TRUE Systems' P-SOLO Ribbon ($745) is now shipping. The P-SOLO Ribbon is a single-channel microphone preamplifier that uses the circuitry of TRUE Systems' multichannel preamplifiers, but with additional gain and tweaks to maximize the performance of ribbon and dynamic microphones, both vintage and contemporary models.
Like the P-SOLO, the P-SOLO Ribbon uses the same balanced, transformerless circuitry used in TRUE Systems' Precision 8 and P2 Analog. According to TRUE Systems, it is built with military-grade, hand-matched components and delivers an undistorted response down to 1.5 Hz and reaches up to 500 kHz, offering a wide dynamic range with excellent transient response and low noise. Features include highpass filtering, dual analog outputs, high-impedance instrument input and four-level metering.
The P-SOLO Ribbon has no phantom power and offers a higher input impedance and gain capability than other TRUE Systems designs for preventing sonic variations caused by ribbon resonance frequencies that alter the output impedance of the ribbon microphone at those frequencies.
