Whether you’re dusting off your record collection or embracing analogue through the vinyl revival, there’s a unique experience to be had from the moment you drop the needle on your favourite album. To preserve the unique warmth of the vinyl sound, the Solo phono preamplifier has been carefully designed with a state-of-the-art switch-mode power supply and a new surface mounted circuit board layout to reduce unwanted noise.

Attention To Detail

If some records in your collection are a little worse for wear, the subsonic filter will help to eliminate low-frequency rumbles that can be caused by imperfections within your vinyl. Combine this with the balance control for handling potential cartridge imbalances in your record player (that can cause a difference between the left and right channels) and the result is a detailed experience with accurate soundstage.


The Solo phono preamplifier is green at heart with less than half a watt standby power consumption and auto power-down feature if the unit isn’t used after a 20 minute period.
