Solo is the smaller of the two phono preamps. It is designed to handle moving magnet pickups, that is fixed coil systems. In addition, the solo has a simple LED light on the front.

MM- and MC-Phono-Pre-Amps Duo
The big brother duo has two inputs and picks up signals from both moving magnetic and moving coil pickups. MC summarizes systems with moving coil. In principle, even two turntables can be connected to the pre-amp. Bonus points are available for the integrated 6.35 mm headphone input. This brings advantages because on the one hand, you can enjoy records thanks to the high-quality headphone amplifier without power amp and speakers and on the other hand so even analogue fans without separate headphone amplifier music can enjoy. In addition, the duo has a volume control on the front.

The new phono preamplifiers from Cambridge Audio are the ideal introductory models, but even connoisseurs will get their money’s worth with solo and duo. Because Solo and Duo provide a low-noise electrical environment, they are great for processing the sensor signal of a turntable pickup.
