"The standard by which other preamps are judged."
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
This preamp (plus a great mike) gives my customers and me no excuse for not recording great vocals. I also have a Joe Meek pre which is dirty and therefore complementary to the Avalon.
Sound
This is the standard to which all others are compared. Beautiful, clean, clear "glassy" tube sound, warm yet clear. The best.
Features
Everything you need in a channel strip: preamp, equalizer, compressor.
Quality
Solid, heavy, metal everything. I worry my rack will break.
Value
I paid $1400 new, so it was worth that to me. It is a bit pricey at the usual $2000 price tag. But worth it!
Manufacturer Support
Haven't had to find out (there's no N/A choice). Everyone I talked to and everything I read says Avalon gives great support.
The Wow Factor
It's a beautiful piece of gear that inspires great confidence. The Avalon name is well known to everyone in this business, like Neumann mikes or Vox amplifiers, it actually brings in customers.

"In a class of it's own"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
Sound
This box produces a big, detailed and warm sound that quite frankly beat the pants off much more expensive pieces, such as some of the Focusrite Red units. I used it in a broad range of applications, ranging from pop/rock to jazz and classical, and it always shined.
Features
The is an extremely flexible unit.
Quality
It is built like a tank, has an excellent fit, looks great and very clean build quality
Value
I would have paid $3,000 for this box. Along with my api outboard gear, and my Distressor, this is one that has never let me down. Buy iy.
Manufacturer Support
Never had any problems, so support was never an issue.
The Wow Factor
It is gorgeous!

"things are not always what they seem"
Overall: 1.5 out of 5 stars
its ok for now but if it messed up i wouldnt get another one
Sound
the avalon is alright a lot of it is hype.i had the chance to compare it to the la 610 mkii on every level an the la610 just sounded better period.depending on what sound your looking for,dont be fooled by the price thinking its the best just cause it cost 2250.00.i feel the la610 was more cleaner,although the avalon has more eq control you have to look at the whole pic.but every piece of gear has pro&cons.
Features
i just wish it wasnt so heavy an that it cost much less
Ease of Use
not complicated at all
Quality
it is built like a train
Value
my opinion this thing is not close to being worth what they sell it for
Manufacturer Support
support was helpful
