Stereophonic sound entails the accurate reproduction of independent left and right audio channels. In that respect, Solo has a secret weapon…the built-in ability to reproduce stereo sound when coupled with Como Audio’s Ambiente wired speaker. Nudge Solo’s rear switch over to “ST” and connect Ambiente’s audio cable to Solo’s Speaker output, and you are living large. From that point on, Ambiente will handle the right channel heavy lifting while Solo will dedicate itself to the left channel duties. Ambiente’s 12’ (3.6 meter) cable allows for plenty of separation between the two channels, providing a soundstage as fitting for a large orchestra as it is for an intimate Jazz trio or a soloist.
Once connected, Ambiente doubles Solo’s maximum output power from 30 watts in Mono to 60 watts total in Stereo, resulting in 3dB more headroom. It also provides a roughly 10Hz improvement in bass. Solo was engineered to sound great on its own, but when partnered with Ambiente, they become a dynamic duo that will give both of your ears a pleasurable workout.
Although Ambiente requires a wired connection to Solo, it gets all of its power from Solo’s integrated Class D digital stereo amplifier. Thus, Ambiente does not require an external “brick” power supply or a power cord. Ambiente’s single cable does it all.
If you plan to, or already have, made a wise investment in Solo, you can make your investment pay off even more with the addition of Ambiente.
