True Systems Ships P-Solo Ribbon Preamp
TRUE Systems is finally shipping its P-SOLO Ribbon preamplifier, a single-channel microphone pre that uses the circuitry of TRUE’s multichannel preamps, but with additional gain and tweaks to maximize the performance of ribbon microphones.
TRUE claims the P-SOLO Ribbon produces “superior” sonic results with either vintage or contemporary ribbon microphones, as well as dynamic mics. Like its sibling, the P-SOLO, the P-SOLO Ribbon uses the same balanced, transformerless, and “uncompromising circuitry” of TRUE’s Precision 8 and the P2 Analog. It is built with military-grade, hand-matched components and delivers an undistorted response that reportedly dips down to 1.5Hz and reaches up to 500kHz, and reportedly offers a wide dynamic range with “excellent transient response and low noise.”
Features include high-pass filtering, dual analog outputs, high-impedance instrument input, and four-level metering. It has no phantom power, which is unnecessary for and potentially damaging to ribbon microphones, and it has higher input impedance and gain capability than other TRUE Systems designs.
The TRUE Systems P-Solo Ribbon Preamp costs $745. More information on the True Systems P-Solo Ribbon Preamp.
