    For sale is a beautiful, excellent, barely used condition Avalon U5. I am the original owner but did not use this much since I don't record much and didn't want to take it out to gigs. This is a wonderful DI and can even be used for practicing since it has a headphone out. Playing through this yields so much depth to each note. Comes with all original packaging and manuals. Two small small dings, one on the upper right corner and one on the lower left corner which may have come that way from the factory machining, I don't remember.

    $599 shipped in the CONUS. PayPal accepted.
