I have a Xone 32. Very well built and solid sound. For the price I would say one of the best 3 channel DJ mixers around. I also have a Rane Rotary Empath that I like very much. It has a great effects send and is built like a tank, but costs twice as much as the Xone.

lol dumbest mixer design i ever saw : xone 32 !!

led channel meters are non existent ! ok i guess thats maybe not a problem for everyone

headphone knob on the FRONT ! ok i guess you can also adapt to that

i dont even go into that filter recall sh!t they put on there for no reason. i mean who needs that, if i need effects i dont buy a xone anyway.

filter frequenz knob? no its a fader .. never saw this ever on a mixer. why?!?

but ... where are the channel gains..? hmmm... u think they are over the EQs ? no thats the AUX knob ... where are they? they are on the FUCKING BACK lol

but who needs channel gains .. most DJs play the whole time in the red.

seriously dont buy that mixer.
if you want a xone buy the 42.

Maybe check out Ecler Nuo 3. My mate has it and it's a very nice little mixer. The big eq knobs are great.

A&H just can't seem to design a mixer right (especially on the cueing front), which puts me off as I know they sound great and use quality compnenents. The 42 is better at least, and has filters if that's something you need.

I like my Ecler Nuo3 - a couple of slight design issues (which I think were corrected in the 3.0) but nice mixer overall. No filters though.

42 sounds way better than the 32, if you could, go for the 42 or even 92!

92 is for home use just silly, its just wasting money in my opinion :)
