Entry-Priced DJ Mixer Available


Allen & Heath is shipping the new Xone:22, a 2-channel analog DJ mixer offering high quality audio and a professional feature set at a $399 US MAP price. Here's what A&H have to say...
The smallest and most affordable Xone mixer to date, the Xone:22 is equipped with Allen & Heath's characteristic sound and build quality, plus professional-grade features that would normally be found in the booth of a top-rated club.
At the heart of the feature set is a "lite" version of the renowned analog Voltage Control Filter (VCF) system offering low-pass and high-pass filters, frequency sweep and 'mild to wild' resonance control. There is also a soft-switched effects loop to bring in external effects, which are routed back in through the filter system.
The new mixer has two stereo channels with dual phono/line inputs, and the phono inputs can be configured to line if no RIAA (vinyl) sources are in use. There is a 3-band total kill EQ, crossfader curve control switch, and the maximum output level is a generous +25dBu.
The main mix output and mic input utilize professional balanced XLRs, and there is a dedicated record output. The Xone:22 is equipped with comprehensive monitoring facilities, including a booth output with its own volume control, a cue mix control, and 'cue-to-master' switch to preview the master output. There are also 10-segment LED meters with selectable bar or dot mode display for each channel.
"We've raised the bar on entry level mixer design with the Xone:22," explains Xone designer, Andy Rigby-Jones. "It's the first mixer at this price point to have a full cut isolator/EQ, accurate metering, quality faders and pro standard audio headroom. Incorporating a 'lite' version of our now legendary Xone filter system is the icing on the cake. We want to offer the bedroom DJ a quality performance tool and a taste of the professional club experience."
To complete the club quality effect, the Xone:22 is finished with UV sensitive ink screen for improved low light legibility.
