The SOLO/610 delivers the classic Putnam 610 tube console sound in a rugged, highly versatile mic preamp design. This unit provides the silky, vintage warmth of the original console’s mic amp design, and will flatter any microphone or instrument with its signature sound. Thanks to its convenient form factor, the SOLO/610 can be conveniently used in the control room or the recording room, on stage, or on a desktop. Functionally lean but sonically mean, the SOLO/610 maintains the character of the 610 console — at a price every serious project studio can afford. Unlike its predecessors, the SOLO/610 has continuous Gain control with even greater range, allowing for more precise gain structuring and doubles as input signal padding. The SOLO/610 has all the essential features and maintains the 610's flexible dual impedance selection for both Mic and DI inputs. The SOLO/610 also includes DI features like Thru plus Ground Lift and a versatile Line/Mic level output switch. The SOLO/610 is hand-assembled by Universal Audio in the USA.
