Steve Shade - MoFi Electronics

During one of the few press conferences organized recently as a classic live meeting, not a video chat, I was particularly interested in a presentation of MoFi Electronics - manufacturer of turntables and accessories related to vinyl records playback, which stormed onto the market a few years ago, almost immediately winning many important awards. For many music lovers, this equipment is already well known but the history of its creation and the people responsible for it are not. I quickly concluded that a meeting in the real world is a perfect opportunity to find out all about it. Steve Shade, the representative of the American company, shared many interesting facts with me during a short conversation over coffee. It was not only a story of MoFi Electronics. During this meeting, I felt like I was listening to the latest news from a world that included other well-known brands - Balanced Audio Technology, Spiral Groove, EAR Yoshino, Harmonic Resolution Systems, and Fender. And that was just the beginning.

Josef Zellner - Dual

Dual's beginnings can be traced back to 1900 when brothers Christian and Joseph Steidinger began manufacturing watches and turntable parts. Ten years later, the Gebrüder Steidinger company began manufacturing power supplies to allow turntables to operate using mains electricity. It was not long before Dual started making their turntables. After the war, they became the largest manufacturer of this type of equipment in Europe, employing over 3,000 people in several factories. Later the brand expanded to offer customers complete hi-fi systems with amplifiers, tuners, cassette players, and speakers.

Pro-Ject Debut PRO

Pro-Ject offer high-quality hi-fi products at a reasonable price for discerning music lovers since 1991. They started with turntables because they are the first choice for the most natural and affordable music reproduction. The company's focus has always been on materials and technology. Functionality always dictated the shape and design of their turntables. To this day, Pro-Ject's designs are clean and functional in the spirit of the first Pro-Ject made of the highest quality materials - MDF, steel, aluminum, glass, and carbon. The result is always a simple-looking but high-quality, great-sounding product at a low price.
