Allen & Heath XONE:96 Mixer: Review

Watch our in-depth review of the Allen & Heath XONE:96

Allen & Heath has finally released the successor to the original club standard XONE:92 with their new XONE:96. The XONE:96 is a powerful mixer with both analog and digital circuitry and a host of input and output options for various mixing styles.

The Allen & Heath XONE:96 is built for DJs who use a long list of external devices and a host of external effects modules to make their sets unique. The XONE:96 has eight different line-level inputs, two MIC inputs, four headphone outputs, and more sends and returns than anything else out there on the market.  

The XONE:96 is built like a tank, and it can take a beating. The sound quality is superb, and scratching is a piece of cake with the new onboard Innofader MINI crossfader.
