Matching its signature analog sound with solid build quality, extensive filter options and Traktor Scratch ready soundcard, the Xone:PX5 doesn’t come cheap but delivers on all fronts, both if you are a straightforward 2 decks DJ or have a complex digital setup.

This mixer truly delivers and it’s a really good blend of analog and digital. The sound is fantastic, the filter, even though it’s just one, sound warm is can be customized in pretty much any way you want. The EQ section sounds warm and full, just as expected from Allen & Heath.

The digital effects are well chosen and all fit the spirit of the mixer: subtle but precise modulation and manipulation of sounds.

Finally, the build quality is solid. The mixer heavy but doesn’t feel like a brick, and everything is well attached and build to last.

PROS CONS
  • Extremely solid build
  • Intuitive layout despite the many functions
  • Traktor Scratch readiness makes hooking up to Traktor a breeze
  • High-quality effects suite, rivaling the industry standard Pioneer DJ effects
  • There is little to dislike here, apart from the price, and even that is quite reasonable.
