You can always hook up an extra divice on the return if you want :D
Dragos Fram
why they shorten the length of the faders on xone 23 ? I really liked more the old faders :( it really worth the upgrade from 22 to 23 ?
Emi Galván
Great review!\nQUESTION: Whats the difference between 23 and 250? Just Louder or better audio Quality? Where can I found a sound comparison? The 23 doesn't have THRU CROSSFADE? How can you disable it?\nTHANKS!
Emiliano Maggio

Ecler nuo 3.0 better sound.

The input situation on the Xone 23 isn't just a personal thing it's a major design goof from Allen & Heath, they deserve to sell none of these mixers based on that goof alone. 2014 when this came to market it's years out of minimum spec, I don't care how good it sounds, basic functionality please! \n\nPoor design thinking...

The X1 in white wow love to get one.

can you connect the DJM 250 to traktor on a laptop with an interface?
Mario García
Does anyone knows a good two channel or more mixer with bpm counter?
The only thing I don't like about the DJM250 filters is that their resonance is too high for my taste. The Xone let you control how much you want with a dedicated knob, though you only have one available.

i was along bit ago going to get that mixer at the end .good this i did not as im a scratch mix dj
HI! I'm wondering what kind of external effects can work with Xone 23.  I wanted to buy pioneer rmx 500 you said it not work like we can hear, but it sounds like it because effect was turn of to max right? What if I plug effect with full wet which has volume control? maybe eventide time factor? or BOSS - DD-7 | Digital Delay?

Can i put a effect unit on djm 250 in one of the masters and return it to one of the aux and have a “send and return” function?
Robin Ghosh
Tidy shirt!
Roots Pablow
No reason not to get the A&H if you play vinyl and your decks are always gonna be connected to the mixer anyway.

what does sound better with vinyl the xone 23 or kontrol z2 ?
Steven Taylor
He went way too easy on the Allen and Heath
Tim Staes
Why oh why is there no master metering on the A&H Xone 23. Thats where a mixer is for in the first place
If you use the effects in traktor with the xone & a x1 will that work?
Yo Sr X
Track sound back please!

Is'nt The First 2 Tracks He mixes, loops and fades Too Blind to See It and Ripgroove ?
Is it a mixer that can eliminate clipping without a computer or without using daw or software ?

Now it's ocwerd
Wish I'd seen this before getting the Xone:23, as this is exactly how I felt about it. Fortunately, I was able to return it to get the DJM-250. :)
To clarify, my question is aimed at the Pioneer DJM 250.
No numark mixers? no denon? Stanton? these videos are missing a lot of the really common budget mixers. there is some good info here it just seems like he is ignoring a lot of other products that are totally deserving of this list. It feels incomplete as is.
