I think I've narrowed my preamp decision down to an Avalon U5. Could you guys give me some real world, real gig info on this bad boy. I'm planning on running it with a new QSC PLX2402 bridged into an 8 ohm Avatar 212. What is the biggest difference between the EQ settings, and which ones work best for you guys? I'll be using a Sadowsky Metro 5 string, a Franken P, and a 1966 stock Fender jazz. I'm also interested in knowing how this pre stacks up or compares to other well known pre's, such as the Alembics, Demeters, Aguilars, etc. Thanks!!!!!
