Audio specialist Sennheiser announced that its distributed brand, TRUE Systems, has relaunched the highly successful P-SOLO precision mic and instrument preamplifier with significant improvements to the original design and manufacturer specifications. The upgrade, which also applies to the newer P-SOLO Ribbon, is intended to produce noticeable improvements in sonic clarity, long-term reliability and unit-to-unit consistency of the P-SOLO.

The P-SOLO, which is a compact, single-channel preamplifier based on the design and sound of the acclaimed Precision 8 and P2analog preamps, is the perfect solution for home/project studios and delivers uncompromising quality at an affordable price. Updates to the P-SOLO include gold-contact switches, a surface-mount technology (SMT) design, 0.1% precision resistors, and changes to the nomenclature of the front panel, which were implemented as a result of direct feedback from users.

“When we launched the P-SOLO six years ago, our goal was to put a truly high-end, single channel preamplifier in the hands of the serious musician or recording engineer,” commented Tim Spencer, president of TRUE Systems. “In launching the updated P-SOLO, we have taken a proven, best-in-class product and made it even better, improving both the sound and usability. The P-SOLO is now more relevant than ever for anyone who craves professional quality in asmall and flexible package.”

The P-SOLO is a truly diverse preamplifier suitable not only for home and project studios, but also for live and on-location applications. Designed to provide stunning sonic detail with a neutral, musical character, the P-SOLO provides superior results with any type of microphone: condenser, dynamic or ribbon.
