Sooloos € 12.000

A nice optical illusion. If you stare hard at this picture for 5 minutes you see a fat control at the right.

Sooloos was founded in 2004.

In 2008 Sooloos become part of Meridian.

In 2015 Meridian spun Roon Labs out as an independent software developer.

The interface is now available as sotware for PC and Mac.
