The Xone:23 is Allen & Heath’s latest two-channel DJ mixer, featuring an enhanced version of the Xone filter with resonance control, VCA faders, three-band total kill EQ, illuminated switches, crossfader curve selector, with styling inspired by the flagship Xone:DB4.

The mixer’s Voltage Control Filter (VCF) system offering low-pass and high-pass filters, frequency sweep and ‘mild to wild’ resonance control. There is also an FX loop to connect to third party FX units, which route back in through the filter system. The two stereo channels feature independent level controls for each input, enabling up to four stereo sources to be simultaneously routed to the mix, as well as the dedicated send and return system for external FX. The mixer can also be upgraded with the Innofader for enhanced scratch performance, available as an accessory from Allen & Heath.

The Xone:23’s main mix output and mic input are on balanced XLRs, and are accompanied by a dedicated record output. There are also comprehensive monitoring facilities, including a booth output with its own volume control, a cue mix control, and signal levels clearly displayed on the nine-segment peak hold meters.

‘We put a lot of effort into engineering the new Xone:23 to ensure we could offer our customers a high performance, feature packed stylish mixer, yet still retain the competitive price of its predecessor, the Xone:22,’ says Xone design manager Andy Rigby-Jones. ‘Xone:23 takes its place in the Xone family without sacrificing either performance or features.’

Styled on the Xone:DB4, the Xone:23 includes soft touch, backlit controls, light-piped meters and a distinctive new shaped steel faceplate.

The Xone:23 will ship in April 2014, with an SRP of £242 plus VAT.
