Allen & Heath Unveils Xone:96 Analog DJ Mixer

Xone-96

After 15 years of producing the trusted Xone:92 UK-based Allen & Heath have announced the release of Xone:96, a brand new and eagerly anticipated analog DJ mixer.

The unit boasts two dedicated FX sends, four stereo input channels with four-band EQ, two stereo inputs with all-new three-band parametric EQ, two auxiliary stereo return channels and a separate master insert for outboard FX hardware.

Obligatory press release gush from Senior Product Manager David Morbey:

“The launch of Xone:96 marks a highly significant moment for us, stemming as it does from our determination to take account of and act on feedback from the DJ community. The status of Xone:92 as an undisputed classic was something we took very seriously when developing Xone:96. It was clear that we couldn’t afford to lose its essence but also that we should seek to exceed the expectations of those who were pushing us to deliver another cutting-edge mixer. It isn’t overstating the case to say every fader, knob, button and switch has been subject to a forensic level of attention. Xone:96 is the answer to every question we were asked.”

Xone:96 will hit stores this month, with an MSRP of US$1999, €1799 and £1599.

Key features:

Legendary Xone analogue design
6+2 channel layout
Dual 24- channel 32Bit/96kHz soundcards
Traktor Scratch Certified
Dual Xone VCF filters with Crunch distortion
Xone 4-Band EQ
Two independent CUE systems
