SONTRONICS SONORA 2 - dual-channel solid-state preamplifier/DI

SONTRONICS SONORA 2 dual-channel preamp/DI
The SONTRONICS SONORA 2 is a British-made dual-channel preamplifier/DI featuring two powerful, discrete solid-state Class A amplifiers, capable of delivering an exceptionally high standard of audio reproduction for a surprisingly reasonable price.

"It sounds fantastic, there are no two ways about it.
It has a real British vintage vibe without sounding
like a me-too copy of anything else. Amazing!"

JAMES IVEY, Musician/Producer/Reviewer

Sontronics' unique proprietary vintage circuit design brings a touch of silkiness and class to your recordings, subtly smoothing out any harshness while retaining the integrity of the signal. Its lightning-quick dynamic ability combined with a linear frequency response means that SONORA 2 delivers an audio reproduction full of energy and perfect detail, faithful to the original source signal. Put simply, you will hear more of what matters!

Providing a powerful 66dB of crystal-clear, low-noise gain in 6dB steps, SONORA 2 can handle an almost infinite variety of sources from microphones to electric guitars, synths and digital pianos to re-amplifying pre-recorded audio tracks.

SONORA 2 boasts low noise and a quality, transparent sound with a quick response to transients. The Class A circuitry is Sontronics' own design and the sound has have a vintage vibe about it (although it's not a clone of anything else) with a very smooth top end"
BERNARD BUTLER, Artist/Writer/Producer

Each channel also features a 75Hz high-pass filter, -20dB pad, 180-degree phase reverse and independent 48V phantom power, providing you with useful and functional control at your fingertips.

Since audio signals exit simultaneously from each channel's XLR and quarter-inch jack outputs, various recording and monitoring set-ups are possible, further enhancing SONORA 2's flexibility and your creativity.

"You're really on to something with your preamps…
SONORA sounds fantastic!"

BRETT CHASSEN, Engineer/Producer

SONORA 2's desktop footprint (it's only 22 x 16cm and stands around 7cm high) makes it ideal not only for studio recording but also as a portable front-end in live performance and stereo recording applications beyond the studio environment.
