      Comments about Avalon M5 Mono Pure Class A Microphone Preamp:

      The Avalon M5 preamp brings transparency and brilliance to my voiceover sessions and recordings. With it's simple to use controls and uncluttered design, the M5 makes it easy to raise the bar on the quality of your sound and the recording. Whether you're singing, performing voiceover, or recording a live instrument; you will hear nuances and details in the performance that make the difference. There are no EQ or compression controls for a reason. This device is all about bringing out every bit of detail in your performance, not coloring it. For me, the well-built Avalon M5 microphone preamp has been a great investment and fine addition to my studio.
