The Avalon U5 Pure Class A instrument DI & preamplifier

is the most powerful direct box available today.

Designed to optimize absolute signal integrity and musical

performance, the U5 includes many features and sonic

excellence unequaled by lesser designs. The U5 is ideal

for bass guitar and acoustic instruments, electric guitars,

keyboards, synthesizers and low output pickups.

Features include state-of-the-art, high input impedance

input stage for zero load effect on sensitive pickups and

keyboards, 100% discrete, Pure Class A signal amplifiers,

practical user features and rugged hardware designed to

deliver true high performance audio for many years.


Avalon U5 DI-preamps have been in use around the world

since 1995. They have found their way into the world’s

leading musicians rigs and recording sessions and been

featured on thousands of the best selling (and sounding)

albums and live performances.


The U5 includes a variable gain Class A preamplifier to

boost low level pickup signals and a high level speaker

input for capturing the live sound of the instruments

amplifier. Six passive tone-EQ curves are also included to

enhance a variety of acoustic and electric instruments. A

high-cut switch eliminates unwanted acoustic pickup and

high frequency noise, while a headphone monitor amp has

been included for personal listening. Twin DC coupled

Class A output amplifiers drive both low level microphone

preamp inputs and high level +4dB inputs for direct to tape

recording or processing. The active-to-thru switch selects

either the instrument input directly or sends the boosted equalized

signal to the amplifier via the front panel jack. A

ground isolation switch eliminates any possible earth loop

or AC buzz problems with complete safety.
