If you were to record, which one and why..........this is strictly a comparison for recording sake.
use whatever's easier for your engineer...
but if you do have a say, i say the u5. the demeter is a terrific preamp, but a dedicated DI box like the u5 is going to be that much more quieter.
course, another more comparative alternative would be the demeter tube di which is what i'm taking to this weekend's session.
Two different monsters.
U5 all the way, one of the past lovers I still regret selling.. One day I will have another.
I actually use both together while recording.
Not much of a comparison...both do their own thing. To me, the Demeter is a far more flexible unit offering a true tube tone, and does so in a way that's designed for the bass to sound like it's going through a tube amp. The U5, IMO/IME, is not terribly flexible and only had one "fairly" useful setting - if you like it, great! If not, you're kinda screwed. For live use, you might find yourself lacking the ability to control your tone according to the room.
Of course, that's not to say I don't love Avalon gear - I use a VT737sp in my rig.
i say use them both and see which sits in the mix better for the song
