employing our own design ideas. Soon, these models gained popularity among local audiophiles, winning "The Best sound award" at the Belgrade Hi-Files Show 2010.
Building on the idea of our own turntable design, we wanted to create a high quality record player that would be exceptional. The idea was to combine musicality and beauty in an electro-mechanical object that plays vinyl records. At the same time, our focus was on “easy of use and set-up”.
The result is Hermes DCX turntable.
After extensive listening tests and great success at the 2011 Belgrade Hi-Files show, we decided to offer the Hermes DCX turntable worldwide.
And so, the soulines company was born.
