A&H XB-14²Allen & Heath has launched a new version of its compact broadcast mixer, XB-14. Based on requests from broadcast users, XB-14² incorporates several new features, including a dedicated audition bus, enhanced stereo channel configurations, updated mic preamps, more flexible monitoring, and a new matt paint finish.

The XB-14² is designed for a range of applications from small radio and internet broadcast studios, to hospital radio, university radio, community radio and larger studios with multiple rooms. It offers features including Telco inputs for telephone callers, mic fader start sensing for external connection and internal automatic muting of the speaker outputs, stereo channel start/cue outputs for transport control, multiple headphone outputs, and an additional stereo bus (Mix B).

The new model includes a stereo Audition bus that allows individual channels to be switched away from the main programme bus for off-air monitoring. The Telco channel EQ has been replaced with variable high-pass/low-pass filters for control of the telephone caller feed signal, there is a new external monitor input level control, the preamps have been enhanced for lower noise and higher bandwidth, and the stereo inputs have more gain and routing options. Finally, the mixer is finished in matt effect paint to reduce surface reflections.

‘Whenever we talk to XB-14 customers, they are always enthusiastic about the mixer’s great sound quality and high number of features packed into in a compact frame – features that make installers and broadcasters’ jobs easier, and combined in a way that makes the XB-14 super flexible in a range of studio setups.’ explains designer, Mike Griffin. ‘Mk2 includes the remaining features that have been requested by end users over the years. We’re sure they are going to be even happier…’

Available immediately, the XB-142 retains its existing retail price.
