It’s Allen & Heath. It goes without saying that even for a budget mixer, this is as good as it gets.
For a two channel mixer, the xone:23 is very well equipped. 2+2 channels, a great filter system, a S&R loop, and well specced outputs makes this a beast.
There are cheaper models out there. But you really do get what you pay for.
THE BOTTOM LINE
The Allen & Heath xone:23 is A&H’s unique take on the two channel mixer market. It takes a little getting used to, but once you persevere, it delivers that classic A&H experience without fracturing your bank account.

Ripping up the blueprint for the so called future techno sound, Inpuht takes soaring squelch lines and marries them with melodic overtones, warm bass and shuffling beats. Welcome to the next era of Techno, where the music wears its heart on its sleeve, has a grin on its face and preconceptions are left away from the dance floor. Part of the Meta Junction Recordings collective, Inpuht will rip apart your speaker cones and make the floor jack via an improvised box jam featuring a mix of the original hardware and a few trusted recent favorites. All live. All real. All the time. Constantly searching for enhancements, some gear flips but always at the centre of the rig is the ‘best in class’ Allen & Heath Xone: DB4. http://www.inpuht.com/
