The SONORA 2 preamp features Sontronics’ proprietary Class A vintage circuit design and is capable of delivering an exceptional standard of audio reproduction with a classy, silky finish for an outstanding price. For ultimate recording and monitoring flexibility, SONORA 2 has two combined XLR & 1/4” jack inputs plus four individual outputs (two XLR, two TRS jack) as well as a –20dB pad, 75Hz high-pass filter, 180° phase reverse switch and 48V phantom power on each channel. Its lightning-quick dynamic ability combined with a linear frequency response and a powerful 66dB of crystal-clear gain and a huge +23dBu of headroom means SONORA 2 is an ideal choice for any professional studio, home or live environment.

Sontronics’ founder, designer and MD Trevor Coley says: “SONORA 2 represents two years of sheer hard work and dedication and I’m so proud of the fact that we’ve done it all, from the circuitry right up to the packaging, right here in the UK. SONORA 2 has all the build quality and attention to detail you’d expect from Sontronics as well as its own signature smooth sound. It really will let you hear more of what actually matters.”
