Avalon microphone preamps have been at the heart of professional and project studios for many years, and the AD2022 is the latest refinement of the essential design. The dual mono AD2022 includes the original sonic capabilities and transparency of the M2, M22 and M5 preamplifiers plus several additional features, including selectable microphone source loading for optimized cable/mic matching, improved high-voltage Class A regulated power supplies, two high Z instrument inputs, variable-passive high pass filter, quality/silver wiring and doubled plated circuit boards for superior low level signal transfer.
The flagship of Avalon's line is popularly considered to be the VT-737sp, but depending on your preferences, the AD2022 may be the better choice for you. The sonic differences between the VT-737sp and the AD2022 can be compared to a spotlight (VT-737sp) and a flood light (AD2022). The VT-737SP has a "close-up" round sound while the AD2022 is very detailed and open, capturing more of the subtle sub-harmonics and reflections in the room.
