Allen & Heath Xone:42 (Old Design)
already said lower


config is good, it is clear and spaced.


Good sound quality, I also UREI 1603, it is the same see a bit better for the UREI but it sounds the same.
The eq is good but not great, its not enough for me to cut the bass and high frequency and more I find them more sensitive.
for the filter, I think its been joujoue for kid ... yeah really!


I UREI 1603 and I sold the allen for her and I do not regret it, I do not know if I'll keep the UREI by what I have ecler SCLAT .. but in any case a investisser UREI is cheaper and quality sound.
No, I think not buy me allen price its listening better to invest or UREI or old ecler smac ...

jean_91's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A must in its class"

Allen & Heath Xone:42 (Old Design)
Is rack?


What is the type of connection (RCA Jack, XLR ...)?

RCA inputs except microphone xlr
Master xlr
Booth rca
Fx send / return RCA in

What is the sampling precision (bits / kHz

SIGNED! This table is 100% analog, there is no conversion of sound!


The general configuration is simple?

Simpler you die!

The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

Very clear, very sufficient, thank you also A & H for providing the three curves of filters available

Common functions are they easily accessible?

Bah seen that there is THAT usual functions on this table ... it is a control knob =!


The console is transparent?

Not at all! Instead, it restores a potato in digital sound and gives full scope to the sound of vinyl! It has a separate sound ... A & H sound what.

The equalizer is effective?

Very effective! It is very different from the Pioneer, but any contact with the desired frequencies, and above all, his way of cutting frequencies is incredible clean, everything is fluid and precise.

She introduced the breath?

From what? 0 while the sound volume is perfect.


How long you use it?

8 months

Did you tried many other models before buying it?

DJM 500-600-700-800-900 (special mention for the 900 that stands out completely from the previous Pioneer tables at any point of view)
Amix RMC and 55 RMC 75 (The best restaurants I've tried. Incredibles, a warmer and more accurate than A & H)
Rodec MX3000 (Very good food too, but I really did not like the fader curve, logarithmic for me too)

What is so special that you love the most, least?


- Sound quality
- Manufacturing quality
- The filter, and intuitive "patatise" everything that goes on its way
- Race of faders, nonlinear but clearly explained
- VCA faders (affects the line voltage = no crackling / clips)

The least

- The crossfader, to the touch just too cheap for my taste, a lover of scratch will change it for a Penny & Glide or Innofader.
- Compared to Pioneer, the volume released is lower, which is problematic when one connects to a fixed place where it is impossible to touch the amps
- One filter. For that price I'm not complaining, but a second offer so many more possibilities
- The XLR microphone input, I will have much preferred a combo jack / xlr in which I can plug my headphones when needed

How would you rate the quality / price?

Brief for this price (700 euros nine) and use that I make (house of any kind with traktor scratch pro 2) I am fully satisfied, and all the djs full piopio who have tried it on my benefits I have confirmed that this was an incredible table ... but it lacked an effects section, which is replaced by the plethora of Traktor fx.

With experience, you do again this choice?

Before repeating this choice should it fail, and believe me it was the sound at your fingertips!
I highly recommends that they, but I would try the Vestax PMC 280 before giving a final opinion. Choose a mixer that is very personal! Capabilities directly affect how you play. This one is really smooth but I can just as easily make transitions super clean with 3 or 4 channels during a House session prog and tribal, that the grind for a set bluntly electro-clash.

tonistark's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Allen & Heath Xone:42 (Old Design)
- Yes it is rack-mount brackets with options (not expensive).
- 4 stereo channels (channels 1 and 4 phono / line channels 2 and 3 line / line) and a microphone input XLRr (eq 2bandes) + front USB connection to control traktor mix or record directly on the pc (easy!)

- Master XLR and RCA Booth + xfx send return (super convenient to connect one or EXF Kaos pad)


The general configuration is very well prepared, we found sy directly.
The manual is in English and not difficult to understand if you qq concept but all the functions of the table are usable without reading it is so well constructed.
Filters are great and you can plug an efx tjrs or kaos pad is easily anticipated serious xfx send return. We control this serious button Wet / Dry Filter button below. I find it much thought.


Super sound, ca bumps as well as a xone 92. No breath.
The only slight snag is 3-band equalizer compared to the 92 which has a 4 band. Otherwise it works very well and it's kill 6 db.
They are very pleasant to the touch. There is enough space.


I use it for 2 weeks.
I love the sound is really pure and bumps I saw the difference (javais a DJM600).
I tried the nuo5, DJM600, DJM800 and on the other table.
The value for money is exellent, pretty kick-Allen & Heath I was able to buy a barrel price € 930, can be found in the vicinity of € 1000 and I said that she has nothing to envy its big sister the xone 92 (which begins a day before).
Yes I would do this choice, okay it lack of effect but the € 350 kaos pad and send xfx return is expected it would be wrong to do without it! Go for it on the table is a joy

warazor's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Allen & Heath Xone:42 (Old Design)
- Is the rack?
- How many lanes, bus attendant, of dparts, returns ...)?
4 channels, 2 phono, send an XFX return for external effect, a record, a booth and a master
- What is the type of connectors (RCA, Jack, XLR ...)?
xlr master, if RCA
- The effects section is it intgre? ...
the famous analog filter Allen & Heath


- The configuration gnrale Is it easy?
extremely, it is one of the best damn tables, airy and enjoyable to use my croisbr /> - The usual functions are they easily accessible?
yes, of eq knob prcis (musically and mcaniquement), the faders are great (VCA)
- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
in English, but full trs


- The console is transparent?
oula yes
- Introduced she breath?
non oula
- The qualiseur is it effective? ...
excellent sound only regret is not having a 4-band as xone92
the level of the table, I will teach you anything, it has the same sound that xone92, the output level is standard, the gain knob (as in phono line) does not dpassent noon ditto for the master (my ears can not dja more)

the sound is incredibly sublim particularly when the filter is enabled (that is, all the time) and the rsonance is max (all the time for me)
become incredible low ... in fact it is the secret of the sound of xones, the filter always active


- How long have you use it?
1 week, I had a dnx100 before, and I believe this and other tables
- How do you report qualitprix?
this table will soon be around 900 950 euros I think
given that a DJM800 COST 1400 and the xone42 is better ... no arflchir
is an excellent shot from A & H, and this table is for me the moment in the REFERENCE 4 track with a great sound
xone92 is a (better table works for me), without the 4-band eq and no other functions dbiles and useless (3 knob noon ... 2 ... 2-way micro filters ... 1 Cross P & G. .. ... 2 master outputs) but also enjoyable to use

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
oh yes!
