Next generation DI from Avalon.
The Avalon V5 DI-RE-MIC PREAMPLIFIER is an ultra-highperformance professional preamplifier, DI and RE-amper.Created for maximum versatility, the V5’s sonic signature -“Deep and Controlled Bass, Musical Mid-Range and enhancedVocal Projection” join a unique set of user features including -100% discrete Pure Class A amplification, Avalon’s musical“passive” TONE-BANK™, professional VU meter with dualpeak LED’s, multiple outputs including an instrument leveltransformer isolated Re-amp. Designed to optimize absolutesignal integrity and musical performance, the V5 is ideal forribbon, dynamic and condenser microphones, bass guitar,acoustic instruments, electric guitars, keyboards, electromusicsynthesizers and very low output passive pickups.The state-of-the-art DI input stage, provides a very-highimpedance “zero-load” effect on sensitive pickups andkeyboards, while maintaing massive input headroom to+36dB before overload.
Avalon DI-preamplifiers have been in use around the worldsince 1985. They have found their way into the world's leadingmusician’s rigs and recording sessions and have been featuredon thousands of the best selling (and sounding) albums, liveperformances and downloads. The V5 includes the best of theAvalon U5 DI functions with a studio quality preamplifier anda new “sonic addition”. Two alternate solid-state topologiesare cascaded, to provide a rich, low mid-range harmoniccontent not offered in other Avalon preamplifiers. This featureempowers the V5 with a new scale of sonic character.
MINIMUM SIGNAL PATH DESIGN
The V5 includes a very high quality input transformer withdual microphone input impedance loading for perfect mic/cablematching, high-cut switch for eliminating unwanted acousticpickup and high frequency noise, headphone monitor ampand DC coupled, 100% Class A output amplifiers for definedbass control. A buffered “thru” output for zero-instrument-loadtuners or power amplifier inputs. An internal toroidal powertransformer supplies fully discrete high-voltage regulators forlow noise operation and sealed silver relays optimize theminimal signal path design.
