Next generation DI from Avalon.
The Avalon V5 follows the tradition of the U5 DI box, which has been in continuous production since 1995 and is used by leading music professionals in both studio and live sound reinforcement applications.
The Avalon V5 introduces a new generation of this tried and true idea, loaded with professional features including a low noise, high-gain, Pure Class A, microphone preamplifier, and a 10 mega ohm instrument DI input with zero impedance loading and a +36dB maximum input capability for active preamp-line sources like acoustic and electric guitars, bass, keyboards and synthesizers.
A transformer-isolated reamping output offers multiple input-output configurations with all inputs available, including polarity reverse. Sealed silver relays provide transparent signal path routing while custom, ultra-high performance rotary switches deliver smooth gain control in accurate 2dB steps.
A unique passive tone selector allows ten contours (six from the U5 tone bank) including two passive high pass filters and two vocal-instrument enhanced passive air-lift low frequency curves.
Additional features include a passive low pass hiss & buzz filter, a wide range, professional analog VU meter with expanded scale -30dB to +18dB with twin peak LED’s for fast signal capture.
The Avalon V5 has a truly unique feature set utilizing 100% discrete, DC coupled, Pure Class A amplifiers for “Deep and Controlled Bass” together with a “Musical Midrange” for enhanced Vocal and Instrument resolution. With reamping options, the passive TONESHAPING network and multiple output choices the Avalon V5 will continues Avalon’s passion and commitment to sonic excellence.
