Yes yes, I know this is old news, but I just couldn’t miss the chance of checking out the relatively new Xone:PX5 mixer out.

So in this video, Jamie introduces us to its key features and why this is truly an excellent update from A&H.

The things are really liked are the new FX module, which sounds great, the fact the 5th channel has all the features of the other 4 except for the channel fader, the advanced filter system that opens up so many creative possibilities…

Video Introduction

My Take

At USD 1.499, this is a definitely solid offering from Allen & Heath, and it should definitely interest serious DJ’s looking for an high-end solution at home/in the studio. I hope to get my hands on a unit soon to review it!
