allen & heath Xone mixers - i have used two recently - a 92 and i think a 62 - brilliant quality and feel to the pots and faders

r.e. Allen and Heath mixers - a friend of mine is a dealer and he does not recommend the filter models as the filters seem to blow. Shame. They look a bit plastic too..

i don'tlike allen & heath mixers at all. while i admit that the sound coming out of them is very good, and every rig guy's wet dream, there are a couple of things about them that really piss me off.

1st off, having 2 bass equilisers on each channel. i know this can give a much better degree of control over a mix, but only if you have 2 pairs of hands... it's very frustrating if you don't. second, if you change the eq's i've never been able to hear it in the headphones... you might well be able to do this, but i've never been able to find anyone who can show me how it works. third, the led display for the volume on each channel is way too short, which makes a huge difference when you're trying to keep the output volume level. especially when in our scene the quality/level of mastering varies wildly too.

What about the pioneer DJM-600? Its been recommended 2 me by quite a few people includin some veteran djs and its a bit cheaper than the ecler + Allen and Heath. Altho it aint got the filters on it, its solid and has some other wicked creative FX. Reckon I'll probably get the silver one, as soon as i get the cash 2gther! (so probably never then!)

i think you'll find a filter as one of the Fx :Smile3: does auto beat sync to the mxining if you feel lazy too

any one used the behringer *ahem* copy of it? much cheaper.. dunno how much sound quality / the FX suffer tho..

Wicked! That just makes the pioneer even more desirable! I've used 1 of the behringers at a couple of parties and it seemed pretty good 2 me - altho I didn't use any of the fx, it seems as solid as the pioneer but I cant comment on the durability. THey r fucking cheap tho compared 2 any other mixer and they have so much functionality! Its just makes u think that they must have compromised somewhere along the line, but who can argue with that £120 price tag!
