Universal Audio Portable Mic Pre and DIs
Solo 610

Universal Audio have added a couple of high quality ways of getting into your DAW with the new SOLO/610 Classic Vacuum Tube Mic Pre & DI and the SOLO/110 Precision Class A Mic Pre & DI. Many of you will know UA as makers of the DSP accelleration UAD-1 card and associated plug-ins, but they also make very high quality audio devices in hardware. Now that quality is available in these new input devices. “ The Solo series mic-pre/DI combo are all about bringing UA quality, without sonic compromise, to a new audience and at a more 'wallet-friendly' price than ever before." Said Mike Barnes, Director Of Marketing for UA. " These are the real deal- revered 610 and 110 mic-pre's maintaining only the most essential features - what we call 'functionally lean-sonically mean', making the coveted UA sound more affordable but without sacrificing the signature sound."

Solo 110
Unlike stationary rack gear, the SOLO series uses a highly versatile form factor and can be conveniently used in the control room or recording room, on stage or desktop, due to the portable design.
  • Classic Putnam 610 or flagship Precision 110 Mic Pre and DI
  • Portable design for studio, desktop or stage
  • Gain, Level, and impedance selection for maximum tonal variety
  • Convenient DI features-Mic or Line level output plus Thru
  • UA build quality and heritage, hand-assembled in USA Carefully crafted to maintain the sonic elements of their more expensive siblings like the 2-610/M610, 8110/4110, the SOLO series preamplifiers retain the component and sonic standards professionals expect, and combine the tonal variety of all Universal Audio products. The SOLO series is hand-assembled by Universal Audio in California. " We took on the challenge to design a truly great-sounding mic-pre in a new portable form-factor while still including premium components, boutique hand-assembly and quality control in the USA." Said Bill Putnam Jr., UA's Founder and CEO who personally oversaw the establishing of new in-house manufacturing techniques. " This is a significant shift for us and will enable us to be "big boutique" - a manufacturer bringing many of the benefits of meticulous hand-built care to more mass-market audio products." The Universal Audio SOLO 110/ SOLO 610 and DI will be available from Universal Audio dealers worldwide in volume in Q1 2006. Final pricing is TBA, but will be well under $1000.
