After weeks of teasing, Allen & Heath have announced its new Xone:96 club mixer.
The successor to the much-loved Xone:92, which has been on the market for 15 years, the 96 sticks to the template set by that classic model. However, it includes many new features aimed at integrating it into today’s digital DJ world.
The 96 retains the analog sound, four band EQ, and filters of the 92, but adds a pair of 32 bit 96 kHz soundcards, which are DVS compatible. The mixer is already supported in the latest version of Traktor Scratch.
There is a second independent headphone cue circuit, allowing two DJs to perform on the mixer at the same time, and extra return channels for advanced effects routing.
Crossfader users will be pleased to hear that the 96 ships with a Mini innoFADER, which means the mixer is a lot more usable for scratching than the 92.
The 96 will be available in August with a suggested retail price of $1,999. More details can be found on Allen & Heath’s website.

Allen & Heath’s new Xone:PX5 mixer was designed to combine the company’s signature analog sound with leading digital connectivity. The idea sounds great on paper, but products that are intended to be best of both worlds sometimes fall short.
On this week’s episode of Tips and Tricks, Mojaxx determines whether Allen & Heath achieved its goal with the PX5.
The Xone:PX5, which Allen and Heath recently teased in a press release, appears to be the successor to the company’s famed analog mixer, the Xone:92. Its features include a built-in sound card, an internal FX engine, and MIDI sync.
By combining the Xone’s classic analog sound with digital functionality, the PX5 has the potential to become the number one mixer for house and techno DJs.
Allen and Heath has yet to reveal the price and release date.
