UA Solo 110 experience?

every review mostly focuses on the "character" of the 610 and what a great bass di it makes. Is this a case of gladhanding reviews glancing over a product because it sucks? I have no place to test a 110, and no reviews with any depth of infromation. anyone own/use/used it? looking at blue robbie too, FWIW. they take a huge dump on resale used for some reason.

Hey Starang,

I haven't tried the solo 110, but maybe this will help you out. I believe that the 8110 uses basically the same circuit design, minus the vintage and saturated modes. When I was looking into getting this rig, I came upon this link which has audio samples. Hope this helps.

I have a 110 and honestly I'm not that in love with it. It seems a little veiled, doesn't seem to have all that much headroom and if you crank up the gain for some "character" it isn't all that pleasant to me. fwiw- I tend to like my Grace Design stuff on most sources a lot more. Obviously YMMV

Best regards,

Solo 610

The UA solo 610 is probably a better buy for the same money. The tube allows you to add warmth and pleasing distortion. It's the same pre but a tube version of it. Note that the 610 has been used over the years for countless grammy award winning records . Norah Jones , Frank Sinatra, and Sammy Davis Jr. just off the top of the head. Sounds good. I have one. Different than my Vintech but an asset.

I compared the Solo 110 with the DAV BG No 1U side by side and prefered the DAV by far (incl. the DI). For vocals I like the 610 better.
