Avalon M5, and question for Jules....

Has anyone used the Avalon M5 with great results? Good character? Worth the money? Opinions?

And Hey Jules! When I tried to search for the Avalon M5, it wont let me search becuase M5 is too short, and that makes it rough. I couldnt see wading through 200 posts looking for the right one. Is there a way to remedy this or get around it?

You just have to search "Avalon" and wade through it all...

I've used the M5 many times but own the AD2022 which is similar.

I wouldn't describe it as a character piece. It's clean, transparent and has good depth (very open). A good choice on many instruments and voices that you want to preserve the actual sound without coloring it. I never use it with electric guitar and acoustic drums as Neve's and API's are what float my boat.

If you're looking for attitude, look elsewhere but as a clean pre, it's great. I find the Avalon gear for lack of a better word to sound "posh".
