Allen & Heath
Our good friends over at American Music and Sound were once again showing off their goodies at the 2013 DJ Expo with their Lineup of Reloop gear, Vestax controllers and Allen & Heath Mixers. We were also able to catch DJ Angelo from the UK ripping it up on the new US-Bound Reloop RP-6000mk6 Super OEM turntables and RMX-80 mixer that will be available state-side immediately! The Vestax Typoon and professional VCI-380 and VCI-400 controllers were in the booth along with the Allen & Heath Mixer range.
Our good friends over at American Music and Sound were at the 2012 DJ Expo with their Lineup of Vestax controllers and Allen & Heath Mixers. The Vestax Typoon in both color configurations were these to use along with the professional VCI-380 and VCI-400 controllers both running in Serato. Allen & Heath had the DB2 and the DB4 getting the most love from the DJ's as soon as anyone touched one. Check out the Exhibit video so you can see what you're missing at the Atlantic City DJ Expo this year.
Our good friend's over at Allen & Heath decided to drop a gem on us with the new Xone:DB2 professional Effects Mixer with full MIDI control capabilities. I was able to get the Xone:DB2 in the lab for a nice long test run to put it through the paces and see how it handles. This is our first 4-channel style mixer review here on DJbooth.net as we mainly focus on hip-hop style DJ's, but how could I turn down a DB2? Check out the full HD-Video review inside to see how it stacks up.
Last year we brought you a complete review of the Xone flagship professional DJ headphones, the XD:53. We thought they were almost perfect, but did not include a detachable cable which is usually the first point of failure on most professional DJ headphones. Thankfully Allen & Heath have decided to right the wrong by updating the XD:53 to include the detachable/replaceable cable and updating the color scheme with a new gunmetal look. Check out the press release, intro video, and price after the jump.
Allen & Heath has just announced the new Xone:K2, a USB DJ MIDI controller that will integrate seamlessly with their Xone:DB-series mixers via the new X:LINK connection port. The Xone:K2 can be used with any DJ software with all 52 hardware controls (faders, buttons, and knobs) being fully MIDI mappable to the user's needs. They can even be chained together to give you even more control than ever. The K2 will come with a bag that will double as a stand to bring the Xone:K2 up to the same height as mixers and decks. More information inside.
Allen & Heath has just announced the new Xone:DB2 four-channel MIDI mixer with an interal USB soundcard and a crazy effects and EQ section that is sure to get the mixing DJ's very excited. The DB2 mixer is the more affordable "younger" brother of the Xone:DB4, but is still full of most of the important features that has made the DB4 so successful. It is still a full MIDI controller and can work with any DJ Software out there on the market today and it can also link with the new Xone:K2 software controller via the new X:LINK connection port. More details inside.

On-hand were the entire line of Vestax DJ Products like the VCI-100mk2, VCI-300, Typhoon, and the Pad One DJ controllers. Allen & Heath showed off the Xone:DB4 Mixer, Xone:DX, and all of the other current Xone Mixer offerings. There was also a nice demo of the Xone DB4 Mixer working in perfect harmony with a Xone:DX Midi controller. Watch the video inside.
When the Allen & Heath teams aren't busy making DJ mixers that we all love and adore so much, they are out there making huge iLive custom mixing machines for multi-million dollar venues that require bar-none stadium performance as well as best-in-class sound quality. From the Courts of the NBA all the way to a gospel church in Memphis, Allen & Heath knows what they are doing when it comes to stadium sound.
