Allen & Heath is now shipping its new Xone:22, a 2-channel analog DJ mixer designed to offer "high quality audio and a professional feature set" at a $399 US MAP price.
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 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.
To complete the club quality effect, the Xone:22 is finished with UV sensitive ink screen for improved low light legibility. For full product information, visit www.xone.co.uk.
