Le Butch, 25.02.2020
aber auch ein stolzer Preis. Nach positiven Erfahrungen mit Avalon habe ich dieses Teil für den Stereobetrieb im Studio angeschafft. Es handelt sich beim V55 um zwei, unter einer gemeinsamen Frontblende zusammengeschraubten V5 (Schwermaschinenbau, hält wahrscheinlich solange wie ein Lada).
Klanglich ist das Teil im Mic- wie Line-Eingang völlig neutral und es geht die Sonne auf. EQ Variationen sind wählbar. Als DI-Box für Gitarre und Bass perfekt. Bei akustischen Instrumenten in Verbindung mit KM 183 und KM 184 oder bei Vocals mit TLM 49 (wie sicher auch bei anderen guten Mikros) ein seidiger Genuss - wenn man ein Signal quasi ohne Färbung wünscht. Wer es gefärbt mag, ist hier völlig verkehrt. Leider hängt bei meinem Gerät vom ersten Moment an die rechte VU Anzeige bei + 3dB fest, ich habe aber keine Zeit, es zurückzusenden (sonst 5 Sterne). Wird der Pegel eben geschätzt oder anderer Stelle gemessen. Vielleicht kommt ja mal jemand von Avalon vorbei und repariert es.
Für eine neutrale Eingangslinie ein wunderbares Gerät, wie alle anderen Avalons auch (hatte auch den 737, den U5 und den 2055 im Regelbetrieb). Fazit: Für wen es passt, passt es, und zwar perfekt.

PS: Was den 737 angeht, bitte unbedingt das neue UAD Plugin ausprobieren, bin begeistert.
