    I was thinking of eventually buying an Avalon U5 Di to front my rig. Send the signal from the Avalon to the house and use the parallel out to go to the rest of my rig. I've been using my engineer's for the studio. And so far I really like the purity. The engineer is having me hook up directly to the avalon, then he's putting that directly to tracking. So far I'm actually disappointed that I bought all the gear I have cause I'm getting a pretty awsome sound just out of the Di.
    Does anyone use the Avalon? Do you think it's worth $550, how about live?

    I've never played through one, but i jammed with a jazz guitarist who ran his guitar (ES-165) to the Avalon, then right into his PA. The sound was fantastic ... clean, warm and full. If you're going to use it regularly, it's probably worth what you have to pay for it.
